Muscle strains are the most common cause of muscle injury.
Physical Activity and Type 2 Diabetes
A look at the issues related to type 2 diabetes.
Tapering and Peaking for Optimal Performance
Ric Charlesworth was the national coach of the Australian women�s field hockey team from 1993 - 2000, when they won gold medals at both the 1996 and 2000 Olympic Games.
Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology
Urban environments with high level of pollutants cause concern for outdoor exercisers
Tapering and Peaking for Optimal Performance eBook
Although the complexities of a group taper can be daunting, the basic structure of a segment of relative rest
following the regular season followed by a time of serious training culminating in a taper is a reasonable strategy for team coaches to adopt.
Physical Activity and Obesity eBook-2nd Edition
The importance of evaluating overweight individuals has increased as the epidemic of overweight has worsened.
Advanced Cardiovascular Exercise Physiology
It is not unusual for athletes to exhibit an �abnormal� ECG due to the effect of exercise training on the anatomy and autonomic control of the heart. However, it is important to understand which ECG abnormalities may be physiologic and which are likely to be pathologic.
The Athlete's Clock eBook
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.
Biochemistry Primer for Exercise Science 4th Edition eBook
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) are sometimes collectively referred to as reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (RONS). RONS, and particularly the highly reactive hydroxyl radical, can react with many molecules in cells, including DNA, proteins, and lipids.
Physiological Tests for Elite Athletes-2nd Edition
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.
Several research designs and technologies have been used over the past two decades in the effort to identify genomic regions, genes, and sequence variants associated with exercise behavior and exercise biology traits.
It has been demonstrated that exercise training in previously sedentary individuals has beneficial effects in terms of reducing the incidence of upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) (Nieman et al. 1990; Nieman, Hensen, et al. 1993).
In 1719, Friedrich Hoffmann (1660-1742), a physician from Halle, obtained his doctoral degree with experimental investigations about the effects of physical exercise on the human cardiovascular system and on digestion.
A relatively new noninvasive method to investigate changes in muscle architecture is becoming popular. The use of ultrasonography to image muscle structure has proven to be a valid and reliable method of examining changes in muscle.
