This article will not, therefore, give advice on how to build an athletic preparation with strength training but will highlight some of the most common mistakes.
Strength training to the maximum?
Training is an art based on science, and training without evaluation is an itinerary without destination. Carmelo Bosco
Strength training for sport
Power as the ability to express strength over time
It may happen that the graph does not show a regular bell-shaped line but that there are one or more deflections of the curve before reaching its peak.
As far as team sports are concerned, the situation is slightly different. The question is: to what extent does the improvement of strength and power contribute to the improvement of sports performance?
Strength training in sports
Before starting an athlete's training - in particular strength training - it is necessary to do the necessary tests and evaluations because each person is on his own and each training must be built to measure.
Training muscles and not movements
As Carmelo Bosco said: "Training is an art based on science, and training without evaluation is an itinerary without destination".
