Fleishman’s Basic Fitness Test Battery for Evaluation of Physical Fitness Factors; the one repetition maximum scores from five weight training exercises; and the maximum number of bar dips performed for one set: (2) to determine whether weight training during spring football practice is beneficial for strength retention for the duration of spring football practice: and (3) to determine the effectiveness of two weight training programs in the development of strength.
