    When aiming to increase stretch-shortening cycle you need which components

    • A.

      Skillful, multi-joint movements

    • B.

      Forces transmitted through the kinetic chain

    • C.

      Simple movements

    • D.

      Brief work periods

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Skillful, multi-joint movements
    B. Forces transmitted through the kinetic chain
    D. Brief work periods
    Explanation
    To increase the stretch-shortening cycle, skillful, multi-joint movements are necessary as they involve multiple muscle groups and joints, allowing for greater force production and energy storage. Forces transmitted through the kinetic chain are also important as they enable efficient transfer of energy from one body segment to another, enhancing the stretch-shortening cycle. Brief work periods are required to maintain the explosive nature of the movements and prevent fatigue from compromising the stretch-shortening cycle. Simple movements, on the other hand, may not fully engage the stretch-shortening cycle and may not facilitate the desired improvements.

      Mid flight

    • C.

      Late flight

    • D.

      Early support

    • E.

      Late support

    Correct Answer
    E. Late support
    Explanation
    Late support refers to the phase of sprinting where the foot is in contact with the ground and is supporting the body weight. During this phase, the hip flexors are lengthening eccentrically, the knee extensors are contracting concentrically to extend the knee, and the calf muscles are contracting concentrically to flex the foot. This phase occurs after mid flight, when the foot is transitioning from being off the ground to being in contact with the ground again.

  • 8. 

    One coaching point in relation to sprinting is to emphasize brief ground support times in order to achieve a ________________.

    Correct Answer
    increased stride rate
    rapid stride rate
    greater stride rate
    Explanation
    To achieve a faster sprinting speed, it is important to focus on reducing the time your foot spends on the ground during each stride. By emphasizing brief ground support times, you can increase your stride rate, which refers to the number of strides you take in a given time period. This means that you will be able to cover more ground in less time, resulting in a faster sprinting speed. Therefore, the correct answer is increased stride rate, rapid stride rate, and greater stride rate.

  • 9. 

    Which is not a component of coordinative abilities

    • A.

      Balance

    • B.

      Combinatory ability

    • C.

      Rhythm

    • D.

      Strength

    • E.

      Differentiation

    Correct Answer
    D. Strength
    Explanation
    Strength is not considered a component of coordinative abilities because coordinative abilities primarily involve the integration and control of body movements, rather than the raw power or force produced by muscles. Coordinative abilities include balance, combinatory ability, rhythm, and differentiation, all of which contribute to the efficient and effective execution of motor skills. Strength, on the other hand, refers to the ability of muscles to exert force, which is important for tasks requiring power and resistance, but not necessarily for coordination.
