Intrinsic Motivation and Self-Determination in Exercise and Sport
A flow chart of motivation types and the factors that affect motivation.
Pollock's Textbook of Cardiovascular Disease and Rehabilitation
Although the mechanisms are not clear, both short and long sleep have been associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
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-2nd Edition
The environment you live in plays a factor into the level of physical activity you achieve everyday
Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology eBook
Even after centuries of research, the fundamental system of control of thermal balance in humans, as well as other mammals and homeotherms, remains controversial.
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.
Physiology of Sport and Exercise Web Study Guide-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
When a fully activated muscle or a fiber is stretched with a moderate speed from one constant length to another, the force recorded on its end exceeds the maximum isometric force at the same muscle length.
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 eBook
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.
