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… Expand


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. Expand
Effects of the menstrual cycle phase on the blood lactate responses andexercise performance in active women
The present study examined the effects of menstrual cycle phase on the blood lactate responses and exercise performance in university active women. Fourteen active eumenorrheic women (age 21 ± 1.8Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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
Urinary LH was accurate in predicting ovulation with ultrasonography as the standard for detection, but time varied widely; the nadir of BBT predicted ovulation poorly, and the BBT chart was less accurate for confirming ovulation, whereas a single serum progesterone assessment in midluteal phase seemed as effective as repeated serum progestersone measures.

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.
