Weightlifting to Enhance Sports Performance

These workshops will commence with a summary of why both maximal and rapid force production are required for enhanced sports performance.

We will then explore a range of modalities that can be used to enhance maximal and rapid force production, with a focus on the use of weightlifting exercises and their derivatives.This will include a summary of the research on weightlifting exercises and their derivatives and how such exercises can be used to enhance force production characteristics and therefore sports performance. Advantages and disadvantages of different training methods will be explored, including a discussion of how these different methods should be combined to enhance sports performance.

We will explore the effect of exercise variation and load on the resulting kinetics and kinematics during weightlifting exercises and discuss the likely adaptive responses to such stimuli. 

Basic infos

  • Workshop will be held in English (Workshop bude prebiehať v anglickom jazyku).
  • 7 teaching hours (od 9:00 do 16:00)
  • Venue: NKMC – Vietnamská 43, Bratislava-Ružinov 
  • Workshop consist of theoretical and practical part.

The aims of the theoretical aspects of the workshop

  • Discuss why both maximal and rapid force production and essential for sports performance.
  • Discuss how weightlifting exercises can be used to enhance sports performance.
  • Compare different training methods and how they should be combined.
  • Explore the effect of exercise variation and load on kinetics and kinematics during weightlifting exercises.

Weightlifting to Enhance Sports Performance: Practical Applications

The interactive practical components of the workshops will include examples of how weightlifting exercises can be programmed to emphasize strength-speed or speed-strength. In addition, progressions and regressions of some of the weightlifting derivatives will be performed and coached, emphasising some of the points from the theoretical aspects of the workshops. Therefore, the aims of the practical sessions are to:

  • Provide examples of how weightlifting exercises can be programmed to emphasize strength-speed and speed-strength.
  • Explore progressions and regressions of weightlifting derivatives, based on technical competency and the desired stimuli.
