When the ball is snapped in football, both players begin to accelerate. The player who can accelerate most quickly will attain the greatest velocity before the two collide. What allows one player to accelerate more quickly? The answer is power.
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.
Physiology of Sport and Exercise Presentation Package plus Image Bank-5th Edition
Inactivity is a major cause of obesity in the United States. In fact, a sedentary lifestyle may be just as important in the development of obesity as overeating!
Physiology of Sport and Exercise 5th Edition eBook With Web Study Guide
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.
Laboratory Manual for Exercise Physiology eBook 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
The nonhomeostatic control of feeding and the operation of hedonic neural substrates that facilitate food intake despite supranormal body fat accumulation instruct us that the prerequisites for maintaining healthy body mass level are restraint in eating food, high levels of physical activity, and periodic episodes of weight loss.
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.
Recovery for Performance in Sport
In many sporting activities, because of how competitions are designed, athletes are forced to reproduce performances within a short time frame.
Biochemistry Primer for Exercise Science-4th Edition
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.
