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.
Biochemistry Primer for Exercise Science-4th Edition
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 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
Auscultation of, or listening to the sounds made by, the heart is but one part of a comprehensive cardiac examination.
Physiology of Sport and Exercise With Web Study Guide-5th Edition
Traditionally, exercise physiologists have recommended one of three regimens to improve aerobic power: continuous exercise at a moderate to high intensity; long, slow (low-intensity) exercise; or interval training.
History of Exercise Physiology
