What is the central question of this study? Intermittent hyperbaric exposure (1.3 ATA with 20.9% O ) has been shown to facilitate endurance capacity by facilitating oxidative and glycolytic capacities in skeletal muscle. It currently remains unclear whether this strategy enhances endurance performance in well-trained individuals. What is the main finding and its importance? Hyperbaric exposure (1.3 ATA with 20.9% O ) with endurance training enhanced oxidative and glycolytic capacities and protein levels of mitochondrial transcription factor A, dynamin-related protein-1, and heat shock protein 70. Hyperbaric exposure with sprint interval training increased the proportion of type I muscle fibres and promoted capillary growth and muscle fibre hypertrophy. These results may lead to a new strategy for enhancing exercise capacity in well-trained mice.

Recently a novel, time-saving respiratory muscle sprint-interval training (RMSIT) was developed. To test the extent to which RMSIT improves respiratory muscle performance compared to a conventional re...
Metabolic perturbation and [Formula: see text] on-kinetics are potential modifiers of fatigue and vary in importance depending on the exercise task. Thus, performance fatigability during high-intensit...
Models of self-paced endurance performance suggest that accurate knowledge of the exercise end-point influences pace-related decision-making. No studies have examined the effects of anticipated task d...
Hyperbaric exposure mimics air-breathing scuba diving, which is reaching enormous popularity around the world. The diver's body is subjected to a broad range of divergent effects exerted by, e.g.: an ...
Exercise-induced disturbance of acid-base balance and accumulation of extracellular potassium (K) are suggested to elicit fatigue. Exercise under hypoxic conditions may augment exercise-induced altera...
Hyperbaric oxygen has previously been tested as a possible means for pre-conditioning to enhance exercise performance. This study is designed to examine the effects of exercising in a hype...
Previous evidence showed hyperbaric oxygen can enhance aerobic and anaerobic performance during the exposure. The effect of continuous exposure of hyperbaric oxygen on performance was neve...
The investigators expect to find that different intensity and altitude exposure levels will show what kind of intermittent exposure protocol is more beneficial to athletes and healthy indi...
Research hypothesis - Prolonged hyperbaric exposure will affect the central nervous system - Prolonged hyperbaric exposure will induce inflammatory changes - Prolonged hy...
Soccer is an intermittent sport in which the aerobic and anaerobic capacity of the players are both very important. Elite football players perform an average of 150-250 short and intense m...
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
A performance test based on forced MOTOR ACTIVITY on a rotating rod, usually by a rodent. Parameters include the riding time (seconds) or endurance. Test is used to evaluate balance and coordination of the subjects, particular in experimental animal models for neurological disorders and drug effects.
A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.
The therapeutic intermittent administration of oxygen in a chamber at greater than sea-level atmospheric pressures (three atmospheres). It is considered effective treatment for air and gas embolisms, smoke inhalation, acute carbon monoxide poisoning, caisson disease, clostridial gangrene, etc. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992). The list of treatment modalities includes stroke.
A schedule prescribing when the subject is to be reinforced or rewarded in terms of temporal interval in psychological experiments. The schedule may be continuous or intermittent.

Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
