Changes in agonist-antagonist EMG, muscle CSA, and force during strength training in middle-aged and older people.
TLDR
Great training-induced gains in maximal and explosive strength in both middle-aged and elderly subjects were accompanied by large increases in the voluntary activation of the agonists, with significant reductions in the antagonist coactivation in the elderly subjects.
Differences in physical fitness and throwing velocity among elite and amateur male handball players.
TLDR
The present results suggest that more muscular and powerful players are at an advantage in handball, and could partly explain the differences observed between groups in absolute maximal strength and muscle power.
Neuromuscular adaptations during concurrent strength and endurance training versus strength training
TLDR
The present results suggest that even the low-frequency concurrent strength and endurance training leads to interference in explosive strength development mediated in part by the limitations of rapid voluntary neural activation of the trained muscles.
Differential effects of strength training leading to failure versus not to failure on hormonal responses, strength, and muscle power gains.
TLDR
This investigation demonstrated a potential beneficial stimulus of NRF for improving strength and power, especially during the subsequent peaking training period, whereas performing sets to failure resulted in greater gains in local muscular endurance.
Twice-weekly progressive resistance training decreases abdominal fat and improves insulin sensitivity in older men with type 2 diabetes.
TLDR
Two sessions per week of PRT, without a concomitant weight loss diet, significantly improves insulin sensitivity and fasting glycemia and decreases abdominal fat in older men with type 2 diabetes.
Resistance Training for Older Adults: Position Statement From the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
TLDR
Evidence is provided to support recommendations for successful resistance training in older adults related to 4 parts: program design variables, physiological adaptations, functional benefits, and considerations for frailty, sarcopenia, and other chronic conditions.
Differences in physical fitness and throwing velocity among elite and amateur female handball players.
TLDR
The association between 1RM (BP) and throwing velocity suggests that throwing velocity values in female handball players depend more on maximal strength than on the capacity to move low loads at high velocities, during elbow extension actions.
Determining Variables of Plyometric Training for Improving Vertical Jump Height Performance: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
The responses identified in this analysis are essential and should be considered by strength and conditioning professionals with regard to the most appropriate dose-response trends for optimizing plyometric-induced gains.
Effects of an entire season on physical fitness changes in elite male handball players.
TLDR
The handball season resulted in significant increases in maximal and specific strength of the upper-extremity but not in the lower-extREMity actions, and correlations observed suggest that training time at low intensity should be given less attention, whereas the training stimuli for high-intensity endurance running and leg strength trainingShould be given more careful attention in the full training season program.
Maximal and explosive force production capacity and balance performance in men of different ages
TLDR
The present results would suggest that the capacity for explosive force production declines drastically with increasing age, even more than maximal muscle strength, which may lead to impaired balance with a decrease in event detection and speed of postural adjustments.
