Position Statement: The position of The Society regarding caffeine supplementation and sport performance is summarized by the following seven points: 1.) Caffeine is effective for enhancing sport performance in trained athletes when consumed in low-to-moderate dosages (~3-6 mg/kg) and overall does not result in further enhancement in performance when(More)
BACKGROUND Ageing is associated with a significant reduction in skeletal muscle carnosine which has been linked with a reduction in the buffering capacity of muscle and in theory, may increase the rate of fatigue during exercise. Supplementing beta-alanine has been shown to significantly increase skeletal muscle carnosine. The purpose of this study,(More)
Although exercise is an established component in the management of many chronic diseases associated with aging, activity levels tend to progressively decline with increasing age. Given the growing proportion of older adults, these suboptimal levels of physical activity represent an increasing public health problem. The predicators of adherence elucidated in(More)
Low bone mineral density (BMD) has been determined as an independent factor of osteoporosis. The purpose of this study was to assess physical activity's effect on BMD in college-aged women. Bone density measurements were obtained. A survey was administered to assess past and recent physical activity levels. Logistic regression revealed high school sports(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of different durations of static stretching on dynamic balance. Women (N = 28) were tested before and after 2 stretching interventions and a control condition on 3 separate days, at least 48 hours apart. The stretching sessions involved a cycle ergometer warm-up at 70 rpm and 70 W followed by passive(More)
The overarching aim of this study was to compare volume-equated high-repetition daily undulating periodization (DUPHR) versus a low-repetition daily undulating periodization (DUPLR) program for muscle performance. Sixteen college-aged (23 ± 3 years) resistance-trained males were counterbalanced into 2 groups: (i) DUPHR (n = 8), with a weekly training order(More)
CGS-13080 is a new potent selective inhibitor of thromboxane synthetase. This study reports the results of a safety and efficacy study of single oral doses in normal healthy volunteers. The compound was well tolerated by all subjects without evidence of any adverse reactions. Serum thromboxane B2 levels (the stable metabolic product of thromboxane A2) were(More)
