Effleurage massage, muscle blood flow and long-term post-exercise strength recovery.
Manual massage is commonly assumed to enhance long term muscle recovery from intense exercise, partly due to its ability to speed healing via enhanced muscle blood flow. We tested these assumptionsExpand

Estrogen effect on post-exercise skeletal muscle neutrophil infiltration and calpain activity.
We hypothesized that estrogen administration would attenuate skeletal muscle neutrophil infiltration, indices of muscle membrane disruption, and muscle calpain activity shortly after the terminationExpand

Oestrogen receptors mediate oestrogen‐induced increases in post‐exercise rat skeletal muscle satellite cells
Aim:  Our laboratory recently demonstrated that increases in post‐exercise muscle satellite cell numbers are augmented by oestrogen. We investigated whether muscle oestrogen receptors (ORs) mediateExpand

Information suggests that there may be gender-based differences in skeletal muscle responses to damaging exercise. Evidence demonstrates that estrogen has strong antioxidant properties and may be anExpand

Estrogen influences satellite cell activation and proliferation following downhill running in rats.
To investigate the influence of estrogen on postexercise muscle repair processes, we examined the effects of estrogen supplementation (0.25-mg pellet) on numbers of myofibers positive for markers ofExpand

The Influence of Estrogen on Skeletal Muscle
As women enter menopause, the concentration of estrogen and other female hormones declines. This hormonal decrease has been associated with a number of negative outcomes, including a greaterExpand

Contraction-induced muscle damage is unaffected by vitamin E supplementation.
PURPOSE Vitamin E supplementation may confer a protective effect against eccentrically biased exercise-induced muscle damage through stabilization of the cell membrane and possibly via inhibition ofExpand

Exercise in pregnancy and the postpartum period.
OBJECTIVE To design Canadian guidelines advising obstetric care providers of the maternal, fetal, and neonatal implications of aerobic and strength-conditioning exercises in pregnancy. OUTCOMESExpand

Lack of antioxidant adaptation to short-term aerobic training in human muscle.
The effects of 8 wk of 35 min of aerobic cycle training (3 times/wk) on indexes of male and female human vastus lateralis muscle antioxidant status were investigated. Training resulted in significantExpand
