Among the genes associated with superior athletic ability in humans are the I allele of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene and the ATN3 gene which separately are associated with superior endurance performance, and the ER22/23EK polymorphism of the glucocorticoid receptor gene (NR3C1) which is associated with arm and leg muscle strength in men but not women. 2015;29(8):2115–21. velocity relationship.

The literature indicates that (a) maximum strength is moderately to strongly related to endurance capabilities and associated factors, a relationship that is likely stronger for high intensity exercise endurance (HIEE) activities than for low intensity exercise endurance (LIEE); (b) strength training can increase both HIEE and LIEE, the effect being greater for HIEE; (c) the volume of strength training plays a role in endurance adaptation; and (d) mechanical specificity and training program variables also play a role in the degree of adaptation.

Explosive force is the ability to increase force or torque as rapidly as possible during a voluntary contraction from a low or resting level (Maffiuletti et al., 2016) and is primarily quantified as the rate of force development (RFD) (Aagaard et al., 2002). players [Abstract]. 121. 87.
