Accommodation resistance is a training technique that may improve strength and power gains beyond those achieved by traditional free weights.
In this method, chains are either added on a free-weight bar and combined with traditional plates or added to the bar as the entire load. The aim of the current study was to compare the effectiveness of accommodation and constant resistance training methods during a four-week period on maximal strength and power in trained athletes. This study was comprised of 24 trained athletes, including 16 trained males [8 Wushu athletes (Kung-Fu) and 8 wrestlers, age: 20.5 ± 2.00 yrs. Participants were initially tested on weight, body circumference, fat percent, upper and lower body maximal strength, determined by the 1-repetition maximum (1RM) test, which determines the greatest amount of weight a person can successfully lift, and upper and lower body power.
Participants were equally randomized to either accommodation or constant resistance training groups.
