This paper focuses on the special physical characteristics of curlers and their training methods. Through the analysis of the physical fitness tests and training methods of curlers, it is found that the special physical characteristics of curlers mainly include strength, endurance, coordination and balance. In terms of training methods, this paper introduces specific training methods for these special physical characteristics, including strength training, aerobic training, sensitivity training, and balance training. The results of this study can help guide the training of curlers and improve their competitive level.
