For example, in the execution of a jump to hoops the muscles should not be providing a maximal and continuous strenght both in elevation or hibernation, but they must follow specific schema of neuro-muscular delivery so to avoid that the use of maximal strenght to elevate the body could affect the precision of the action itself, something that would lead to a negative performance. This is the reason why we talk of strength relative to the action.

Abstract

Imagine we have to find a reason why in recent years different sports, including basketball, have been radically changed on a technical, tactical and physical level, and it has made many supporters unfollow this sport. In our opinion, we will surely take in consideration the abandonment of the sports-specific technique for the athletic prowess, since the physical one is more or less the same or slightly reduced. This, of course, is thanks to the management of regulation that the judges have made much more tolerant than the physical contact, something that even at the dawn of this sport wasn't admitted at all. Then, in the 1970s-1980s, we have witnessed a more athletic management of the rules, but always respecting the specific technique of the sport, to finally reach the real struggles for kiloes and muscles at the expense of refinement and technical precision that, in our opinion, has changed the aesthetic essence of the sport, more specifically that of basketball. However, beyond these elements of historical analysis, the truth is that today the basketball player, though in proportion with his role, must be a stronger and more robust athlete and he must be able of standing up to his opponent in matches where the treshold of personal foul has been significantly raised. It goes without saying that to do this and to make the search for the athletes efficient, the selection is based on the role and, above all, on the physical aspect, by lefting the technical evaluation as the last important factor among those valid for a choice. All this has brought coaches, and in particular the physical-athletic trainers, to work more on the strenght, which represents the decisive element and that we will talk about in this paper. In particular, the work is more concentrated on the maximal strenght, the strenght endurance, the explosive strenght and the concept of relative maximal strenght referred to the important neuro-muscular mixture that the athlete has to use in these particular specific actions. For example, in the execution of a jump to hoops the muscles should not be providing a maximal and continuous strenght both in elevation or hibernation, but they must follow specific schema of neuro-muscular delivery so to avoid that the use of maximal strenght to elevate the body could affect the precision of the action itself, something that would lead to a negative performance. This is the reason why we talk of strength relative to the action.
