Strength training for the prevention of sports injuries

Is there a dose-response relationship?

This systematic review found consistent evidence of a dose-response effect between strength training and its preventive effect on sports injuries: increased strength training volume and intensity led to sports injury risk reduction despite the differences in populations and interventions.

It is also worth noting that the analysed studies were generally well-designed and executed, had high compliance rates, were safe, and attained consistently favourable results across four different acute and overuse injury outcomes.
