SPECIFICITY OF TRAINING 8
This third issue of Volume 22 of Coaching Science Abstracts reviews articles concerned with the specificity of training, a principle that is often overlooked in the pursuit of training variety, and the ill-advised and wasteful concept of cross-training. Seven previous issues, namely Volume 1(2), Volume 4(2), Volume 7(3), Volume 10(3), Volume 13(3), Volume 16(3), and Volume 19(3) also dealt with this topic. The information from those sources, as well as that contained in this issue, will yield an extensive knowledge base of recent research in the specificity of sports conditioning.
