The maintenance of intensity in strength training requires regular re-assessment of the 1-RM
or RM to ensure that the intensity of training is maintained and progressed as the person gains strength.
To ensure that adequate weight was used for resistance training, participants were retested at every sixth session to determine a new estimated 1-RM
2001) Orientation and familiarization to 1-RM
strength testing in old and young women.
Furthermore, this difference was not consistent across force levels, as reflected by the fact that the intensity patterns for the t-vector were not the same from 10-100% 1-RM
Table 1 shows the bench press and leg press 1-RM
strength values for each subject during the Pre- and Post-training testing.
5 hours total week for 12 Started at 70% of 1-RM
(week weeks 1) for 3 times 8 reps and increased by 5% 1-RM
every week Stair climbing on 2-step stair (ht 21 cm) for 3 min (week 1) increased to 6 min (week 12) 2) Endurance Training: 1.
We chose the use of 55% of 1-RM
because it allows working for 30-second consecutively: circuit training, composed by stations lasting 30-second, is a widely used modality of resistance training among women.
2000) and the 1-RM
was defined as the maximum resistance that could be lifted once using the proper technique.
Using regression analysis, we determined what percentage of 1-RM
that the subjects would need to lift in order to elicit an equivalent level of EMG activity to the Shake Weight[R].
Subjects then performed 4 sets of no more than 10 repetitions at 80% 1-RM
of their respective exercise and were given 90 seconds of rest between sets.
2002) Validation of the NFL-225 test for predicting 1-RM
bench press performance in college football players.
For example, while leg stiffness was increased during a modified drop jump movement following back squats performed with a load of 93% 1-RM
compared to drop jumps performed after squats with 65% and 80% 1-RM
, all squat loads resulted in a reduction in flight time (from which jump height can be calculated) during the drop jumps (Comyns et al.
