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

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

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

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

Mitral annular myocardial velocity assessment of segmental left ventricular diastolic function after prolonged exercise in humans
We assessed segmental and global left ventricular (LV) diastolic function via tissue‐Doppler imaging (TDI) as well as Doppler flow variables before and after a marathon race to extend our knowledgeExpand

A prospective randomised longitudinal MRI study of left ventricular adaptation to endurance and resistance exercise training in humans
Non‐Technical Summary  This is the first study, to our knowledge, to use cardiac MRI before and after intensive and closely supervised resistance and endurance exercise training in humans. There is aExpand

Is the magnitude of acute post-exercise hypotension mediated by exercise intensity or total work done?
AbstractThe purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of exercise intensity on the magnitude of acute post-exercise hypotension while controlling for total work done over the exerciseExpand

The influence of recovery posture on post-exercise hypotension in normotensive men.
PURPOSE Postexercise hypotension may be the result of an impaired vasoconstrictor response. This hypothesis was investigated by examining the central and peripheral hemodynamic responses duringExpand

Changes in vascular and cardiac function after prolonged strenuous exercise in humans.
Prolonged exercise has been shown to result in an acute depression in cardiac function. However, little is known about the effect of this type of exercise on vascular function. Therefore, the purposeExpand
