Myosin heavy chain (MHC) isoform expression changes with physical training. This may be one of the mechanisms for muscular adaptation to exercise. We aimed to investigate the effects of different strength-training protocols on MHC isoform expression, bearing in mind that alpha- MHC(slow) (newly identified MHC isoform) mRNA may be upregulated in response to(More)
The process of warming up prepares athletes for subsequent stress and increases their level of performance. Functional exercises are often included in warm-up programs for power sports, although a positive effect of functional exercises has not been confirmed. The aim of this study was to measure a possible effect of functional exercises on sprint(More)
BACKGROUND A sensation of abdominal swelling (bloating) and actual increase in girth (distension) are troublesome features of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which is more common in patients with constipation, especially those with delayed transit. AIM To establish whether a fermented dairy product containing Bifidobacterium lactis DN-173 010 reduces(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the effects of single-set and multiple-set strength training in women. Twenty-seven women (aged 20-40 years) with basic experience in strength training were randomly allocated to either a single-set group (n = 9), a 3-set group (n = 9), or a nontraining control group (n = 9). Both training groups underwent a whole-body(More)
To examine the effects of strength training with superimposed vibrations ten subjects trained over a period of six weeks (three sessions per week) one leg with back squats and superimposed vibrations and the other leg with traditional squats. In each training session participants performed 4 sets with 8-12 repetitions. Before and after the training period(More)

BACKGROUND There is abundant literature on the treatment of Achilles tendon rupture; however data on sports and recreational activities after this injury is scarce. PATIENTS AND METHODS 71 patients were assessed in a prospective cross-sectional study after an average of 3 years after Achilles tendon rupture. 44 patients were treated non-operatively, using(More)
