The process of warming up prepares athletes for subsequent stress and increases their level of performance. Functional exercises are often included in warm-up programs for power sports, although a positive effect of functional exercises has not been confirmed. The aim of this study was to measure a possible effect of functional exercises on sprint(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the effects of single-set and multiple-set strength training in women. Twenty-seven women (aged 20-40 years) with basic experience in strength training were randomly allocated to either a single-set group (n = 9), a 3-set group (n = 9), or a nontraining control group (n = 9). Both training groups underwent a whole-body(More)
To examine the effects of strength training with superimposed vibrations ten subjects trained over a period of six weeks (three sessions per week) one leg with back squats and superimposed vibrations and the other leg with traditional squats. In each training session participants performed 4 sets with 8-12 repetitions. Before and after the training period(More)
