An 8-wk progressive resistance training program for the lower extremity was performed twice a week to investigate the time course for skeletal muscle adaptations in men and women. Maximal dynamic strength was tested biweekly. Muscle biopsies were extracted at the beginning and every 2 wk of the study from resistance-trained and from nontrained (control)(More)
Six women who had participated in a previous 20-wk strength training study for the lower limb detrained for 30-32 wk and subsequently retrained for 6 wk. Seven untrained women also participated in the 6-wk "retraining" phase. In addition, four women from each group volunteered to continue training an additional 7 wk. The initial 20-wk training program(More)
Twenty-four women completed a 20-week heavy-resistance weight training program for the lower extremity. Workouts were twice a week and consisted of warm-up exercises followed by three sets each of full squats, vertical leg presses, leg extensions, and leg curls. All exercises were performed to failure using 6–8 RM (repetition maximum). Weight training(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of three different run training programs on plasma responses of beta-endorphin (beta-EP), adrenocorticotropin (ACTH), and cortisol to maximal treadmill exercise. Subjects were randomly assigned to one of three training groups: sprint intervals (SI) (N = 8), endurance (E) (N = 10), or combination (C) (N =(More)
Ten male subjects underwent exercise testing in three modes, arms (A), legs (L), and arms + legs (A + L), after ingesting 0.3 g X kg-1 body weight of either NaHCO3 to induce alkalosis or CaCO3 as a placebo (i.e., six exercise trials). Ratings of perceived exertion (RPE: Borg, 15-pt scale) for the arms (RPE-A), legs (RPE-L), chest (REP-C), and overall body(More)
The effect of induced erythrocythemia on hypoxia tolerance during physical exercise was determined for five male mountain climbers. Treadmill testing was performed under four conditions: 1) prereinfusion, normoxia (Pre-N); 2) prereinfusion, hypoxia (Pre-H); 3) postreinfusion, normoxia (Post-N); and 4) postreinfusion, hypoxia (Post-H). An altitude of 3,566.2(More)
The significance of the absolute elevations of serum creatine kinase (CK) levels after intense exercise and injuries was studied by measuring CK activities from seven healthy active males during a 2-week period, with a muscle biopsy taken between the first and second week. Most of the subjects (three lifters and two runners) carried on their normal exercise(More)
