Exercise Selection: Strength
Exercise selection it can dictate the mechanical specificity of the training (Kawamori & Haff, 2004).
Stone, Pilsk and Collins (2002)transfer of training effects is high when the training exercise is mechanically similar to the actual performance.
Multi- joint exercises for power development will enhance athletic performance (Newton & Kraemer, 1994).
