Enhanced corticospinal excitability and volitional drive in response to shortening and lengthening strength training and changes following detraining
(Frontiers Media, 2017)
There is a limited understanding of the neurological adaptations responsible for changes in strength following shortening and lengthening resistance training and subsequent detraining. The aim of the study was to investigate ...
A pilot study investigating reactive oxygen species production in capillary blood after a marathon and the influence of an antioxidant-rich beetroot juice
(Canadian Science Publishing, 2018)
We report that reactive oxygen species (ROS), as measured in capillary blood taken from the finger-tip, increased after a marathon (+128% P < 0.01; effect size = 1.17), indicating that this collection method might be useful ...
Task-specific strength increases after lower-limb compound resistance training occurred in the absence of corticospinal changes in vastus lateralis
Neural adaptations subserving strength increases have been shown to be task-specific, but responses and adaptation to lower-limb compound exercises such as the squat are commonly assessed in a single-limb isometric task. ...
Exercise-induced muscle damage: what is it, what causes it and what are the nutritional solutions?
(Taylor & Francis, 2019)
Exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD) is characterized by symptoms that present both immediately and for up to 14 days after the initial exercise bout. The main consequence of EIMD for the athlete is the loss of skeletal ...
Cryotherapy reinvented: application of phase change material for recovery in elite soccer
(Human kinetics, 2018)
Purpose: To examine whether donning lower-body garments fitted with cooled phase change material (PCM) would enhance recovery after a soccer match. Methods: In a randomized, crossover design, 11 elite soccer players from ...
