We invite you to submit a study on this Special Issue of Sports, entitled "The Effects of Strength and Power Training on Physical Performance and Body Composition in Young and Older People". This issue aims to present studies about strength and power training in two main aspects: physical performance (e.g., physical function (activities of daily living), strength, power, agility, coordination, endurance, balance, flexibility) and body composition (e.g., muscle mass (hypertrophy or atrophy), lean body mass, fat percentage, obesity, anorexia, sarcopenia). The study participants should be young people (e.g., adolescents and young adults) and/or older adults who were engaged in resistance training programs (e.g., strength and/or power training) for health, rehabilitation, sports performance, and aesthetic purposes (e.g., bodybuilding). Applied studies will be welcome; these may support physical trainers, coaches, personal trainers, physical education teachers, physical therapists, physicians, and nutritionists in their professional activities. This Special Issue will accept original articles, reviews, case studies, and short reports.
