The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of varying nitrate doses of beetroot juice supplementation on dynamic, multijoint resistance exercise performance in active, trained individuals. Performance will be assessed based on parameters including neuromuscular efficiency, anaerobic performance capability, oxygen consumption, plasma nitrate/nitrite levels, specific muscle tissue biomarkers including lactate, and anthropometric measurements of select muscle groups.

Both acute ingestion (1-3 h) and chronic supplementation (3-30 days) with dietary nitrate has been shown to increase nitric oxide activity and, in some studies, to improve exercise economy...
The Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), is one of the most common reasons for subfertility, oligomenorrhea and amenorrhea. With the occurrence of 6-20% of the general adult women population...
Determine the safety and efficacy of sub-maximal aerobic exercise during the subacute phase of recovery following sport-related concussion.
The purpose of this graduate student research study is to investigate the effects of nitrate from beetroot powder with additional anthocyanins from tart cherry on exercise performance in h...
This study will investigate the effect of standardized aerobic exercise (AE) compared to rest on clinical recovery from sport-related concussion (SRC) within the post-acute phase of injury...
Hydration is one of the most significant issues for combat sports as athletes often use water restriction for quick weight loss before competition. It appears that alkaline water can be an effective a...
The development of new strategies to attenuate exercise-induced muscle damage may be helpful for training regimens. The aim of this study was to determine whether a oral formulation of angiotensin Ang...
Cordyceps sinensis (=Ophiocordyceps sinensis) and Ganoderma lucidum are 2 medicinal mushrooms that have been suggested to have the potential to enhance exercise capacity. We used a commercial suppleme...
Sport and exercise participation exert a positive effect on numerous aspects of individuals' health. Although sport and exercise leaders have generally been observed to play a key role in shaping grou...
Previous physical activity (PA) tracking studies have examined the stability of overall PA and/or PA types, but few have investigated how specific types of sport/exercise track over the life course. T...
A sport in which weights are lifted competitively or as an exercise.
Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.
A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
The oxygen consumption level above which aerobic energy production is supplemented by anaerobic mechanisms during exercise, resulting in a sustained increase in lactate concentration and metabolic acidosis. The anaerobic threshold is affected by factors that modify oxygen delivery to the tissues; it is low in patients with heart disease. Methods of measurement include direct measure of lactate concentration, direct measurement of bicarbonate concentration, and gas exchange measurements.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
