Hormonal Responses and Adaptations to Resistance Exercise and Training
It appears that this acute response to resistance exercise is more critical to tissue growth and remodelling than chronic changes in resting hormonal concentrations, as many studies have not shown a significant change during resistance training despite increases in muscle strength and hypertrophy. Expand
Compatibility of high-intensity strength and endurance training on hormonal and skeletal muscle adaptations.
It is indicated that the combination of strength and endurance training results in an attenuation of the performance improvements and physiological adaptations typical of single-mode training. Expand
Muscular adaptations in response to three different resistance-training regimens: specificity of repetition maximum training zones
Low and intermediate RM training appears to induce similar muscular adaptations, at least after short-term training in previously untrained subjects, and both physical performance and the associated physiological adaptations are linked to the intensity and number of repetitions performed, and thus lend support to the strength–endurance continuum.

Youth Resistance Training: Updated Position Statement Paper From the National Strength and Conditioning Association
The present report updates and clarify the 1996 recommendations on 4 major areas of importance and discusses the potential risks and concerns associated with youth resistance training, the types and amount of resistance training needed by healthy children and adolescents, and program design considerations for optimizing long-term training adaptations.

Fundamentals of resistance training: progression and exercise prescription.
A careful system of goal targeting, exercise testing, proper exercise technique, supervision, and optimal exercise prescription all contribute to the successful implementation of a resistance training program. Expand
Changes in agonist-antagonist EMG, muscle CSA, and force during strength training in middle-aged and older people.
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. Expand
Hormonal and growth factor responses to heavy resistance exercise protocols.
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). Expand
Neuromuscular adaptations during concurrent strength and endurance training versus strength training
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. Expand
