Several studies have been performed to establish the amount of physical activity needed to maintain weight loss
Physical Activity and Obesity eBook-2nd Edition
The importance of evaluating overweight individuals has increased as the epidemic of overweight has worsened.
Advanced Cardiovascular Exercise Physiology
It is not unusual for athletes to exhibit an �abnormal� ECG due to the effect of exercise training on the anatomy and autonomic control of the heart. However, it is important to understand which ECG abnormalities may be physiologic and which are likely to be pathologic.
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.
The Athlete's Clock eBook
The concept of pacing is rooted in the idea that athletes make cognitive, purposeful decisions regarding velocity based on previous experience and sensory input.
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.
Physical Activity Epidemiology 2nd Edition eBook
The epidemiologic models previously described provide a framework for considering the association among variables in an attempt to determine cause and effect.
Clinical Exercise Physiology 3rd Edition eBook
Initially, exercise and physical activity should focus on cardiovascular (i.e., aerobic) modes.
Physiological Aspects of Sport Training and Performance 2nd Edition eBook With Web Resource
A relatively new noninvasive method to investigate changes in muscle architecture is becoming popular. The use of ultrasonography to image muscle structure has proven to be a valid and reliable method of examining changes in muscle.
Biochemistry Primer for Exercise Science-4th Edition
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of short, noncoding RNA molecules that bind to mRNA molecules and play a central role in regulating gene expression through posttranscriptional gene silencing (reviewed in Bushati and Cohen 2007).
