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.
