Independent influence of spinal cord injury level on thermoregulation during exercise

Posted on October 2, 2019 by

The purpose of this study was to establish the independent influence of SCI level on the change in core temperature and thermoregulatory sweating in athletes with TP (C5-C8), high paraplegia (HP; T1-T5), low paraplegia (LP; T6-L1), and AB controls during exercise in the heat.

The effect of self-paced and prescribed interset rest strategies on performance in strength training

Posted on September 18, 2019 by

The purpose of this study was to compare the kinetic, neuromuscular, and subjective responses between self-selected rest period conditions and prescribed 3 and 5 minute rest conditions in strength-trained athletes, during heavy back squat resistance training.

Hyperoxia enhances self-paced exercise performance to a greater extent in cool than hot conditions

Posted on August 19, 2019 by

The purpose of the study was to determine whether supplementation with a hyperoxic gas mixture during the final 25% of a 40 min cycling time trial in hot conditions would compensate for the impairment in self-paced exercise performance observed during heat stress.
