Resistance exercise can result in localized damage to muscle tissue. This damage may be observed in sarcolemma, basal lamina, as well as, in the contractile elements and the cytoskeleton. Usually the damage is accompanied by release of enzymes such as creatine kinase (CK) and lactate dehydrogenase, myoglobin and other proteins into the blood. Serum CK has(More)
To examine the effects of different rest intervals between sets on serum creatine kinase (CK) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) activity, 10 men (age = 25.6 ± 2.2 years, height = 173.1 ± 7.1 cm, and body mass = 75.9 ± 10.0 kg) participated in a randomized within-subject design that involved 4 resistance exercise sessions. Each session consisted of 4 sets of(More)
The genetic variability among 13 isolates of Olive mild mosaic virus (OMMV) and of 11 isolates of Tobacco necrosis virus D (TNV-D) recovered from Olea europaea L. samples from various sites in Portugal, was assessed through the analysis of the coat protein (CP) gene sequences. This gene was amplified through reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction(More)
The goal of this paper was to investigate the amplitude and sub-100 Hz frequency content of surface electromyography (EMG) signals obtained from agonist, antagonist and synergist muscles during a heel-raise task sustained to failure. Twenty-two healthy adults, 14 men and 8 women participated in the study. Surface EMG data from the raising and lowering(More)
This study examined creatine kinase (CK) activity after resistance exercise sessions in subjects classified as high (HiR), medium (MeR), or low responders (LoR). Two resistance exercise sessions were performed that each involved 4 sets of the biceps curl at 85% of a 1 repetition maximum (1RM) and either 1- or 3-minute rest intervals between sets. High(More)

The senior population has increasing recently and demanding greater attention due to of falling related to the reduction of muscle strength. The early falling risk identification has been prized by many countries and allows the implementation of preventive actions, such as the participation of physical activities, which have been considered a promising way(More)
Monitoring and evaluating distributed systems at runtime is a difficult effort. Network traffic analysis may be used to analyse distributed systems, but the capacity to analyse large amount of traffic is a challenge. This work proposes the use of Map Reduce for deeply inspecting distributed systems network traffic, evaluating the effectiveness and the(More)
—Testing, monitoring and evaluation of distributed systems at runtime is a difficult effort, due the dynamicity of the environment, the large amount of data exchanged between the nodes and the difficulty of reproduce an error for debugging. Application traffic analysis is a method to evaluate distributed systems, but the ability to analyze large amount of(More)
Resistance exercise often leads to exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD). Muscle oedema, muscle soreness, increase in serum creatine kinase (CK) activity, restricted range of motion and strength loss are markers of EIMD. It is well documented that symptoms of EIMD are reduced following a repeated bout of similar exercise, this occurrence has been referred(More)
PURPOSE The authors tested different loading schemes for the number of repetitions completed during multiple sets of resistance exercise. METHODS Twenty-four resistance-trained men (age 24.0 ± 4.5 y, body mass 78.3 ±10.2 kg, height 177 ± 7 cm) were tested over a 5-wk period. During week 1 a 10-repetition maximum (10RM) in the leg press was determined.(More)
