Abstract This paper provides a thumb-nail sketch of some of the key issues that have been instrumental in the development of the scientific study of exercise, and more particularly sports, physiology. Those who have had the pleasure of reading the American Physiological Society's publication Exercise Physiology in its “People and Ideas” series, will know the breadth and depth of the extant material in this field. In an attempt at some form of coherence, the present paper focuses on the concepts… Expand
Root of knowledge in exercise physiology
This article aims to give a personal view on the training that teachers must acquire in order to teach an organism to respond and adapt to exercise and training, respectively. It is believed that toExpand
Critical evaluation of oxygen-uptake assessment in swimming.
TLDR
A critical evaluation of the literature concerning oxygen-uptake (VO2) assessment in swimming is conducted, by describing the equipment and methods used and emphasizing the recent works conducted in ecological conditions. Expand
The athlete as model organism: The everyday practice of the science of human performance
Behind every champion athlete are scores of physiologists studying his or her performance. This is no new phenomenon. Since the late 19th century, physiologists have been bringing ‘well-trained’Expand
Youth Aerobic Fitness.
TLDR
Aerobic fitness is the most researched physiological variable in the history of pediatric exercise science, but its assessment, interpretation, and relationship with current and future health remain topics of lively debate as evidenced by this Special Issue of Pediatric Exercise Science. Expand
Firefighter's personal protective equipment and the chronotropic index
TLDR
It is shown that additional weight and encapsulating clothing leads to elevations in HR and oxygen uptake compared to a control condition, however, the CI remains unaffected. Expand
What limits [Vdot]O2max?A symposium held at the BASES Conference, 6 September 2010
TLDR
Two viewpoints concur that the limit to maximum oxygen uptake is somatic, and there are strong indications that at altitudes where oxygen availability is about half that at sea level, cerebral oxygenation is a limiting factor, and some recent experiments raise the possibility that it might be a substantial influence at sealevel also. Expand
Mechanical Efficiency Is Lower After Cycling Compared To After Running In Trained Triathletes
TLDR
The lower ME in running observed following cycling might be due to the combined effect of slightly higher blood lactate and RER values, and slightly lower external mechanical work performed. Expand
The Influence of Recovery and Training Phases on Body Composition, Peripheral Vascular Function and Immune System of Professional Soccer Players
TLDR
The data provided from this study suggest that the immune system is not able to function fully during periods of high physical stress, and recuperation should be carefully monitored in athletes who undergo intensive training over extended periods. Expand
The Relationship between CrossFit® Performance and Laboratory-Based Measurements of Fitness
TLDR
Results suggest, without any influence of CF familiarity or experience, that performance in these two CF workouts could be predicted by distinct laboratory-based measurements of fitness. Expand
Is V̇O2peak a Valid Estimation of V̇O2max in Swimmers with Physical Impairments?
TLDR
The validity of carbon dioxide production (), respiratory exchange ratio (RER), minute-ventilation ( and absolute and relative (%HRmax) heart rates—which were obtained in a time trial test and an incremental intermittent test performed by swimmers with physical impairments were assessed. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that the factors limiting maximal exercise performance might be better explained in terms of a failure of muscle contractility ("muscle power"), which may be independent of tissue oxygen deficiency. Expand
