Cover Story (view full-size image): The purpose of this investigation was to describe the effects of an 8-week concurrent training protocol followed by 4 weeks of explosive strength training cessation. Eight runners completed this study, and results suggest that the energy cost of running improvements observed after the intervention were maintained once explosive strength training was interrupted. Furthermore, a 3000 m time trial revealed a tendency for improved running performance after concurrent training cessation. The novelty aspect of this case report is that explosive strength training cessation might be implemented as a taper strategy with endurance runners. View this paper
