Where Is The Female-Focused Strength & Conditioning Research?

Posted by BridgeAthletic on Aug 26, 2019 7:50:14 AM

Equal Training Needs Equal Research

 

Since launching the PowerUp in January, our team has found a serious lack of research focused on female athlete development, injury and performance. 

With few resources available, training protocols are less informed, leaving many with little confidence in their strength and conditioning plans and injury-mitigation preparedness. 

 

The Latest Research

Plyometric training can improve jump performance in females under 18 years old. This is the first study to evaluate the effects of plyometric training (PT) on female youth.

There is little research focused on how different training protocols impact female youth as they mature.

Thus, these researchers sought out to evaluate the existing literature and consider how future research can become more inclusive and informative.

Introduce New Training in the Off-Season

 

 

This is the latest research on resistance training (RT) and its impact on running performance.

The study found that one lower body RT session impairs sub-max running performance for several days post-exercise.

Why is this important? While your athletes might not be training for the next Ultra marathon, it could inform how you introduce new protocols across your training seasons. This research is among the many pointing to the importance of a 'transition' period between seasons, a topic we're focused on due to the latest NCAA guidelines.
