Laboratory Manual for Exercise Physiology With Web Resource
In the transition from rest to exercise, systolic blood pressure initially rises rapidly, then levels off once steady state is attained (1, 3).
Physical Activity Epidemiology-2nd Edition
Weight gain resulting from excess storage of fat is ultimately explained by an intake of calories that exceeds those expended.
Advanced Exercise Endocrinology
In the United States and Europe, between 5% and 8% of the adult population is estimated to suffer from T2D, and in genetically prone subpopulations, the prevalence may be as high as approximately 50% (Fr�sig & Richter, 2009).
Physiological Tests for Elite Athletes-2nd Edition
Despite the widespread integration of hydrotherapy into an athlete�s postexercise recovery regime, information regarding these interventions is largely anecdotal. Although a number of physiological responses to water immersion are well researched, the underlying mechanisms related to postexercise recovery are poorly understood.
