Caterisano, A., Blount, P., Greer, B., Fletcher, B., Farner, J., Kyrikos, D., & Stewart, P. (2003). The effect of SUPERSLOW training on aerobic capacity and body composition in college-age males. Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 35(5), Supplement abstract 2074.
College-age males (N = 39) were assigned to a traditional exercise (ACSM recommended), SUPERSLOW, and control (no formal activity) training condition for 16 weeks.
Traditional training produced significant changes in VO2max, anaerobic threshold, and lean body mass. SUPERSLOW training responses were similar to those of the control group.
Implication. SUPERSLOW training has no effect on VO2max, anaerobic threshold, and lean body mass.
