The purpose of this paper is to present a new terminology and reclassification proposal for the concept of “coadjuvant training“. In the literature, this concept has been associated with post-injury recovery processes and the general area of prevention. The longstanding preferred approach to optimiser training requires a new review in order to update it. “Coadjuvant training” has evolved enormously to support the health and the performance of athletes through the inclusion of new specialists in new trends in strength training, coaching staff receptive to the benefits of these contents and an increasingly more widespread scientific evidence-based methodology. Updating and enriching this methodological approach, while also reviewing and updating its terminology, taxonomy and contents, will be conducive to progress in this field of knowledge by integrating it more effectively into “optimiser training”, thus using both of them to build the methodological model of “structured training”.
