  1. Data are mean ± SD. n = 11 (one subject’s body composition data was incomplete)
  2. BP bench press, kg kilograms, RTF repetitions to failure
  3. aVolume Load is calculated as the total amount of weight lifted per week (i.e., repetitions x weight for each set). b N = 7 (four subjects could not do the exercise tests due to overuse injuries)
