This paper reports temporal changes in physiological measurements of exercise performance in a young man transitioning from alpine skiing until he became a world junior champion time-trial cyclist after only 3 years of bike specific training. At the time he became world champion he also achieved among the highest reported maximal oxygen uptake (VO) value - 96.7 mL·min·kg, or 7397 mL·min in absolute terms at 76.5 kg, which had increased by 29.6% from 74.6 mL·min·kg pre bike specific training. After 15 months with almost no structured exercise training, VO returned to 77.0 mL·min·kg and was similar to the value reported prior to specific bike training, although in absolute term (6205 mL·min) still being 11.3% higher. Part of the explanation for his athletic achievements is likely also related to the up to 20.9% improvement in Power@4 mmol·L (W). Although genetic profiles of endurance athletes have not generated data suggesting a shared genetic signature associated with elite endurance performance, this case study highlights the importance of intrinsic biological factors in elite endurance performance.

This study tested whether CHO intake during a 2-h rest between exercise bouts improved performance in the subsequent bout.
Targeting metabolic determinants of exercise performance with pharmacological agents that would mimic/potentiate the effects of exercise represents an attractive clinical alternative to counterbalance...
Mitochondrial DNA encodes some proteins of the oxidative phosphorylation enzymatic complex, playing an important role in aerobic ATP production; therefore, it can contribute to the ability to respond ...
The maximum rate of aerobic exercise metabolism (VOmax) is a trait informative from both medical and evolutionary perspective, and both the physiological mechanisms limiting its level and its evolutio...
Land-based recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) have been used to rear salmon from smolt to market-sized adults, but high operating costs have limited their wide spread adoption. One clear advantag...
Despite a large and growing body of knowledge concerning the diagnosis of temporal arteritis, this potentially crippling disease still requires pathological diagnosis in practically every ...
Compare a dietary supplement (PRJ-205) and placebo during 1 or 4 days on aerobic exercise performance, oxidative stress and muscle damage. The hypothesis is that supplementation with PRJ-...
Background: Patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) have a higher prevalence of cardiovascular diseases compared to the healthy population. Aerobic exercise training is one of the recommen...
The primary objective is to identify which patients undergoing a traditional pterional approach with 2 different surgical techniques for TMS (Temporal Muscle Suspension) will develop TH (T...

Studies designed to examine associations, commonly, hypothesized causal relations. They are usually concerned with identifying or measuring the effects of risk factors or exposures. The common types of analytic study are CASE-CONTROL STUDIES; COHORT STUDIES; and CROSS-SECTIONAL STUDIES.
A neurosurgical procedure that removes the anterior TEMPORAL LOBE including the medial temporal structures of CEREBRAL CORTEX; AMYGDALA; HIPPOCAMPUS; and the adjacent PARAHIPPOCAMPAL GYRUS. This procedure is generally used for the treatment of intractable temporal epilepsy (EPILEPSY, TEMPORAL LOBE).
