The 10th International Conference on Strength Training

The 1st International Conference on Strength Training (ICST) was held in Lahti, organized by the University of Jyväskylä (Finland) in 1998. Since then the conference has taken place on a biannual basis and traversed the globe to countries such as Malaysia, Hungary, Greece, Denmark, USA, Slovakia, Norway, and Italy. We are proud to announce that the 10th International Conference on Strength Training will be held in Kyoto, JAPAN, in 2016!

ICST in Japan will be one of the premier strength training conferences in 2016. Scientists, coaches, trainers, instructors, educators and therapists with research and practice interests in the field of strength training will gather for this event from all over the world to discuss state of the art developments in this field and share new findings in applied physiology, biomechanics, nutrition and training methodologies and applications for strength training.

The Local Organizing Committee and members of the International Scientific Committee sincerely hope you will participate in the 10th ICST and enjoy both the conference knowledge exchanges as well as the beauty of Kyoto, Japan.
