Including functional activities in exercise programs follows a client-centered and goal-driven approach to exercise prescription for older adults.
Tapering and Peaking for Optimal Performance eBook
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.
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
Studies indicate a disproportionate number of professional athletes are born in the first quarter of the year, and grow up in cities with populations less than 500,000 but greater than 10,000.
Laboratory Manual for Exercise Physiology With Web Resource
Misconceptions abound about our breathing, or ventilation (V. E). Of course, ventilation is necessary for the exchange of gases between the atmosphere and our metabolism.
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.
Physical Activity Epidemiology 2nd Edition eBook
Weight gain resulting from excess storage of fat is ultimately explained by an intake of calories that exceeds those expended.
Advanced Exercise Endocrinology eBook
In the United States and Europe, between 5% and 8% of the adult population is estimated to suffer from T2D, and in genetically prone subpopulations, the prevalence may be as high as approximately 50% (Fr�sig & Richter, 2009).
Physiological Aspects of Sport Training and Performance 2nd Edition eBook With Web Resource
The two most common whole proteins used in dietary supplements are casein and whey.
Physiology of Sport and Exercise 6th Edition eBook
We have considered the major changes that occur as the human body becomes acclimated to altitude and how these adaptations affect performance at altitude. But is there any advantage to training at altitude to improve performance at sea level?
