Practical ECG for Exercise Science and Sports Medicine
Examine enlargement conditions and study supporting ECGs used to illustrate them.
The Athlete's Clock
In athletes, stride rhythm is often coupled with breathing while running, walking, cycling, or rowing. This is called entrainment of ventilation and locomotion.
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.
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.
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).
Physiological Tests for Elite Athletes 2nd Edition eBook
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.
Recovery for Performance in Sport
The water-immersion recovery technique consists of covering part of the body, or the whole body, in water.
Physiology of Sport and Exercise With Web Study Guide-5th Edition
Inactivity is a major cause of obesity in the United States. In fact, a sedentary lifestyle may be just as important in the development of obesity as overeating!
Physiological Aspects of Sport Training and Performance With Web Resource-2nd Edition
It has been demonstrated that exercise training in previously sedentary individuals has beneficial effects in terms of reducing the incidence of upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) (Nieman et al. 1990; Nieman, Hensen, et al. 1993).
