Cardiovascular system adaptability to physical exercise during follicular phase of endometrial cycle in female trained athletes and nonathletes

  title={Cardiovascular system adaptability to physical exercise during follicular phase of endometrial cycle in female trained athletes and nonathletes},
  author={Amrith Pakkala},
Background: The physiological role of oestrogen on the cardiovascular system is well studied during phases of the endometrial cycle. There is very high rise in both progesterone around 37% and oestradiol around 13.5%, in the previous studies it has been observed there FSH and LH plasma levels do not change in trained exercising females. Hence this study was aimed to see the restrictions of the cardiovascular system adaptability to exercise in follicular phase of endometrial cycle in peri…

Hormonal influence on the adaptability of the pulmonary system to exercise in proliferative phase of menstrual cycle in a group of perimenopausal women

This finding supports the hypothesis that the respiratory system is not normally the most limiting factor in the delivery of oxygen even under the predominant influence of estrogen in proliferative phase which is further accentuated by exercise.

Effects of the menstrual cycle on exercise performance.

It is suggested that regularly menstruating female athletes, competing in strength-specific sports and intense anaerobic/aerobic sports, do not need to adjust for menstrual cycle phase to maximise performance and the small scope of the current research and its methodological limitations warrant further investigation.

Ovarian hormonal responses to exercise.

It is concluded that exercise is a physiological stimulus to elevations in plasma estradiol, progesterone, and FSH, but not LH, and the elevations are more marked in the luteal phase for the steroids and in the follicular phase for FSH.

Effects of exercise on the serum concentrations of FSH, LH, progesterone, and estradiol

Heavy exercise in untrained subjects provokes significant increments in ovarian hormones, whereas no such increments are observed in trained subjects exercising at the same absolute workload.

Effects of follicular versus luteal phase-based strength training in young women

It is recommended that eumenorrheic females without oral contraception should base the periodization of their strength training on their individual MC, as follicular phase-based strength training showed a higher gain in muscle strength and muscle diameter than LT.

Respiratory function dynamics in individuals with increased motor activity during standard exercise testing.

There exist no norms for a comprehensive evaluation of the Lithuanian persons' physical capacity and breathing system and metabolic function capacity including residents going in for sports, and it is not clear whether one may rely upon the nomograms drawn up by foreign authors because they may not be applicable to Lithuanian athletes.

Reliability of Ovulation Tests in Infertile Women

Mechanical constraints on exercise hyperpnea in endurance athletes.

It is concluded that during maximal exercise, highly trained individuals often reach the mechanical limits of the lung and respiratory muscle for producing alveolar ventilation, which is achieved at a considerable metabolic cost but with a mechanically optimal pattern of breathing and respiratory Muscle recruitment and without sacrifice of a significantAlveolar hyperventilation.

Adaptations and limitations in the pulmonary system during exercise.

The case of the elderly athlete who remains capable of achieving high maximum pulmonary blood flows and ventilatory requirements and whose lung undergoes a normal aging process underscores the importance of deficits on the capacity end of this continuum of cost versus capacity in the pulmonary system.

Ganong's Review of Medical Physiology

This chapter discusses the regulation of endocrine functions of the pituitary gland, which governs the development & function of the female reproductive system and the male reproductive system.
