Thirty-five healthy men were matched and randomly assigned to one of four training groups that performed high-intensity strength and endurance training (C; n = 9), upper body only high-intensity strength and endurance training (UC; n = 9), high-intensity endurance training (E; n = 8), or high-intensity strength training (ST; n = 9). The C and ST groups significantly increased one-repetition maximum strength for all exercises (P < 0.05). Only the C, UC, and E groups demonstrated significant…

Effect of concurrent strength and endurance training on skeletal muscle properties and hormone concentrations in humans
Findings would support the contention that combined strength and endurance training can suppress some of the adaptations to strength training and augment some aspects of capillarization in skeletal muscle.
Hormonal adaptation determines the increase in muscle mass and strength during low-intensity strength training without relaxation
The suggestion that the secretion of metabolic hormones is triggered by a metabolic, rather than mechanical, stimulus from working muscles seems plausible.
Physiological Adaptation in Women Concurrently Training for Strength and Endurance
The purpose of this study was to compare the physiological responses of 19 active women to 11 weeks of concurrent strength and endurance training or strength training only. Six young women were
Endurance and strength training effects on physiological and muscular parameters during prolonged cycling.
Neuromuscular and cardiovascular adaptations during concurrent strength and endurance training in untrained men.
The results suggest that the present moderate volume 21-week concurrent SE training in previously untrained men optimizes the magnitude of muscle hypertrophy, maximal strength and endurance development, but interferes explosive strength development, compared with strength or endurance training alone.
Neuromuscular adaptations to concurrent strength and endurance training.
Findings indicate 3-d x wk(-1) concurrent performance of both strength and endurance training does not impair adaptations in strength, muscle hypertrophy, and neural activation induced by strength training alone.
Early Phase Changes by Concurrent Endurance and Strength Training
It is concluded that concurrent endurance and strength training is more effective in terms of improving athletic perfor-mance than are endurance andstrength training apart.
Concurrent Strength and Endurance Training: The Influence of Dependent Variable Selection
It is suggested that statistical power and dependent variable selection are significant issues in enhancing the insights into concurrent training and may be necessary to assess a range of performance parameters to monitor the relative effectiveness of a particular concurrent training regimen.
High volume of endurance training impairs adaptations to 12 weeks of strength training in well-trained endurance athletes
This is the first controlled study to demonstrate that the strength training response on muscle hypertrophy, 1RM strength, squat jump performance, and peak RFD is attenuated in well-trained endurance athletes during a period of concurrent endurance training.
Effects of high‐intensity interval cycling performed after resistance training on muscle strength and hypertrophy
It is suggested that high‐intensity interval cycling performed after heavy‐resistance exercise may not inhibit resistance exercise‐induced muscle strength/hypertrophy after 2 months of training, while it prompts aerobic capacity and muscle capillarization.


Physiological adaptations to concurrent endurance training and low velocity resistance training.
Knee extension peak torque and total work as well as cross-sectional area of quadriceps femoris were significantly increased after 6 and 9 weeks of training in both groups and no significant differences in strength gains were observed.
Consequences of combining strength and endurance training regimens.
It is concluded that simultaneous training may inhibit the normal adaptation to either training program when performed alone, and the extent of the interference probably depends on the nature and intensity of the individual training program.
Incompatibility of endurance- and strength-training modes of exercise.
Twenty-two male and female subjects trained for 7 wk for endurance (group E), for strength (group IS), or for both strength and endurance (group C) to evaluate the effect of concurrent performance of
Effects of simultaneous training for strength and endurance on upper and lower body strength and running performance.
It is concluded that gains in strength were somewhat compromised by the simultaneous run training, and that improvements in strength and run performance were independent of LR and HR training intensity.
Skeletal muscle adaptations during early phase of heavy-resistance training in men and women.
The data suggest that skeletal muscle adaptations that may contribute to strength gains of the lower extremity are similar for men and women during the early phase of resistance training and, with the exception of changes in the fast fiber type composition, that they occur gradually.
A Review: The Effects of Combined Strength and Endurance Training on Strength Development
Concurrent strength and endurance training reportedly compromises strength gains and the ability to produce explosive movements. Possible reasons for compromises in strength-power adaptations with
Interaction between concurrent strength and endurance training.
Concurrent S and E training did not interfere with S or E development in comparison to S or N training alone and addition generally did not occur.
The Interference Effects of Training for Strength and Endurance Simultaneously
This study compared the effects of three preseason training programs on endurance, strength, power, and speed. Subjects were divided into four groups: the endurance (E) group completed a running
Comparison of two regimens of concurrent strength and endurance training.
It is concluded that same day (vs different day) concurrent strength and endurance training may impede strength development without impeding hypertrophy and same day training may enhance increases in CS activity but not VO2max or weight lifting endurance.
Successive time courses of strength development and steroid hormone responses to heavy-resistance training.
The strength time course results are not inconsistent with current thought on factors contributing to strength accumulation and the absence of a specific serum androgenic response with strength development may be related to the fact that the constant exercise stimulus is not conducive to establishing clear-cut hormone-strength relationships.
