Determining age-related developmental changes in body size (i.e., height and weight) or weight relative to height (BMI) is inadequate for understanding the actual changes that occur, because the body is composed of many different tissues.
Advanced Cardiovascular Exercise Physiology
Resistance exercise is seldom used with the expressed purpose of enhancing cardiovascular function, but it does result in acute and chronic cardiovascular changes.
Advanced Neuromuscular Exercise Physiology eBook
Chronic electrical stimulation of muscles has been used extensively during the past 30 years to demonstrate the limits of adaptability of muscles to increased activity.
The Athlete's Clock
We take a closer look at studies into the effects daily activity and caloric restriction have on animals, and what the results might mean for humans.
The Athlete's Clock
Athletes do their best to realize their genetic gifts and hard work in just a few clicks of the clock called competition. This phenomenon is seen through moments in time that serve to define the essence of sports itself.
The Athlete's Clock eBook
In athletes, stride rhythm is often coupled with breathing while running, walking, cycling, or rowing. This is called entrainment of ventilation and locomotion.
Physiology of Sport and Exercise Web Study Guide-5th Edition
Muscle soreness felt a day or two after a heavy bout of exercise is not totally understood, yet researchers are continuing to give us greater insight into this phenomenon.
Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles
When a fully activated muscle or a fiber is stretched with a moderate speed from one constant length to another, the force recorded on its end exceeds the maximum isometric force at the same muscle length.
Physiological Tests for Elite Athletes 2nd Edition eBook
Although the blood lactate response to exercise is used widely to control and monitor training programs, many factors in addition to training adaptation can affect the blood lactate response. Therefore, one needs to consider the following points when collecting, analyzing, and interpreting blood lactate measurements.
Physiology of Sport and Exercise With Web Study Guide-5th Edition
Traditionally, exercise physiologists have recommended one of three regimens to improve aerobic power: continuous exercise at a moderate to high intensity; long, slow (low-intensity) exercise; or interval training.
