Abstract

ABSTRACT: MANY SPORTS REQUIRE ATHLETES TO POSSESS BOTH STRENGTH AND POWER FOR OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE. HOWEVER, BECAUSE OF TIME CONSTRAINTS, IT IS OFTEN DIFFICULT FOR ATHLETES TO DEDICATE THE TIME NEEDED FOR BOTH THE TRAINING AND RECOVERY TO PROMOTE THE DEVELOPMENT OF STRENGTH AND POWER. COMPLEX TRAINING (CT) IS A METHOD USED TO ENHANCE BOTH STRENGTH AND POWER IN THE SAME SESSION, THUS PROVIDING AN EFFICIENT TRAINING METHOD. ALTHOUGH FURTHER RESEARCH ON CT IS NEEDED, THE PURPOSE OF THIS ARTICLE IS TO PROVIDE THE READER WITH A REVIEW AND RECOMMENDATIONS ON HOW BEST TO IMPLEMENT CT.
