No adverse effects of statins on muscle function and health-related parameters in the elderly: An exercise study
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of a repeated bout of eccentric exercise on health-related parameters and muscle performance on subjects undergoing atorvastatin therapy. Twenty-eight elderly men ...
A single bout of downhill running transiently increases HOMA-IR without altering adipokine response in healthy adult women
Purpose: Eccentric exercise-induced muscle damage may cause marked alterations in insulin sensitivity. However, it is not entirely known whether such alterations are also related to changes in adipokine levels. The aim of ...
The effects of eccentric exercise on muscle function and proprioception of individuals being overweight and underweight
Paschalis, V, Nikolaidis, MG, Theodorou, AA, Deli, CK, Raso, V, Jamurtas, AZ, Giakas, G, and Koutedakis, Y. The effects of eccentric exercise on muscle function and proprioception of individuals being overweight and ...
Aging is not a barrier to muscle and redox adaptations: Applying the repeated eccentric exercise model
Despite the progress of analytic techniques and the refinement of study designs, striking disagreement exists among studies regarding the influence of exercise on muscle function and redox homeostasis in the elderly. The ...
Stair descending exercise increases muscle strength in elderly males with chronic heart failure
Background: Previous studies from our group have shown that "pure" eccentric exercise performed on an isokinetic dynamometer can induce health-promoting effects that may improve quality of life. In order to investigate ...
Stair Descending Exercise Using a Novel Automatic Escalator: Effects on Muscle Performance and Health-Related Parameters
A novel automatic escalator was designed, constructed and used in the present investigation. The aim of the present investigation was to compare the effect of two repeated sessions of stair descending versus stair ascending ...
