The article examines the effectiveness of actual movement velocity and intention to move explosively as determinants of velocity-specific responses to resistance training. The training of specificity is an essential consideration when developing resistance training programs. It is known that various resistance training programs elicit different neuromuscular adaptations. The concept of the intention to move explosively being more significant than the actual movement velocity became popular among sports professionals and scientists.
