Special Issue Information
Strength training, whilst a staple of physical conditioning for sports and athletic performance, is continuing to gain importance as a recommendation for the lay person to improve health and longevity. Strength training provides numerous health related physiological benefits including reduced risk of cancer, increased metabolic rate, reduction in low back pain, increased bone mineral density, reduced blood pressure, and improved muscle quality and insulin sensitivity in persons with type-2 diabetes. Furthermore, the typical performance and aesthetic goals of increasing strength and muscle mass, are indeed predictors of longevity and reduction in all-cause mortality.
With growing evidence to support the use of strength training to improve cardiovascular fitness, and our ever-increasing understanding of the muscle as an endocrine organ through the release of myokines, we invite researchers to submit their articles across the broad spectrum of strength training for human health and performance.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to present new research in strength training prescription and to provide new insights regarding established strength training models. We invite investigators to contribute with case studies, original research articles and review articles that would represent and stimulate continuing efforts to answer questions on the acute and chronic effects of strength training for human health and performance; whether this be in symptomatic and clinical populations, adolescents and untrained younger- or older-adults, or athletic populations.
We look forward to receiving your contribution.
