Elevation in cerebral blood flow velocity with aerobic fitness throughout healthy human ageing
It is known that cerebral blood flow declines with age in sedentary adults, although previous studies have involved small sample sizes, making the exact estimate of decline imprecise and the effectsExpand
Allometric modeling does not determine a dimensionless power function ratio for maximal muscular function.
In the exercise sciences, simple allometry (y = axb) is rapidly becoming the method of choice for scaling physiological and human performance data for differences in body size. The purpose of thisExpand
The effect of cryotherapy on nerve conduction velocity, pain threshold and pain tolerance
Objectives: To determine the impact of the application of cryotherapy on nerve conduction velocity (NCV), pain threshold (PTH) and pain tolerance (PTO). Design: A within-subject experimental design;Expand
Cardiac fatigue following prolonged endurance exercise of differing distances.
PURPOSE Recent echocardiographic studies have reported cardiac dysfunction following ultra-endurance exercise in trained individuals. The duration of exercise required to elicit cardiac dysfunctionExpand
How well do skinfold equations predict percent body fat in elite soccer players?
The use of generic equations for estimating percent body fat from skinfold thicknesses can be criticised when applied to specific sports. The present aims were to compare existing methods of usingExpand
Cardiac troponin T release is stimulated by endurance exercise in healthy humans.
To the Editor: Post-exercise release of cardiac troponin (cTn)T and cTnI has been previously reported after prolonged bouts of exercise ([1][1]). However, this release has only been observed in aExpand
Exercise-induced cardiac troponin T release: a meta-analysis.
PURPOSE Cardiac troponin T (cTnT) is a highly specific marker of myocardial damage and used clinically in the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Release of cTnT has been demonstrated inExpand
Exercise-induced cardiac troponin elevation: evidence, mechanisms, and implications.
Regular physical exercise is recommended for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease. Although the high prevalence of physical inactivity remains a formidable public health issue,Expand
Does the Human Heart Fatigue Subsequent to Prolonged Exercise?
A reduction in left ventricular systolic and diastolic function subsequent to prolonged exercise in healthy humans, often called exercise-induced cardiac fatigue (EICF), has recently been reported inExpand
Cardiovascular consequences of completing a 160-km ultramarathon.
PURPOSES To comprehensively investigate the cardiovascular consequences of a 160-km ultramarathon using traditional echocardiography, speckle tracking imaging, cardiac biomarkers, and heart rateExpand
