Flywheel training vs. Weight training


The purpose of this meta analysis was to examine the effect of flywheel (FW) resistance training with Eccentric Overload (FW - EOT) on muscle size and functional capacities (i.e strength and power) in athletes and healthy subjects, and to compare FW - induced adaptations with those triggered by traditional resistance exercises.


This meta - analysis provides evidence supporting the superiority of FW - EOT, compared with traditional weight - stack exercise, to promote skeletal muscle adaptations in terms of strength, power and size in healthy subjects and athletes.
