Strength training is a crucial component of athletic performance and plays a critical role in improving muscle strength, power, and endurance. This Special Issue aims to explore the latest research and advancements in the field of strength training and its impact on enhancing athletic performance. Therefore, we welcome contributions on various topics related to strength training, including:
- Resistance training and its effects on muscle strength, muscle hypertrophy, power, and/or endurance;
- Effect on altering technique variations on kinematics and kinetics in different resistance exercises;
- The impact of strength training on the enhancement of athletics performance;
- The use of technology/data analytics in performance monitoring in strength training and the enhancement of athletic performance;
- Influence on anthropometrics, age, gender, and other relevant factors on performance enhancement in strength and athletic performance.
We invite authors to original articles, review papers, or case studies to provide valuable insights and contributions to the advancement of the sports science field.
Prof. Dr. Roland Van den Tillaar
