Abstract :

An optimal resistance training program may include acute load variables (intensity, volume, rest intervals, and velocity), exercise order, and periodization model. The sequence of exercises (multi-joint vs. single-joint exercises) significantly affects several acute responses such as repetition performance, neuromuscular activity, oxygen consumption, and rating of perceived exertion. Multiple-joint exercises, such as bench press and back squat, requires a more complex neural responses, considering a high amount of active muscles; when compared to single-joint exercises, such as triceps pushdown, and it has been used to target specific muscle groups, a reduced level of skills and technical involvement. There are several different ways to build the exercise order in a resistance training program; many of them are related to combine both single- and multiple-joint exercises. The purpose of this presentation is to show the acute differences between pre-exhaustion and traditional exercise order on neuromuscular performance in trained men.
