Fatigue, pain, and the recovery of neuromuscular function after consecutive days of full-body resistance exercise in trained men

The fatigue and physical recovery from full-body resistance exercise has not been well described. This lack of information has significant consequences for high-level sport, where there is often 48 h of recovery activities prescribed after a match …

Evaluation of sex-based differences in airway size and the physiological implications

Recent evidence suggests healthy females have significantly smaller central conducting airways than males when matched for either height or lung volume during analysis. This anatomical sex-based difference could impact the integrative response to …

Training status affects between-protocols differences in the assessment of maximal aerobic velocity

A successful aerobic performance depends on several physiological, biomechanical, and psychological factors (Bentley et al. 2007 ; Coyle 1995 ). Among physiological aspects, a high maximum pulmonary oxygen uptake ( $$\dot{V}$$ V ˙ O 2max ), the …

The influence of short-term high-altitude acclimatization on cerebral and leg tissue oxygenation post-orthostasis

In the upright stand position, the cerebral arteries are positioned above the heart resulting in a hydrostatic arterial pressure gradient between the heart and the brain, causing a reduction in cerebral perfusion pressure (Rosner and Coley 1986 ).

Eccentric exercise causes delayed sensory nerve conduction velocity but no repeated bout effect in the flexor pollicis brevis muscles

Eccentric contractions (ECCs), where a muscle lengthens under tension, can cause muscle damage (Clarkson and Sayers 1999 ). Symptoms of muscle damage can be observed after exercise and include: loss of maximal voluntary isometric contraction (MVC) …

Über diese Zeitschrift

With a focus on human integrative and translational physiology, the European Journal of Applied Physiology publishes original research that is considered likely to further our understanding of the functioning of the intact healthy human body under a variety of environmental (e.g. altitude, climatic, gravitational) and exercise conditions. Contexts include those relating to occupational, sporting, recreational and daily activities throughout the human life-span from childhood to old age.
