(2019-04-16)As a population, firefighters are at high risk for many health-related issues (e.g., sudden cardiac events, obesity, hypertension, fatigue, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety). Physical activity (i.e., ...
Manipulating dietary protein density and its effect on training-induced muscle performance and overall health among middle-aged adults (2018-03-29)By 2050, the aging population worldwide is expected to increase vastly. This has major implications as the progressive loss of muscle strength is a common consequence of aging and negatively impacts physical performance ...
(2017-06-16)Whole body and skeletal muscle mass is regulated by counterbalanced fluctuations between protein synthesis and breakdown rates. Protein ingestion has been shown to stimulate protein synthesis rates and thus is an important ...
The acute effects of high-intensity interval and continuous aerobic exercise on physiological and functional outcomes in persons with multiple sclerosis (2017-07-05)BACKGROUND: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an immune-mediated disease of the central nervous system that results in physiological deconditioning and walking impairments. High-intensity interval training exercise (HIIT) has ...
The effect of meal composition to modulate the anabolic response during recovery from resistance exercise (2016-12-01)Two of the most powerful anabolic stimuli to skeletal muscle tissue are resistance exercise (RE) and protein ingestion. RE and protein ingestion synergistically enhance the muscle protein synthetic response. Evidence ...
The whole-body protein turnover response to the ingestion of intrinsically labeled eggs at rest and after endurance exercise (2017-04-28)A large focus of post-exercise recovery has been on the ingestion of dietary or supplemental protein to maximize skeletal muscle protein synthesis to facilitate remodeling (e.g., growth and repair of muscle). However, ...
Traumatic brain injuries and older adults: The implications of neck strength, muscle activation, and range of motion (2019-06-20)Fall-related traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in older adults. Previous research has focused on non-modifiable risk factors, such as age and gender. However, some potential ...
