The menstrual cycle and exercise: performance, muscle glycogen, and substrate responses.
It is suggested that exercise performance and muscle glycogen content are enhanced during the LP of the menstrual cycle, which implies athletic performance may be affected by the phases of the menstruation cycle. Expand
Stress and the neuroendocrine system: the role of exercise as a stressor and modifier of stress

  • Expert review of endocrinology & metabolism
  • 1 November 2006
The specific intent of the review is to present an overview of stress endocrinology, the conceptual models associated with this area of study, and a discourse on the dual role of exercise as both a stressor and a modifier of stress within the neuroendocrine system. Expand
Training intensity influences leptin and thyroid hormones in highly trained rowers.
A depression of L and HTA is associated with training intensity, independent of BMI or body fat, in highly trained rowers. Expand
Interactions of Metabolic Hormones, Adipose Tissue and Exercise
Exercise is one of the major links between the hormonal modulators of energy intake and output and it appears that the sympathetic nervous system and the catecholamines are key components facilitating the lipolytic activity during exercise. Expand
Relationship between stress hormones and testosterone with prolonged endurance exercise
The present findings give credence to the hypothesis suggesting a linkage between the low resting testosterone found in endurance-trained runners and stress hormones, with respect to cortisol. Expand
Influence of Estrogen on Markers of Muscle Tissue Damage Following Eccentric Exercise
It is suggested that elevated estrogen levels have a protective effect on muscle tissue following eccentric exercise, and this protective effect may be related to the antioxidant characteristics and membrane stability properties associated with estrogen and its derivatives. Expand
Effects of music on physiological and affective responses to graded treadmill exercise in trained and untrained runners.
The results suggest listening to fast, upbeat music during exercise may be beneficial for untrained runners but counterproductive for trained runners. Expand
Twenty-five years of research on the effects of exercise training in breast cancer survivors: A systematic review of the literature.
Overall, the benefits of exercise showed improvements in cardiorespiratory function, body composition, strength, and patient reported outcomes including fatigue, depression, and quality of life. Expand
Substrate responses to submaximal exercise in the midfollicular and midluteal phases of the menstrual cycle.
The phase of the menstrual cycle in eumenorrheic women does influence metabolic substrate usage during low- to moderate-intensity submaximal exercise, probably due to changes in the endogenous levels of the female sex hormones. Expand
