Designing Resistance Training Programs
Part I Foundations of resistance training: basic principles of resistance training and exercise prescription types of strength training neuromuscular physiology and adaptations to resistance training
Hormonal and growth factor responses to heavy resistance exercise protocols.
TLDR
The data indicate that the release patterns observed are complex functions of the type of HREPs utilized and the physiological mechanisms involved with determining peripheral circulatory concentrations (e.g., clearance rates, transport, receptor binding).
American College of Sports Medicine position stand. Progression models in resistance training for healthy adults.
TLDR
In order to stimulate further adaptation toward a specific training goal(s), progression in the type of resistance training protocol used is necessary and emphasis should be placed on multiple-joint exercises, especially those involving the total body.
Effects of heavy-resistance training on hormonal response patterns in younger vs. older men.
TLDR
The data indicate that older men do respond with an enhanced hormonal profile in the early phase of a resistance training program, but the response is different from that of younger men.
Low-volume circuit versus high-volume periodized resistance training in women.
TLDR
Significant improvements in muscular performance may be attained with either a low-volume single-set program or a high-volume, periodized multiple- set program during the first 12 wk of training in untrained women.
CHANGES IN EXERCISE PERFORMANCE AND HORMONAL CONCENTRATIONS OVER A BIG TEN SOCCER SEASON IN STARTERS AND NONSTARTERS
TLDR
Data indicate that players entering the season with low circulating concentrations of T and elevated levels of C can experience reductions in performance during a season, with performance decrements exacerbated in starters over nonstarters.
Endogenous anabolic hormonal and growth factor responses to heavy resistance exercise in males and females.
TLDR
Growth hormone increases in both males and females following the P-2 HREP were significantly greater at all time points than corresponding P-1 values; Females exhibited significantly higher pre-exercise hGH levels compared to males.
Periodized Strength Training: A Critical Review
Variation or periodization of training is an important concept in designing weight-training programs. To date, the majority of studies examining periodization of weight training have used a
Muscle fiber hypertrophy, hyperplasia, and capillary density in college men after resistance training.
TLDR
Resistance training resulted in hypertrophy of the total muscle CSA and fiber areas with no change in estimated fiber number, whereas capillary changes were proportional to muscle fiber growth.
Changes in hormonal concentrations after different heavy-resistance exercise protocols in women.
TLDR
Hormonal and metabolic blood variables measured in the early follicular phase of the menstrual cycle varied in response to different HREPs, indicating that the more glycolytic HREps may stimulate greater GH and cortisol increases.
