The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of concurrent strength and endurance training on indices of strength power and endurance performance in female games players. Twelve female games athletes (age 19.6+0.9 years) were assigned to either strength training-only (ST – n=5) or concurrent strength and endurance training (SET – N=7). Strength training required the participants to complete two training sessions a week in the form of conventional resistance training. The participants in the SET group completed the same strength training as the ST group accompanied by two additional endurance training sessions in the form of interval training. Indices of strength, power and endurance were measured pre and post 6-week intervention period. Both ST and SET resulted in significant gains in strength and endurance (p < 0.05); with no significant difference between the ST and SET groups. Only the SET induced a significant increase in power post intervention (p < 0.05). The present results enable the rejection of the interference hypothesis for the case of female athletes participating in a regime of two strength training sessions and two interval training session’s per week. Results document an effective training protocol to improve strength, endurance and power for games players and support prescription of concurrent training under defined conditions, in which exercise intensity and training frequency are considered.
