long-distance runners is improved with an increase in CSA of psoas major by using not only the combination training intervention but also a control group without the resistance training intervention. Moreover, we should determine that the mechanism of why the increase in CSA of psoas major resulted in

The purpose of the study was to determine whether resistance training (RT) or a combination of resistance and aerobic training (CT) resulted in the most improvement in measures of functional ability in functionally limited elders. Elderly adults who exhibited some limits in functional ability were randomly assigned to either a CT, RT, or control (C) group. Both RT and CT exercised three times per week for 16 weeks. At Weeks 0 and 17, participants completed six measures of strength and six functional tests. A 3 (group) × 3 (time) ANOVA with repeated measures on the time factor was used to analyze the results. CT and RT scored significantly better than C at Week 17 for biceps curl, elbow extension, chair stand, and time up the stairs. These findings demonstrate that RT and CT are both effective at increasing measures of strength and functional ability in elderly adults who begin exercise with functional limitations.

To determine whether proprioception or muscular strength is the dominant factor in balance and joint stability and define what type of ankle rehabilitation is most effective for these purposes.
The University of North Carolina Sports Medicine Research Laboratory.
Thirty-two healthy volunteers free of head injury, dominant leg injury, and vestibular deficits.
Subjects were divided into control, strength-training, proprioceptive-training, and strength-proprioception combination training groups. Balance was assessed before and after 6-week training programs.
Static, semidynamic, and dynamic balance were assessed.
Subjects showed no improvement for static balance but improved significantly for semidynamic (P = .038) and dynamic (P = .002) balance. No significant differences were observed between groups.
Enhancement of proprioception and muscular strength are equally effective in promoting joint stability and balance maintenance. In addition, no 1 type of training program is superior to another for these purposes.

performance enhancement is typically seen to occur at 5 to 15 minutes post conditioning stimulus via processes related to Ca 2+ sensitivity (increases in muscle temperature and muscle water content) and muscle activation. 6 Conversely, contrast training has been defined as a combination training method that

integration of these two aspects should be more of a point of focus moving forward. In particular, incorporating mental skills into combination training exercises could help bridge this gap, more explicitly demonstrating how the skills can be applied.
