In athletes, stride rhythm is often coupled with breathing while running, walking, cycling, or rowing. This is called entrainment of ventilation and locomotion.
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.
Advanced Exercise Endocrinology
The nonhomeostatic control of feeding and the operation of hedonic neural substrates that facilitate food intake despite supranormal body fat accumulation instruct us that the prerequisites for maintaining healthy body mass level are restraint in eating food, high levels of physical activity, and periodic episodes of weight loss.
