Exercise effects on bone mass in postmenopausal women are site‐specific and load‐dependent
The results support the notion of a site‐specific response of bone to maximal loading from resistance exercise in that although the trochanter and intertrochanteric bone density was elevated by the resistance exercises undertaken, there was no effect on the femoral neck value. Expand

An in-depth knowledge of periodisation of training theory may be necessary to promote optimal performance improvements, prevent overtraining, and develop a system for incorporating a screening system into the training programme. Expand

  • 1 November 1991
Aerobic power, anaerobic power and capacity, muscular strength, resistance to muscular fatigue, and measures of body size were significantly greater in more successful kayakists, and all of the parameters measured correlated significantly with performance time over at least one of the four race distances.

Resistance Training over 2 Years Increases Bone Mass in Calcium‐Replete Postmenopausal Women
The effectiveness of a progressive strength program in increasing bone density at the clinically important hip site is shown and a strength program could be recommended as an adjunct lifestyle approach to osteoporosis treatment or used in combination with other therapies. Expand
Effects of a short-term circuit weight training program on glycaemic control in NIDDM.
Pooled time-series analysis revealed an overall decrease in self-monitored glucose levels with CWT compared to controls, and strength for all exercises improved significantly after CWT, suggesting short-term CWT may provide a practical exercise alternative in the lifestyle management of this condition.

Randomised controlled trial of graded exercise in chronic fatigue syndrome
Whether 12 weeks of graded exercise with pacing would improve specific physiological, psychological and cognitive functions in people with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is investigated. Expand
Exercise Improves Early Functional Recovery After Total Hip Arthroplasty
The current study showed that customized perioperative exercise programs are well tolerated by patients with end-stage hip arthritis, and are effective in improving early recovery of physical function after total hip arthroplasty. Expand

Biological responses to overload training in endurance sports
An outstanding factor to emerge from this study was the difficulty associated with an objective diagnosis of overtraining and this is a possible reason why there have been new accounts of over training research in the literature. Expand
The Independent and Combined Effects of Aerobic Exercise and Dietary Fish Intake on Serum Lipids and Glycemic Control in NIDDM: A randomized controlled study
A reduced fat diet incorporating one daily fish meal reduces serum triglycerides and increases HDL2 cholesterol in dyslipidemic NIDDM patients, and Associated deterioration in glycemic control can be prevented by a concomitant program of moderate exercise. Expand
