Acute and Long-Term Power Responses to Power Training : Observations on the Training of an Elite Power

  title={Acute and Long-Term Power Responses to Power Training : Observations on the Training of an Elite Power},
  author={Daniel Baker}
BECAUSE OF THE LIMITED TIME frame for force application in most sports, an often desired result of the strength training process is increased power (force × velocity) (20, 22). Power development (and furthermore, how power is affected by training variable manipulation) is of keen interest to coaches, athletes, and sport scientists. The purpose of this article is to discuss the acute and long-term responses to power training in an elite power athlete. Wilks (21) has stated that training programs… CONTINUE READING
