    Does pre-exercise static stretching inhibit maximal muscular performance? A meta-analytical review.
    L. Simic1, N. Sarabon2, G. Markovic1
    Scand J Med Sci Sports 2013: 23: 131–148

    ABSTRACT

    We applied a meta-analytical approach to derive a robust estimate of the acute effects of pre-exercise static stretching (SS) on strength, power, and explosive muscular performance. A computerized search of articles published between 1966 and December 2010 was performed using PubMed, SCOPUS, and Web of Science databases. A total of 104 studies yielding 61 data points for strength, 12 data points for power, and 57 data points for explosive performance met our inclusion criteria. The pooled estimate of the acute effects of SS on strength, power, and explosive performance, expressed in standardized units as well as in percentages, were -0.10 [95% confidence interval (CI): -0.15 to -0.04], -0.04 (95% CI: -0.16 to 0.08), and -0.03 (95% CI: -0.07 to 0.01), or -5.4% (95% CI: -6.6% to -4.2%), -1.9% (95% CI: -4.0% to 0.2%), and -2.0% (95% CI: -2.8% to -1.3%). These effects were not related to subject's age, gender, or fitness level; however, they were more pronounced in isometric vs dynamic tests, and were related to the total duration of stretch, with the smallest negative acute effects being observed with stretch duration of ≤45 s. We conclude that the usage of SS as the sole activity during warm-up routine should generally be avoided.

    Effects of a Seven Day Overload-Period of High-Intensity Training on Performance and Physiology of Competitive Cyclists

    Bradley Clark1, Vitor P. Costa2, Brendan J. O’Brien1, Luiz G. Guglielmo2, Carl D. Paton3*
    1. School of Health Science, Federation University, Ballarat, Victoria, Australia, 2. Physical Effort Laboratory,
    Federal University of Santa Catarina, Floriano´ polis, Brazil, 3. Faculty of Health and Sport Science, The
    Eastern Institute of Technology, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand

    Objectives

    Competitive endurance athletes commonly undertake periods of overload training in the weeks prior to major competitions. This investigation examined the effects of two seven-day high-intensity overload training regimes (HIT) on performance and physiological characteristics of competitive cyclists.

    Power Athletes and Distance Training

    Physiological and Biomechanical Rationale for Change

    4. Conclusions

    Sustained aerobic training, at even low frequencies and volumes, has been shown to clearly interfere with strength and power development, as well as contribute to risk of overtraining and an ineffective motor learning environment.

    Cyclists’ Improvement of Pedaling Efficacy and Performance After Heavy Strength Training - Ernst A. Hansen, Bent R. Rønnestad, Geir Vegge, and Truls Raastad 2012

    http://brage.bibsys.no/xmlui/bitstre...pdf?sequence=1

    In conclusion, adding heavy strength training to usual endurance training in well-trained cyclists improves pedaling efficacy during 5-min all-out cycling performed after 185 min of cycling.

    but who's got time for those first 185 minutes?

    I do.

    Two things I take from this study.

    1. Goes some way to dispel the myth that enduros don't benefit from weights.
    2. If the benefit are there after 185 minutes, I would think the benefits are even greater after shorter durations.

    Did they do anything to normalize the training loads, or just add weights on top of what the control group did? If they added on, there's nothing to say that additional time/training stress being used on the bike wouldn't have improved performance more.

    From an enduro who lifts weights, I doubt that argument will ever be settled. People succeed both ways, so it's pretty clearly not a first order effect.
    Do you think we're gonna make it? / I don't know unless we try \ you could sit here scared to move / or we could take them by surprise

    Thanks for posting. I'm reading the article now. I'm definitely going to be doing a lot of gym work this winter, no matter what.

    One thing that bugs me - Experimental group was ten men, control group was six men, two women. Why not break it up into two groups of 8/1? Isn't the whole point of a control group to have an otherwise identical sample that you can compare against? Having all the women in one group seems like a bit of an apples/oranges comparison.

    Cold water immersion may not be good after strength training workouts. I've seen clips online before of doctors talking similarly, but this looks to be a pretty comprehensive study.
