Immediate Effects of Endurance Exercise on Subsequent Strength Performance

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


When strength training is conducted subsequent to endurance loading, central and peripheral fatigue mechanisms can contribute to decremented strength-type performance. Any decremented strength performance may be influenced by programme variables including the relief period between endurance and strength loadings, the modality, volume and intensity of endurance loading, and the method by which strength-type performance is assessed. The aforementioned programme variables are discussed here, as is the possible potentiating effect of endurance loading, on strength performance. The available evidence base is reviewed and implications for practice and recommendations for effectively programming strength training/performance around endurance loadings are presented.
