Acute Physiological and Perceptual Responses to Novel Forms of High-intensity Interval Exercise

Randomised cross-over study seeking to explore the acute physiological and perceptual responses to three novel forms of high-intensity interval training (HIT).

High-intensity Interval Training Training Protocols on Cardiorespiratory Parameters in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

Aim: To assess whether there are different training effects on glucose concentration and cardiorespiratory parameters of different high-intensity training protocols in patients with type 2...

Consistencies in Responses to Sodium Bicarbonate?

Intervention studies do not account for high within-individual variation potentially compromising the magnitude of an effect. Repeat administration of a treatment allows quantification of ...

Low InTensity Exercise Intervention in PAD

This proposed study will determine whether an exercise intervention that avoids continuous supervision and exercise-related ischemic pain improves walking performance at 52-week follow-up ...

A Physiological Profile of Recovery From Resistance, Endurance, and Mixed Exercise Types

The aim of this study to increase understanding of physiological and functional perturbations following a continuum of exercise stressors.

Perceptual Responses to High- and Moderate-Intensity Interval Exercise in Adolescents.

High-intensity continuous exercise is proposed to evoke unpleasant sensations as predicted by the dual mode theory (DMT), and may negatively impact on future exercise adherence. Previous studies suppo...

A protocol for a randomised controlled trial of the bone response to impact loading or resistance training in young women with lower than average bone mass: the OPTIMA-Ex trial.

The aim of the Osteoporosis Prevention Through Impact and Muscle-loading Approaches to Exercise trial is to compare the bone response to two known osteogenic stimuli - impact loading exercise and resi...

Acute High-Intensity Interval Cycling Improves Postprandial Lipid Metabolism.

To examine the effects of 2 exercise regimes on physiological and postprandial lipemic responses.

Effect of pre-exercise carbohydrate availability on fat oxidation and energy expenditure after a high-intensity exercise.

The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that reduced pre-exercise carbohydrate (CHO) availability potentiates fat oxidation after an exhaustive high-intensity exercise bout. Eight physically ...

Glucose response to exercise in the post-prandial period is independent of exercise intensity.

This study investigated the acute glucose response to low-intensity, moderate-intensity, and high-intensity interval exercise compared to no-exercise in healthy insufficiently active males using a fou...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.

Blue-light receptors that regulate a range of physiological responses in PLANTS. Examples include: PHOTOTROPISM, light-induced stomatal opening, and CHLOROPLAST movements in response to changes in light intensity.

A way of providing health care that is guided by a thoughtful integration of the best available scientific knowledge with clinical expertise. This approach allows the practitioner to critically assess research data, clinical guidelines, and other information resources in order to correctly identify the clinical problem, apply the most high-quality intervention, and re-evaluate the outcome for future improvement.

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
