Urban environments with high level of pollutants cause concern for outdoor exercisers
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.
Physical Activity and Obesity eBook-2nd Edition
The importance of evaluating overweight individuals has increased as the epidemic of overweight has worsened.
Advanced Neuromuscular Exercise Physiology eBook
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
We take a closer look at studies into the effects daily activity and caloric restriction have on animals, and what the results might mean for humans.
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.
Physical Activity Epidemiology-2nd Edition
The epidemiologic models previously described provide a framework for considering the association among variables in an attempt to determine cause and effect.
Physiological Tests for Elite Athletes-2nd Edition
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.
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).
History of Exercise Physiology
Several research designs and technologies have been used over the past two decades in the effort to identify genomic regions, genes, and sequence variants associated with exercise behavior and exercise biology traits.
