PTH And Calcium Responses to Exercise in Older Adults Experiment 2 (PACE Sr. 2)

Declines in serum calcium during exercise may cause increases in markers of bone resorption. This study will determine if preventing the decline serum ionized calcium experienced at the on...

Bone Development in Adolescent Girls: Effects of Calcium and Exercise

Osteoporosis is a major public health problem. Prevention of osteoporosis depends in part on good bone development in childhood and adolescence. This study will evaluate a weight-bearing ...

Study Comparing Bone Loss in Women Who Take Calcium and Vitamin D With Women Who Also Take Risedronate or Exercise

The purpose of this study is to identify the best way to prevent bone loss in the first years after menopause. The HOPE study will compare bone loss at 12 months in women: 1) who take cal...

Calcium Kinetic Responses to Exercise

This randomized cross-over study will identify physiological factors that underlie changes in bone metabolism that could affect skeletal injury risk, to include increases in parathyroid ho...

PTH And Calcium Responses to Exercise (PACE) in Older Adults

Exercise that causes a decline in serum Ca as a result of dermal Ca loss stimulates bone resorption via an increase in PTH.

Combined mineral-supplemented diet and exercise increases bone mass and strength after eight weeks and maintains increases after eight weeks detraining in adult mice.

Exercise has long-lasting benefits to bone mass and structural strength even after cessation. Combining exercise with a calcium- and phosphorus-supplemented diet increases cortical bone mineral conten...

Predictors of Adherence to Different Volumes of Exercise in the Breast Cancer and Exercise Trial in Alberta.

Exercise demonstrates a dose-response effect on many health outcomes; however, adhering to higher doses of exercise can be challenging, and the predictors of adherence may differ based on exercise vol...

Exercise and mental health literacy in an Australian adult population.

Exercise is a well-established treatment for depression, and its use in clinical care is supported by consumers and clinicians. However, whether public health messages regarding the benefits of exerci...

Impact of a Graded Exercise Program on VO2peak and Survival in Heart Failure Patients.

Although exercise therapy has the potential to improve health outcomes of patients with Chronic Heart Failure (CHF), less than 50% of patients adhere to prescribed physical activity guidelines one yea...

Veterinary Medical Students' Motivations for Exercise.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) declares exercise to be one of the most important activities one can do to improve health. The benefits of exercise are well documented and include both physiolog...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
