Double-blind intervention trial on modulation of ozone effects on pulmonary function by antioxidant supplements. (1/1075)

The aim of this study was to investigate whether the acute effects of ozone on lung function could be modulated by antioxidant vitamin supplementation in a placebo-controlled study. Lung function was measured in Dutch bicyclists (n = 38) before and after each training session on a number of occasions (n = 380) during the summer of 1996. The vitamin group (n = 20) received 100 mg of vitamin E and 500 mg of vitamin C daily for 15 weeks. The average ozone concentration during exercise was 77 microg/m3 (range, 14-186 microg/m3). After exclusion of subjects with insufficient compliance from the analysis, a difference in ozone exposure of 100 microg/m3 decreased forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) 95 ml (95% confidence interval (CI) -265 to -53) in the placebo group and 1 ml (95% CI -94 to 132) in the vitamin group; for forced vital capacity, the change was -125 ml (95% CI -384 to -36) in the placebo group and -42 ml (95% CI -130 to 35) in the vitamin group. The differences in ozone effect on lung function between the groups were statistically significant. The results suggest that supplementation with the antioxidant vitamins C and E confers partial protection against the acute effects of ozone on FEV1 and forced vital capacity in cyclists.  (+info)

Heart rate during exercise with leg vascular occlusion in spinal cord-injured humans. (2/1075)

Feed-forward and feedback mechanisms are both important for control of the heart rate response to muscular exercise, but their origin and relative importance remain inadequately understood. To evaluate whether humoral mechanisms are of importance, the heart rate response to electrically induced cycling was studied in participants with spinal cord injury (SCI) and compared with that elicited during volitional cycling in able-bodied persons (C). During voluntary exercise at an oxygen uptake of approximately 1 l/min, heart rate increased from 66 +/- 4 to 86 +/- 4 (SE) beats/min in seven C, and during electrically induced exercise at a similar oxygen uptake in SCI it increased from 73 +/- 3 to 110 +/- 8 beats/min. In contrast, blood pressure increased only in C (from 88 +/- 3 to 99 +/- 4 mmHg), confirming that, during exercise, blood pressure control is dominated by peripheral neural feedback mechanisms. With vascular occlusion of the legs, the exercise-induced increase in heart rate was reduced or even eliminated in the electrically stimulated SCI. For C, heart rate tended to be lower than during exercise with free circulation to the legs. Release of the cuff elevated heart rate only in SCI. These data suggest that humoral feedback is of importance for the heart rate response to exercise and especially so when influence from the central nervous system and peripheral neural feedback from the working muscles are impaired or eliminated during electrically induced exercise in individuals with SCI.  (+info)

Effect of ambient temperature on human skeletal muscle metabolism during fatiguing submaximal exercise. (3/1075)

To examine the effect of ambient temperature on metabolism during fatiguing submaximal exercise, eight men cycled to exhaustion at a workload requiring 70% peak pulmonary oxygen uptake on three separate occasions, at least 1 wk apart. These trials were conducted in ambient temperatures of 3 degrees C (CT), 20 degrees C (NT), and 40 degrees C (HT). Although no differences in muscle or rectal temperature were observed before exercise, both muscle and rectal temperature were higher (P < 0.05) at fatigue in HT compared with CT and NT. Exercise time was longer in CT compared with NT, which, in turn, was longer compared with HT (85 +/- 8 vs. 60 +/- 11 vs. 30 +/- 3 min, respectively; P < 0.05). Plasma epinephrine concentration was not different at rest or at the point of fatigue when the three trials were compared, but concentrations of this hormone were higher (P < 0.05) when HT was compared with NT, which in turn was higher (P < 0.05) compared with CT after 20 min of exercise. Muscle glycogen concentration was not different at rest when the three trials were compared but was higher at fatigue in HT compared with NT and CT, which were not different (299 +/- 33 vs. 153 +/- 27 and 116 +/- 28 mmol/kg dry wt, respectively; P < 0.01). Intramuscular lactate concentration was not different at rest when the three trials were compared but was higher (P < 0.05) at fatigue in HT compared with CT. No differences in the concentration of the total intramuscular adenine nucleotide pool (ATP + ADP + AMP), phosphocreatine, or creatine were observed before or after exercise when the trials were compared. Although intramuscular IMP concentrations were not statistically different before or after exercise when the three trials were compared, there was an exercise-induced increase (P < 0.01) in IMP. These results demonstrate that fatigue during prolonged exercise in hot conditions is not related to carbohydrate availability. Furthermore, the increased endurance in CT compared with NT is probably due to a reduced glycogenolytic rate.  (+info)

Evidence of O2 supply-dependent VO2 max in the exercise-trained human quadriceps. (4/1075)

Maximal O2 delivery and O2 uptake (VO2) per 100 g of active muscle mass are far greater during knee extensor (KE) than during cycle exercise: 73 and 60 ml. min-1. 100 g-1 (2.4 kg of muscle) (R. S. Richardson, D. R. Knight, D. C. Poole, S. S. Kurdak, M. C. Hogan, B. Grassi, and P. D. Wagner. Am. J. Physiol. 268 (Heart Circ. Physiol. 37): H1453-H1461, 1995) and 28 and 25 ml. min-1. 100 g-1 (7.5 kg of muscle) (D. R. Knight, W. Schaffartzik, H. J. Guy, R. Predilleto, M. C. Hogan, and P. D. Wagner. J. Appl. Physiol. 75: 2586-2593, 1993), respectively. Although this is evidence of muscle O2 supply dependence in itself, it raises the following question: With such high O2 delivery in KE, are the quadriceps still O2 supply dependent at maximal exercise? To answer this question, seven trained subjects performed maximum KE exercise in hypoxia [0.12 inspired O2 fraction (FIO2)], normoxia (0.21 FIO2), and hyperoxia (1.0 FIO2) in a balanced order. The protocol (after warm-up) was a square wave to a previously determined maximum work rate followed by incremental stages to ensure that a true maximum was achieved under each condition. Direct measures of arterial and venous blood O2 concentration in combination with a thermodilution blood flow technique allowed the determination of O2 delivery and muscle VO2. Maximal O2 delivery increased with inspired O2: 1.3 +/- 0.1, 1.6 +/- 0.2, and 1.9 +/- 0.2 l/min at 0.12, 0.21, and 1.0 FIO2, respectively (P < 0.05). Maximal work rate was affected by variations in inspired O2 (-25 and +14% at 0.12 and 1.0 FIO2, respectively, compared with normoxia, P < 0.05) as was maximal VO2 (VO2 max): 1.04 +/- 0.13, 1. 24 +/- 0.16, and 1.45 +/- 0.19 l/min at 0.12, 0.21, and 1.0 FIO2, respectively (P < 0.05). Calculated mean capillary PO2 also varied with FIO2 (28.3 +/- 1.0, 34.8 +/- 2.0, and 40.7 +/- 1.9 Torr at 0.12, 0.21, and 1.0 FIO2, respectively, P < 0.05) and was proportionally related to changes in VO2 max, supporting our previous finding that a decrease in O2 supply will proportionately decrease muscle VO2 max. As even in the isolated quadriceps (where normoxic O2 delivery is the highest recorded in humans) an increase in O2 supply by hyperoxia allows the achievement of a greater VO2 max, we conclude that, in normoxic conditions of isolated KE exercise, KE VO2 max in trained subjects is not limited by mitochondrial metabolic rate but, rather, by O2 supply.  (+info)

Pyruvate dehydrogenase activation in inactive muscle during and after maximal exercise in men. (5/1075)

Pyruvate dehydrogenase activity (PDHa) and acetyl-group accumulation were examined in the inactive deltoid muscle in response to maximal leg exercise in men. Seven subjects completed three consecutive 30-s bouts of maximal isokinetic cycling, with 4-min rest intervals between bouts. Biopsies of the deltoid were obtained before exercise, after bouts 1 and 3, and after 15 min of rest recovery. Inactive muscle lactate (LA) and pyruvate (PYR) contents increased more than twofold (P < 0.05) after exercise (bout 3) and remained elevated after 15 min of recovery (P < 0.05). Increased PYR accumulation secondary to LA uptake by the inactive deltoid was associated with greater PDHa, which progressively increased from 0.71 +/- 0.23 mmol. min-1. kg wet wt-1 at rest to a maximum of 1.83 +/- 0.30 mmol. min-1. kg wet wt-1 after bout 3 (P < 0.05) and remained elevated after 15 min of recovery (1.63 +/- 0.24 mmol. min-1. kg wet wt-1; P < 0.05). Acetyl-CoA and acetylcarnitine accumulations were unaltered. Increased PDHa allowed and did not limit the oxidation of LA and PYR in inactive human skeletal muscle after maximal exercise.  (+info)

High-resistance training and muscle metabolism during prolonged exercise. (6/1075)

To investigate the hypothesis that changes in muscle submaximal exercise metabolism would occur as a result of fiber hypertrophy, induced by high-resistance training (HRT), active but untrained males (age 20 +/- 0.7 yr; mean +/- SE) performed lower-limb weight training 3 days/wk for 12 wk using three sets of 6-8 repetitions maximal (RM)/day. Muscle metabolism was examined at different stages of training (4, 7, and 12 wk) using a two-stage continuous cycle test performed at the same absolute power output and duration (56.4 +/- 2.9 min) and representing 57 and 72% of pretraining peak aerobic power (VO2 peak). Compared with pretraining, at the end of exercise, HRT resulted in a higher (P < 0.05) phosphocreatine (PCr; 27.4 +/- 6. 7 vs. 38.0 +/- 1.9 mmol/kg dry wt), a lower lactate (38.9 +/- 8.5 vs. 24.4 +/- 6.1 mmol/kg dry wt), and a higher (P < 0.05) glycogen content (132 +/- 11 vs. 181 +/- 7.5 mmol glucosyl units/kg dry wt). The percent change from rest before and after training was 63 and 50% for PCr, 676 and 410% for lactate, and 60 and 43% for glycogen, respectively. These adaptations, which were observed only at 72% VO2 peak, occurred by 4 wk of training in the case of PCr and glycogen and before any changes in fiber cross-sectional area, capillarization, or oxidative potential. Fiber hypertrophy, observed at 7 and 12 wk of training, failed to potentiate the metabolic response. No effect of HRT was found on VO2 peak with training (41.2 +/- 2.9 vs. 41.0 +/- 2.1 ml. kg-1. min-1) or on the steady-state, submaximal exercise rate of oxygen consumption. It is concluded that the HRT results in muscle metabolic adaptations that occur independently of fiber hypertrophy.  (+info)

Peripheral muscle ergoreceptors and ventilatory response during exercise recovery in heart failure. (7/1075)

Recent studies have suggested that the increased ventilatory response during exercise in patients with chronic heart failure was related to the activation of muscle metaboreceptors. To address this issue, 23 patients with heart failure and 7 normal subjects performed arm and leg bicycle exercises with and without cuff inflation around the arms or the thighs during recovery. Obstruction slightly reduced ventilation and gas exchange variables at recovery but did not change the kinetics of recovery of these parameters compared with nonobstructed recovery: half-time of ventilation recovery was 175 +/- 54 to 176 +/- 40 s in patients and 155 +/- 66 to 127 +/- 13 s in controls (P < 0.05, patients vs. controls, not significant within each group from baseline to obstructed recovery). We conclude that muscle metaboreceptor activation does not seem to play a role in the exertion hyperventilation of patients with heart failure.  (+info)

Breathing patterns during slow and fast ramp exercise in man. (8/1075)

Breathing frequency (fb), tidal volume (VT), and respiratory timing during slow (SR, 8 W min-1) and fast (FR, 65 W min-1) ramp exercise to exhaustion on a cycle ergometer was examined in seven healthy male subjects. Expiratory ventilation (VE), pulmonary gas exchange (VO2 and VCO2) and end-tidal gas tensions (PET,O2 and PET,CO2) were determined using breath-by-breath techniques. Arterialized venous blood was sampled from a dorsal hand vein at 2 min intervals during SR and 30 s intervals during FR and analysed for arterial plasma PCO2 (PaCO2). PET,CO2 increased with increasing work rates (WRs) below the ventilatory threshold (VT); at WRs > or = 90% VO2,max, PET,CO2 was reduced (P < 0.05) below 0 W values in SR but not in FR.fb and VT were similar for SR and FR at all submaximal WRs, resulting in a similar VE. At exhaustion VE was similar but fb was higher (P < 0.05) and VT was lower (P < 0.05) in SR (fb, 51 +/- 10 breaths min-1; VT, 2590 +/- 590 ml) than in FR (fb, 42 +/- 8 breaths min-1; VT, 3050 +/- 470 ml). The time of expiration (TE) decreased with increasing WR, but there was no difference between SR and FR. The time of inspiration (TI) decreased at exercise intensities > or = VT; at exhaustion, TI was shorter (P < 0.05) during SR (0.512 +/- 0.097 s) than during FR (0.753 +/- 0.100 s). The TI to total breath duration (TI/TTot) and the inspiratory flow (VT/TI) were similar during SR and FR at all submaximal exercise intensities; at VO2,max, TI/TTot was lower (P < 0.05) and VT/TI was higher (P < 0.05) during SR (TI/TTot, 0.473 +/- 0.030; VT/TI, 5.092 +/- 0.377 l s-1) than during FR (TI/TTot, 0.567 +/- 0.050; VT/TI, 4.117 +/- 0.635 l s-1). These results suggest that during progressive exercise, breathing pattern and respiratory timing may be determined, at least at submaximal work rates, independently of alveolar and arterial PCO2.  (+info)

Bicycle accidents have become the most common cause of serious injury in the traffic during the last couple of years in Sweden. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of the input variables, initial velocity and head orientation, of a bicycle accident reconstruction on the strain levels in the brain using a detailed FE head model. The accident involved a non-helmeted 68 year old male who sustained a linear skull fracture, contusions, acute subdural hematoma, and small bleeding at the swelling (subarachnoid blood). The orientation of the head just before impact was determined from the swelling appearing in the computer tomography (CT) scans. The head model used in this study was developed at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. The stress in the cranial bone, first principal strain in the brain tissue and acceleration were determined. The model was able to predict a strain pattern that correlated well with the medical images from the victim. The variation study ...
Carbohydrate mouth rinsing during exercise has been suggested to enhance performance of short (45-60 min) bouts of high-intensity (,75% VO2peak) exercise. Recent studies indicate that this performance enhancing effect may be dependent on the prandial state of the athlete. The purpose of this study was to define the impact of a carbohydrate mouth rinse on ~1-hr time trial performance in both the fasted and fed states. Using a double-blind, crossover design, 14 trained male cyclists (27 ± 6 years; 5.0 ± 0.5 W·kg−1) were selected to perform 4 time trials of ~1 hr (1,032 ± 127 kJ) on a cycle ergometer while rinsing their mouths with a 6.4% sucrose solution (SUC) or a noncaloric sweetened placebo (PLA) for 5 s at the start and at every 12.5% of their set amount of work completed. Two trials were performed in an overnight fasted state and two trials were performed 2 h after consuming a standardized breakfast. Performance time did not differ between any of the trials (fasted-PLA: 68.6 ± 7.2; ...

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa broke his elbow in a bicycle accident Saturday evening, a spokesman said. The mayor was riding in the bicycle lane on Venice Boulevard in Mid-City at about 6:50 p.m. when a taxi abruptly pulled in front of him. The mayor hit his brakes and fell off the bike. He was transported to Ronald Reagan/UCLA Medical Center, where he was treated for the broken bone. By 10 p.m. he had been released and was resting comfortably at Getty House, the mayors official residence. The mayors accident comes as bicyclists in the city have increasingly been complaining about safety issues and pressing city officials to do more to make cycling safe. Bicycle advocates have called for more dedicated bike lanes and appeared repeatedly before the City Council to argue that a specific share of funds from Measure R, the 2008 sales tax for transportation projects, should be set aside for bicycle- and pedestrian-related initiatives.

During each pedal stroke, the knee goes through a revolution of both flexion and extension. Onset of knee pain is often coupled with overuse and exacerbated by overflexing the knee while applying a great amount of power. For example, at a minimum, a typical competitive amateur road cyclist trains at least 3 hours a ride, 5 days a week. Again, this is a minimum: Professional cyclists typically train 6 hours a day, 5 or 6 days a week.. Each week, therefore, a typical competitive amateur cyclist is on the bicycle 15 hours (3 hours × 5 days a week). When this cyclist is pedaling, cadence is typically 90 revolutions a minute. Each training ride, this cyclists knees are completing a full rotation of the crankset 16,200 times (90 × 60 × 3); each week, 81,000 revolutions; each year, 4,212,000 revolutions. If the knee is even slightly out of adjustment, the resulting pain can be severe and become chronic.. As the angle of knee flexion (KF) increases, the patella translates superiorly, increasing ...

The drivetrain begins with pedals which rotate the cranks, which are held in axis by the bottom bracket. Most bicycles use a chain to transmit power to the rear wheel. A very small number of bicycles use a shaft drive to transmit power, or special belts. Hydraulic bicycle transmissions have been built, but they are currently inefficient and complex. Since cyclists legs are most efficient over a narrow range of pedaling speeds, or cadence, a variable gear ratio helps a cyclist to maintain an optimum pedalling speed while covering varied terrain. Some, mainly utility, bicycles use hub gears with between 3 and 14 ratios, but most use the generally more efficient dérailleur system, by which the chain is moved between different cogs called chainrings and sprockets in order to select a ratio. A dérailleur system normally has two dérailleurs, or mechs, one at the front to select the chainring and another at the back to select the sprocket. Most bikes have two or three chainrings, and from 5 to 11 ...

Here on the island, we have a network of bike trails - and again, we have these folks who insist that they are "too serious" to ride on them, but instead drive to our island to ride their expensive road bikes on our shoulder-less roads.

In addition to these bedrock benefits of intensity, hard riding carries numerous other advantages for road cyclists, who all too often ride at the same, steady pace on nearly every ride.. Greater choices of rides. Hard riding improves your power. Even if you ride just for good health, more power increases the choices of routes for your rides. You can add longer, hillier, harder routes and rides to your repertoire.. More pedaling economy. Hard riding improves your economy, how fast you can go at a given heart rate. This allows you to do longer and/or harder recreational rides.. More speed. Because hard riding improves your power, it also improves your speed so that you can keep up with - and maybe even drop - younger riders on club and group rides. Or just increase your cruising speed so you can cover more distance in the same amount of time.. More fun. Remember what it was like as a kid to just hop on your bike and ride for the fun of it? By riding differently from day to day, using intensity to ...

I have to disagree. The fact that Amgen is the producer of a drug that is widely abused among professional cyclists is a legitimate reason for the sponsorship (if they go about addressing the problem in the right way). Almost all cyclists are aware of EPO, but I would be willing to bet that some do not know that it is a drug that has legitimate medical purposes. This sponsorship gives the company the opportunity to educate the cycling public about the drug and to stress the dangers of its improper use. If a rider had tested positive, I think the sponsors would have done just that. I think it is a safe bet to assume that they anticipated such a possible scenario and prepared a response in advance ...

Let me introduce our latest recruit to the triathlon team, Dave Mawhinney. I have raced alongside Dave since 2004 and we even did our first Ironman together in Nice, France. Whilst I like to race all triathlon distances, Dave has concentrated on Ironman racing and accomplished his long term goal of racing the world championships at the ironman distance in Hawaii last year. Not content with completing Hawaii last year, he managed to qualify again this year by winning his age group at Ironman UK (to put this in perspective, a recent article in triathletes world stated that 80,000 triathletes try to qualify for this iconic race). This is his first race report for TORQ and we hope you enjoy it. ...
Orlando, FL - February, 2016 - Individuals who engage intense physical activities, such as triathletes, often have a higher level of nutritional needs. This is why they need to practice a healthy diet and lifestyle. They may also consider using natural supplements to improve their overall health and avoid injuries.. Triathletes may potentially benefit from the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin. Both of these natural ingredients have been used over the years in fighting osteoarthritis, especially knee pain. Fortunately, there are supplements that contain both of these ingredients.. Multiple-stage competition, which involved swimming, cycling, and running, is typically the routine of triathletes. Knee pain is very common among triathletes due to the intense physical activity they are regularly engage in.. In an internet poll conducted by the runnersworld.com recently, it was found that 79.8 percent of individuals who took glucosamine and chondroitin experience significant improvements in ...

My name is Zack Hanline and I am 14 years old. On the evening of June 6, 2011, I jumped on my new bike (Note: It was a bicycle, not a 4-wheeler or dirt bike) to take a quick ride around my yard before dinner. I did not put my helmet on because I was only taking a short ride. What a huge mistake. I had no idea what a nightmare I would be living for the next week. I do not really remember the wreck that well, but I think my foot slipped off the pedal and in between the bars. Then the bike slammed me to the ground, and my head hit the road really hard.. My parents looked out the window of the house, and saw me lying on the ground by my bike. I did not respond when they yelled for me, because I was unconscious. They ...
On Sunday, 16 triathletes from Tri3 Sleaford Triathlon Club competed in the World Triathlon, Leeds, which represents the pinnacle of triathlon competition in the UK.
Nowhere is this trend more apparent than in the demise of what was once known as the winter road bike. In the old days (which I understand to be some time prior to 2005), one did not ride their good road bike year-round. Some time in the end of September, that bike would be put away and out would come the winter bike. Now, while there is no single definition of what that bike should be like, the general idea was two-fold: First, the winter bike should be both crappier and more robust than ones good road bike, due to the greater risk of damage by the elements as well as aggressive road saltings in winter. And second, it should be optimised for poor weather conditions. As far as frame material, this usually meant either heavy steel tubing or aluminum. And as far as components, this translated to either building the bike up as a fixed gear, or using an older, retired component group. Heavier, cheaper wheels with wider tires went on the bike in leu of summers good wheels with skinny tires. And ...

I also have a " decepticon" bike that is set up to look like a commuter with the saddle bags and all but its really a camouflaged race bike.

Q: Whats the difference between bikes that you sell and those at the big box discounters? They look the same. A: Big box stores sell plenty of bikes for less money than local bike shops. To the untrained eye, they look like the same thing youd find in a bike shop. Thats where the similarities end. Mass market bikes are cheaper because they come in only one size (yes, bikes are supposed to fit you - it makes them more comfortable to ride), use cheap parts that are heavy and dont hold an adjustment very long. Most importantly, they are not assembled using the proper tools nor or they assembled by trained mechanics. What many folks dont realize is that bicycles come to retailers un-assembled and need to be put together properly. Assembling bikes is not rocket science, but like any profession it requires a core level of knowledge to be competent. The point is you get what you pay for when it comes to most products. With bikes that is magnified. Cheap bikes are not bargains - theyre unsafe ...

AIM: We hypothesized that an extremely high pedal rate would induce much more type II muscle fibers recruitment even at an early phase of the same absolute work rate compared with normal pedal rates, and would result in changed amplitude of the pulmo
In contrast to the effects seen at 60 revs min-1, our experiments show that during exercise at 120 revs min-1 energy turnover was lower after muscle temperature had been elevated. In the schematic illustration shown in Fig. 5, a pedalling rate of 120 revs min-1 lies to the right of the optimum velocity for maximum efficiency under normal conditions (point c), i.e. on the descending right limb of the efficiency/velocity relationship. Consequently, the effect of heating the muscle, as shown by the dashed line, is to shift the efficiency/velocity relationship to the right so that optimum velocity occurs at a higher pedalling rate and efficiency at 120 revs min-1 (point d) is increased.. In this Discussion, we have been concerned with the effect of local heating on the energy turnover of the active muscles as a whole. Thus, changes in the efficiency/velocity relationship refer to a `global relationship of the involved muscles and the recruited fibres of those muscles that have diverse contractile ...

So you just got a sweet bike. One of those hip road bikes, you know? The ones with the downward-curving handlebars and the skinny wheels, to go with your skinny jeans. Youve got that messenger bag that sits high on your lower back when you cross it over your chest: maybe its recycled plastic, or maybe it has a revolutionary patch on it. You ride it to school now, even though you live five blocks away and walking never bothered you before. Now that youve got a bicycle, though, you cant imagine how you ever did it. And sometimes you ride it around the city, maybe even in the street, and you chain it to a variety of sign posts and structures, to make sure no one rides off with it or, god forbid, carry it away.. And now the question arises … helmet? No helmet?. PROS of the helmet:. -If you get hit by a moving vehicle, if you tend to run into parked cars or if you are a dare-devil and like to cross highways on your road bike, that helmet strapped tightly under your chin will absorb the impact ...

Nutritional Timing for Triathletes - Nutritional timing for triathletes is more important than you might think. Visit HowStuffWorks to learn all about nutritional timing for triathletes.
The purpose of this study was to compare physiological responses and perceived exertion among well-trained cyclists (n = 63) performing 3 different high-intensity interval-training (HIIT) prescriptions differing in work-bout duration and accumulated duration but all prescribed with maximal session effort. Subjects (male, mean ± SD 38 ± 8 y, VO2peak 62 ± 6 mL · kg-1 · min-1) completed up to 24 HIIT sessions over 12 wk as part of a training-intervention study. Sessions were prescribed as 4 × 16, 4 × 8, or 4 × 4 min with 2-min recovery periods (8 sessions of each prescription, balanced over time). Power output, HR, and RPE were collected during and after each work bout. Session RPE was reported after each session. Blood lactate samples were collected throughout the 12 wk. Physiological and perceptual responses during ,1400 training sessions were analyzed. HIIT sessions were performed at 95% ± 5%, 106% ± 5%, and 117% ± 6% of 40-min time-trial power during 4 × 16-, 4 × 8-, and 4 × 4-min ...

Amid all the negativity here - sounds like many commenters would prefer the status quo - Ill say that a 12 foot wide bike lane, as this effectively is, is a lot of space, plenty actually.. And I think mixing zones are actually safer than bike lanes that continue all the way to the intersection. With the latter sort of bike lane, when a driver arrives at the intersection intending to turn right, he has to looks in three places at once: to the left for cars crossing the intersection, to the right for pedestrians in or near the crosswalk, and behind him for cyclists in the bike lane. Drivers often dont do so well at multiple simultaneous tasks. Cyclists in the bike lane, for their part, tend to sail blithely through the intersection, trusting in their right of way, and get right hooked. With a mixing zone, the driver merges in to the zone before the intersection, and when he arrives at the intersection he only needs to look two ways: left and right. Cyclists have the slight inconvenience of ...

Bike lanes are both a blessing and a curse, and anybody that has done much commuting in urban environments has likely experienced both sides of that. On the blessing side, studies have demonstrated that bike lanes do, in fact, encourage more folks to ride. However, it may also create a false sense of security, and can even create greater danger in some situations. Here in US cities, most bike lanes are right in the "door zone" along parallel parked cars, causing cyclists to need to dart into traffic unexpectedly should a car door get opened in front of them. Couple that risk with the pretense of "Mandatory Use Laws" and the dark side of bike lanes shows itself.. New York cyclist Casey Neistat put together a video in response to a ticket he received for riding outside of the bike lane on a New York street. The video has taken off, due in large part to his rather dramatic demonstration of the utter absurdity of the uneducated interpretation of exactly what mandatory means. Heres to you Casey - ...
Ride2Survive is back for its 13th year, and is planning to raise $600,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society.. The ride takes cyclists from Kelowna to North Delta in one day, travelling in formation. Ride2Survive president Kerry Kunzli was one of the original riders back in 2004.. "Honestly, it sounded like a cool bike ride to do," Kunzli said. "The opposite has become true over time; its more about the fundraising than the ride.". As of Friday, June 16, the ride had raised more than $430,000, but a joint fundraiser that took place in the parking lot on Fraser Hwy and 188 Street in Clayton Heights raised that total by just over $12,000.. Together with Cops for Cancer, Ride2Survive hoists two people up into the air for 50 hours in an attempt to raise awareness and funds. This past weekends willing victims: DPD Sgt. Ray Hudson and DPD Const. Sukhi Thind.. "We just wanted to do something special close to retirement and just give back a little bit," Hudson said. Hudson is part of Cops for Cancer, and ...

Jonathan says that I should be on the cautious side on the bike: after all this is double the distance of a Half Ironman (duh!). My Achilles heel is heat and humidity tolerance and I have had a couple of races where I have overdone it and ended up suffering at the hands of the dreaded cramps. On the other hand, if I dont push it too hard, the run has every possibility of being fast and, perhaps more importantly, actually enjoyable in a sort of Ironman kind of way. All the same, Im still not as confident with my heart rate zones and exertion on the bike so the idea is to not strictly adhere to a pulse rate but to go by feeling to some extent. Being prudent, this feeling should correspond to about a quarter way between AeT (128 bpm) and AT (156 bpm), or about 135 bpm - or, in reference to my training, half way between where I did 90% of my rides and the medium intensity (CMED). There are a couple of small hills on the course, which are pathetic by Madrid standards but can, nevertheless, send ...

This is the exercise bike and video screen that simulate riding a mountain bike through outdoor courses. Users pedal and steer the bike to control a computer-generated cyclist on the 17 color LCD monitor and compete against other virtual cyclists on one of 80 outdoor courses, including a serpentine desert course and an undulating highland track. The bikes electronically controlled pedaling resistance automatically increases or decreases to replicate the terrain gradients shown on the screen and sensors in the bike saddle monitor whether the user is sitting or standing and the computer-generated cyclist assumes the same posture.
In late March, Zoe asked me to go to the bike store to look at bikes. Shed been outgrowing her 16″ bike which she rides well. I had raised the seat but then the handlebars were too low. Of course, Mia also chimed in with, "I want a new bike too!" That wasnt part of my original plan. She was on track to stay on the balance bike a while longer and then get Zoes 16″ hand-me-down.. For historical reference, Zoe could ride her Skuut balance bike the mile to their daycare before I got her the 16″ "pedal bike" which was in the spring after she turned 4. We skipped training wheels. The 16″ bike was a little too big. She could pedal right away and balance and steer but it took her a while to be able to start and stop with confidence and she went back and forth between the balance bike and the pedal bike for more than a year before things clicked on the pedal bike.. On that shopping day, I ended up getting Zoe a 20″ bike with hand brakes and gears. It seems like she is a really big kid all of ...
Background and aims: Despite improvements in cardiovascular health and wellbeing, fear of exercise-induced hypoglycaemia and a paucity of evidence-based advice on how to manage diabetes during / after exercise remain significant barriers to exercise participation to people with Type 1 diabetes (T1DM). How professional athletes with T1DM manage their diabetes may provide an insight into optimising diabetes control around exercise. The present study examined glucose control in elite and recreational cyclists with and without T1DM during participation in the 2014 mHealth grand tour cycle ride from Brussels to Barcelona (EASD).. Materials and methods: Interstitial glucose (IG) concentrations were captured using continuous glucose monitoring (Dexcom G4®, INC, CA, USA) over a period of six consecutive days during a long-distance, multi-stage endurance cycling event in three groups of individuals: 10 recreationally-active type 1 diabetes individuals (T1rec), 8 elite cyclists with T1DM (T1pro), and 10 ...
Providing athletes with such gifts has been part of CAFs mission since its first fundraiser in 1994. But this weekends camp started with a very specific vision to offer the athletes more in the way of instruction. "I realized at the championships in New York that people still had so many questions for me," said Peter Harsch, 14-year CAF volunteer and director of prosthetics for the U.S. Navy. "Even the champs had questions almost like a first timers. Triathlon is scary for most of us, can you imagine having no arms, no legs?". A conference call and a few months later, Harsch had a unique training camp on the table: one he says "brings together all of the pieces of the pie-mentorship, fit-certified bike fitting, Olympic swim coaches, and more." He said the camp has also been stamped as the official paratriathlon camp for USA Triathlon.. Roy Perkins, Senior Director of Programs at CAF, jumped on the idea. Hed wanted to do such a camp for a long time, for the obvious reasons of helping the ...

Any part of town that doesnt have bike share, and 85% of Portland doesnt, many living there see the program as an elitist rich white tourist project, a huge waste of $6 million in various government funds and maintenance that could have been better spent on other needed bike projects. …" hampsten.

From the time the idea for bike share for Portland was first raised, I had plenty of questions about whether it would able to provide a functional travel service worth the investment. I dont particularly like that the bikes and stands add to the clutter on the sidewalks…but cities including Portland, do have big challenges meeting everyones travel needs..

This bike is a great green transport concept as it works on electricity and its batteries can be recharged - making it a zero-emission vehicle.. The battery, upon getting fully recharged, can last for 20 km. The bike comes with LED rear and front lights, interchangeable wheels and an adjustable seat. The Kevlar belt chain in the bike is also very easy to maintain as greasing is not required. The Audi Electric Bike is still at the conceptual stage, but maybe Audi (the car manufacturer) might notice the idea and make Karimis concept an official product befitting the Audi brand.. ...

Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) added to exercise training (ET) improves the intensity at which patients with COPD can exercise. However, there are no data showing NIV added to ET improves health-related quality of life (HRQoL) or clinical parameters in patients with chronic respiratory failure (CRF) secondary to either obstructive or restrictive lung disease. Vitacca et al. (Respirology 2018;23.2:182- 189) investigated whether adding NIV during ET could increase the 6 min walking distance (6MWD) compared with ET alone in patients with CRF already treated with home NIV. The trial was powered based on a doubling of the effect of ET on 6MWD with additional NIV. Fifty patients with COPD or a restrictive lung disease were randomly assigned to ET with NIV (delivered at their home NIV settings) or ET alone. All patients underwent 20 sessions of cycle training over a 3 week period. The 6MWD improved above the minimum clinically important difference (MCID=25 m) in both groups (ET+NIV: 299 to 344 m ...
The first few rides on the bike I kept the tubes in the wheels and rode on Vittoria Corsa 28mm open tubulars. To say the ride was smooth is an understatement. The bike practically floats over rough roads and small bumps. The first real test was on the Bicycle Ranch Tucson Roundup Saturday ride. This ride gives you every opportunity to test all elements of a bike. Sprint power, climbing, rough roads and fatigue. When the first sprint came and I stood on the pedals there was loss of power or softness often associated with an endurance frame. There was a ton of snap and response just like the Evo. Even with disc wheels the acceleration was noticeable and the wheels while maybe not my favorite hoops, held speed as well. On the climb the bike was also responsive and light under me. After having been on the Aluminum CAAD 12 for the last couple of months, I could feel how plush the carbon frame was under me. By the top of the climb I still felt fresh and in fact had been able to stay with the front of ...
I was trying to HDFU. ;) I rode 16.2 miles, my longest ride by 4 miles, took a day off for rain, and then rode another 16.4 miles. The last mile was very uncomfortable on my rear end and I could not find a happy place on my seat. My right foot was also numbing up. That evening I felt jagged and uncomfortable and had a hard time getting to sleep. The next day (yesterday) I felt exhausted. I went for a short walk and that was it. Better this morning but I only rode 4 miles. Felt generally uncomfortable on my bike. My muscles never feel the rides but it is a case where my whole body just feels beat up. I dont know how much of the issue is the calorie restrictions of my diet. I am finding it hard to stick to my 1200 calories and have shot over a couple of times. But the weight is slowly falling off so I think that I am OK on the eating end ...
PhD in Information Technology and Electrical Engineering PhD Student: XXIX Cycle Training and Research Activities Report First Year Tutor: Diego di Bernardo co- Tutor: Mario di Bernardo 1. Information
General thoughts on older bicycles:. Just like a car, a bicycle is assembled from a group of components. The frame is what holds all these components together and gives the bike its primary qualities. Most frames are made out of durable steel alloys, treated and finished with either special chemicals or coated in industrial pigments to keep off the rust (and, of course, to make it look pretty). Therefore its not unusual to see a frame which was hand-made in England in the 1940s still out riding today, as nice as the day it rolled off the factory floor.. Given the durability of bicycle frames, refurbished bikes are the natural answer to the problem of getting people with limited budgets on bikes. When rebuilt with modern components, a thirty year old frame can be indistinguishable from a frame built yesterday. Obviously, this is over-stating the case a little bit, since modern machining processes and alloys have improved the overall quality of frames, but these differences are for bike nerds ...
Spin bikes offer two types of resistance; belt driven resistance and magnetic resistance.. Belt driven resistance. This type of resistance is often found in very basic models of workout bikes. They have a chain or a belt that joins the pedals and the crank and the resistance is often variable and not fixed. You can adjust the resistance by turning the knob. Belt driven bikes are good for beginners and intermediate level cyclists. You can start with no resistance and as soon as your body gets adjusted to it, you can slowly use the knob to make your workouts more challenging each day. Belt-driven machines do require some maintenance as the pedals start wearing out due to friction. But, belt-driven spinning exercise bikes are very affordable, so you wont mind changing the brake pads once a year depending on your usage.. If you are buying used spin bikes make sure you check the brake pads for signs of wear and tear and, if required, get the pads changed before using it.. Magnetic resistance. These ...

There is a movie-I Am-by Tom Shadyac that began as a quest to understand the emptiness of his own life in the wake of a devastating bicycle accident. Toms recovery was a very difficult and painful process that left him laid up and very lonely.. The good news is that Tom had a lot of time on his hands to think about his circumstances. Contemplation about certain realities of his life piqued Toms curiosity and his desire to understand the bigger picture so he set out with a small crew and a camera to do some research.. Toms journey introduced him to something called HeartMath, with a fascinating scene in the lab with Rollin McCraty, Ph.D., of the HeartMath Institute. What is HeartMath?. According to the HeartMath website, "HeartMath is a unique system of rigorous scientific research, validated techniques, leading-edge products and programs and advanced technologies for people interested in personal development and improved emotional, mental and physical health. HeartMath is internationally ...
Background: Optic nerve avulsion (ONA) is an uncommon presentation of ocular trauma. It is characterized by traumatic disinsertion of the nerve fibres from the globe. ONA can occur completely or partially. We report the long-term follow-up in children with ONA due to traumatic events. The remarkable differences in course and outcome may elucidate the spectrum associated to ONA.. Methods: During the last fifteen years, three children with ONA were referred to our clinic. These case reports are presented with special attention to the long-term follow-up.. Results: Two patients suffered from complete ONA after head injury. The third patient presented with a partial ONA caused by a bicycle accident. Long-term follow-up of the patients varied between seven and fifteen years. In the first patient, a pale swollen retina without any visible retinal vasculature initially occurred. The retina completely detached in the course. In the second patient, extended fibroglial scarring occurred. The enormous ...
Moving forward into a new realm of design, Transition Bikes has completely revamped the existing Covert all mountain bike to create a new 6" travel quiver-killing bike capable of more aggressive riding. The new Covert sports a refined frame at the same weight as the old model, but is significantly stronger. The new frame comes in at a respectable 6.7 lbs without rear shock, and builds up to a 28-32 lb bike made for efficient long days in the saddle. At the core of the Covert is a completely new proprietary tubeset designed by Transition Bikes. The new tubes create a stronger frame with better contact points for welding shock mounts, pivots, and the headtube. In addition to the new tubes Transition has created a one piece CNCd rocker link to increase stiffness and strength, as well as new dropouts and chainstay/seatstay yokes. All these new features not only add to the aesthetics of the bike but increase strength while shedding weight.. Rear suspension is handled by the Fox RP23 large volume or ...

At just 11 miles long, the Mineral Tramways Coast to Coast is one of the shortest coast to coast rides you can do in the UK. Almost the entire route is traffic free.. Over the summer holidays, while I was in Cornwall, I took the opportunity to ride the route.. As we were close to Portreath, this is where we started the ride. Portreath itself is nice enough, but you can start the ride from near the Elm Farm Cycles camp site and cafe. Elm Farm also provide cycle hire if youve not arrived with your own bike.. After a short section on a path next to the road, we turned off and things quickly got fairly bumpy. The ride is fine on a touring bike, a hybrid or a mountain bike, but its a little tricky on a road bike. Having said that, my girlfriend was on a road bike. Its fine, as long as you dont mind the shaky handlebars and bumpy ride.. As the Sustrans name of the route suggests, the area has a rich mining heritage. Any ore extracted would be transported along the route and to the ports. To this ...
Philly-style is to put in a mixing-zone at each intersection where cars could turn through the bike lane, to avoid the right hook you mention by way of a 10-yard merge. Our other buffered bike-lanes mostly lack the turn arrows in the mixing area, so for example if the bike lane is on the right, a car turning right through the bike lane on those lanes generally does so from the traffic lane on the left, making a hook more likely. These arrows make it clearer that the mixing should take place. The bikes need to know that the right-turn-only doesnt apply to them, which is entirely obvious, and a lesser evil than routinizing right turns from the left lane. ...
Ottawas downtown area is an exciting part of the city. It is packed with business, entertainment, restaurants and history. Its a busy area and travelling through the citys core can be difficult at times. The answer for a safe and comfortable commute is to cycle on the new Laurier Avenue Segregated Bike Lanes.. Whether for business or pleasure, cycling is a healthy choice for both you and the environment. Its also an affordable choice for people of all ages.. The City of Ottawa is building the first downtown segregated bike lanes in Ontario - another important step on the path to becoming a greener and more sustainable city.. Painted bike lanes are available throughout the city but busy streets with lots of traffic can be intimidating for some people. We have learned from other cities that bicycle lanes separated from motor vehicles provides comfort and safety for all road users.. Now, new segregated bike lanes have been installed on both sides of Laurier Avenue in opposite directions between ...
