Stretching Exercise Program Improves Gait in the Elderly
(Gerontology, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
Background: Ageing is characterized by a number of physical changes that contribute to a decline in the ability to perform daily tasks. Stretching has been proposed to reduce hip flexion contracture and increase hip and ...
Obesity: effects of physical exercise and metformin on metabolic aspects of monosodium glutamate treated rats
(Obesity and Metabolism-milan, 2009-09-01) [Artigo]
The present study investigated the effects of swimming training and metformin on metabolic aspects of obese rats. Wistar rats were divided into control (C), obese (O), Trained Obese (TO) and metformin obese (MO) groups. ...
Aerobic fitness level modulates the effects of prior supramaximal exercise on pulmonary VO2 response during moderate-intensity exercise
(Journal of Exercise Science & Fitness, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
The aim of this study was to analyze the influence of aerobic fitness on the effects of prior exercise on VO2response during subsequent moderate-intensity exercise. After determination of the lactate threshold (LT) and ...
Influence of recovery manipulation after hyperlactemia induction on the lactate minimum intensity
(European Journal of Applied Physiology, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
This study analyzed the influence of recovery phase manipulation after hyperlactemia induction on the lactate minimum intensity during treadmill running. Twelve male runners (24.6 +/- A 6.3 years; 172 +/- A 8.0 cm and 62.6 ...
Effects of Strength Training on Running Economy
(International Journal of Sports Medicine, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
The objective of this study was to compare the effect of different strength training protocols added to endurance training on running economy (RE). Sixteen well-trained runners (27.4 +/- 4.4 years; 62.7 +/- 4.3 kg; 166.1 ...
Benefits of physical exercise on executive functions in older people with Parkinson's disease
(Brain and Cognition, 2009-03-01) [Artigo]
The benefits of physical exercise on cognitive functioning have been reported in the literature, but the potential benefits to slow the eventual decline in executive functioning (EF) caused by neurodegeneration from ...
EMG amplitude and frequency parameters of muscular activity: Effect of resistance training based on electromyographic fatigue threshold
(Journal of Electromyography and Kinesiology, 2009-04-01) [Artigo]
The present study aimed to evaluate the effect of a resistance training program based on the electromyographic fatigue threshold (EMG(FT), defined is the highest exercise intensity performed without EMG alterations), on ...
Sensory reweighting in adult postural control
(Journal of Sport & Exercise Psychology, 2009-06-01) [Resumo]
Age-related changes in postural control sensory reweighting
(Neuroscience Letters, 2009-12-31) [Artigo]
The aim of this study was to investigate the adaptive process in the coupling between visual information and body sway in children postural control. Twenty-seven children from 4-, 8- and 12-year-olds and ten adults stood ...
PHYSIOLOGICAL and NEUROMUSCULAR PROFILE DURING A BODYPUMP SESSION: ACUTE RESPONSES DURING A HIGH-RESISTANCE TRAINING SESSION
