Article
High-intensity functional training (HIFT) integrates different modes of exercise into training sessions performed at a relatively high intensity. Although HIFT is becoming more popular in youth strength and conditioning programs, research comparing the effects of HIFT with traditional forms of training, such as strength training (ST) or endurance t...

International Journal of Exercise Science 15(6): 15-24, 2022. Most research concerning the effects of music on physical performance was conducted using endurance parameters. This study investigated the effects of relaxing (RLX) vs. self-selected stimulating music (SM) vs. no music (NM) on jump height (JH), jump power (PWR), and average rest period...

The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of an 8‑week powerlifting-type bench press (BP) resistance training (RT) program, either without (RAW) or with using a supportive elastic bench press device (EBD) on one-repetition maximum (1-RM), body weight (BW), mid-upper arm and chest circumference, as well as visual analogue pain scale (VAS)...
Article
The breakdown of skeletal muscles increases with age and is further accelerated in today’s society due to lower physical activity. The skeletal muscles are primarily responsible for the transmission of force and thus for our everyday movement. With the reduction of muscle mass, the execution of everyday movement is continuously hampered and the qua...

Zusammenfassung CrossFit® (CF) bedient sich ständig variierender funktioneller Bewegungen in sogenannten „Workouts of the Day“ (WOD), die oft unter Zeitdruck ausgeführt werden. CF wird daher oft kritisiert, da es möglicherweise ein hohes Verletzungsrisiko birgt. Es existieren Studien zu Verletzungshäufigkeiten beim CF aus den USA, den Niederlanden...
Thesis
Full-text available
Summary of the doctoral thesis Introduction: In many sports, strength is considered an important basis for performance. One factor affecting strength is muscle mass. Therefore, it may be necessary to increase muscle mass in athletes through resistance training. However, the most effective strategy to gain muscle mass has not yet been clearly identi...

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether a six-week, twice weekly resistance training (4 sets at 30% 1-RM until failure) with practical blood flow restriction (BFR) using 7cm wide cuffs with a twist lock placed below the patella is superior to training without BFR (NoBFR) concerning muscle mass and strength gains in calf muscles. A two-...

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of detraining following a block (BLOCK) or daily undulating periodized (DUP) resistance training (RT) on hypertrophy, strength, and athletic performance in adolescent athletes. Twenty-one males (age = 16 ± 0.7 years; range 15-18 years) were randomly assigned to one of two 12-week intervention gro...
Conference Paper
Introduction: Unilateral (UNI) as well as bilateral (BI) exercises are commonly used in strength programs for youth athletes. However, studies comparing the effects of UNI vs. BI in youths are lacking. Methods: Twenty-seven healthy male soccer players, aged between 14 and 16, were recruited for this study. A two-group (BI and UNI) randomized matc...

Consumption of pre-workout supplements (PWS) has increased substan- tially in recent years. However, dosages of ingredients vary between man- ufacturers. Therefore, the aim of this study was to analyze ingredients from various products and to survey past and present (4 weeks) consumption behavior. Analysis of ingredients was performed in 30 produ...

Consumption of pre-workout supplements (PWS) has increased substantially in recent years. However, dosages of ingredients vary between manufacturers. Therefore, the aim of this study was to analyze ingredients from various products and to survey past and present (4 weeks) consumption behavior. Analysis of ingredients was performed in 30 products ac...
Article
Purpose: Muscle mass, strength, and power are important factors for performance. To improve these characteristics, periodized resistance training is used. However, there is no consensus regarding the most effective periodization model. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to compare the effects of block (BLOCK) vs daily undulating periodization...
Conference Paper
Introduction: No previous study has investigated the effects of high [HI-RT]and low intensity resistance training [LI-RT] in identical twins. Therefore, the objective of this study was to compare the effects of HI-RT and LI-RT on measures of strength and hypertrophy. Methods: Two male identical twins (age=24; height: 183=cm; strength training expe...

INTRODUCTION: Periodization is the systematic structuring of training variables. It is well documented that periodized resistance training is effective for increasing muscle mass, strength and sports performance. Besides the traditional model there are two commonly used periodization models in strength training. The non-linear or undulating periodi...

Die Klärung der Mechanismen einer trainingsinduzierten Skelettmuskelhypertrophie gibt der Wissenschaft seit Jahren Rätsel auf. So weiß man mittlerweile, dass mindestens 45 verschiedene Gene und Hormone an dieser Trainingsadaptation direkt oder indirekt beteiligt sind. Immer wieder sorgen neu entdeckte Gene, wie zum Beispiel das Myostatin (McPherron...

Because studies of detraining in adolescent athletes are rare and often inconsistent, the aim of this study was to measure changes in body composition and performance in trained adolescent American football players following three weeks of detraining. Twelve adolescent male athletes (age: 17 ± 1 years, height: 186 ± 6 cm) participated in a twelve-w...

Background: The “stump straps bench press” (STBP) is a variation of the conventional bench press (CBP) where some or the total amount of weight is attached to a barbell with flexible straps, so the weight hangs freely in the air. This study investigated the influence of STBP on muscle activity of chosen upper body muscles. Objective: The aim of thi...
