During everyday life, humans experience fluctuations in temperature which can influence muscle performance. For example, cooling the muscle has been shown to slow muscle contractile speed and decrease strength
Public health officials have suggested the use of masks to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Our results suggest wearing a mask during exercise will have no impact on performance
This study explored whether experimentally increasing blood lactate increased muscle protein synthesis, an important process that contributes to an increase in muscle mass.
Ingesting the ketone monoester supplement before exercise increased blood ketone levels in 30 minutes
High-intensity interval training may be an effective strategy to counteract age-related declines in memory.
Time to revisit medical ‘absolute’ and ‘relative’ contraindications.
Studies the effects of a cluster set configuration on measures of power in sprint athletes under the supervision of Dr. Phil Chilibeck.
This article offers insight into the safety and potential benefits of a multi-component (aerobic, resistance, balance, and flexibility) exercise program and may be helpful to practitioners working with pre-frail older females.
Aerobic exercise performance is often seen to be greatest in cooler environmental temperatures (approx. range 3°C to 20°C) and core body temperature is neutral, as this reduces stress placed on the body. Very little research has looked at aerobic exercise performance in a cold environment when core temperature is reduced.
The global market for dietary supplements is estimated to rise to 278 billion USD by 2024. Indeed, researchers and practitioners may be vulnerable to over-interpretation/application of findings in nutrition research. Therefore, it is important for nutrition researchers and practitioners to maintain scientific rigor in their study designs, methodologies, and interpretations.
