PURPOSE This study examined cycling economy before and after 8 wk of maximal leg-strength training. METHODS Seven previously untrained males (25 +/- 2 yr) performed leg-strength training 3 d.wk(-1) for 8 wk using four sets of five repetitions at 85% of one repetition maximum (1RM). Body mass, lean-leg muscle mass (LLM), percentage of body fat, and leg(More)
Reliability of maximal-paddling performance in surfboard riders (surfers) was determined. Peak power output was measured in 11 male surfers (age 17 +/- 1 years, body mass 61.1 +/- 9.2 kg, stature 1.71 +/- 0.08 m) during six 10-s maximal-intensity paddling tests on a swim-bench ergometer (laboratory tests) over 2 days (Days 1 and 2). In addition, peak speed(More)
