To compare regimens of concurrent strength and endurance training, 26 male basketball players were matched for stature, body composition, and physical activity level. Subjects completed different training programs for 7 weeks, 4 days per week. Groups were as follows: (a) the strength group (S; n = 7) did strength training; (b) the endurance group (E; n = 7) did endurance training; (c) the strength and endurance group (S 1 E; n = 7) combined strength and endurance training; and (d) the control…

Maximal strength, power, and aerobic endurance adaptations to concurrent strength and sprint interval training
Preliminary findings suggest that performing concurrent sprint interval and strength training does not attenuate the strength response when compared to ST alone, while also improves aerobic performance measures, such as VO2max at the same time.
The Effect of Strength Training on Three-Kilometer Performance in Recreational Women Endurance Runners
This study found no negative or compatibility problems when heavy strength training was added to an endurance running program, and a nonsignificant increase in improvement for 3-km times was evident.
Effects of intra-session concurrent endurance and strength training sequence on aerobic performance and capacity
Circuit training immediately after individualised intermittent endurance training in the same session (E+S) produced greater improvement in the 4 km time trial and aerobic capacity than the opposite order or each of the training programmes performed separately.
It can be concluded that both CDER and CPER protocols were similarly effective in positive transformation of body composition, aerobic power and muscular endurance.
The effect of strength training on 3km performance in recreational female endurance runners
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether a strength training program, as an additive to endurance training, would cause significant improvements in 3km run time in a group of recreational
Concurrent training with different aerobic exercises.
The present results suggest that in young women, concurrent training performed twice a week promotes similar neuromuscular adaptations to strength training alone, regardless of the type and the intensity in which the aerobic training is performed.
Combined strength and endurance training in competitive swimmers.
Two weekly dry-land strength training sessions for 11 weeks increase tethered swimming force in competitive swimmers and further improves middle distance swimming performance, while two weekly sessions of dry land strength training improves the swimming force.
Effects of resistance, endurance, and concurrent exercise on training outcomes in men.
Conurrent training performed by young, healthy men does not interfere with strength development, but may hinder development of maximal aerobic capacity.
Concurrent Training in Elite Male Runners: The Influence of Strength Versus Muscular Endurance Training on Performance Outcomes
It is concluded that concurrent training for both SG and ESG groups led to improved maximal strength, RE, and PV with no significant effects on the V[Combining Dot Above]O2 kinetics pattern.
Concurrent Training Enhances Athletes' Strength, Muscle Endurance, and Other Measures
It is concluded that serial CE produces adaptations greater than those reported in the literature for single-mode (strength) training in athletes, whereas integrated CE produces discernibly greater gains than serial CE.


The Interference Effects of Training for Strength and Endurance Simultaneously
This study compared the effects of three preseason training programs on endurance, strength, power, and speed. Subjects were divided into four groups: the endurance (E) group completed a running
Interference of strength development by simultaneously training for strength and endurance

It is demonstrated that simultaneously training for S and E will result in a reduced capacity to develop strength, but will not affect the magnitude of increase in VO2 max.
Compatibility of high-intensity strength and endurance training on hormonal and skeletal muscle adaptations.
It is indicated that the combination of strength and endurance training results in an attenuation of the performance improvements and physiological adaptations typical of single-mode training.
Comparison of two regimens of concurrent strength and endurance training.
It is concluded that same day (vs different day) concurrent strength and endurance training may impede strength development without impeding hypertrophy and same day training may enhance increases in CS activity but not VO2max or weight lifting endurance.
Consequences of combining strength and endurance training regimens.
It is concluded that simultaneous training may inhibit the normal adaptation to either training program when performed alone, and the extent of the interference probably depends on the nature and intensity of the individual training program.
Incompatibility of endurance- and strength-training modes of exercise.
Twenty-two male and female subjects trained for 7 wk for endurance (group E), for strength (group IS), or for both strength and endurance (group C) to evaluate the effect of concurrent performance of
The Effect of Endurance Running on Training Adaptations in Women Participating in a Weight Lifting Program
Twenty-five sedentary women, 18–30 years of age, were studied to determine the effects of an endurance running program on leg strength gains from a weight training program. Subjects were randomly
Strength training effects on aerobic power and short-term endurance.
Evidence is provided that HRT is capable of dramatically increasing short-term endurance, when the muscles involved in the training are used almost exclusively during the testing without an accompanying increase in Vo2max.
Effects of simultaneous training for strength and endurance on upper and lower body strength and running performance.
It is concluded that gains in strength were somewhat compromised by the simultaneous run training, and that improvements in strength and run performance were independent of LR and HR training intensity.
The effects of strength training on endurance performance and muscle characteristics.
The present data suggest that increased leg strength does not improve cycle endurance performance in endurance-trained, female cyclists.
