Ric Charlesworth was the national coach of the Australian women�s field hockey team from 1993 - 2000, when they won gold medals at both the 1996 and 2000 Olympic Games.
Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology
Even after centuries of research, the fundamental system of control of thermal balance in humans, as well as other mammals and homeotherms, remains controversial.
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
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.
The Athlete's Clock
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
The �intrasarcomere� mechanisms, such as the actin�myosin interaction, are mentioned only in passing. It is assumed that the readers are familiar with these mechanisms from courses in muscle physiology.
Biochemistry Primer for Exercise Science 4th Edition eBook
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).
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.
Recovery for Performance in Sport eBook
While performance outcomes are often the central focus for any athlete or sport scientist, compression garments may have greater advantages to improve recovery following an exercise bout (Duffield, Cannon, and King 2010).
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.
