A Case of Rhabdomyolysis after High Intensity Resistance Training

Research Paper Title Rhabdomyolysis after High Intensity Resistance Training. Background Rhabdomyolysis, which is a characteristic occurrence associated with muscle cell necrosis, develops due to various causes. The researchers report a rare case of a patient with rhabdomyolysis after high intensity resistance training, in which markedly elevated levels of serum creatine kinase (CK) and urine myoglobin… Read More

Could Measurement of Circulating CF n-DNA be a Sensitive Tool for Monitoring Acute Exercise Effects in the Human Body?

Research Paper Title Repeated bouts of exhaustive exercise increase circulating cell free nuclear and mitochondrial DNA without development of tolerance in healthy men. Objective Acute single strenuous exercise increases circulating cell free DNA (cf DNA). The researchers tested whether three repeated bouts of exhaustive exercise induced the cf DNA response without development of tolerance in… Read More

The Rejuvenating Powers of High-Intensity Interval Training

“HIIT it! We’re often told that exercise is the best medicine, and it now seems that regular high intensity interval training (HIIT), in particular, is great for reversing the declining ability of our cells to generate energy. HIIT involves short bursts of very intense activity, interspersed with recovery periods of lower-intensity exercise. Sreekumaran Nair at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and his colleagues assigned… Read More
