High intensity interval training in a real world setting: A randomized controlled feasibility study in overweight inactive adults, measuring change in maximal oxygen uptake
Background In research clinic settings, overweight adults undertaking HIIT (high intensity interval training) improve their fitness as effectively as those undertaking conventional walking programs but can do so within a ...
The effect of physical activity on serum lipids, lipoprotein, and apolipoproteins
(CIAFEL, Research Centre in Physical Activity, Health and Leisure., 2010)
The aim of this study was to measure apolipoprotein-A1 and apolipoprotein-B serum concentrations during a physical activity program. Serum apolipoprotein concentrations may be a more sensitive indicator of coronary heart ...
Determination of maximal oxygen uptake using the Bruce or a novel athlete-led protocol in a mixed population
(Academy of Physical Education, 2012)
Treadmill tests for maximal oxygen uptake (V O2max) have traditionally used set speed and incline increments regardless of participants training or exercise background. The aim of this study was to determine the validity ...
The effect of climbing ability and slope inclination on vertical foot loading using a novel force sensor instrumentation system
(De Gruyter Open, 2014-12-30)
The aim of the study was to assess the effects of climbing ability and slope inclination on vertical loading both in terms the forces involved and physiological responses. Five novice and six intermediate female climbers ...
Measurement of cardiorespiratory fitness in children from two commonly used field tests after accounting for body fatness and maturity
Body fat and maturation both influence cardiorespiratory fitness, however few studies have taken these variables into account when using field tests to predict children's fitness levels. The purpose of this study was to ...
