Determining age-related developmental changes in body size (i.e., height and weight) or weight relative to height (BMI) is inadequate for understanding the actual changes that occur, because the body is composed of many different tissues.
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 eBook
Environmental factors, such as wind speed and precipitation, can increase injury risk
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.
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.
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.
Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles
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.
Physical Activity Epidemiology-2nd Edition
Approximately three-quarters of these studies classified women according to three or more levels of physical activity, allowing assessment of a dose�response relation (Lee and Oguma 2006).
Clinical Exercise Physiology-3rd Edition
Auscultation of, or listening to the sounds made by, the heart is but one part of a comprehensive cardiac examination.
