DETERMINANTS OF PERFORMANCE IN ENDURANCE SPORTS
by H.-C. Holmberg
Maximal (peak) oxygen uptake, the lactate threshold and efficiency during exercise are often regarded as major determinants of endurance performance. What about ... Capacity for anaerobic energy production? Strength/power/speed? Technique and equipment? Training? ... For successful athletic outcomes it is vital to be aware of the multiple factors that affect endurance performance and to understand the training practices that are effective in improving endurance capacity ...
STRENGTH TRAINING IN ENDURANCE SPORTS: PROS AND CONS
by Iñigo Mujika
The effects of strength training on endurance athletic performance have been the subject of a long and ongoing debate among athletes, coaches and sport scientists... recent research on highly trained athletes suggests that strength training can be successfully prescribed to enhance endurance performance ...
COMBINED STRENGTH AND POWER TRAINING FOR OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE GAINS: A BIOMECHANICAL APPROACH
by Robert U. Newton, Jacob Earp and Prue Cormie
High velocity of takeoff, release or impact is the primary outcome dictating performance in a wide range of sports requiring sprinting, jumping, throwing, kicking or striking... Performance of highly spectacular human movement as exhibited in sports requiring very high force, velocity and power involves highly complex interactions of physiological, neural and mechanical phenomena... Developing strength and power through physical training requires solid understanding of these mechanisms ...
ADAPTATION TO EARLY MORNING VS. AFTERNOON RESISTANCE TRAINING: SKELETAL MUSCLE HYPERTROPHY AND CELL SIGNALLING
by Sedliak, Buzgó, Cvečka, Hamar, Laczo, Zelko, Zeman, Okuliarová, Ahtiainen, Häkkinen, Hulmi, Nilsen, Raastad
Morning neuromuscular deficit, meaning that an individual is on average 5 to 10 percent weaker compared to the rest of the day ... similar levels of muscle fibre hypertrophy could be achieved regardless of which time of the day the training sessions were executed ... but y larger variability in hypertrophic adaptation in the morning ...
CORRELATION BETWEEN CORE STABILITY, CORE STRENGTH AND CORE ENDURANCE
by Saeterbakken, Navarset, Kroken, Fimland, Van den Tillaar
Core training has been used in rehabilitation, injury prevention, enhance general health and performance among athletes ... Core training can be divided into
1) core stability training, 2) core strengthening training and 3) core endurance training ... when designing a training program for the core muscles, one must use training approaches that are specific to the aim of the training ...
ACUTE EFFECTS OF A STRENGTH TRAINING SESSION ON ENDURANCE RUNNING
by Taipale, Schumann, Mikkola, Sorvisto, Kyröläinen, Nummela, Häkkinen
Running economy was clearly affected by performing Strength prior to Endurnce in both men and women ... Fatigue induced by a strength training session immediately prior to endurance running exercise affects neuromuscular characteristics of maximal strength, muscle activation and explosive strength in men and maximal strength in women ...
THE QUADRATIC NATURE OF THE RELATIONSHIP OF STRENGTH TO PERFORMANCE AMONG SHOT PUTTERS
by Lawrence W. Judge, and David Bellar
The competitive performance of a shot putter in track and field can be characterized as a very aggressive display of strength, power, and technique ... Most sources of training information for coaches suggest that all three lifts need to be covered within a training plan for a shot put athlete ... both significant linear and quadratic trends exist that relate 1RM measures of the power clean, back squat and bench press to the personal best of shot put athletes ...
THE EFFECT OF STRENGTH AND POWER TRAINING ON THROWING PERFORMANCE:
COMPOUND vs. COMPLEX TRAINING
by Stasinaki, Gloumis, Zaras, Methenitis, Karampatsos, Georgiadis, Terzis
Throwing performance is based upon muscular strength and power ... throwing performance can improve more after 6 weeks of strength and power training with compound than with complex training in moderately-trained individuals ... novice throwers can increase their throwing performance by implementing strength and power training stimuli in alternative training days, at least during short training periods up to 6 weeks ... It seems that performing strength and power training exercises one after the other in the same training day is not favorable for throwing performance ...
TIME COURSE CHANGES IN ANAEROBIC POWER DURING DAILY 2 WEEK SPRINT
TRAINING FOLLOWED BY SHORT-TERM DETRAINING
by Hasegawa, Ijichi, Morishima, Sasaki, Kageta, Mori, Goto
Adaptation to sprint training is dependent on the duration of exercise, recovery between repetitions, total volume and frequency of training bouts ... power output of supramaximal pedaling test improved by 12 sessions of daily training followed by a week of detraining period. It is possible that supercompensation is involved in improvement of sprint performance following short-term detraining period ...
STRENGTH TRAINING VS CONCURRENT TRAINING IN NON-LINEAR PERIODIZATION: EFFECTS ON STRENGTH GAIN IN ADULT WOMEN
by de Souza Bezerra, de Oliveira Andrade, Rossato, Ceselles, da Silva, Miranda, Simão
The Strength Training is more efficient in gaining strength in the lower limb in adult women and this gain can be enhanced when the nonlinear periodization is used... Although there is also increasing muscle strength when the Concurrent Training is applied, it happens on a lower scale ...
ACUTE EFFECTS OF JUMPING AND SPRINTING ON HAMMER THROWING PERFORMANCE
by Karampatsos, Polychroniou, Georgiadis, Terzis
Recently, it was reported that 3 consecutive counter movement jumps or a bout of 20 m sprinting, induce an acute increase in shot put performance in experienced shot putters ... results suggest that performing 3 Counter Movement Jumps (i.e squat jump) or one bout of 20m sprint with maximum effort just before hammer throwing, may be a useful method for acute increases in performance in experienced hammer throwers ... might be attributed to the phenomenon of post activation potentiation ...
