Concurrent Aerobic and Strength Training: Scientific Basics and Practical Applications

Front Cover
Moritz Schumann, Bent R. Rønnestad
Springer, Oct 31, 2018 - Medical - 416 pages
This book provides an extensive guide for exercise and health professionals, students, scientists, sport coaches, athletes of various sports and those with a general interest in concurrent aerobic and strength training. Following a brief historical overview of the past decades of research on concurrent training, in section 1 the epigenetic as well as physiological and neuromuscular differences of aerobic and strength training are discussed. Thereafter, section 2 aims at providing an up-to-date analysis of existing explanations for the interference phenomenon, while in section 3 the training-methodological difficulties of combined aerobic and strength training are elucidated. In section 4 and 5, the theoretical considerations reviewed in previous sections will then be practically applied to specific populations, ranging from children and elderly to athletes of various sports.

Concurrent Aerobic and Strength Training: Scientific Basics and Practical Applications is a novel book on one of the “hot topics” of exercise training. The Editors' highest priority is to make this book an easily understandable and at the same time scientifically supported guide for the daily practice.

About the author (2018)

Dr. Moritz Schumann is a research associate at the Department of Molecular and Cellular Sports Medicine, German Sport University, Cologne. He received his PhD focusing on physiological adaptations to various training modes of concurrent endurance and strength training from the Department of Biology of Physical Activity, University of Jyväskylä (Finland). Dr. Schumann has published numerous international scientific articles discussing methods to optimize concurrent endurance and strength training for both untrained populations and endurance athletes. He has given several national and international presentations for sport and exercise scientists, students and practitioners promoting various aspects of concurrent training and is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. Dr. Schumann is working in a large network of international experts to further scientifically explore the methodological challenges of aerobic and strength training for both athletic and clinical populations.

Prof. Dr. Bent R. Rønnestad is a professor at the Section for Sport Science, Lillehammer, Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences and a consultant for The Norwegian Olympic Federation, providing physiological research and supervision for the Norwegian elite coaches and athletes in endurance and team sports. He received his PhD from the Norwegian School of Sports Sciences where he was focusing on the effect of concurrent endurance and strength training on cycling performance in well-trained cyclists. Prof. Rønnestad has published a large number of international scientific articles focusing on the effects of concurrent strength and endurance training on elite sport performance in road and MTB cycling, cross-country skiing and endurance running. He has also been an invited speaker on various topics of concurrent training at both international and national conferences and symposiums. Therefore, Prof. Rønnestad is part of a large network of international experts which helps to scientifically explore the methodological challenges of combined aerobic and strength training, especially for well-trained populations.
