Video transcript start:

Hi, I’m Espen from Western Norway, University of Applied Science.

Our study compared the effects of different strength training intensities in climate performance and in climate specific strength. A ten week training intervention revealed a significant improvement in climate specific strength. In test like finger hang and bent-arm hang.

In climate performance we measured an 11 and 12 percent non-significant improvement in both training groups.

So for more details check out the article.
