Abstract

ALTHOUGH THE FIELD OF STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING IS ABUNDANT WITH RESEARCH AND COMMENTARY WITH RESPECT TO THE EXERCISE OR SPORT SCIENCES, LESS IS KNOWN ABOUT PHILOSOPHY. THE PURPOSE OF THIS ARTICLE IS TO REVIEW HOW THE TERM PHILOSOPHY HAS BEEN USED IN STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING, TO CLARIFY ITS USE, AND TO ARGUE FOR ITS INCLUSION AS A DISCIPLINE IN THE FIELD. FURTHERMORE, THIS PAPER PROPOSES THAT PRACTITIONERS ARE “USING PHILOSOPHY” WHEN THEY SYNTHESIZE RESEARCH AND PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF THEIR OWN PHILOSOPHY OF TRAINING.
