To apply strength training using the recommended training parameters, physiotherapists must be able to evaluate 1-RM
and repetition maximum (RM) based exercise sets.
Medway, MA) was assessed using standardized 1-RM
testing procedures (Kraemer et al.
The results from the paired-samples t-tests indicated that the mean C_weights on the high frequency g_spectra were significantly greater during the concentric than the eccentric muscle actions at all %1-RM
except 10% 1-RM
= one-repetition maximum, AIS = American Spinal Injury Association Impairment Scale, CRT = circuit resistance training, SCI = spinal cord injury, T = thoracic, UL = upper limb, VO2 = oxygen consumption.
Participants performed the chest press at 50% of the estimated 1-RM
, and their blood pressure was taken immediately after each set of repetitions.
Participants performed 3 sets of 10 repetitions at 70-80% 1-RM
Determination of the 1-RM
was performed during the familiarization session, and involved requiring the subject to lift progressively heavier loads until he/she could not extend the leg in a controlled manner throughout the full 90[degrees] of the range of motion.
2005) Influence of familiarization process on muscular strength assessment in 1-RM
The intensity patterns for the t-vectors at 50%, 60%, 70%, and 80% 1-RM
are shown in Figure 3.
Quadriceps strength was clinically analyzed before and immediately after the training period using 1-RM
for leg press and knee extension.
Subjects then performed successive 1-RM
lifts on the leg press starting at about 70% of anticipated 1-RM
and increased by 10 - 25 lbs until reaching a 1-RM
In addition, the mean bench press and leg press 1-RM
strength values before (Pre) and after (Post) the 8-week resistance training program were compared using two separate pairedsamples t-tests.
