About this Research Topic
Training is the systematic application of stress to enhance physiological capacity and performance. Training design has established principles including periodization, recovery and regeneration, progressive overload, and specificity. The literature includes studies investigating the respective effects of various training regimes, and supplements on performance, or physiological capacity, for example see references within. Knowledge on training design has existed for decades, despite this, many studies neglect key training principles, ultimately to the detriment of the assertions that can be drawn from results.
This topic is designed for researchers to explore how correct design and manipulation of training can drastically alter results and what is accepted knowledge int he broader scientific community.
Keywords: training, exercise research design
