• Block periodization of endurance training – a systematic review and meta-analysis 

      Mølmen, Knut Sindre; Øfsteng, Sjur Johansen; Rønnestad, Bent (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Background: Block periodization (BP) has been proposed as an alternative to traditional (TRAD) organization of the annual training plan for endurance athletes. Objective: To our knowledge, this is the first meta-analysis ...
    • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease does not impair responses to resistance training

    • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease does not impair responses to resistance training 

      Mølmen, Knut Sindre; Hammarström, Jens Konrad Daniel; Falch, Gunnar Slettaløkken; Grundtvig, Morten; Koll, Lise; Hanestadhaugen, Marita; Khan, Yusuf; Ahmad, Rafi; Malerbakken, Bente; Rødølen, Tore J.; Lien, Roger; Rønnestad, Bent; Raastad, Truls; Ellefsen, Stian (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Background: Subjects with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are prone to accelerated decay of muscle strength and mass with advancing age. This is believed to be driven by disease-inherent systemic pathophysiologies, ...
    • Muscular performance decreases with increasing complexity of resistance exercises in subjects with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease 

      Mølmen, Knut Sindre; Evensen Thy, Jonas; Thallaug Dalane, Stine; Ellefsen, Stian; Falch, Gunnar Slettaløkken (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) is associated with impaired muscle functions in addition to the impaired cardiopulmonary capacity inherent to the disease. The purpose of this study was to compare muscular performance ...
    • Peripheral adaptations to endurance training - Effect of active muscle mass 

      Mølmen, Knut Sindre; Hallén, Jostein; Rud, Bjarne (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether adaptations to endurance training are affected by active muscle mass during training. Eleven healthy subjects performed 5 weeks of one‐legged knee extension (1‐KE) training ...
    • Vitamin D3 supplementation does not enhance the effects of resistance training in older adults 

      Mølmen, Knut Sindre; Hammarström, Jens Konrad Daniel; Pedersen, Karianne; Lie, Anne Cecilie Lian; Steile, Ragnvald B.; Nygård, Håvard; Khan, Yusuf; Hamarsland, Håvard; Koll, Lise; Hanestadhaugen, Marita; Eriksen, Atle Lie; Grindaker, Eirik; Whist, Jon Elling; Buck, Daniel; Ahmad, Rafi; Strand, Tor Arne; Rønnestad, Bent R.; Ellefsen, Stian (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Background: Lifestyle therapy with resistance training is a potent measure to counteract age-related loss in muscle strength and mass. Unfortunately, many individuals fail to respond in the expected manner. This phenomenon ...
