An Annotated Bibliography of Isotonic Weight-Training Methods.
Wysong, John V.
This literature study was conducted to compare and evaluate various types and techniques of weight lifting so that a weight lifting program could be selected or devised for a secondary school. Annotations of 32 research reports, journal articles, and monographs on isotonic strength training are presented. The literature in the first part of the study justifies the importance of weight training based upon its popularity and benefits. A review and identification of various strength training methods is presented in the second section. Materials in the third section deal with the physiological effect of weight training, addressing the body's reaction to weight training, the aerobic and anaerobic stages in maximal muscular contractions, and the derived strength and aerobic benefits from weight lifting. In the fourth section, studies evaluating various weight lifting techniques are reviewed, comparing repetitions, sets, and number of workouts per week. The fifth section provides research on motivational techniques along with measurement suggestions. A summary of the findings and conclusions based on comparisons of cost and effectiveness lead to four recommendations on equipment and methodology for high school weight training. A glossary of weight training terms is provided. (Author/JD)
