Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Superset Strength Training for Time-efficiency
Official Title  ICMJE Superset Strength Training for Time-efficiency - A Randomized Controlled Pilot Study
Brief Summary

Physical inactivity is a global challenge and there is an urgent need to find strategies to increases people's activity levels. Strength training is one of the activities that is recommended to engage in regularly by both the American College of Sports Medicine and the World Health Organization. Understanding how strength training can be done effectively without spending much time could potentially increase people's involvement in strength training, as lack of time often is reported as barrier to training. Superset strength training can potentially be a time-efficient way of strength training, as this training method has been found to take half the time of the traditional ways of training.

The aim of the present study is therefore to compare the effects of superset strength training and traditional strength training on muscular strength, body composition and fatigue.

Detailed Description Not Provided
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Not Applicable
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Other
Condition  ICMJE Sedentary Lifestyle
Intervention  ICMJE
  • Behavioral: Superset strength training
    Three weeks of familiarization (two times per week) to the exercises leg-press, bench press, lateral pulldown and seated rows, followed by superset strength training two days per week for 12-weeks. Superset 1 are bench-press and seated rows, and superset 2 are leg-press and lateral pulldown. Each superset is performed three times.
  • Behavioral: Traditional strength training
    Three weeks of familiarization (two times per week) to the exercises leg-press, bench press, lateral pulldown and seated rows, followed by strength training two days per week for 12-weeks. Each exercise is performed for three sets with rest intervals between each set.
Study Arms  ICMJE
  • Experimental: Superset strength training
    This is the experimental group that performs strength training with sets and rest intervals programmed in a superset manner
    Intervention: Behavioral: Superset strength training
  • Active Comparator: Traditional strength training
    This is the comparator group that engages in strength training with sets and rest intervals programmed in accordance with the recommendations from The American College of Sports Medicine
    Intervention: Behavioral: Traditional strength training
