Purpose: To test the effects of upper and lower body multiple exercise per muscle group resistance training regimen compared to traditional resistance training on resting energy expenditure (REE) 30-45 minutes post exercise, 24, and 48 hours post exercise. Methods: This study used a two way mixed design. Subjects were males ages 18-22 years, not currently participating in a resistance-training program. Subjects were randomly assigned into three groups: an upper body, lower body, and control group. The upper and lower body groups completed both a multiple exercise (three different exercises to comprise three sets per muscle group) and traditional training program, in a randomly assigned order. Intensity (70% of 1RM) and volume (3 sets per muscle group) of training was controlled for. REE was assessed using iWORX gas analysis equipment, with Hans Rudolph Mask and one-way valve setup. Statistics: Repeated measures and paired sample T-test. Results: The difference between baseline and 30-45 minute post training was significant for the multiple exercise group (REE 1601 and 2224 kcal/day, respectively; p=.024), but not for the traditional training group (REE 1731 and 1802 kcal/day, respectively; p. = .403). No significant differences were found between baseline and 24 hour or 48 hour post intervention for either groups. Conclusions: Findings suggest that using a multiple exercise resistance training regimen may increase resting energy expenditure more effectively compared to a traditional strength training design.
