Special Issue "Advances in Neuromuscular Research"
A special issue of Sports (ISSN 2075-4663).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2018)
A variety of neuromuscular adaptations contribute to increases in muscular strength, rate of force development, and power characteristics. Because these characteristics have been shown to positively influence athletic performance, practitioners have sought to identify superior training methods that will enhance these characteristics. While many training methods have been implmented to improve muscular strength, rate of force development, and power, recent literature has identified superior training methods, questioned previously used training methods, and proposed modified training methods in an effort to optimize athlete performance and provide practitioners with more prescription options. It is essential to provide practitioners with information about a variety of training methods so that the best training programs may be implemented for each athletic population. The aim of this Special Issue is to add to the existing body of literature that seeks to provide more information about the most effective methods of resistance training.
