Depending on the training regimen, frequency work can help improve recovery and progress. While some people fear high frequency work will lead to overtraining, it can be done safely with the right programming and recovery strategies in place. It can also help with skill acquisition, especially for more complex movements.
Frequency refers to how many cycles (or complete cycles) an alternating current or voltage waveform repeats in a second. The term is most often used in physics to describe electromagnetic waves, such as light and radio waves or the motion of electrical charges (either current or voltage). Frequency is usually expressed in hertz, an international unit of measure equal to one cycle per second. It may also be written in decimals, such as Hz, or in exponential form, such as kilohertz (kHz) or megahertz (MHz).
In music, the frequency of an instrument is determined by its resonance and vibration, which can change with its tuning, amplifiers and other factors. The frequency of an instrument can also be altered by adjusting its volume or amplitude. Decreased frequencies produce a dull sound, while higher frequencies can produce a more powerful sound.
Employees are paid on a variety of pay frequencies, including weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, monthly or other. Generally, these pay frequencies are dictated by the state where the employee works, although federal laws govern certain aspects of wages such as minimum wage, overtime, hours worked, recordkeeping and child labor.
