Discipline: You Need It To Reach Your Bodybuilding Potential. - David Robson. Let's face it: walking through our workouts, with a lackluster attitude, will produce little in the way of size gains.

Discipline: You Need It To Reach Your Bodybuilding Potential. - David Robson

We all know those who shuffle from one piece of exercise equipment to another in an aimless fashion, looking at their watches and hoping for their session to come to an end so they can drive home and watch television. One wonders why these people train in the first place. After all, real gains come only from intensive training and their half-hearted sessions, lack the necessary intensity and, more often than not, fail to deliver even minimal results.

We all know real champions push their physiques to the limit and accept nothing but the best from themselves. These people move quickly and purposefully around the gym, like human dynamos with expressions of intensity on their faces - their physiques reflect the intensity they apply. What Is Discipline? Discipline therefore has negative connotations for many. Mental Control. Reverse Pyramid Training! - Randy Herring. Recuperation is your body's ability to recover after exercise.

Reverse Pyramid Training! - Randy Herring

The quicker recovery the quicker strength and mass gains will come. Are you training smart and hard enough? Reverse Pyramid Training means reversing the conventional method for building muscle. Rather than beginning with the lightest weight and doing 10 repetitions for the first set you'll reverse the order and begin your first set with the heaviest weight you can handle for at least 6 repetitions - if your goal is increasing strength and muscle mass.

For each succeeding set you will decrease the weight (pyramid down in weight, hence, the "reverse" pyramid) and increase the reps. To achieve maximum results in the least amount of time you must: 1) Shorten your training time to make it more efficient and productive2) Expand your knowledge on recuperation and performance nutrition, including supplementation3) Learn how to train hard, not long.

Application of Behavior-Change Theories and Methods to Injury Prevention

Andrea Carlson Gielen, Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD 21205 (e-mail: Received August 29, 2002. Accepted February 24, 2003. Abbreviation: HIV, human immunodeficiency virus. Reducing the burden of injury is an international health goal, one that requires an interdisciplinary perspective. Applications of behavioral science to injury prevention lagged behind other approaches during the last half of the 20th century.

In planning for injury prevention and control, there has been a historical tension between the use of “active” (behavioral) strategies and “passive” (structural) strategies (1).

Behavior modification. Description[edit] The first use of the term behavior modification appears to have been by Edward Thorndike in 1911.

Behavior modification

His article Provisional Laws of Acquired Behavior or Learning makes frequent use of the term "modifying behavior".[1] Through early research in the 1940s and the 1950s the term was used by Joseph Wolpe's research group.[2] The experimental tradition in clinical psychology[3] used it to refer to psycho-therapeutic techniques derived from empirical research. It has since come to refer mainly to techniques for increasing adaptive behavior through reinforcement and decreasing maladaptive behavior through extinction or punishment (with emphasis on the former). Behavior modification is a form of Behavior therapy now known as Applied behavior analysis. The Open Behavioral Science Journal.
