Youth Physical Activity and Sedentary Behavior eBook
Applications of information on youth health outcomes for both researchers and professionals
Physical Activity and Obesity eBook-2nd Edition
Several studies have been performed to establish the amount of physical activity needed to maintain weight loss
Practical ECG for Exercise Science and Sports Medicine eBook
Learn how the physiological stress of exercise elicits a predictable cascade of responses on the ECG.
Advanced Cardiovascular Exercise Physiology eBook
Resistance exercise is seldom used with the expressed purpose of enhancing cardiovascular function, but it does result in acute and chronic cardiovascular changes.
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.
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.
Advanced Exercise Endocrinology
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 Tests for Elite Athletes-2nd Edition
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.
Physiological Tests for Elite Athletes 2nd Edition eBook
A variety of measurement approaches have been used to examine the anticipatory skill (i.e., advance information usage patterns) of elite and subelite performers involved in �open,� interceptive sport skills.
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).
