We carried out a prospective case study in a high-level amateur natural male bodybuilder throughout preparation for 4 competitions and during the ensuing post-contest recovery period. Laboratory testing was conducted monthly over a 1-year period, which included the following assessments: B-mode ultrasound evaluation of muscle thickness (MT), multi-...

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of training muscle groups 1 day per week using a split-body routine versus 3 days per week using a total-body routine on muscular adaptations in well-trained men. Subjects were 20 male volunteers (height = 1.76 ± 0.05 m; body mass = 78.0 ± 10.7 kg; age = 23.5 ± 2.9 years) recruited from a uni...

The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of low- versus high-load resistance training (RT) on muscular adaptations in well-trained subjects. Eighteen young men experienced in RT were matched according to baseline strength, and then randomly assigned to 1 of 2 experimental groups: a low-load RT routine (LL) where 25-35 repetitions were pe...
Article
The purpose of this study was to examine that the effects of a six week of two different stretching exercises together with plyometric training on hamstring flexibility (HF), vertical jump performance (VJ) and electromyographic (EMG) activities of vastus lateralis (VL) and vastus medialis (VM) muscles. Twenty-seven track and field athletes voluntee...

Obesity, a disorder of body composition, is defined by a relative or absolute excess of body fat. In general adult population, obesity has been associated with a diverse array of adverse health outcomes, including major causes of death such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, as well as functional impairment from problems such as osteoarth...

Background: Obesity is spreading all around the world rapidly, especially in developed and developing countries, due to physical inactivity related to technological developments and increase in the consumption on energy rich food. Discovery of the new stimulants that affect various parts of the hypothalamus and produced from some peripheral tissues...

It has been hypothesized that performing aerobic exercise after an overnight fast accelerates the loss of body fat. The purpose of this study was to investigate changes in fat mass and fat-free mass following four weeks of volume-equated fasted versus fed aerobic exercise in young women adhering to a hypocaloric diet. Twenty healthy young female vo...

The purpose of the study was to compare core muscle activation of the tradition prone plank with a modified version performed with a long-lever and posterior-tilt using surface electromyography. To further determine if a specific component of this modified plank was more effective than the other in enhancing muscle activity, the plank with a long l...

Purpose It has been hypothesized that lifting light loads to muscular failure will activate the full spectrum of MUs and thus bring about muscular adaptations similar to high-load training. The purpose of this study was to investigate EMG activity during low- versus high-load training during performance of a multi-joint exercise by well-trained su...

It is believed that regional activation within a muscle may lead to greater site-specific muscular adaptations in the activated portion of the muscle. Because the hamstrings are a biarticular muscle, it can be theorized that single-joint exercises where movement originates at the hip versus the knee will result in differential activation of the mus...

Regimented resistance training has been shown to promote marked increases in skeletal muscle mass. Although muscle hypertrophy can be attained through a wide range of resistance training programs, the principle of specificity, which states that adaptations are specific to the nature of the applied stimulus, dictates that some programs will promote...

Over the past decade, our knowledge of how homeostatic systems regulate food intake and body weight has increased with the discovery of circulating peptides such as leptin, acyl ghrelin, des-acyl ghrelin and obestatin. These hormones regulate the appetite and food intake by sending signals to the brain regarding the body's nutritional status. The p...

TARGETED HIP EXTENSION EXERCISES ARE OFTEN PERFORMED TO DEVELOP STRENGTH, POWER, AND ENDURANCE IN THE HIP EXTENSORS. ALTHOUGH THESE EXERCISES CAN POSSESS SIMILAR MOVEMENT PATTERNS, BIOMECHANICALLY THE INSTANTANEOUS TORQUE AT DIFFERENT RANGES OF HIP EXTENSION VARIES DEPENDING ON BODY POSITION RELATIVE TO SPACE. FOR THESE REASONS, IT IS PROPOSED THAT...

The reverse fly machine is a popular exercise for strengthening the horizontal shoulder abductors including the posterior deltoid. . There seems to be little consensus as to which hand position most effectively targets the posterior deltoid despite this option on most machines. This study investigated the impact of varying one's hand position, and...

THE PUSH-UP IS WIDELY USED BY FITNESS PROFESSIONALS TO DEVELOP UPPER-BODY STRENGTH, POWER, AND LOCAL MUSCULAR ENDURANCE. ALTHOUGH THE LOAD DURING A PUSH-UP IS LIMITED BY AN INDIVIDUAL'S BODYWEIGHT AND ANTHROPOMETRY, MANY BIOMECHANICAL VARIATIONS OF THE EXERCISE CAN BE PERFORMED. THESE VARIATIONS MAY INVOLVE ALTERING HAND AND FOOT POSITIONS, WHICH I...
