Intrinsic Motivation and Self-Determination in Exercise and Sport
A flow chart of motivation types and the factors that affect motivation.
Fitness programs and annual physicals can help reduce the leading cause of death for firefighters.
Pollock's Textbook of Cardiovascular Disease and Rehabilitation
Read the foreword for the text dedicated to the memory of Michael L. Pollock, PhD.
Tapering and Peaking for Optimal Performance eBook
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 eBook
Urban environments with high level of pollutants cause concern for outdoor exercisers
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
In athletes, stride rhythm is often coupled with breathing while running, walking, cycling, or rowing. This is called entrainment of ventilation and locomotion.
Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles eBook
The “intrasarcomere” mechanisms, such as the actin–myosin interaction, are mentioned only in passing. It is assumed that the readers are familiar with these mechanisms from courses in muscle physiology.
Biochemistry Primer for Exercise Science 4th Edition eBook
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of short, noncoding RNA molecules that bind to mRNA molecules and play a central role in regulating gene expression through posttranscriptional gene silencing (reviewed in Bushati and Cohen 2007).
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.
