    Purpose: A simple ankle-foot exoskeleton that assists plantarflexion during push-off can reduce the metabolic power during walking. This suggests that walking performance during a maximal incremental exercise could be improved with an exoskeleton if the exoskeleton is still efficient during...

    The aim of this investigation was to determine the effect of even, negative and positive pacing on metabolic, kinematic and temporal variables during breaststroke swimming. Nine male swimmers [mean (SD): age 21 (3) years, height 178 (5) cm, body mass 77.2 (6.7) kg, 200 m-time 158.6 (13.6) s]...

    Objectives: To investigate the effect of cadence selection during the final minutes of cycling on metabolic responses, stride pattern, and subsequent running time to fatigue. Methods: Eight triathletes performed, in a laboratory setting, two incremental tests (running and cycling) to determine...

  • Effect of boxing exercises on physiological and biochemical responses of Egyptian elite boxers. El-Ashker, Said; Nasr, Mostafa // Journal of Physical Education & Sport;2012, Vol. 12 Issue 1, p111 

    Boxing is a combat sport characterized by High intensity movements during limited rounds, with short breaks are insufficient for full recovery. Physiologists should be conscious of the physiological and biochemical changes that might cause by boxing exercises. The aim of the study is to assess...

  • Reliability of an incremental exercise test to evaluate acute blood lactate, heart rate and body temperature responses in Labrador retrievers. Ferasin, Luca; Marcora, Samuele // Journal of Comparative Physiology B: Biochemical, Systemic & Env;Oct2009, Vol. 179 Issue 7, p839 

    Thirteen healthy Labrador retrievers underwent a 5-stage incremental treadmill exercise test to assess its reliability. Blood lactate (BL), heart rate (HR), and body temperature (BT) were measured at rest, after each stage of exercise, and after a 20-min recovery. Reproducibility was assessed by...

  • The effect of self- even- and variable-pacing strategies on the physiological and perceptual response to cycling. Thomas, Kevin; Stone, Mark; Thompson, Kevin; Gibson, Alan; Ansley, Les // European Journal of Applied Physiology;Aug2012, Vol. 112 Issue 8, p3069 

    It has been proposed that an even-pacing strategy is optimal for events lasting <120 s, but this assertion is not well-established. This study tested the hypothesis that even-paced cycling is less challenging than self- or variable-paced cycling. Ten well-trained male cyclists ( $$...

  • Effect of exercise duration on session RPE at an individualized constant workload. Green, J. Matthew; McIntosh, Joyce R.; Hornsby, Jarred; Timme, Lauren; Gover, Lauren; Mayes, Jennifer L. // European Journal of Applied Physiology;Nov2009, Vol. 107 Issue 5, p501 

    Session RPE (SRPE) permits subjective ratings of global effort following exercise. SRPE is useful for evaluating training load; however, mediating factors are not well understood. This study compared SRPE among treadmill trials at a clamped workload with a varied duration. Ten subjects...

  • The eccentric muscle loading influences the pacing strategies during repeated downhill sprint intervals. Baron, B.; Deruelle, F.; Moullan, F.; Dalleau, G.; Verkindt, C.; Noakes, T. D. // European Journal of Applied Physiology;Mar2009, Vol. 105 Issue 5, p749 

    The purpose was to compare self-chosen pace during ten repetitions of 60 m running sprints performed on a level surface (SPL), or when running uphill (SPU) or downhill (SPD) on a 4.7% slope. When expressed as percent of maximal running speed for corresponding condition, SPD was lower than SPL...
