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 weekly bout of eccentric exercise is sufficient to induce health-promoting effects
Purpose: The effects of chronic eccentric-only versus concentric-only exercise on muscle physiology and blood biochemistry were investigated. Methods: Twenty women performed on an isokinetic dynamometer a concentric (n = ...
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 ...
Comparison between glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase-deficient and normal individuals after eccentric exercise
PURPOSE: Theoretically, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD)-deficient compared with nondeficient individuals may be less capable of performing physical activities and/or may be more vulnerable to muscle damage and ...
Beneficial changes in energy expenditure and lipid profile after eccentric exercise in overweight and lean women
The aim was to compare lean and overweight females in regard to the effects of eccentric exercise on muscle damage indices, resting energy expenditure (REE) and respiratory quotient (RQ) as well as blood lipid and lipoprotein ...
Adipocytokine levels in children: Effects of fatness and training
To investigate the effects of obesity and exercise training on plasma adipocytokines a sample of 42 children (lean = 24, %BF = 17.8 ± 7.5%; obese = 18; %BF = 29.1 ± 9.3%; mean age = 12.4 ± 1.9 yrs), were divided into 4 ...
