Every sport performer will benefit from proper strength training because you are using a full range of motion. Strength training will help to hold back some of the negative responses to sports training, such as tissue and joint damage, muscle wasting, muscular imbalances and poor cardiovascular conditioning. Some athletes believe that they need to mimic their action in their sport with resistance added to the action in order to become more powerful or faster at that particular activity. This is not true. If you increase your muscle in the correct manner, performing proper strength training techniques, then greater muscular strength will produce greater muscular endurance. Proper strength training will build muscle tissue, which increases flexibility, and it will also improve power and speed. In addition, you must also practice your skill to be good at your sport with this newfound speed and power.
