The Cross-Education Effect;
What It Is & How To Use It



Dr Claire Minshull PhD, BSc, PGCHE

The cross-education (CE) phenomenon describes the strength gain in the opposite untrained limb following unilateral contralateral resistance training. In healthy populations the CE effect can induce strength gains of up to 50% (in the untrained limb) relative to the improvements in the trained limb. In clinical populations CE can attenuate declines in strength caused by surgery, and, or, immobilisation compared to standard care. Learn all about CE, the evidence base and importantly how to deploy to maximal effect in clinical populations.
