TitleDateViewsBrief Description
Acute Effects of Whole-Body Vibration on Muscle Activity, Strength, and Power 2006 1242 The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of a single bout of whole-body vibration on isometric squat (IS) and countermovement jump (CMJ) performance. Nine moderately resistance-trained men were tested for peak force (PF) during th...
Comparison of Methods to Quantify Volume During Resistance Exercise 2009 461 The purpose of this investigation was to compare 4 different methods of calculating volume when comparing resistance exercise protocols of varying intensities. Ten Appalachian State University students experienced in resistance exercise completed...
A Comparison of Strength and Power Characteristics Between Power Lifters, Olympic Lifters, and Sprinters 1999 9082 The purpose of this investigation was to determine the effect of involvement in power lifting, Olympic lifting, and sprinting on strength and power characteristics in the squat movement. A standard one repetition maximum squat test, jump squat te...
Compression Garments: Influence on Muscle Fatigue 1998 2924 This study assessed whether opposing compression forces produced by commercially available "compression shorts" affect the repetitive force production capabilities of the thigh muscles during repetitive open- and closed-kinetic-chain exercise test...
Detraining Produces Minimal Changes in Physical Performance and Hormonal Variables in Recreationally Strength-Trained Men 2002 204 The object of this study was to examine changes in muscular strength, power, and resting hormonal concentrations during 6 weeks of detraining (DTR) in recreationally strengthtrained men. Each subject was randomly assigned to either a DTR (n 5 9) ...
Does Short-Term Near-Maximal Intensity Machine Resistance Training Induce Overtraining? 1994 747 To examine the efficacy of a 3-week, high-intensity, resistance exercise protocol for inducing overtraining, 9 subjects trained their lower body on a squat-simulating resistance exercise machine. Five subjects performed a training (Trn) protocol ...
Effect of an Acute Bout of Whole Body Vibration Exercise on Muscle Force Output and Motor Neuron Excitability 2010 1271 The purpose of the current investigation was to assess the effect of an acute bout of whole body vibration (WBV) exercise on muscle force output and motor neuron excitability. Nineteen recreationally trained college-aged males were randomly assig...
The Effect of Heavy- vs. Light-Load Jump Squats on the Development of Strength, Power, and Speed 2002 585 The purpose of this investigation was to examine the effect of an 8-week training program with heavy- vs. light-load jump squats on various physical performance measures and electromyography (EMG). Twenty-six athletic men with varying levels of r...
Effect of Pilates and Taiji Quan Training on Self-Efficacy, Sleep Quality, Mood, and Physical Performance of College Students 2009 1148 Methods of exercise such as Pilates and taiji quan, which have been shown to have beneficial effects on physical and mental characteristics, have been studied more often in samples of older participants. The purpose of this investigation was to exam...
Effects of Increased Eccentric Loading on Bench Press 1 RM 2002 2778 The purpose of this study was to measure the effects of additional eccentric loading on subsequent concentric strength. Eight subjects with some experience in weight training volunteered to perform maximal attempts in the barbell bench press usin...
Effects of a Short-Term Aquatic Resistance Program on Strength and Body Composition in Fit Young Men 2009 652 This study was designed to analyze the effects of a short-term periodized aquatic resistance program (PARP) on upper-limb maximum strength, leg muscular power, and body composition (BC) in fit young men. Twenty subjects (21.2 +- 1.17 years) were ...
Effects of a Short-Term Resistance Program Using Elastic Bands vs. Weight Machines for Sedentary Middle-Aged Women 2008 482 This study was designed to determine whether different effects on functional capacity and body composition were produced by using different devices (elastic bands (EBs) versus weight machines (WMs)) with the same resistance training program. Fort...
Exercise and Recovery Responses of Lymphokines to Heavy Resistance Exercise 2000 233 To examine the effect of dynamic resistance exercise on the response patterns of lymphokines, 10 strength-trained men (21.7 +- 0.6 y) performed 2 resistance exercise protocols, high force (HF) and high power (HP), of equal total work (HF 5 33.0 +...
Impact of Training Patterns on Incidence of Illness and Injury During a Women's Collegiate Basketball Season 2003 237 This study was conducted to monitor the training patterns throughout a basketball season in order to determine if a relationship exists between the physical stress of practice and the occurrence of injuries and illnesses in NCAA Division III athl...
Influence of Compression Garments on Vertical Jump Performance in NCAA Division I Volleyball Players 1996 3750 The purpose of this study was to determine whether compression shorts affected vertical jump performance. Subjects, 18 men and 18 women varsity volleyball players, were thoroughly familiarized with the jump tests and experimental techniques. Test...
Influence of Resistance Exercise Volume on Serum Growth Hormone and Cortisol Concentrations in Women 1996 712 Ten eumenorrheic women (age 24.1 ± 4.3) performed 2 randomly assigned heavy-resistance exercise protocols (HREP) on separate days during the early follicular phase of the menstrual cycle. Multiple-set (MS) HREP consisted of 3 sets of 10 RM of 8 r...
The Influence of Strength and Power on the 40s Muscle Endurance Test Performance 2009 711 The aim of this study was to determine the importance of muscular strength and power on a muscular endurance performance test. Fourteen firefighter recruits performed a progressive resistance test (PRT) followed by a specific maximum repetition t...
A Method for Monitoring Intensity During Aquatic Resistance Exercises 2008 543 The aims of this study were (i) to check whether monitoring of both the rhythm of execution and the perceived effort is a valid tool for reproducing the same intensity of effort in different sets of the same aquatic resistance exercise (ARE) and ...
