Special Issue "Biomechanics of Resistance Training - New Trends in Strength and Power Training"
A special issue of Sports (ISSN 2075-4663).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2019)
Resistance training is based on the use of external loading during human movement, where the mechanical variables play a crucial role. The mechanics of exercises can determine the performance outcomes, injury occurrence or the effect of specific training methods (such as post activation potential). Therefore, a great deal practical and theoretical fields can benefit from biomechanical approaches to resistance training.
The are two objectives of this special issue. First of all we would like to present how biomechanical approaches are related to resistance training, and what are the crucial biomechanical variables useful for resistance training practice. Special attention is given, but not limited to, kinematic differences in complex exercises, muscle activity during resistance exercises, the role of movement speed in resistance exercises, the sticking region during maximal and submaximal effort, and mechanical properties of the human body in relation to resistance training. The other objective is to present novel approaches to strength and power training. These can include inovative training devices as well as new methods of resistance training, such as PAP, pre-exhaustion, occlusion ect. We would like to concentrate on empirical research with competitive athletes, not the general public.
