Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of a 26-weekindividualized and supervised strength and injury prevention program onperformance enhancement in young female volleyball players whocompleted resistance training with either a supervised and individualizedtraining program (experimental group, n=10) or an unsupervised nonindividualizedtraining program (control group, n=17). Exposure and injurydata were collected during the 2006-2007 season (baseline season) andthe 26-week program was conducted during the 2007-2008 season(intervention season). All players were tested for physical performance. Atpost-test, the players in the experimental group had improved significantlymore than the players in the control group for squat (p<0.0001), benchpress (p=0.048), push-ups (p=0.02) and sit-ups (p<0.0001) but not for thevertical jump test. Thirty-five percent (6/17) of the players from the controlgroup and 80% (8/10) of the players in the experimental group completedthe resistance training with compliance of no less than 50%. The presentstudy shows the importance of individualization and supervision forresistance training in young female athletes when it comes to compliance,strength gains and performance.
