Heart rate variability responses to acute and repeated post-exercise sauna in trained cyclists

October 11, 2018

The use of heat exposure has been a growing area of scientific interest with performance and health benefits reported for adults. Athletes typically undertake exercise in the heat to develop adaptations that lead to improved performance.


Is Achieving Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines Important For Blood Vessel Health in Older Adults?

September 17, 2018

The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) recommends that older adults (≥65 years) accumulate 150 minutes of moderate- to vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity per week. Unfortunately, only ~12% of older adults in Canada achieve this recommendation and most spend ~70-80% of their waking hours engaged in sedentary behaviours like sitting


Modulation of motoneurone excitability during rhythmic motor outputs

August 23, 2018

Walking is a rhythmic motor output that can be performed with little to no conscious effort. Despite seeming like a fairly simple task, walking is actually quite complex with numerous muscles, limbs and joints that must be controlled with precise timing and coordination in order to produce this activity


Can strength training one limb preserve an opposite immobilized limb?

July 27, 2018

Evidence for the opposite limb (i.e. contralateral) effect of single limb training has existed for well over a century. This inter-limb transfer effect is commonly described as cross-education whereby single limb strength or skill training leads to an enhancement in the opposite untrained limb


A single exercise session may protect the heart of breast cancer patients from chemotherapy

January 15, 2018

In this study, we aimed to translate the finding demonstrated by research studies in rodents that performing a single treadmill session 24 hours prior to receipt of a class of chemotherapy agents called anthracyclines can protect the heart from the chemotherapy's damaging effects.
