Cover Story (view full-size image): This study investigated the effect of training status on adaptations to 11 weeks of block periodization training. Fifteen males were recruited for this study and placed into strong (squat: body mass = 1.96 ± 0.16), moderate (squat: body mass = 1.46 ± 0.14), or weak (squat: body mass = 1.17 ± 0.07) groups based on relative strength. All groups completed the same block periodization training program. Strong correlations were found between strength levels and rate of improvement in strength and explosive ability. Additionally, large–very large effect sizes between groups were found to favor the weak group over the moderate and strong group for all performance variables. These findings indicate that training status may substantially alter the response to a resistance training program. View this paper
