Ten healthy, female, volunteer athletes attended two treadmill familiarization sessions and were then randomly assigned to either a placebo or pseudoephedrine group under double blind conditions. Each subject was given a graded exercise test (Bruce Protocol), then crossed over and re-tested after one week. All measurements (i.e., heart rate [HR],(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to examine blood pressure responses during recovery from resistance exercise and cycling. Seven normotensive volunteers (5 males, 2 females) were studied. Resistance exercise consisted of three sets of five exercises (arm curl, hamstring curl, squat, 'lat pull' and bench press) on four occasions: (1) twice using 40%(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the concurrent validity of a new bench press power (BPP) test using the medicine ball put (MBP) as the criterion measure. Forty-three college-age students (19 males and 24 females) participated in the study. Participants performed 1 repetition at maximum speed using 61.4 kg (males) and 25 kg (females), at a grip(More)
Despite the ubiquitous use of the flexed arm hang (FAH) as a field test of muscular fitness, evidence for the construct validity of it is lacking. The strongest validity coefficients (r) to date are 0.71 and 0.72 found by correlating modified versions of the FAH (i.e., 90 and 180° of elbow extension, respectively) with relative dynamic strength (i.e., 1(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the validity and reliability of a new stair sprinting power (SSP) test and, in addition, develop norms for college-age students. Two hundred twenty-seven college-age volunteers participated in the study (ages: males, [Latin capital letter X with macron above] = 21.6 +/- 2.264 years; females, [Latin capital letter X(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between total estimated work, bar load and total oxygen consumption (TVO2) during the deadlift exercise. Forty-two observations of TVO2 during a wide range of deadlifting bouts were made on a heterogeneous sample of 10 males and 14 females. TVO2 was measured by standard open-circuit spirometry. An R(More)
The flexed-arm hang (FAH) has been used to assess arm and shoulder girdle strength for 35 years despite little evidence to support its use. The purpose of this study was to determine what muscular fitness component, if any, was related to the FAH. The traditional overgrip chin-above-bar test and 5 different variations were compared with absolute strength (1(More)
