Is Performing Eccentric Exercise Optimal for Strength and Function in Older Adults?

2024-01-18T14:59:59-05:00

Utilizing heavy loads is important when designing resistance training programs for older adults. Although eccentric (i.e. lengthening under tension) contractions were not necessary to build strength in older adults, they were more effective than traditional resistance training June 18, 2021 Dr. Ashley Gluchowski, PhD, CSEP-CEP Healthy Ageing Research Group, The University [...]

The Get Active Questionnaire for Pregnancy: Breaking down barriers to prenatal exercise

2024-01-18T15:10:29-05:00

The Get Active Questionnaire for Pregnancy (GAQ-P) and associated Health Care Provider Consultation Form for Physical Activity during Pregnancy have been designed to identify individuals who may not benefit from prenatal exercise, while reducing barriers to physical activity for the majority of pregnant individuals. April 18, 2021 Brittany Ward, CSEP-CEP Program [...]

Snacking on sprints to boost fitness and improve exercise performance

2024-01-18T14:52:33-05:00

Isolated bouts of brief intense exercise over the course of the day – known as “sprint exercise snacks” – can improve cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) in sedentary young adults. March 16, 2021 Hashim Islam, PhD, Postdoctoral Fellow School of Health and Exercise Sciences, UBC Okanagan Background Low CRF is an independent predictor [...]

Cold temperatures can reduce muscle strength and speed but increase muscle activity

2024-01-18T14:46:10-05:00

During everyday life, humans experience fluctuations in temperature which can influence muscle performance. For example, cooling the muscle has been shown to slow muscle contractile speed and decrease strength. February 17, 2021 Mathew Debenham, PhD Candidate School of Health and Exercise Sciences, The University of British Columbia Okanagan Background [...]

Wearing a face mask does not limit exercise performance

2024-01-18T14:53:34-05:00

Public health officials have suggested the use of masks to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Our results suggest wearing a mask during exercise will have no impact on performance. December 15, 2020 Keely Shaw, PhD Student University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada Take home message Wearing a [...]

Elevated plasma lactate levels via exogenous lactate infusion do not alter resistance exercise-induced signaling or protein synthesis in human skeletal muscle

2024-01-18T14:52:06-05:00

This study explored whether experimentally increasing blood lactate increased muscle protein synthesis, an important process that contributes to an increase in muscle mass. November 20, 2020 Jeremy Cohen, MSc Student, and Chris Pignanelli, PhD Student Human Performance and Health Research Lab, Department of Human Health and Nutritional Science University of Guelph, [...]

High-intensity interval training improves memory in older adults

2024-01-18T14:42:27-05:00

High-intensity interval training may be an effective strategy to counteract age-related declines in memory. August 10, 2020 Katie Kowalski, DPT School of Kinesiology, Western University, London, Ontario, Canada Take home message 12-weeks of high-intensity interval training performed 3 times per week leads to greater improvements in memory than moderate-intensity [...]
