Abstract: The present study aimed to investigate the correlation between the temperature of the thigh and fatigue in the resistance training. The sample consisted in 18 untrained male subjects (22.12 ± 4.1 years , 1.73 ± 0.05 m, 67.25 ± 5.5 kg, skinfold from the right thigh: 12.5 ± 2.1 mm). The volunteers underwent a single test session in which they performed 5 sets of the exercise Horizontal Leg Press using the weight determined in a 10RM test. The volunteers were instructed to perform as many repetitions to concentric failure (maximum repetitions) in each set. Prior to initiate the exercise, the temperature of the right thigh was measured in all volunteers at the midpoint between the anterior superior iliac spine and the superior border of the patella, in the longitudinal axis. This measurement was repeated immediately after the last set. To obtain the temperature of the right thigh was used an infrared camera brand FLIR® model E6 (FLIR Systems, Boston, USA). The mean maximal repetitions pe rformed in the first and last set and the average temperatures of the thigh before and after exercise were compared by paired t test. The percentage change in the maximum number of repetitions performed between the first and last set was correlated (Pearson correlations) with the percentage change in the temperature of the thigh before and after exercise. Results showed a significant reduction between the maximum repetitions performed during the first and last set and between the temperatures of the thigh before and after exercise. The correlation between the mean percentage change of maximum repetitions performed during the first and last set and the percentage change in the temperature of the thigh before and after exercise was positive (r=0.12) but was not significant (p=0.631). From the results of this study it can be concluded that a reducing in the performance from a resistance training session for thigh muscle, is not accompanied by an increase in temperature of the thigh. Therefore, the measurement of the temperature of the thigh using IRC may not be an effective way of load control during a session of resistance training. (More)
