A first-degree velocity-load curve (6, 7) and a combination of second-degree force-velocity and load-velocity curves (8) have been used for predicting the one-repetition maximum
Reliability of the one-repetition maximum
test based on muscle group and gender.
strength was assessed for the barbell bench press and bent-over row using a standard protocol (Kraemer et al.
3 kg, and one-repetition maximum
lower- and upper-body strength by 4.
Thigh muscle volume, handgrip strength, one-repetition maximum
upper and lower body strength, and average isokinetic muscle power were evaluated at the beginning of the study, at three months (with the exception of thigh muscle volume), and at the end of the treatment period.
Leg extension and bench press one-repetition maximum
(1-RM) strength for each subject before (Pre) and after (Post) the training program.
Strength was assessed via 3 one-repetition maximum
tests: leg press, leg curl, and leg extension.
This program resulted in significant increases in lower and upper body strength, as measured by a one-repetition maximum
(1RM--the maximum weight that can be lifted one time) test, and muscular endurance, as measured by a treadmill test.
Participants started out lifting 50% of their one-repetition maximum
One favors one-repetition maximum
efforts, the other discourages them.
Lower-body work capacity and one-repetition maximum
squat prediction in college football players.
One way to do this is to calculate a relative load percentage of the one-repetition maximum
(1RM), or maximal strength (Fry, 2004).
