A targeted load-carriage training program elicits positive adaptations after 10-weeks

Research output: Contribution to journalConference paperResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to identify and characterise physical performance responses to a targeted 10-week load-carriage physical training intervention in males. Performance measures of maximal strength, heart rate, rating of perceived exertion, and basic fitness from nine male civilians before and after the 10-week training intervention are presented. There were significant increases in maximal force (~200 N) and aerobic performance (Level. Shuttle 8.9 vs 9,4 variables). Small-to-large effect sizes were shown for basic fitness and perceptual responses. The 10-week load-carriage physical training intervention elicited physical performance improvements and may facilitate load-carriage task performance.
