Utilizing heavy loads is important when designing resistance training programs for older adults. Although eccentric (i.e. lengthening under tension) contractions were not necessary to build strength in older adults, they were more effective than traditional resistance training
Over the short term (3 months), the COVID-19 pandemic had no impact on training or dietary intake in elite paracyclists, demonstrating the resilience of this group
The Get Active Questionnaire for Pregnancy (GAQ-P) and associated Health Care Provider Consultation Form for Physical Activity during Pregnancy have been designed to identify individuals who may not benefit from prenatal exercise, while reducing barriers to physical activity for the majority of pregnant individuals
Isolated bouts of brief intense exercise over the course of the day – known as “sprint exercise snacks” – can improve cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) in sedentary young adults
During everyday life, humans experience fluctuations in temperature which can influence muscle performance. For example, cooling the muscle has been shown to slow muscle contractile speed and decrease strength
Public health officials have suggested the use of masks to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Our results suggest wearing a mask during exercise will have no impact on performance
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.
