Resistance and aerobic training in older men: effects on VO2peak and the capillary supply to skeletal muscle.
TLDR
The finding of a significant correlation between the change in capillary supply and VO2peak and the possibility that similar mechanisms may be involved in the increase of VO2 peak after high-intensity RT and AT in the older population is suggested. Expand
The relationship between sedentary activities and physical inactivity among adolescents: results from the Canadian Community Health Survey.
TLDR
There is a complex inter-relationship between sedentary behaviors and physical inactivity, highlighting the need for targeted interventions addressing patterns of sedentary behavior engagement and reducing time spent on television viewing may be one plausible strategy within such interventions in reducing physical inactive youth. Expand
Blood pressure responses to acute and chronic exercise are related in prehypertension.
TLDR
The magnitude of the acute BP-lowering with exercise may predict the extent of BP lowering after chronic training interventions in prehypertensive individuals. Expand
Financial incentives for exercise adherence in adults: systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
The effect estimate from the meta-analysis suggests that financial incentives increase exercise session attendance for interventions up to 6 months in duration, and assured, or "sure thing," incentives and objective behavioral assessment in particular appear to moderate incentive effectiveness. Expand
Relationship of vigorous physical activity to psychologic distress among adolescents.
TLDR
Virtually vigorous physical activity was related significantly to problems with social functioning but not to depression or anxiety, and multiple regression analysis revealed a differential relationship between physical activity and dimensions of the General Health Questionnaire-12. Expand
Aerobic and resistance training in coronary disease: single versus multiple sets.
TLDR
The data support the use of multiple set RT for patients desiring an increased RT stimulus which may further augment parameters that affect VO2peak, VAT, lower body endurance, and muscle mass in a cardiac population. Expand
Short-term high-intensity interval and continuous moderate-intensity training improve maximal aerobic power and diastolic filling during exercise
TLDR
Short-term HIT and CMT elicit rapid improvements in V˙O2max and LV filling without global changes in cardiac performance at rest, as well as numerous Doppler and speckle tracking indices of diastolic function that were related to changes in PV. Expand
A provincial study of opportunities for school-based physical activity in secondary schools.
TLDR
Although provision of physical activity opportunities in Ontario appears satisfactory, actual engagement by students is low and strategies to increase student participation in PE, intramural programs, and inter-school sports programs need further consideration. Expand
Left ventricular adaptations following short-term endurance training.
TLDR
The data indicate that short-term training elicits rapid adaptation to the LV functional response exercise, with increases in SV being secondary to a Frank-Starling effect with minor changes in contractile performance. Expand
Interval and continuous exercise elicit equivalent postexercise hypotension in prehypertensive men, despite differences in regulation.
TLDR
The results from the current study indicate that older prehypertensive adults experience similar PEH following equicaloric bouts of IE and SS exercise despite larger alterations in HRV and BRS elicited by IE. Expand
