Abstract

This study aimed to determine the effects of resistance training with different focus attention on muscular strength adaptation. Thirty (n = 30, mean age = 21.60 ± 1.00 years old) healthy men were recruited and were divided into three groups; i) internal focus, ii) external focus and iii) control condition group. All participants underwent six weeks of resistance training with different focus attention instructions were given during the training based on their groups. 1RM strength test for squat and deadlift were conducted prior and after the six weeks. Results showed that all groups managed to improve in the post test. It was found that external focus group obtained greater percentage of improvement compared to the other two groups. As the conclusion, external focus attention instructions were suggested to be adopted during resistance training as it was shown to be the most effective in improving muscular strength.
