Whinton, AK, Donahoe, K, Gao, R, Thompson, KMA, Aubry, R, Saunders, TJ, Johnston, A, Chilibeck, PD, and Burr, JF. Repeated application of a novel creatine cream improves muscular peak and average power in male subjects. J Strength Cond Res 34(9): 2482-2491, 2020-Using a multicenter, randomized controlled trial, (N = 123, age 23 ± 4 years) we sought...

Sport-specific differences in the left ventricle (LV) of land-based athletes have been observed; however, comparisons to water-based athletes are sparse. The purpose of this study was to examine differences in LV structure and function in elite swimmers and runners. Sixteen elite swimmers [23 (2) years, 81% male, 69% white] and 16 age, sex, and rac...

Following a bout of high-intensity resistance exercise, a transient increase in arterial stiffness, as measured through central pulse wave velocity has been shown to occur. Preliminary creatine supplementation research has demonstrated the potential for creatine to alter select measures of arterial stiffness. This study examines whether creatine su...

This study sought to assess the reliability and comparability of two custom-built isokinetic dynamometers (Model A and Model B) with the gold-standard (Humac Norm). The two custom-built dynamometers consisted of commercially available leg extension machines attached to a robotically controlled resistance device (1080 Quantum), able to measure power...
Data
SSPS study outcome measures. Raw data of peak power, mean power and muscle fatigue outputs for both models (A and B) of the Quantum and Humac Norm. (SAV)

Resisted sprint training (RST) is commonly used for performance enhancement in athletics and team sports to develop acceleration ability. Evidence suggests that RST may be effective as a short-term intervention to improve successive sprints. While these improvements have been measured in team sport athletes, limited research has considered the acut...

Ischemic pre-conditioning (IPC) was initially developed to protect the myocardium from ischemia through altered cardiocyte metabolism. Due to the observed effects on metabolism and oxygen kinetics, IPC gained interest as a potential ergogenic aid in sport. Limited research evaluating the effects of IPC on maximal short-duration activities has been...
