This book reviews the latest scientific research in the application and design of sport-specific strength training programmes in three types of sport: a team sport (soccer), a racket sport (badminton) and a water sport (rowing). Generally, training programs designed to improve sports performance involve metabolic training (i.e., aerobic or anaerobic metabolism), functional training (i.e., training to enhance movement), and strength training (i.e., training to enhance muscle capacity). This book highlights the information aforementioned on the topic of sport-specific strength training programs and illustrates examples of these programs in various aspects of physical activities.
