The purpose of this randomized uncontrolled single-site trial is to evaluate the efficacy of two novel computerized cognitive enhancing software packages for improving cognitive and behavi...
A prospective randomized pragmatic trial will be used to obtain data on energy expenditure, temperature changes and vasomotor symptoms at baseline, during the intervention in which partici...
Regular aerobic exercise is associated with reduced risk of multiple cancers, yet the majority of adults are inactive. Across health behavior theories, the expectations people have about t...
This study evaluates the ability of the transverse abdominis (TrA) to contract during and after two different types of exercise - either sling based exercise or traditional core stability ...
The current study was designed to investigate the influence of choice of exercise program on exercise adherence. The two exercise programs included 1) traditional exercise at a fitness cen...
Exercise interventions can result in weight loss, which is associated with reductions in disease risk. It is unknown how the volume of exercise prescribed in a one-time exercise intervention impacts l...
Exercise intervention studies for brain health can be difficult to interpret due to heterogeneity in exercise intensity, exercise duration, and in adherence to the exercise intervention. This study ai...
Exercise is increasingly recognized as an important element in the treatment of Parkinson's disease but what is exercise targeting? What accounts for the benefits observed in Parkinson's disease? Is e...
Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) is a non-invasive simultaneous measurement of the cardiovascular and respiratory system during exercise to assess a patient's exercise capacity.It is used in a ...
Energy expenditure of resistance exercise (RE) is an important consideration for exercise prescription and weight management, yet prediction models are lacking.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.
Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).
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.
