Duration of static stretching Muscles Again, there has been a widely debated topic as to the time it actually takes for adaptations to occur and muscle length to change. For significant changes to occur to a muscle’s length, the stretch must be sustained for between 20 and 30 seconds, repeated a number of times and then continued over a period of weeks. It would therefore be our suggestion that a stretching programme involves each stretch lasting 30 s, being repeated 5 times, and that it is carried out at least twice a day over a month-long period for significant changes to be noticed.

As most of us know, it is difficult to force several litres of fluid down over a short period of time. Many athletes avoid drinking as they say the resultant passing of urine frequently either upsets their training programme or disturbs their night’s sleep. However, we can train our bladder easily if we are patient. If you are taking inadequate fluid intake then plan to increase this over a 7-day period. Initially the bladder will empty more frequently but after a few days it will adapt and expand (it is just a muscle bag after all) and you will find that you revert back to your normal frequency but just pass larger volumes instead.

Energy values Energy in the form of ATP is derived from carbohydrates (glucose), fats and proteins but which energy system is used is determined by the following factors: • • • • • • Type of activity performed Intensity of activity Duration of activity Frequency of activity Fitness level of the athlete Diet of the athlete. 45 Chapter |3| Nutrition If you intensify the level of activity then the body transfers from a fat source to a glucose source of energy. However, the longer you exercise, more fat is metabolised in preference to glucose in an attempt to conserve the limited supply of glucose within the muscles and liver.
