Special Issue Information
Strength and conditioning are a fundamental aspect of sports performance. Strength training is also key to maintain and/or promote health, regardless of sex and age. Over the last two decades, we have seen an exponential increase in the number of studies dealing with questions related to strength training and exercise/sports performance. Despite this, there are still notable gaps in the literature that are in need of future research. For instance, the dose–response relations of strength training for physical fitness and injury prevention, the transfer effect of strength/power training to sport-specific performance, the effects of (accentuated) eccentric training on physical fitness and health, and the effects of advanced resistance training approaches (e.g., superset training, whole-body vibration training, neuromuscular electrical stimulation training, complex training, and blood-flow restriction training) on physical fitness. Additionally, another urgent aspect that requires the attention of the scientific community is the lack of studies that have collected both behavioral (performance) and physiological data. This is crucial to establish not only the effects of resistance training on physical performance but also to associate these adaptations with their respective underlying mechanisms.
This Special Issue seeks the collection of high-quality original and review (e.g., narrative, systematic review with meta-analysis) articles that add to the existing literature and provide useful and evidence-based recommendations for practitioners.
We are looking forward to your valuable contributions.
