Title: Prevalence and correlates of resistance training skill competence in adolescents.

Summary: The aim of this study was to quantify the prevalence of competence in six foundational resistance training (RT) movement skills and to identify correlates of skill competence. The overall prevalence of competence was low for males and females. Small sex differences were seen for several skills, but not for overall skill competence. Correlates largely differed by sex, but a consistent moderate positive association was found between RT skill competence and muscular fitness.
