Longer muscle lengths may offer a protective effect against preceding activity during explosive performance: The long and short of rate of force development

The optimization of explosive performance is important for enhancing athletic performance and for everyday life, such as recovering from a slip, fall or trip. Explosive performance can be quantified by rate of force development, which is how fast force is produced over a given period of time.


Heart rate variability responses to acute and repeated post-exercise sauna in trained cyclists

The use of heat exposure has been a growing area of scientific interest with performance and health benefits reported for adults. Athletes typically undertake exercise in the heat to develop adaptations that lead to improved performance.


Is Achieving Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines Important For Blood Vessel Health in Older Adults?

The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) recommends that older adults (≥65 years) accumulate 150 minutes of moderate- to vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity per week. Unfortunately, only ~12% of older adults in Canada achieve this recommendation and most spend ~70-80% of their waking hours engaged in sedentary behaviours like sitting


Modulation of motoneurone excitability during rhythmic motor outputs

Walking is a rhythmic motor output that can be performed with little to no conscious effort. Despite seeming like a fairly simple task, walking is actually quite complex with numerous muscles, limbs and joints that must be controlled with precise timing and coordination in order to produce this activity


Can strength training one limb preserve an opposite immobilized limb?

Evidence for the opposite limb (i.e. contralateral) effect of single limb training has existed for well over a century. This inter-limb transfer effect is commonly described as cross-education whereby single limb strength or skill training leads to an enhancement in the opposite untrained limb
