• The High-bar and Low-bar Back Squat: a Biomechanical Analysis

      Glassbrook, D; Brown, S; Helms, E; Duncan, S; Storey, A (Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2017)
      No prior study has compared the joint angle and ground reaction force (Fv) differences between the high-bar back-squat (HBBS) and low-bar back-squat (LBBS) above 90% 1RM. Six male powerlifters (height: 179.2 ± 7.8 cm; ...
    • Hook-grip Improves Power Clean Kinetics and Kinematics

      Oranchuk, D; Lindsay, R; Helms, E; Harbour, E; Storey, A; Drinkwater, E (International Society of Biomechanics in Sports (ISBS), 2018)
      The purpose of this study was to compare one repetition maximum (1RM), as well as biomechanical outputs across a range of loads (75-100%) in the power clean (PC) utilizing the hook grip (HG) or closed-grip (CG). Eleven ...
    • Methods for Regulating and Monitoring Resistance Training

      Helms, E; Kwan, K; Sousa, C; Cronin, J; Storey, A; Zourdos, M (De Gruyter Open, 2020)
      Individualisation can improve resistance training prescription. This is accomplished via monitoring or autoregulating training. Autoregulation adjusts variables at an individualised pace per performance, readiness, or ...
    • Rating of Perceived Exertion as a Method of Volume Autoregulation Within a Periodized Program

      Helms, ER; Zourdos, M; Storey, A; Cronin, J (Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2017)
      Rating of perceived exertion as a method of volume autoregulation within a periodized program. J Strength Cond Res 32(6): 1627-1636, 2018-The purpose of this investigation was to observe how a rating of perceived exertion ...
    • RPE vs Percentage 1RM Loading in Periodized Programs Matched for Sets and Repetitions

      Helms, ER; Byrnes, R; Cooke, D; Haischer, M; Carzoli, J; Johnson, T; Cross, M; Cronin, J; Storey, A; Zourdos, MC (Frontiers Media S.A., 2018)
      Purpose: To investigate differences between rating of perceived exertion (RPE) and percentage one-repetition maximum (1RM) load assignment in resistance-trained males (19–35 years) performing protocols with matched sets ...
    • Self-rated Accuracy of Rating of Perceived Exertion-based Load Prescription in Powerlifters

      Helms, ER; Brown, SR; Cross, MR; Storey, A; Cronin, J; Zourdos, MC (Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2017)
      This study assessed male (n = 9) and female (n = 3) powerlifters' (18–49 years) ability to select loads using the repetitions in reserve–based rating of perceived exertion (RPE) scale for a single set for squat, bench ...
