The effects of compression garments on performance of prolonged manual labour exercise and recovery

March 7, 2017

High physical demands exist in construction and mining industries, as workers are required to lift, carry, transport and manipulate heavy loads. Movements performed are often repetitive or prolonged in duration, resulting in physiological and psychological fatigue, and consequently impact on worker health and safety.

Effect of participantsí static stretching knowledge or deception on the responses to prolonged stretching

March 7, 2017

Much of the static stretching (SS) literature reports performance impairments with prolonged SS. However, the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP)(Behm et al. 2016a) position stand illustrated that the SS-induced impairments are not consistent as their SS data revealed 119 significant performance reductions, 145 non-significant findings and 6 significant improvements following SS.

Effects of aerobic training, resistance training, or both on cardiorespiratory and musculoskeletal fitness in adolescents with obesity: the HEARTY trial

March 7, 2017

This paper examines the effects of aerobic, resistance, and combined exercise training on cardiorespiratory and musculoskeletal fitness in adolescents with obesity.

Polymorphisms of the β-adrenergic receptors 1 and 3 are associated with exercise behaviours in healthy young university students

March 7, 2017

Inactivity and sedentary behaviours contribute to ~5.3 million deaths annually. A significant proportion of these deaths are due to complications from type 2 diabetes and the insulin resistance syndrome that precedes it. Although regular physical activity is the most effective intervention for the prevention of insulin resistance, significant variability exists in both the effectiveness of and adherence to, prescribed exercise for both fitness and health goals.

Breaking up prolonged sitting with short frequent bouts of walking reduces blood sugar levels and may help weight management by causing short-term energy deficits

September 22, 2016

Engaging in prolonged uninterrupted bouts of sitting has recently been identified as a risk factor for cardiometabolic diseases including heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.
