The purposes of this review are to identify the factors that contribute to the transference of strength and power training to sports performance and to provide resistance-training guidelines. Using sprinting performance as an example, exercises involving bilateral contractions of the leg muscles resulting in vertical movement, such as squats and jump squats, have minimal transfer to performance. However, plyometric training, including unilateral exercises and horizontal movement of the whole…

Development of Muscle Mass: How Much Is Optimum for Performance?
TRAINING FOR MUSCLE HYPERTROPHY CAN BE EXPECTED TO INDUCE SOME INCREASE IN TOTAL BODY MASS, AND THIS CAN HAVE POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES FOR ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE. POSITIVE EFFECTS MAY BE
Exploring the practical knowledge of eccentric resistance training in high-performance strength and conditioning practitioners
Habitual use of eccentric exercise has been recognised to increase strength and power; however, the current body of knowledge has limited potential to understand the application of such resistance
The Effects of Different Speed Training Protocols on Sprint Acceleration Kinematics and Muscle Strength and Power in Field Sport Athletes
TLDR
Correctly administered, each training protocol can be effective in improving acceleration, and step length was the major limiting sprint performance factor for the athletes in this study.
Effects of Loaded Squat Exercise with and without Application of Superimposed EMS on Physical Performance.
TLDR
Improvements in strength performance of leg curl muscles caused by superimposed EMS with improvements in strength of antagonistic hamstrings in the S+E group are suggesting the potential of EMS to unloaded (antagonistic) muscle groups.
Coaches’ philosophies on the transfer of strength training to elite sports performance
The objective of the study was to explore coaches’ philosophies regarding strength training (repetitive muscle actions against high loads) and the transfer of strength training to sports performance.
Transfer Between Lifts: Increased Strength in Untrained Exercises
ABSTRACT The principle of specificity confers that physiological adaptations to exercise reflect the specific stimuli applied during an exercise training program. When applied to resistance training
Strength training in soccer with a specific focus on highly trained players
TLDR
The analysis suggests that neuromuscular training improves both physiological and physical measures associated with the high-level performance of soccer players, as well as the effects of concurrent strength and endurance training on the physical capacity of players.
THE EFFECTS OF BETWEEN-SET INTERVENTIONS ON PERFORMANCE
Background – Power restoration between sets of high intensity exercise is an important factor in improving performance. Many interventions, such as sports massage and active recovery, have been

The specificity of strength training: the effect of posture
TLDR
The results supported the concept that posture is important in training as those exercises conducted in similar postures to the training recorded the greatest improvement in performance.
Effect of the movement speed of resistance training exercises on sprint and strength performance in concurrently training elite junior sprinters
TLDR
The present results suggest a lack of velocity-specific performance changes in elite concurrently training sprint runners performing a combination of traditional and semi-specific resistance training exercises.
Anthropometric, strength, and power predictors of sprinting performance.
TLDR
Most of the standard anthropometric, strength and power tests could be poor predictors of sprinting performance and could be based on more specific tests that require more complex measurements.

Neuromuscular Implications and Applications of Resistance Training
TLDR
Although most training studies show increases in EMG, a few have shown increase in strength with no apparent changes in neural drive, which may highlight the importance of motor control and the reorganization of supraspinal inputs.
EMG, Force, and Power Analysis of Sprint-Specific Strength Exercises
This study was undertaken to compare force-time characteristics, muscle power, and electromyographic (EMG) activities of the leg muscles in maximal sprinting and in selected bounding and jumping
Neural Influences on Sprint Running
TLDR
Improved temporal sequencing of muscle activation and/or improved fast twitch fibre recruitment may contribute to superior sprint performance and speed of impulse transmission along the motor axon may also have implications on sprint performance.

TLDR
During the most stressful training weeks of prolonged strength training the level of biologically active unbound testosterone as well as the balance between the androgenic-anabolic activity and the catabolizing effect of glucocorticoids may be of great importance for the trainability of muscular strength.
The effects of a sensorimotor training and a strength training on postural stabilisation, maximum isometric contraction and jump performance.
TLDR
It is concluded that classical strength training with high loads basically improves the mechanical efficiency of the efferent drive on the motoneurons, whereas sensorimotor training alters the afferent input on the central nervous system.
