What are the Effects of Load Carriage on Physiological Determinants in Adventure Racers?

Research Paper Title Effects of load carriage on physiological determinants in adventure racers. Background Adventure racing athletes need run carrying loads during the race. A better understanding of how different loads influence physiological determinants in adventure racers could provide useful insights to gauge training interventions to improve running performance. Methods The researchers compare the maximum… Read More

What is the VO2 Decrease before Exhaustion during Constant Load Exercise?

Research Paper Title VO2 decrease Before Exhaustion During Constant Load Exercise. Role of Respiratory Muscles. Background The aim of this study was to analyse the VO2 kinetic during a constant load exercise, to check the existence of a VO2 decrease at the end of this kind of exercise and finally to study the respiratory muscles… Read More

Is a Submaximal 6-min Exercise Test Protocol to Assess HRC of Running Considered Valid to estimate vVO2max of Recreational Runners for both Treadmills & Outdoor Tracks?

Research Paper Title Heart rate cost of running in track estimates velocity associated with maximal oxygen uptake. Background Running velocity associated with VO2max (vVO2max) is a parameter widely used for exercise prescription and is related to endurance performance. However, the vVO2max determination usually requires a maximal effort test and equipped laboratory for expired gas analysis,… Read More

Linking Muscle Activity & Increased Oxygen Cost during Moderate Exercise following Heavy Exercise

Research Paper Title Prior heavy exercise increases oxygen cost during moderate exercise without associated change in surface EMG. Background The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that prior heavy exercise results in a higher oxygen cost during a subsequent bout of moderate exercise due to changes in muscle activity. Methods Eight male subjects (25… Read More

What is the Copenhagen Method?

Another more recent interval training method follows the research of Gunnarsson and Bangsbo published in 2012, called the 10-20-30 Training Concept, more commonly known as the Copenhagen Method (Gunnarsson & Bangsbo, 2012). In this study, 18 moderately trained runners (6 females and 12 males) were divided into a high-intensity training (10-20-30) group and a control… Read More

The Effects of Basic Training on British Army Regular & Reserve Recruits

Research Paper Title Effects of basic training in the British Army on regular and reserve army personnel. Background The aim of this study was to compare changes in aerobic fitness and body composition in response to British Army (regular) and Territorial Army (reserve) basic training. Methods Eleven regular recruits, 14 reserve recruits, and 20 controls… Read More

Linking Water Temperature & Exercise Performance

Research Paper Title The Effects of Water Temperature on Physiological Responses and Exercise Performance during Immersed Incremental Exercise. Introduction Aquatic exercise such as swimming is performed in the water of 18 to 34 °C because of the differences in ambient environmental conditions. Heat conductivity of water is greater than that of air, therefore water temperature… Read More
