Integrated Performance Paradigm

The Integrated Performance Paradigm describes a model to maximize performance enhancement and injury prevention. This model suggests that concentric muscle actions are preceded by eccentric muscle actions. And for optimal performance, the amount of time to switch from the eccentric-to-concentric contraction is one of the most decisive components to athletic success. There are many factors that contribute to efficient and effective human movement. For example: core stability, core strength, muscular endurance, power, balance, posture, flexibility, coordination, training experience, coaching, etc. In your experience, which single factor is the most important contributor to enhance performance? Why?

Hi,

Interesting question! Let's take a closer look.

RESPONSE:

1. The Integrated Performance Paradigm describes a model to maximize performance enhancement and injury prevention. This model suggests that concentric muscle actions are preceded by eccentric muscle actions. And for optimal performance, the amount of time to switch from the eccentric-to-concentric contraction is one of the most decisive components to athletic success. There are many factors that contribute to efficient and effective human movement. For example: core stability, core strength, muscular endurance, power, balance, posture, flexibility, coordination, training experience, coaching, etc. In your experience, which single factor is the most important contributor to enhance performance? Why?

Because these factors are integrated to maximize enhancement and injury prevention, I believe they work together as a whole and they are therefore ...

Solution Summary

This solution discusses factors that are important contributors to enhance performance and which single factor might be the most important contributor, and why.
