This study explored whether experimentally increasing blood lactate increased muscle protein synthesis, an important process that contributes to an increase in muscle mass.
Ingesting the ketone monoester supplement before exercise increased blood ketone levels in 30 minutes
High-intensity interval training may be an effective strategy to counteract age-related declines in memory.
Time to revisit medical ‘absolute’ and ‘relative’ contraindications.
Studies the effects of a cluster set configuration on measures of power in sprint athletes under the supervision of Dr. Phil Chilibeck.
This article offers insight into the safety and potential benefits of a multi-component (aerobic, resistance, balance, and flexibility) exercise program and may be helpful to practitioners working with pre-frail older females.
Aerobic exercise performance is often seen to be greatest in cooler environmental temperatures (approx. range 3°C to 20°C) and core body temperature is neutral, as this reduces stress placed on the body. Very little research has looked at aerobic exercise performance in a cold environment when core temperature is reduced.
The global market for dietary supplements is estimated to rise to 278 billion USD by 2024. Indeed, researchers and practitioners may be vulnerable to over-interpretation/application of findings in nutrition research. Therefore, it is important for nutrition researchers and practitioners to maintain scientific rigor in their study designs, methodologies, and interpretations.
Beetroot Juice is a commercially-available beverage that, when consumed, increases blood levels of nitrate and nitrite (and most likely nitric oxide) and in turn affects many physiological and metabolic processes.
The KT committee is introducing a new format for our Knowledge Translation articles with an emphasis on how current research articles may impact practitioners. Our first article is written by Katie Kowalski, PhD (Candidate) at Western University. Katie graduated as a doctor of Physical Therapy with honours from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and has many years experience working in a healthcare setting.
