In untrained adults, multiple trials of maximal strength testing are necessary to obtain reliable measures. Training status may positively influence test-retest reliability and increase testing efficiency. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of training status on differences between trials of 1 repetition maximum (1RM) measurement in women. Before (untrained women [UTW]) and after (trained women [TRW]) an 8-week resistance training program, 10 women (45.6 ± 1.4 years; body mass… CONTINUE READING
