Abstract : Changes in hormonal concentrations after different heavy-resistance exercise protocols in women. Nine eumenorrheic women (age 24.11 + or - 4.28 yr) performed each of six randomly assigned heavy-resistance protocols (HREPs) on separate days during the early follicular phase of the menstrual cycle. The HREPs consisted of two series (series 1 (S) and series 2 (hypertrophy, H) of three protocols, each using identically ordered exercises controlled for load (5 VS. 10 (RM)), rest period length (1 vs. 3 min), and total work (J) within each three-protocol series.
