To examine the hypothesis that increases in fiber cross-sectional area mediated by high-resistance training (HRT) would result in a decrease in fiber capillarization and oxidative potential, regardless of fiber type, we studied six untrained males (maximum oxygen consumption, 45.6 +/- 2.3 ml. kg-1. min-1; mean +/- SE) participating in a 12-wk program(More)
This paper describes the multi-method evaluation of an interprofessional training ward placement for medical, nursing, occupational therapy and physiotherapy students. Unique in the UK, and an extension of pioneering work in Sweden (Wahlström et al. 1997, Wahlstroöm & Sandén 1998), this interprofessional clinical placement allowed senior pre-qualifying(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare two contrasting training models, namely high-resistance training and prolonged submaximal training on the expression of Na+-K+ ATPase and changes in the potential of pathways involved in energy production in human vastus lateralis. The high-resistance training group (VO2peak = 45.3 +/- 1.9 mL kg(-1) min(-1), mean +/-(More)
To investigate the hypothesis that changes in muscle submaximal exercise metabolism would occur as a result of fiber hypertrophy, induced by high-resistance training (HRT), active but untrained males (age 20 +/- 0.7 yr; mean +/- SE) performed lower-limb weight training 3 days/wk for 12 wk using three sets of 6-8 repetitions maximal (RM)/day. Muscle(More)
Muscle biopsies were performed on the vastus lateralis muscle prior to and during a high-resistance training (HRT) programme in order to examine the effects of hypertrophy on sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ ATPase activity at rest and during exercise. In six male untrained volunteers (peak aerobic power, Vo2 peak = 3.39 +/- 0.13 L min-1, mean +/- SE), the(More)
