Evidence for complex system integration and dynamic neural regulation of skeletal muscle recruitment during exercise in humans
A model is proposed in which the development of physical exhaustion is a relative rather than an absolute event and the sensation of fatigue is the sensory representation of the underlying neuralExpand

Three independent biological mechanisms cause exercise-associated hyponatremia: evidence from 2,135 weighed competitive athletic performances.
To evaluate the role of fluid and Na+ balance in the development of exercise-associated hyponatremia (EAH), changes in serum Na+ concentrations ([Na+]) and in body weight were analyzed in 2,135Expand

From catastrophe to complexity: a novel model of integrative central neural regulation of effort and fatigue during exercise in humans: summary and conclusions
It is hypothesised that physical activity is controlled by a central governor in the brain and that the human body functions as a complex system during exercise. Using feed forward control inExpand

Peak treadmill running velocity during the VO2 max test predicts running performance.
Twenty specialist marathon runners and 23 specialist ultra-marathon runners underwent maximal exercise testing to determine the relative value of maximum oxygen consumption (VO2max), peak treadmillExpand

The rate of heat storage mediates an anticipatory reduction in exercise intensity during cycling at a fixed rating of perceived exertion
The aim of the present study was to examine the regulation of exercise intensity in hot environments when exercise is performed at a predetermined, fixed subjective rating of perceived exertionExpand

Peak power output predicts maximal oxygen uptake and performance time in trained cyclists
SummaryThe purposes of this study were firstly to determine the relationship between the peak power output (Wpeak) and maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) attained during a laboratory cycling test toExpand

Skeletal muscle buffering capacity and endurance performance after high-intensity interval training by well-trained cyclists
Abstract Skeletal muscle buffering capacity (βm), enzyme activities and exercise performance were measured before and after 4 weeks of high-intensity, sub maximal␣interval training (HIT) undertakenExpand

Influence of moderate dehydration on soccer performance: physiological responses to 45 min of outdoor match-play and the immediate subsequent performance of sport-specific and mental concentration
Objective: To determine whether moderate water loss (∼1.5–2% of body mass (BM)) represents a significant impairment to soccer match-play and the related fitness variables. Methods: 11 moderatelyExpand

Complex systems model of fatigue: integrative homoeostatic control of peripheral physiological systems during exercise in humans
Fatigue is hypothesised as being the result of the complex interaction of multiple peripheral physiological systems and the brain. In this new model, all changes in peripheral physiological systemsExpand
