The Strength and Conditioning Laboratory

Research at Charles University

Strength and conditioning (ranging from the mechanisms and physiology underpinning acute and chronic adaptation to applied research in individual and team settings). We strive to produce high-quality student-driven publications that are useful for the practice of strength and conditioning. All students are not only responsible for their own projects, but also work together as a team to help others in their endeavors, resulting in scientific output and life-long friendships.
