MYOBAND 2021 Fitness and Supplement study
Start date: from 26th of July
Location: Reaseheath College, Nantwich, Cheshire, CW5 6DF, UK.
Are you interested in taking part in a Fitness and Supplement study? You may be among the first in the world to test a state of the art protein supplement. You’ll not only be helping us test just how effective supplements are, you’ll also get the chance to find out how your strength performance improves over 0, 4 and 8 week intervals. At the end of the study, you’ll also take with you a goody bag for participating!
You’ll be placed into one of 4 groups and you’ll need to train (4-6) times per week consistently through the study and will be asked to complete a basic training diary to confirm at least 85% adherence over the 8 weeks. In addition to this you can only use a supplement that will be provided to you with no other supplement to be used. Nutrition will be maintained through the study and you’ll be keeping a simple food diary at least 3 times per week.
Testing days at a fitness lab, will last either a morning or afternoon session, which involves warm up, resistance session and interval style CV session. Health screen and informed consent forms will be completed on the first test session. Height, weight, upper arm and thigh circumferences and bioelectric impedance analysis will be collected in the lab. Then we would move to the gym and complete a progressive 10 min warm up on a bike followed by 5 minutes of movement specific dynamic stretching.You’ll then perform three exercises to test your performance:
