Abstract

The purpose of this study is to elucidate the effects of high intensity-strength training (S) in two consecutive days in different athletes. 20 subjects divided in two groups: 11 futsal players of semiprofessional level (FG) (22,5±1,4 yr) and 9 endurance trained athletes of national level (EG) (21±1,3 yr). The intervention was composed by two training sessions (4 sets of 3 repetitions at 8590% of their 1RM in the squat exercise) separated by 24h. Two days before the first workout and 9 days after the second workout subjects were measured for 1RM in squat (90 knee angle). Tests: 1 Maximum Repetition in half-squat exercise. Variables: weight in one maximum repetititum (kg); Force (N); and power (w). Instrument: MicromuscleLab Power (ergotest technology as-Norway). The results showed increasing in 1MR in weight (p<0.05), force production ((p<0.05) but didn’t showed significant differences in power output in 1MR It was concluded that acute effects of high intensity strength training using this protocol is advantageous for increasing force production in futsal players and cyclists.
