Environmental factors, such as wind speed and precipitation, can increase injury risk
Physical Activity and Obesity eBook-2nd Edition
Several studies have been performed to establish the amount of physical activity needed to maintain weight loss
Advanced Neuromuscular Exercise Physiology
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
Athletes do their best to realize their genetic gifts and hard work in just a few clicks of the clock called competition. This phenomenon is seen through moments in time that serve to define the essence of sports itself.
Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles eBook
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.
Biochemistry Primer for Exercise Science 4th Edition eBook
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.
Physiological Tests for Elite Athletes 2nd Edition eBook
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.
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.
History of Exercise Physiology
Despite its brief history (1927-1947), no physiology laboratory in America is more revered than the Harvard Fatigue Laboratory.
History of Exercise Physiology eBook
In 1719, Friedrich Hoffmann (1660-1742), a physician from Halle, obtained his doctoral degree with experimental investigations about the effects of physical exercise on the human cardiovascular system and on digestion.
