Injured? Increase Your Muscle Mass with Blood Flow Restriction Training

Dayton Kelly It is not unusual in many gyms to see athletes, particularly weight lifters, with bands or wraps tied around their limbs whilst exercising. While it may appear strange, these athletes are intending to limit blood supply to their working muscle to spur muscle growth in a practice called “blood flow restrictive training”.

Does Exercise in Morning & Evening Have an Effect on Fat Burning Response?

A Review by Alyssa Bialowas Metabolic syndrome is a group of conditions that occur together to increase your risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke and diabetes. Lipid oxidation is important if you want to prevent or alleviate metabolic syndrome, and exercise is one of the key ways to oxidize lipids. When evaluating lipid oxidation, it’s

The Role of Biofeedback in VO2 Max Testing

A Review by Alyssa Bialowas There are various approaches attempting to modify cardiovascular reactivity in healthy adults and athletes, such as using contingent (true) and non-contingent (false) heart rate biofeedback. In previous studies, subjects who receive instruction to compete for heart rate reduction perform differently, indicating that biofeedback is an effective method for heart

The Most Effective Coping Technique for Competition Performance

A Review by Alyssa Bialowas An athletes’ ability to handle their nerves and perform under pressure leads to successful performance outcomes in competition. Athletes who exhibit vital self-regulatory processes while competing enable an athlete to regulate physiological and psychological states to help guide sport behaviors and decision-making that lead to goal achievement. Without effective

Effect of Endurance Training on Lactate Threshold

A Review by Alyssa Bialowas Tools for aerobic fitness evaluation in endurance training are used in sport and clinical fields to test blood lactate levels for training and competition. Anaerobic threshold (LTAN) is defined as the point during exercise at which lactic acid starts to accumulate in the muscles, the point in intense exercise

Do High-Intensity Exercises and Carbs Alter the Proteins in Your Fat?

A Review by Alyssa Bialowas Introduction Visfatin is a protein found in visceral fat, and has been connected to a number of cellular functions including inflammation and glucose metabolism. As this study by Mellick et al. (2017) points out, the interaction between plasma visfatin and extracellular glucose regulation during exercise is not fully understood.

The Elevation Training Mask – A Competitive Advantage

A Review by Alyssa Bialowas Elite and well-trained athletes search for the competitive edge in their training to optimize their competition results. Altitude training and respiratory muscle training (RMT) have been reported to improve performance in aerobic capacity in competitive distance runners. For athletes who train in environments that lack diversity of altitudes, devices

The Effects Of Altitude Training On Competitive Swimmers

A Review by Alyssa Bialowas Hypoxic training, also known as altitude training (training at heights above sea level), has been used for athletes in endurance sports to improve performance at sea level. Sport performance is improved when oxygen is transported around the body to working muscles. The more oxygen you can circulate, the harder

Do Children Perform Better In Sports Based On Coach’s Gender?

Alyssa Bialowas   Introduction Coaching is a structured practice of development that helps another individual achieve a specific personal goal by providing guidance and teaching. Coaches develop particular leadership styles to influence an athlete’s behavior to help them achieve competitive advancement, as well as influence the psychological, emotional, and spiritual well being of players. Examining

Do You Need A Pacer?

Alyssa Bialowas Introduction Strong displays in endurance sport are as much about pacing as training. The ability to maintain a steady pace is key to endurance performance. There are many pacing tools that an endurance athlete uses in a race to steady their pace – whether that be using their watch for feedback or
