In older previously sedentary individuals endurance training imposes a more effective stimulus to enhance cardiometabolic health compared with resistance or sprint training. We examined the effect of replacing a portion of endurance training with combined resistance and/or sprint training and how this influences cardiometabolic health indicators in masters endurance cyclists. Twenty-seven well-trained male road cyclists (53.7± 8.2 years) were allocated to a resistance and track sprintcycling training group (RTC, n= 10), an endurance and track sprint-cycling group (ETC, n = 7) or a control endurance group (CTRL, n = 10). Both the RTC and ETC groups completed a 12-week intervention of specific training while the CTRL group maintained their endurance training load. Lower limb lean mass (LLM), trunk fat mass (TFM), fasting blood glucose (FBG), total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG), systolic blood pressure (SBP), and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) were measured before and after the intervention period. TFM decreased for all groups (P< 0.05) while LLM significantly increased for RTC and ETC groups (P< 0.05). No significant between group or time effects were observed for FBG, TC, TG, SBP, or DBP. The results suggest that replacing a portion of endurance training with 12 weeks of ETC or RTC training favourably affects body composition by lowering TFM and increasing LLM without negatively affecting cardiometabolic health indicators in welltrained masters endurance cyclists. ...

Inter‐individual variation in responses to resistance training in cardiometabolic health indicators Ahtiainen, Juha P.; Sallinen, Janne; Häkkinen, Keijo; Sillanpää, Elina (John Wiley & Sons, 2020)Abstract Resistance training (RT) may improve metabolic health; however, the extent of its effectiveness is constantly evaluated to assess improvements in the group means, thus obscuring the heterogeneous individual ...

Effects of heavy resistance training on short-distance sprint performance Meinhold, Marius (2019)Introduction. Short-distance sprinting is a critical component of physical performance in many sports. Substantial evidence associates sprint performance over the first 30m with the level of maximal strength of an individual. ...
