Effect of external compression on femoral retrograde shear and microvascular oxygenation in exercise trained and recreationally active young men

Blood flow is triphasic in the peripheral conduit arteries and is characterized as having a systolic antegrade (forward) component, an early diastolic retrograde (backward) component and a late diastolic antegrade component. Antegrade shear is …

Cardiorespiratory coordination reveals training-specific physiological adaptations

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) provides similar or even greater improvements in aerobic fitness than moderate-intensity continuous training (CONT), despite a shorter training time commitment (Meyer et al. 2013 ; Jelleyman et al. 2015 ; …

Metabolic and muscular factors limiting aerobic exercise in obese subjects

Obesity is associated with some cardiovascular diseases, such as coronary heart disease and abnormalities in heart rate properties (Poirier et al. 2006 ; López-Jiménez and Cortés-Bergoderi 2011 ; Alpert et al. 2016 ; Ortega et al. 2016 ). At rest …

Leg- vs arm-cycling repeated sprints with blood flow restriction and systemic hypoxia

High oxygen consumption requires both oxygen delivery (convective factor) and oxygen extraction (diffusive factor) (Holmberg 2015 ), along with high perfusion pressure and corresponding vascular conductance (Calbet and Joyner 2010 ). These …

Aerobic or resistance exercise performed the previous day does not attenuate postprandial hyperglycemia-induced endothelial dysfunction in overweight/obese adults

Epidemiological studies support that postprandial hyperglycemia (PPH), the transient increase in blood glucose levels following a carbohydrate challenge, better predicts cardiovascular disease (CVD)-related morbidity and mortality compared to …

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.
