Response to Moderate and High Isoinertial Loading Paradigms
The purpose of this investigation is to examine the utility of two different isoinertial squat protocols (moderate vs high resistance) as a means of eliciting safe and predictable lower body muscle damage. To assess the reliability of functional and systemic outcomes following repeated bouts of moderate and high isoinertial resistance squat protocols.
- Healthy resistance trained males (18-40 years old)
- Have a smart phone or computer with internet access to use with an application the study will provide.
- Healthy, and ready for physical activity as determined by the PAR-Q+, and MHQ.
- Participants will be required to be recreationally active
- Active resistance training for a minimum of 6 months as defined by 3 resistance training sessions per week with at least one lower body session.
- Willing to follow specific dietary requirements.
- Consuming <300 mg·day−1 (Equivalent to 3 cups of coffee per day or 2 16oz cans of Redbull) and willing to keep their caffeine consumption consistent throughout the duration of the study.
- Informed of the study procedures and provided written informed consent to participate in the study.
- Free from previous or current lower body injuries that are viewed by the investigators to potentially limit ability of the participant to perform the assessments.
- Willing to abstain from lower body resistance training for the 14 days preceding ET1 and ET2
