Abstract Slow velocity resistance exercise uses purposely slow movement velocity (e.g., 10 s concentric and eccentric phases) which limits the loads that can be lifted. (e.g., 0.05]; Cort: [Post - Slow = 258.5±122.9 nmolL-1 vs. Trad = 284.7±142.0 nmolL-1; p>0.05]). Only Trad increased Tes above resting values (27.15±6.9 vs 32.40±8.5 nmolL-1; p0.05]). Only Trad increased Tes above resting values (27.15±6.9 vs 32.40±8.5 nmolL-1; p<0.05). HLa increased after both protocols, but Trad produced a larger response (7.82±2.97 vs 13.81±2.07 mmolL-1; p<0.05). Contrary to reports in previous literature, slow resistance exercise did not produce greater hormonal or lactate responses than the traditional resistance exercise session.
