MAXIMAL STRENGTH, POWER AND AEROBIC ENDURANCE ADAPTATIONS TO CONCURRENT STRENGTH AND SPRINT INTERVAL TRAINING – 2014


Gregory S Cantrell Brian K Schilling Max R Paquette Zsolt Murlasits
AIM/DESIGN
– 16 men (25.6±6.1 yrs)
– VO2max and time to exhaustion (TTE) were measured to determine if sprint interval training (SIT) would augment aerobic performance
– ST (n = 7) was performed 2 days/week and CT (n = 7) was performed 4 days/week for 12 wks
– CT was separated by 24 h to reduce the influence of acute fatigue
– Training intensity for ST was set at 85 % 1RM and SIT trained using a modified Wingate protocol, adjusted to 20 s.
RESULTS
(1) Upper- and lower-body strength improved significantly after training with no difference between the groups
(2) VO2max increased 40.9 ± 8.4 to 42.3 ± 7.1 ml/kg/min for CT, whereas ST remained unchanged
(3) A significant difference in VO2max was observed between groups post-intervention (CT: 42.3 ± 7.1 vs. ST: 36.0 ± 3.0 ml/kg/min)
(4) A main effect for time and group was observed in TTE
(5) A significant main effect for time was observed in average power
CONCLUSION
(1) SIT performed concurrently with heavy strength training on separate days does not appear to interfere with the development of maximal strength
(2) Aerobic performance measures (i.e.,VO2max) appear to respond positively to low volume, high-intensity SIT
