• Eccentric cycling does not improve cycling performance in amateur cyclists 

      Paulsen, Gøran; Eidsheim, Hedda; Helland, Christian; Seynnes, Olivier R.; Solberg, Paul Andre; Rønnestad, Bent (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Eccentric cycling training induces muscle hypertrophy and increases joint power output in non-athletes. Moreover, eccentric cycling can be considered a movement-specific type of strength training for cyclists, but it is ...
    • Force-velocity profiling in athletes: Reliability and agreement across methods 

      Lindberg, Kolbjørn Andreas; Solberg, Paul Andre; Bjørnsen, Thomas; Helland, Christian; Rønnestad, Bent; Haugen, Thomas André; Østerås, Sindre; Kristoffersen, Morten; Paulsen, Gøran (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      The aim of the study was to examine the test-retest reliability and agreement across methods for assessing individual force-velocity (FV) profiles of the lower limbs in athletes. Using a multicenter approach, 27 male ...
    • Power production and biochemical markers of metabolic stress and muscle damage following a single bout of short-sprint and heavy strength exercise in well-trained cyclists 

      Kristoffersen, Morten; Sandbakk, Øyvind; Tønnessen, Espen; Svendsen, Ida S.; Paulsen, Gøran; Ersvær, Elisabeth; Nygård, Irene; Rostad, Kari; Ryningen, Anita; Iversen, Vegard Vereide; Skovereng, Knut; Rønnestad, Bent; Gundersen, Hilde (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Purpose: Although strength and sprint training are widely used methods in competitive cycling, no previous studies have compared the acute responses and recovery rates following such sessions among highly trained cyclists. ...
