Fitness programs and annual physicals can help reduce the leading cause of death for firefighters.
Tapering and Peaking for Optimal Performance
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
Several studies have been performed to establish the amount of physical activity needed to maintain weight loss
Practical ECG for Exercise Science and Sports Medicine
Learn how the physiological stress of exercise elicits a predictable cascade of responses on the ECG.
Advanced Neuromuscular Exercise Physiology
Here we discuss some of the general physiological mechanisms that maintain blood pressure when muscle demands for oxygen delivery are high and also the local mechanisms that match blood flow to metabolic demand.
Physiology of Sport and Exercise Presentation Package plus Image Bank-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.
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).
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.
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.
History of Exercise Physiology
Despite its brief history (1927-1947), no physiology laboratory in America is more revered than the Harvard Fatigue Laboratory.
