Elevation in cerebral blood flow velocity with aerobic fitness throughout healthy human ageing
Regular aerobic‐endurance exercise is associated with higher MCAv in men aged 18–79 years, and the persistence of this finding in older endurance‐trained men may help explain why there is a lower risk of cerebrovascular disease in this population.
Allometric modeling does not determine a dimensionless power function ratio for maximal muscular function.
It is concluded that allometric scaling should be applied only when all underlying model assumptions have been rigorously evaluated and that second-order polynomials provided the best fit.
The effect of cryotherapy on nerve conduction velocity, pain threshold and pain tolerance
The data suggest that cryotherapy can increase PTH and PTO at the ankle and this was associated with a significant decrease in NCV, which may be a mechanism by which cryotherapy achieves its clinical goals.

Ironman and half-Ironman competition resulted in reversible abnormalities in resting left ventricular diastolic and systolic function, suggesting myocardial damage may be, in part, responsible for cardiac dysfunction.

It is likely that factors other than myocardial damage or strong vagal reactivation contributed to postexercise decreases in LV function after an ultramarathon and the mechanisms behind such consequences remain unknown.

Compared methods of using skinfold data and an equation for predicting body fat values in professional soccer players to derive an equation incorporating anterior thigh, abdominal, triceps and medial calf sites, demonstrating the lowest bias and highest relationship and agreement with DXA.
Does the Human Heart Fatigue Subsequent to Prolonged Exercise?
There are large gaps in knowledge of what specific factors related to exercise might facilitate functional changes in EICF, and it is important that future research utilises reliable and valid biochemical techniques to address these aetiological factors.
A prospective randomised longitudinal MRI study of left ventricular adaptation to endurance and resistance exercise training in humans
This is the first study, to the authors' knowledge, to use cardiac MRI before and after intensive and closely supervised resistance and endurance exercise training in humans, and the findings suggest that concept of ‘concentric’ and ‘eccentric’ adaptation of the heart may need to be reconsidered.
Changes in vascular and cardiac function after prolonged strenuous exercise in humans.
Data from the present study suggest a transient depression in cardiac and leg vascular function following prolonged intensive exercise.

The acute post-exercise reduction in BP was clinically similar following high intensity short duration exercise and moderate intensity longer duration exercise that was matched for total work done.
