Early-phase neuromuscular adaptations to high- and low-volume resistance training in untrained young and older women

It is demonstrated that additional neuromuscular adaptation during early-phase moderate-intensity resistance training in previously untrained young and older women may not be elicited through higher-volume training when training loads are matched provided that a minimal volume threshold is attained.

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.

Epidemiology and consequences of sarcopenia

A comprehensive review of the literature on the epidemiology of sarcopenia and its consequences to be presented on November 13th and 14th 2008, at the Carla Workshop.

Effects of three resistance training programs on muscular strength and absolute and relative endurance.

Abstract The effects of three resistance training programs on muscular strength and on absolute and relative muscular endurance were investigated. Forty-three male college students were randomly

Neuromuscular fatigue development during maximal concentric and isometric knee extensions.

Investigation of mechanisms of neuromuscular fatigue during maximal concentric and isometric leg extensions inducing similar torque decrements found that peripheral fatigue developed first, followed by central fatigue, whereas with ISO exercises the fatigue pattern was inverted.

A 2‐Year Follow‐Up of a Lifestyle Physical Activity Versus a Structured Exercise Intervention in Older Adults

To evaluate the long‐term effects of a lifestyle intervention and a structured exercise intervention on physical fitness and cardiovascular risk factors in older adults, a large number of adults in their 70s and 80s were surveyed.

Low-volume circuit versus high-volume periodized resistance training in women.

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.

Consumption of fat-free fluid milk after resistance exercise promotes greater lean mass accretion than does consumption of soy or carbohydrate in young, novice, male weightlifters.

It is concluded that chronic postexercise consumption of milk promotes greater hypertrophy during the early stages of resistance training in novice weightlifters when compared with isoenergetic soy or carbohydrate consumption.
