Muscular Performance Before & After Resistance Training in Different Environments
This study entails five lab visits in which eight male and eight female subjects will complete a familiarization visit followed by experimental trials consisting of resistance exercise in hot (40° C; 40% relative humidity [RH]), temperate (21° C; 40% RH), and cold environments (10° C; 40% RH), and an additional self-paced trial in the heat (40° C; 40% RH). Before and after resistance exercise, measures of muscular performance (jump height, lower extremity movement behavior, and how fast you can lift an array of weights) will be evaluated.
The specific aims of the proposed study are:To determine the effects of whole-body high volume-load resistance training in environmental extremes on muscular performance (concentric F-V curve characteristics, barbell velocity, and the RSI).To determine if self-determined rest intervals mitigate the effects of whole-body high volume-load resistance training in environmental extr

Males and females aged 18-29 years who resistance train 3-4x per week for the past 2 or more years
