Weight training is now part of the training program for many endurance sportsmen and athletes, but do the weight training programs they usually take part in really improve their performance? While there is a consensus in the scientific literature on the type of strength training that can improve performance in endurance sports, we are far from seeing the same consensus on the ground.
In this course, we will first review the scientific literature to identify the type of muscle training that can improve performance and the mechanisms responsible for performance gains. We will then discuss more practical aspects, such as the planning of muscular quality training in a year of training and the appropriate training methods for the endurance athlete, depending on his or her age and level of development.
