  • ankle
  • Ankle muscle force during balance recovery approached its maximum during recovery from the largest achieved lean angle, and the ankle muscle force that was predicted to be required for the next largest lean angle exceeded 100% of subject strength. (cdc.gov)
  • These results imply that ankle strength limited the largest achieved lean angle (i.e. balance recovery ability), and suggest that increased ankle strength would increase the largest achieved lean angle. (cdc.gov)

  • protein

  • Thus, upon retraining the extra nuclei are already there and can rapidly start synthesizing new protein to build muscle mass and strength. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some say that human growth hormone will build muscle mass through raised insulin-like growth factors levels leading to heightened protein synthesis without any side effects while other researchers argue that there have been no such findings on young healthy adults. (wikipedia.org)
  • The second argument is more supported by research discoveries that HGH affects muscle protein synthesis no differently than a placebo does. (wikipedia.org)
  • Determinants
  • Four-hundred consecutive patients with type 1 and 2 diabetes (aged 46.4 ± 13.9 and 65.8 ± 10.3 years, respectively) from the Study on the Assessment of Determinants of Muscle and Bone Strength Abnormalities in Diabetes (SAMBA) were examined for upper and lower body muscle isometric maximal voluntary contraction by dynamometry.

  • endurance
  • Additionally, botanical ingredients provide nutritional support to help muscles adapt better to physical stress, enhance endurance, and speed recovery. (advocare.com)
  • The mechanisms implied for the muscle memory suggest that it mainly related to strength training, and a 2016 study conducted at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden, failed to find a memory effect of endurance training. (wikipedia.org)
  • Moderate doses of caffeine (around 5 mg/kg) can improve sprint performance, cycling and running time trial performance, endurance (i.e., it delays the onset of muscle fatigue and central fatigue), and cycling power output. (wikipedia.org)
  • In healthy people at oral therapeutic doses, amphetamine has been shown to increase physical strength, acceleration, stamina, and endurance, while reducing reaction time. (wikipedia.org)
  • deficits
  • Rehabilitation or intervention programs aimed at addressing deficits in self-reported performance in stooping, crouching, or kneeling should focus on improving distal strength. (massagemag.com)
  • Although addressing strength deficits is very important, those with stooping, crouching, or kneeling difficulty may also benefit from comprehensive programs by physical therapists that address balance confidence, coordination, leg joint limitations such as stiffness and pain, and sensory capacities. (massagemag.com)
  • knee
  • Examinees who had a history of myocardial infarction within the past six weeks, chest or abdominal surgery within the past three weeks, knee surgery or knee replacement surgery, severe back pain, a history of brain aneurysm or stroke were excluded from the muscle strength exam. (cdc.gov)
  • concentric
  • In a study involving 36 training sessions with subjects using only concentric actions or only eccentric actions, eccentric training resulted in an increase in fast-twitch fiber area approximately 10 times greater than that of concentric training, as well as substantially greater increases in strength. (prezi.com)
  • osteoporosis
  • However, being underweight is associated with health risks such as difficulty fighting off infection, osteoporosis, decreased muscle strength, trouble regulating body temperature and even increased risk of death. (wikipedia.org)
  • With regard to adverse drug reactions, there is data from animal studies that "long-term administration of human growth hormone can increase the risk of diabetes, retention of fluids, joint and muscle pain, hypertension, cardiomyopathy, osteoporosis, irregular menstruation, impotence and elevated HDL cholesterol. (wikipedia.org)
  • neck
  • The cranium lacks a pronounced occipital bun in the neck, a bulge that anchored considerable neck muscles in Neanderthals. (wikipedia.org)
  • neural
  • increasing evidence that neural control of the trained muscle is also altered, allowing greater force production. (prezi.com)
  • research
  • Children are likely to have stronger muscles if their mothers have a higher level of vitamin D in their body during pregnancy, according to new research. (nutraingredients.com)
  • However, very little is known about a role for antenatal 25(OH)D status in programming muscle development of babies, the research team said. (nutraingredients.com)
  • Recent research (last ten years) highlights the importance of eccentric movements in maximizing increases in muscle fiber cross-sectional area. (prezi.com)
  • body
  • Multivariate analysis revealed that upper and lower body strength correlated independently with male gender and, inversely, with age, autonomic neuropathy score (or individual autonomic function abnormalities), and vibration perception threshold, but not sensory-motor neuropathy score. (technogym.com)
  • The muscle cells are the largest cells in the body with a volume thousands of times larger than most other body cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • To support this large volume, the muscle cells are one of the very few in the mammalian body that contain several cell nuclei. (wikipedia.org)
  • A medical condition, Locked-in syndrome usually resulting from a stroke that damages part of the brainstem, in which the body and most of the facial muscles are paralysed but consciousness remains and the ability to perform certain eye movements is preserved. (wikipedia.org)
  • Humans
  • Hysterical strength is a display of extreme strength by humans, beyond what is believed to be normal, usually occurring when people are in life-and-death situations. (wikipedia.org)
  • function
  • Overall, these findings suggest that pulmonary function may partially account for the association of muscle strength and mortality. (mendeley.com)
  • Led by Dr Nicholas Harvey from the University of Southampton, UK, the team noted that maternal vitamin D status during pregnancy has been previously associated with offspring bone development and adiposity in addition to being implicated in postnatal muscle function. (nutraingredients.com)
  • This study was aimed at assessing muscle strength correlates in diabetic subjects encompassing a wide range of peripheral nerve function and various degrees of micro and macrovascular complications. (technogym.com)
  • In classical sport science, the yearly (sometimes multi-yearly) period is divided to micro and macro cycles, where each microcycle is responsible for the development of a specific (sometimes several) basic training function and parameter, whereas macrocycles are responsible for the development of complex parameters/functions (such as muscle strength). (wikipedia.org)
  • incidence
  • Age-related strength reductions may contribute to the higher incidence of older adult falls by limiting muscle forces during balance recovery. (cdc.gov)
  • However
  • However, studies reveal that mechanisms of strength gain are very complex. (prezi.com)
  • However, the relationships between in-flight exercise, muscle changes and performance are not well understood. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is questionable, however, as to whether adrenaline, released from the adrenal medulla into the venous circulation, can reach the muscle quickly enough in order to be able to cause such an effect in the midst of a crisis. (wikipedia.org)
