Intrinsic Motivation and Self-Determination in Exercise and Sport
A flow chart of motivation types and the factors that affect motivation.
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 Environmental Exercise Physiology eBook
Environmental factors, such as wind speed and precipitation, can increase injury risk
Advanced Cardiovascular Exercise Physiology
Aerobic exercise training has a variety of hemostatic effects that together provide a cardioprotective effect
Advanced Neuromuscular Exercise Physiology eBook
Here, we will discuss how strength training results in directly measurable changes in the way motor units are recruited during effort.
The Athlete's Clock eBook
Studies indicate a disproportionate number of professional athletes are born in the first quarter of the year, and grow up in cities with populations less than 500,000 but greater than 10,000.
Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles eBook
When a fully activated muscle or a fiber is stretched with a moderate speed from one constant length to another, the force recorded on its end exceeds the maximum isometric force at the same muscle length.
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 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.
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).
