This study examined the acute effects of 4 different warm ups (no stretch [NS], static stretching [SS], dynamic stretching [DS] and sports specific movements [SSM]) has upon the performance of the concentric vertical jump (CJs) at 3 different starting knee angles (90°, 100°, 120°). Twenty-four trained males (age, 26 ±6.7years; height, 178.5 ±6.75cm...

Abstract Background Contemporary literature indicates that a higher body mass index (BMI) serves as a risk factor for metabolic disease and is also correlated with greater disease severity. Subsequently, it has been linked to increased COVID-19 severity. The purpose of the study was to investigate whether regular CrossFit™ participation was associa...

Macklin IT, Wyatt FB, Ramos M, Ralston G. A Meta-Analytic Review of Muscle Glycogen Replenishment. JEPonline 2019;22 (4):95-111. This study determined the mechanisms of muscle glycogen depletion and replenishment. A systematic literature review and meta-analysis research design was used. Inclusion and exclusion criteria consisted of the following:...

Background: Recommendations on resistance training (RT) set-volume protocols in preparation for spaceflight muscular strength conditioning remains equivocal. A meta-analysis was performed on the effects of single-set (S), or three-set (M3) RT on muscular strength per exercise for different body segments and joint types (multi-joint and single-joint...

Background: The current recommendations for resistance training (RT) frequency range from 2 to 5 days per week (days week- 1) depending on the subjects' training status. However, the relationship between RT frequency and muscular strength remains controversial with reported variances existing across different population groups. We conducted a meta...

Background Strength training set organisation and its relationship to the development of muscular strength have yet to be clearly defined. Current meta-analytical research suggests that different population groups have distinctive muscular adaptations, primarily due to the prescription of the strength training set dose. Objectives We conducted a me...

The purpose of this paper is to conduct a meta-analysis of the effects of a single set of resistance exercise compared to multiple sets of the same exercise on male strength. A secondary purpose is to establish if multi-joint exercises produce a different strength gain profile when compared to single joint exercises.
