Optimising Transference

No items found.

So what's this “dynamic correspondence” all about? Well it was coined by Yuri Verkoshansky to denote the ability of prescribed exercises and/or training programs to improve sporting performance. We know it as transference and a lot of our focus is finding exercises that optimise strength and power transference to the activity/sport of interest.

As the diagram shows not all strength needs to transfer and we can have general, non-specific strength phases that can be used for certain purposes e.g. hypertrophy, tissue resilience, etc. However, if you want a strength training method to maximise dynamic correspondence then think seriously about using wearable resistance (WR) as part of what you do, as this is specific strength training. That is, any strength gains are likely transferred to the movements you are targeting i.e. optimising transference.
