Description

David F. Putnam Science Center, Room 154
This purpose of this study is to examine effects of a brief educational pamphlet on strength and frequency of lifting in former high school athletes. Twenty male volunteers will be sought from college recreation weight room. Participants will be excluded if they're females, physical education/ athletic training majors, or have been injured in last 6 months. A pretest of 1 Rep Max, jump-pad, 40 meter sprint, and frequency of lifting then a knowledge quiz will be given to determine group baseline. High-knowledge participants will be used as comparison group. Low-knowledge participants will receive and educational brochure about best practices for increasing muscular strength, including suggestions for protein intake. The quiz will be given immediately after brochure to test recall. A post-test of all previous measures will be performed 4 weeks after the initial testing. RMANOVA will be used to test statistical differences between groups and from pre-test and post-test with p= 0.10.
