If your sport requires that you be strong, you should probably include barbells in your S&C. If your sport requires that you run long distances slowly or do something similar, you should probably have some long distance running in there. There are very few disciplines where "just doing the sport" is adequate.
Thanks for pointing this stuff out. MovNat is not so much a sport as it is just a movement discipline kind of like parkour. In MovNat though they do lift a lot of odd, heavy objects and do a lot of climbing and muscle ups on trees, bars, etc. so that's why I was asking if a strength program on top of MovNat would be necessary. I really like the theory behind MovNat but I am not super versed in it yet as I just found out about it, so don't know if building the skills and strength will happen at the same time.
