Therefore, it is possible to use acceleration data to assess the loading intensity (magnitude of loading × loading frequency 14 ) of physical activity on the underlying skeleton, at the site which the accelerometer is attached. Previous research has shown that

Therefore, the aims of the present study were (1) to analyze the relationship between movement velocity and relative load (%1RM) in the PU exercise to assess the use of velocity data to estimate loading intensity; and (2) to determine the velocity decline during a single set to failure

Results Table  1 displays the 1RM data and mean differences between actual and predicted 1RM values for the 3 groups of athletes, indicating that the predicted 1RM values were not different from their respective actual values for all loading intensities (<70% 1RM, >70% 1RM, and

This study evaluated “Every Step Counts!”—a 10-wk, structured walking intervention in a community-based senior organization—on promoting physical activity participation, fitness, and well-being among older adults (age ≥ 55 yr). The intervention prescribed pedometer-defined walks in weekly walking schedules. These were fitness-tailored and structured in walking load (intensity/volume) according to the principles of training progression. This intervention was offered as a social activity at meeting points of a community-based senior organization. Twenty-nine meeting points (n = 432) constituted the intervention condition. Ten meeting points (n = 148) formed the wait-list control condition. Measurements were organized at intervention start (pretest) and end (posttest). Intention-to-treat linear mixed models showed small positive intervention effects on physical activity, fitness, and aspects of well-being. These results confirm the effectiveness of structured walking interventions with systematic training progression and underscore the value of community-based senior organizations as intervention settings for older adults.

study has analyzed the relationship between MPV and the %1RM to assess the possibility of using velocity data to estimate loading intensity in WB players in BP exercise. At the same time, these manifestations of force could also influence WB performance, such as accelerations, velocity, repeated sprint

This again occurred despite trivial changes in external load/intensity throughout the 2-wk intervention (Figure  4 ). As moderate to large improvements
