Eighteen athletes completed a interval (INT) ... 298 Wilkerson Daryl P - - 2012 Dietary nitrate supplementation has been reported to improve short distance time trial (TT) performance by 1-3 % in club-level cyclists. It is not known if these ergogenic effects persist in longer endurance events or if dietary nitrate supplementation can enhance performance to the same extent in better trained individuals. Eight well-trained ... 299 Mitchell Cameron J - - 2012 We have reported that the acute postexercise increases in muscle protein synthesis rates, with differing nutritional support, are predictive of longer-term training-induced muscle hypertrophy. Here, we aimed to test whether the same was true with acute exercise-mediated changes in muscle protein synthesis. Eighteen men (21 ± 1 yr, 22.6 ± ... 300 Barna Bárbara F - - 2012 During exercise, intense brain activity orchestrates an increase in muscle tension. Additionally, there is an increase in cardiac output and ventilation to compensate the increased metabolic demand of muscle activity and to facilitate the removal of CO(2) from and the delivery of O(2) to tissues. Here we tested the hypothesis ... < 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 >
