Environmental factors, such as wind speed and precipitation, can increase injury risk
Tapering and Peaking for Optimal Performance eBook
Bob Bowman, most recently known for his successful coaching of Michael Phelps in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, offers advice on the planning phase of tapering for elite swimmers.
Advanced Cardiovascular Exercise Physiology eBook
Resistance exercise is seldom used with the expressed purpose of enhancing cardiovascular function, but it does result in acute and chronic cardiovascular changes.
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.
Physiology of Sport and Exercise Presentation Package plus Image Bank-5th Edition
Muscle soreness felt a day or two after a heavy bout of exercise is not totally understood, yet researchers are continuing to give us greater insight into this phenomenon.
Physical Activity Epidemiology 2nd Edition eBook
Costs and barriers associated with a behavior have been recognized as important influences on that behavior since theories about how people make decisions began to proliferate in the 1950s (Janis and Mann 1977).
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
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.
Physiological Tests for Elite Athletes 2nd Edition eBook
A variety of measurement approaches have been used to examine the anticipatory skill (i.e., advance information usage patterns) of elite and subelite performers involved in �open,� interceptive sport skills.
History of Exercise Physiology eBook
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.
