“The main task is to develop differentiated and specific programs for fast twitch and slow twitch dominant athletes.” –H. Kraaijenhof
Chapter 5 of The Manual (CVASP, 2016), focuses on the idea of muscle fiber type specific training and how it should be one of the tools utilized by a strength coach to get results. This chapter, written by Dutch sprint coach Henk Kraaijenhof, is very easy to read and the points made are straightforward. The simple fact of training the muscle fibers the athletes use in their respective sports is a concept we all understand but perhaps not enough attention has been given to this area in your sport training. Something as easy as muscle fiber type identification can seem like a pointless endeavor, especially for a strength coach working with 25+ athletes on a sport team, but Henk does a great job at showing the feasibility this kind of profiling can produce. A strength coach can expect a practical approach to using specific muscle fiber type training in their programming and the benefits for its use.
