German Volume Training

June 1, 2017

Article

A study that investigated the effect of modified German volume training on muscular hypertrophy and strength concluded that the modified German volume training program is no more effective than performing five sets per exercise for increasing muscle hypertrophy and strength. To maximize hypertrophic training effects, it is recommended that 4 – 6 sets per exercise be performed.

Sports Nutrition for the High School Athlete

June 27, 2015

Video

Even though most high school athletes feel as though their diet is sufficient in quality and caloric value, this session from the 2015 NSCA National Conference explains that high school athletes usually do not meet their caloric needs to support their training volume. Tavis Piattoly identifies the challenges high school athletes face regarding their nutrition and the strategies that can be used to correct these issues.

Classification and Determination Model of Resistance Training Status

Quiz CATD 0.2

An individual’s training status is a key factor used to determine the volume, the intensity, and the selection of exercises for resistance training prescription. Interestingly, there are no objective parameters to assess training status, so there is ambiguity in determining the appropriate volume and other resistance training variables in this regard. Thus, the objective of this study was to propose a strategy for classification and determination of resistance training status. The following five parameters were identified and used: (a) current uninterrupted training time, (b) time of detraining, (c) previous training experience, (d) exercise technique, and (e) strength level. Moreover, 4 classification levels are proposed: beginner, intermediate, advanced, and highly advanced, which are determined by the mean score of the parameters used. The proposed model represents an important advancement in training status classification and can be used as a valid tool for training prescription and for researchers to better characterize a sample and reproduce results under the same conditions in future studies.
