Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine whether different levels of muscular strength, muscular endurance, and girth are maintained by employing a selected weight training program once a week. 1. There is a significant improvement in muscular strength, muscular endurance, and girth as a result of a five week, three-days per-week weight training program. 2. There is a significant improvement in muscular strength, muscular endurance, and girth as a result of a nine week, three-days per week weight training program. 3. A nine week, three-days-per-week weight training program results in a significantly greater gain in muscular strength, muscular endurance, and girth, than a five week, three-days-per-week weight training program. 4. There is no significant difference among groups which terminated conditioning, worked out once per week, and subjects which continued to work out three times per week on the retention or further development of muscular strength, muscular endurance, and girth following a five week weight training program. 5. There is no significant difference among groups which terminated conditioning, worked out once per week, and subjects which continued to work out three times per week on the retention or further development of muscular strength, muscular endurance, and girth following a nine week weight training program.
