SUMMARY In order to stimulate further adaptation toward specific training goals, progressive resistance training (RT) protocols are necessary. The optimal characteristics of strength-specific programs include the use of concentric (CON), eccentric (ECC), and isometric muscle actions and the performance of bilateral and unilateral single- and multip...

... The combination of an inactive and ageing population is already having serious implications on an individual's health, social and mental wellbeing, disability-free lifespan, and quality of life, as well as placing enormous global burden on entire health care systems, pension systems, economic development, and the environment (4). 2 Muscular strength has been shown to be inversely correlated with multiple ageassociated disabilities, diseases, and even all-cause mortality (5)(6)(7)(8)(9). The most efficient and effective way to build muscular strength is through progressive resistance training (10,11). ...
... Resistance training (RT) is the principal modality to increase strength and hypertrophy for improving athletic performance and clinical health [1]. Traditionally, RT has been prescribed based on a pre-determined percentage of one-repetition maximum (1RM), which has been referred to in the scientific literature as standardized percentage-based training (PBT) [2]. ...
... Among resistance training (RT) variables, exercise choice is one of the most important factors to develop muscle mass, strength, or muscular endurance (15). The exercise choice is based on movement specificity and it takes into account factors like the number of joints, range of motion, prime movers, level of balance, type of routine, frequency, periodization phase, etc (10). ...
