Background Information

Background information resources give a quick synopsis of a topic. This can be helpful before diving in to the more advanced and more technical journal literature. 

When searching these resources,

  • use broad terms and concepts
    •  lifting or training instead of bench press or squat
  • use synonyms or related concepts
    • periodization = programming, annual calendar, etc.
    • workouts--> training, lifting and running
