Bench press and back squat 1-RM assessments were performed on the same day separated by 15 min of rest.
No estudo de Dunnick e colaboradores (2015) a amostra foi de 20 homens saudaveis, treinados (um ano de experiencia com treinamento resistido), com idade media de 24,1 [+ or -] 2,05 anos, altura 177,5 [+ or -] 5,76 cm e massa corporal de 88,7 [+ or -] 13,72 kg, sem lesoes na parte superior do corpo, todos capazes de realizar 1-RM (repeticao maxima) no exercicio de supino reto com barra livre.
Based on findings of Baker and Newton (2007), who stated that maintaining power output of >90% maximum power output was possible for 2-3 repetitions with 45-60% 1-RM (full squat) and 5-6 repetitions with 35% 1-RM, it was important to determine how many repetitions would be possible with the chosen loads in the present study.
The initial exercise intensity started with 60% of 1-RM and progressed with 1-2% of the 1-RM every four weeks to 65% of 1-RM for the last four weeks of the program.
To apply strength training using the recommended training parameters, physiotherapists must be able to evaluate 1-RM and repetition maximum (RM) based exercise sets.
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.
Abbreviations: 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.
The 1-RM test is a method widely used for the determination of the intensity of strength training.
OBJETIVO: determinar en futbolistas si el entrenamiento de fuerza en un porcentaje alto (85%) de una repeticion maxima (1-RM), buscando el aumento en la fuerza maxima (FM), es mas eficaz para mejorar la potencia muscular inmediata que un entrenamiento similar pero al 75% de 1-RM.
The Department of Kinesiology at McMaster University in Ontario found that subjects (age 65 to 81) who trained over a two-year period for twice a week for an hour, performing two to three sets of both upper and lower body exercises at up to 80% of the heaviest weight they could lift once (1-RM) were still able to lift up to 24% above their baseline 1-RM after three years of detraining.
One group was required to train with sets of 8 reps at 40-50% of 1-RM (light) as fast as possible, while another group performed sets of 1-3 reps at 80% of 1-RM (heavy).
Briefly, the 1-RM method is the maximal weight an individual can lift at one time with acceptable form.
