Whether you are an athlete, a trainer or a coach, this course will teach you all the fundamentals that you need to know when building strength and power. Since those concepts apply to all sports, this course is perfect for you, if you want to build strength and power specifically for your preferred sport.

As a trained biomechanist, a basketball trainer and an athlete myself, I study the science of human locomotion and find ways to analyze and optimize movements. This course contains lots of valuable scientifically proven knowledge that I have gained over the years, put together into 60+ lectures and almost 4 hours of content. Let me share it with you!

I will take you through all the important matters related to strength and power training, starting with the functioning of muscle, the strength qualities, all the way to some practical training examples.


After finishing this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the purpose of certain exercises
  • Build your training based on your specific needs
  • Unleash your genetic potential
  • Make the most out of every workout
  • Create your own long term training program


The following topics will be covered in this course:

Muscle Structure

  • How are muscles built?
  • Which types of muscles and muscle fiber types are there?
  • How do muscles contract?
  • What’s the relationship between the force a muscle can produce and its length?
  • Which body structures contribute a high force output apart from the muscles?

Muscle Operations

  • Which muscle contraction forms are there?
  • What’s the relationship between the force production of a muscle and its contraction velocity?
  • How do muscles and tendons interact and why is it important that they do?
  • What is muscle hypertrophy and how much hypertrophy is needed for your sport?
  • Should we train to fatigue or with sore muscles?

Nervous System And Motor Control

  • What’s the role of the nervous system regarding strength and power training?
  • Which components does the nervous system consist of?
  • How can we train our nervous system to increase our performance?
  • What is proprioception and how can it help us to get significantly better?

Strength Qualities

  • In which individual qualities can we divide strength?
  • How can we train those qualities and how do they influence each other?
  • What’s the relationship between maximal strength and maximal velocity/speed?
  • What exactly is the meaning of power in relation to strength?
  • How can we track our training progress?

Training Principles

  • Which qualities define overall athleticism?
  • What’s the importance of mobility/flexibility and how does it contribute to our performance?
  • How should we approach training?
  • How can we build functional hypertrophy that serves our sport?
  • How can we train certain sport-specific qualities?

Training Adaptations

  • How do our muscles adapt after exercise?
  • How can we optimize our training adaptations?
  • Where does our body draw energy from during high intensities?
  • What should we eat for optimal performance?
  • How does breathing affect our performance?
  • How can we minimize the recovery time and which popular recovery methods are there?

Bonus: Creating Your Own Training Program

  • How can we control our training load while maximizing our adaptations?
  • How to design a long term training program?
  • How to structure a single workout?
  • Which training phases are there within a year and how does our approach change during those phases?


DO NOT PURCHASE THIS COURSE if you are looking for a detailed training program with different exercises on how to build strength and power. There is an exercise library in the “Additional Content” section and I perform different options for possible exercises in this course. However, the focus will be on the science and the fundamentals behind strength and power training in order for you to understand the purpose of training and certain exercises. Therefore, do not expect a structured training program.
