Experiment of nitrox saturation diving with trimix excursion. (1/2601)

Depth limitations to diving operation with air as the breathing gas are well known: air density, oxygen toxicity, nitrogen narcosis and requirement for decompression. The main objectives of our experiment were to assess the decompression, counterdiffusion and performance aspect of helium-nitrogen-oxygen excursions from nitrox saturation. The experiment was carried out in a wet diving stimulator with "igloo" attached to a 2-lock living chamber. Four subjects of two teams of 2 divers were saturated at 25 msw simulated depth in a nitrogen oxygen chamber environment for 8 days, during which period they performed 32 divers-excursions to 60 or 80 msw pressure. Excursion gas mix was trimix of 14.6% oxygen, 50% helium and 35.4% nitrogen, which gave a bottom oxygen partial pressure of 1.0 bars at 60 msw and 1.3 at 80 msw. Excursions were for 70 min at 60 msw with three 10-min work periods and 40 min at 80 msw with two 10-min work periods. Work was on a bicycle ergometer at a moderate level. We calculated the excursion decompression with M-Values based on methods of Hamilton (Hamilton et al., 1990). Staged decompression took 70 min for the 60 msw excursion and 98 min for 80 msw, with stops beginning at 34 or 43 msw respectively. After the second dive day bubbles were heard mainly in one diver but in three divers overall, to Spencer Grade III some times. No symptoms were reported. Saturation decompression using the Repex procedures began at 40 msw and was uneventful: Grade II and sometimes III bubbles persisted in 2 of the four divers until 24 hr after surfacing. We conclude that excursions with mixture rich in helium can be performed effectively to as deep as 80 msw using these procedures.  (+info)

Development of a 12-min treadmill walk test at a self-selected pace for the evaluation of cardiorespiratory fitness in adult men. (2/2601)

The direct measurement of true maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) and oxygen uptake corresponding to anaerobic threshold (VO2AT) is not always practical, especially in middle age and older populations. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to develop a simple test that could accurately estimate cardiorespiratory fitness using a submaximal treadmill walking protocol for middle age, older, sedentary individuals and patients with chronic disease. Subjects for this study were 42 men (44.9 +/- 15.7 years), which included 17 patients with coronary heart disease (57.0 +/- 9.6 years). VO2peak and VO2AT were measured using a treadmill protocol (VO2peak; 38.4 +/- 11.6 ml/kg/min, VO2AT; 22.9 +/- 7.4 ml/kg/min). This simple test assessed the total distance covered in 12 minutes on the treadmill at an intensity corresponding to either 1) 11 on the Borg scale of ratings of perceived exertion (RPE11), 2) 13 on the Borg scale of ratings of perceived exertion (RPE13), or 3) "Optimal" by subjective judgment. The correlation coefficients between VO2peak or VO2AT and total distance at the three intensities (RPE11; 950 +/- 100 m, RPE13; 1080 +/- 140 m Optimal; 1050 +/- 110 m) were statistically significant, ranging from 0.72 to 0.85. The test-retest reliability coefficient on 12 subjects was 0.98. The oxygen uptake (VO2) was measured during the three walk tests on 15 subjects. There were no significant changes in submaximal VO2 values from min 4 to min 12 (RPE11; 19.8 +/- 4.7 ml/kg/min, RPE13; 24.1 +/- 4.9 ml/kg/min, Optimal; 23.1 +/- 4.8 ml/kg/min) in any of the three tests. Similarly, the three submaximal VO2 values did not differ from the VO2AT value (21.2 +/- 8.3 ml/kg/min) obtained in the initial maximal test. These results suggest that the 12-min submaximal treadmill walk test (STWT) is a valid method for the assessment of VO2peak and VO2AT. Therefore, the STWT could be a useful performance test for evaluating cardiorespiratory fitness in middle age, older, sedentary individuals and patients with chronic disease.  (+info)

Increased orthostatic tolerance following moderate exercise training in patients with unexplained syncope. (3/2601)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether a programme of simple, moderate exercise training increases blood volume and improves orthostatic tolerance in patients with attacks of syncope or near syncope related to orthostatic stress. DESIGN: An open study in 14 patients referred with unexplained attacks of syncope, who were shown to have a low tolerance to an orthostatic stress test. Measurements were made of plasma and blood volumes, orthostatic tolerance to a test of combined head up tilt and lower body suction, and baroreceptor sensitivity by applying subatmospheric pressures to a chamber over the neck. Cardiorespiratory fitness was assessed from the relation between heart rate and oxygen uptake during a graded treadmill exercise test. Assessments were made before and after undertaking an exercise training programme (Canadian Air Force 5BX/XBX). RESULTS: After the training period, 12 of the 14 patients showed evidence of improved cardiorespiratory fitness. All 12 patients were symptomatically improved; they showed increases in plasma and blood volumes and in orthostatic tolerance, and decreases in baroreceptor sensitivity. Despite the improved orthostatic tolerance, values of blood pressure both while supine and initially following tilting were lower than before training. CONCLUSIONS: Exercise training has a role in the management of patients with syncope and poor orthostatic tolerance. It improves symptoms and increases orthostatic tolerance without increasing resting blood pressure.  (+info)

Resistance training affects GLUT-4 content in skeletal muscle of humans after 19 days of head-down bed rest. (4/2601)

This study assessed the effects of inactivity on GLUT-4 content of human skeletal muscle and evaluated resistance training as a countermeasure to inactivity-related changes in GLUT-4 content in skeletal muscle. Nine young men participated in the study. For 19 days, four control subjects remained in a -6 degrees head-down tilt at all times throughout bed rest, except for showering every other day. Five training group subjects also remained at bed rest, except during resistance training once in the morning. The resistance training consisted of 30 isometric maximal voluntary contractions for 3 s each; leg-press exercise was used to recruit the extensor muscles of the ankle, knee, and hip. Pauses (3 s) were allowed between bouts of maximal contraction. Muscle biopsy samples were obtained from the lateral aspect of vastus lateralis (VL) muscle before and after the bed rest. GLUT-4 content in VL muscle of the control group was significantly decreased after bed rest (473 +/- 48 vs. 398 +/- 66 counts. min-1. microgram membrane protein-1, before and after bed rest, respectively), whereas GLUT-4 significantly increased in the training group with bed rest (510 +/- 158 vs. 663 +/- 189 counts. min-1. microgram membrane protein-1, before and after bed rest, respectively). The present study demonstrated that GLUT-4 in VL muscle decreased by approximately 16% after 19 days of bed rest, and isometric resistance training during bed rest induced a 30% increase above the value of GLUT-4 before bed rest.  (+info)

Influence of body temperature on the development of fatigue during prolonged exercise in the heat. (5/2601)

We investigated whether fatigue during prolonged exercise in uncompensable hot environments occurred at the same critical level of hyperthermia when the initial value and the rate of increase in body temperature are altered. To examine the effect of initial body temperature [esophageal temperature (Tes) = 35.9 +/- 0.2, 37.4 +/- 0. 1, or 38.2 +/- 0.1 (SE) degrees C induced by 30 min of water immersion], seven cyclists (maximal O2 uptake = 5.1 +/- 0.1 l/min) performed three randomly assigned bouts of cycle ergometer exercise (60% maximal O2 uptake) in the heat (40 degrees C) until volitional exhaustion. To determine the influence of rate of heat storage (0.10 vs. 0.05 degrees C/min induced by a water-perfused jacket), four cyclists performed two additional exercise bouts, starting with Tes of 37.0 degrees C. Despite different initial temperatures, all subjects fatigued at an identical level of hyperthermia (Tes = 40. 1-40.2 degrees C, muscle temperature = 40.7-40.9 degrees C, skin temperature = 37.0-37.2 degrees C) and cardiovascular strain (heart rate = 196-198 beats/min, cardiac output = 19.9-20.8 l/min). Time to exhaustion was inversely related to the initial body temperature: 63 +/- 3, 46 +/- 3, and 28 +/- 2 min with initial Tes of approximately 36, 37, and 38 degrees C, respectively (all P < 0.05). Similarly, with different rates of heat storage, all subjects reached exhaustion at similar Tes and muscle temperature (40.1-40.3 and 40. 7-40.9 degrees C, respectively), but with significantly different skin temperature (38.4 +/- 0.4 vs. 35.6 +/- 0.2 degrees C during high vs. low rate of heat storage, respectively, P < 0.05). Time to exhaustion was significantly shorter at the high than at the lower rate of heat storage (31 +/- 4 vs. 56 +/- 11 min, respectively, P < 0.05). Increases in heart rate and reductions in stroke volume paralleled the rise in core temperature (36-40 degrees C), with skin blood flow plateauing at Tes of approximately 38 degrees C. These results demonstrate that high internal body temperature per se causes fatigue in trained subjects during prolonged exercise in uncompensable hot environments. Furthermore, time to exhaustion in hot environments is inversely related to the initial temperature and directly related to the rate of heat storage.  (+info)

Evidence of O2 supply-dependent VO2 max in the exercise-trained human quadriceps. (6/2601)

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)

Cardiorespiratory fitness, body composition, and all-cause and cardiovascular disease mortality in men. (7/2601)

BACKGROUND: Cardiorespiratory fitness and body fatness are both related to health, but their interrelation to all-cause and cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality is unknown. OBJECTIVE: We examined the health benefits of leanness and the hazards of obesity while simultaneously considering cardiorespiratory fitness. DESIGN: This was an observational cohort study. We followed 21925 men, aged 30-83 y, who had a body-composition assessment and a maximal treadmill exercise test. There were 428 deaths (144 from CVD, 143 from cancer, and 141 from other causes) in an average of 8 y of follow-up (176742 man-years). RESULTS: After adjustment for age, examination year, cigarette smoking, alcohol intake, and parental history of ischemic heart disease, unfit (low cardiorespiratory fitness as determined by maximal exercise testing), lean men had double the risk of all-cause mortality of fit, lean men (relative risk: 2.07; 95% CI: 1.16, 3.69; P = 0.01). Unfit, lean men also had a higher risk of all-cause and CVD mortality than did men who were fit and obese. We observed similar results for fat and fat-free mass in relation to mortality. Unfit men had a higher risk of all-cause and CVD mortality than did fit men in all fat and fat-free mass categories. Similarly, unfit men with low waist girths (<87 cm) had greater risk of all-cause mortality than did fit men with high waist girths (> or =99 cm). CONCLUSIONS: The health benefits of leanness are limited to fit men, and being fit may reduce the hazards of obesity.  (+info)

Neighborhood safety and the prevalence of physical inactivity--selected states, 1996. (8/2601)

Physical inactivity is an important risk factor for premature morbidity and mortality, especially among high-risk populations. Although health-promotion programs have targeted high-risk groups (i.e., older adults, women, and racial/ethnic minorities), barriers exist that may affect their physical activity level. Identifying and reducing specific barriers (e.g., lack of knowledge of the health benefits of physical activity, limited access to facilities, low self-efficacy, and environmental issues [2-6]) are important for efforts designed to increase physical activity. Concerns about neighborhood safety may be a barrier to physical activity. To characterize the association between neighborhood safety and physical inactivity, CDC analyzed data from the 1996 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) in Maryland, Montana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. This report summarizes the results of this analysis, which indicate that persons who perceived their neighborhood to be unsafe were more likely to be physically inactive.  (+info)

To examine the reliability of a set of health-related physical fitness tests used in the European Union-funded Healthy Lifestyle in Europe by Nutrition in Adolescence (HELENA) Study on lifestyle and nutrition among adolescents. A set of physical fitness tests was performed twice in a study sample, 2 weeks apart, by the same researchers. A total of 123 adolescents (69 males and 54 females, aged 13.6±0.8 years) from 10 European cities participated in the study. Flexibility, muscular fitness, speed/agility and aerobic capacity were tested using the back-saver sit and reach, handgrip, standing broad jump, Bosco jumps (squat jump, counter movement jump and Abalakov jump), bent arm hang, 4 × 10 m shuttle run, and 20-m shuttle run tests. The ANOVA analysis showed that neither systematic bias nor sex differences were found for any of the studied tests, except for the back-saver sit and reach test, in which a borderline significant sex difference was observed (P=0.044).

Individuals with insulin resistance and low cardiorespiratory fitness are frequently found to have an increased waist circumference and high exercise blood pressure. We tested the hypothesis that the relationships among insulin resistance, low cardiorespiratory fitness, and increased exercise blood pressure may be mediated by an elevated waist circumference. This study included 317 apparently healthy men and women (mean age: 34.8±12.8 years; mean body mass index: 26.1±5.2 kg/m2). Exercise blood pressure values were measured using a submaximal ergometer test evaluating physical working capacity. Plasma insulin and glucose levels were measured during a 3-hour oral glucose tolerance test. Multivariate regression analyses showed that waist circumference accounted for 32.8% (P,0.0001) and 45.1% (P,0.0001) of the variance in exercise systolic blood pressure in men and women, respectively. Participants were classified into tertiles according to either insulin response, measured during the oral ...
The BCT Squadrons had their official Physical Fitness Test (PFT) this week. The one they did earlier in BCT-1 was so that they knew what the test entailed and for them to evaluate their fitness, allowing them to work on their weaker areas.. As a Cadet at the United States Air Force Academy, they will take physical fitness tests each semester to measure their overall strength and conditioning. Proficiency is required in both the Physical Fitness Test (PFT) and the Aerobic Fitness Test (AFT). Cadets are required to take both the AFT and PFT each semester of their cadet career..

OBJECTIVE-The purpose of this study was to examine differences in novel markers of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in women with type 2 diabetes stratified according to cardiorespiratory fitness.. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS-A total of 28 women (mean age 57 ± 6 years) with type 2 diabetes who were free from overt CVD were placed into low cardiorespiratory fitness (LCF) or average cardiorespiratory fitness (ACF) groups based on a graded exercise test to exhaustion. A group of eight women without type 2 diabetes were also examined and served as healthy control subjects. The median V˙o2peak value was used as a cutoff for group determination. We assessed both conventional CVD risk factors, including blood pressure, BMI, and lipid profile, as well as novel CVD risk factors, such as left ventricular filling dynamics, arterial stiffness, fasting insulin, and C-reactive protein (CRP).. RESULTS-V˙o2peak values were 69 ± 14 and 91 ± 24% of predicted values for sedentary age-matched healthy individuals ...

The goal of this study was to investigate differences in physical fitness and sports participation over 2 years in children with relatively high, average, and low motor competence. Physical fitness and gross motor coordination of 501 children between 6-10 years were measured at baseline and baseline+2 years. The sample compromised 2 age cohorts: 6.00-7.99 and 8.00-9.99 years. An age and sex-specific motor quotient at baseline testing was used to subdivide these children into low (MQ , P33), average (P33 ≤ MQ , P66) and high (MQ ≥ P66) motor competence groups. Measures of sports participation were obtained through a physical activity questionnaire in 278 of the same children. Repeated Measures MANCOVA and two separate ANOVAs were used to analyze differences in changes in physical fitness and measures of sports participation respectively. Children with high motor competence scored better on physical fitness tests and participated in sports more often. Since physical fitness levels between ...
It has been shown that it is possible to modify macronutrient oxidation, physical fitness and resting energy expenditure (REE) by changes in diet composition. Furthermore, mitochondrial oxidation can be significantly increased by a diet with a low glycemic index. The purpose of our trial was to compare the effects of a vegetarian (V) and conventional diet (C) with the same caloric restriction (−500 kcal/day) on physical fitness and REE after 12 weeks of diet plus aerobic exercise in 74 patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D). An open, parallel, randomized study design was used. All meals were provided for the whole study duration. An individualized exercise program was prescribed to the participants and was conducted under supervision. Physical fitness was measured by spiroergometry and indirect calorimetry was performed at the start and after 12 weeks Repeated-measures ANOVA (Analysis of variance) models with between-subject (group) and within-subject (time) factors and interactions were used for
The United States Marine Corps requires that all Marines perform a Physical Fitness Test (PFT) and a Combat Fitness Test (CFT) once per calendar year. Each test must have an interval of 6 months (same standards apply for reservists). The PFT ensures that Marines are keeping physically fit and in a state of physical readiness. It consists of pull-ups or push-ups, crunches and a 3-mile run. On 1 October 2008 the Marine Corps introduced the additional pass/fail Combat Fitness Test (CFT) to the fitness requirements. The CFT is designed to measure abilities demanded of Marines in a war zone. For this test, Marines choose to either perform pull-ups or push-ups. However, the maximum score is only attainable if pull-ups are chosen. The pull-ups may be done with either an overhand (pronated) grip or an underhand (supinated) chin-up grip. Changes in grip are allowed as long as the feet dont touch the ground and only the hands come in contact with the pull-up bar. The pull-up begins at the dead-hang ...

All Rights Reserved.Objective: epidemiological and experimental evidence suggest the role of muscular strength has been increasingly recognized in the prevention of chronic disease in early life, and features of the cardiometabolic disease have also been negatively associated with muscle strength in adulthood. The aim of this study was to examine whether the association between muscular fitness and physical health status among children and adolescents from Bogotá, Colombia. Methods: cross-sectional study in 921 schoolchildren aged 8-11 years from Bogotá, Colombia. A muscular fitness score (MFS) was measured using handgrip strength and standing long jump and vertical jump. Each of these variables was standardized as follows: standardized value = (value = mean)/SD. The muscle fitness score was calculated as the mean of the three standardized scores. MFS was recoded into quartiles Q1 (low fitness) to Q4 (high fitness). The body mass index (BMI), skinfold thickness, waist and hip circumference, ...
BackgroundThe association between physical fitness performance tests and anthropometric indices is not clear. The study aims to explore the association between physical fitness performance and anthropometric indices in Taiwanese community-dwelling adults. This may help in monitoring anthropometric indices to improve physical fitness.MethodsWe recruited 2216 participants aged 23-64 years between 2014 and 2017. Physical fitness performance, including abdominal muscular endurance (60-s sit-up test), flexibility (sit-and-reach test), and cardiorespiratory endurance (3-min step test), was evaluated in all participants. The association of the physical fitness performance and anthropometric indices, including body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), and waist-to-height ratio (WHtR), was analyzed using linear regression, with adjustments for age and gender.ResultsBody mass index was negatively associated with abdominal muscular endurance (p p 2.

Physical fitness is a powerful marker of health in youth. Studies in adolescents and adults suggest that higher fat mass is related to worse physical fitness. However, there is limited knowledge whether fat mass and fat-free mass are associated with physical fitness already in preschoolers. Baseline data from the MINISTOP (Mobile-based INtervention Intended to STop Obesity in Preschoolers) trial was utilized for this cross-sectional analysis. Body composition was assessed using air-displacement plethysmography. Fat mass index [fat mass (kg)/height(2) (m)] and fat-free mass index [fat-free mass (kg)/height(2) (m)] were used to provide height-adjusted measures of body composition. Physical fitness was measured using the PREFIT (FITness testing in PREschool children) battery, which assesses cardiorespiratory fitness, upper-body and lower-body muscular strength as well as motor fitness. In total, this study included 303 children (168 boys and 135 girls), who were on average 4.48 +/- 0.15 years old. ...

The aim was to investigate whether there was an association between amino acid (AA) intake and physical fitness and if so, to assess whether this association was independent of carbohydrates intake. European adolescents (n = 1481, 12.5-17.5 years) were measured. Intake was assessed via two non-consecutive 24-h dietary recalls. Lower and upper limbs muscular fitness was assessed by standing long jump and handgrip strength tests, respectively. Cardiorespiratory fitness was assessed by the 20-m shuttle run test. Physical activity was objectively measured. Socioeconomic status was obtained via questionnaires. Lower limbs muscular fitness seems to be positively associated with tryptophan, histidine and methionine intake in boys, regardless of centre, age, socioeconomic status, physical activity and total energy intake (model 1). However, these associations disappeared once carbohydrates intake was controlled for (model 2). In girls, only proline intake seems to be positively associated with lower limbs

PhD ceremony: Ms. A. Waninge, 16.15 uur, Academiegebouw, Broerstraat 5, Groningen Title: Measuring physical fitness in persons with severe or profound intellectual and multiple disabilities Promotor(s): prof. C.P. van der Schans, prof. B. Steenbergen Faculty: Medical Sciences The purpose of this research was to examine the feasibility, validity and test-retest reliability of physical fitness tests for persons with severe and profound intellectual and visual (multiple) disabilities. The main products of this thesis are feasible, valid and reliable tests of physical fitness for these persons, which are ready to be implemented into daily practice. An important finding is that disabled persons are able to learn and become accustomed to test and measurement situations under the condition that an optimal test environment is created. The development of specific physical activity programmes is crucial to improve both mental and physical health, wellbeing, participation and the quality of life of people ...
BACKGROUND: To date, there has been no standardized approach to the assessment of aerobic fitness among children who harbor parasites. In quantifying the disability associated with individual or multiple chronic infections, accurate measures of physical fitness are important metrics. This is because exercise intolerance, as seen with anemia and many other chronic disorders, reflects the bodys inability to maintain adequate oxygen supply (VO(2) max) to the motor tissues, which is frequently linked to reduced quality-of-life in terms of physical and job performance. The objective of our study was to examine the associations between polyparasitism, anemia, and reduced fitness in a high risk Kenyan population using novel implementation of the 20-meter shuttle run test (20mSRT), a well-standardized, low-technology physical fitness test. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Four villages in coastal Kenya were surveyed during 2009-2010. Children 5-18 years were tested for infection with Schistosoma ...

While men who were physically active had fewer strokes, cardiorespiratory fitness was shown to be a more reliable predictor of stroke risk. Researchers analyzed data on 45,706 men aged 18 to 100 years, grouped as having low, moderate or high levels of cardiorespiratory fitness as measured by a maximal treadmill exercise test.. Based on self-reported information, participants were deemed as sedentary, walker-jogger-runners, or sports participants. The study was controlled for age, cholesterol levels, diabetes, smoking, alcohol use and family history of cardiovascular disease.. The rate of fatal stroke among low-fit men was 3.2 per 10,000 man-years, compared with 2.0 for both moderately and highly fit men. Non-fatal stroke rates were 10.8, 8.9 and 6.4 for low, moderate and high fitness levels, respectively. Incidence of total stroke showed a strong inverse relationship with increasing levels of fitness. While men who ran, jogged, walked or played sports tended to have higher fitness levels, ...
Several population-based studies have demonstrated a robust relationship between obesity and AF (3). Modifiers of this association such as weight loss have been shown to reduce AF recurrence (6,16). Physical activity has previously been suggested to mitigate some of the cardiovascular hazards associated with excess body weight (17,18). However, the relationship between physical activity and AF is highly contentious (18,19) because it is mostly based on the results from population-based longitudinal studies with self-reported data (18,20). Recent studies have suggested that increased leisure time physical activity may be protective against AF even in the presence of obesity (8,21). In the current study, we used objective measures of cardiorespiratory fitness to demonstrate the prognostic benefits in patients with symptomatic AF. This remains significant even after adjustment for change in BMI observed throughout the follow-up. Our results suggest that cardiorespiratory fitness may partially ...
Background: Relationships between excess body fat, body fat distribution, and body proportions with physical fitness are important to explore because emphasis is placed on monitoring these health markers during interventions aimed at improving child health. It is known that physical activity and therefore cardiorespiratory fitness are essential for health and life. Therefore can improved physical functionality such as an ability to run 550 m, a measure of cardiorespiratory fitness, be inferred from anthropometric measures in children? There was no published evidence for children on the relationship of the waist to height ratio; a measure of abdominal fatness, in relation to cardiorespiratory fitness. Furthermore the external and relatively fixed influence of ethnicity and social deprivation on physical fitness and interrelations with body fatness are rarely examined together. Explorations undertaken in this body of work aimed to increase the understanding of the relationships of anthropometric ...
Findings from our longitudinal study demonstrate that both fitness and activity are inversely associated with the development of hypertension over 20 years. As estimated by the preventive fraction, achieving higher fitness by category could theoretically prevent more cases of incident hypertension. Clinical trials indicate that increasing physical activity is an important hypertension prevention behavior15,16⇓; however, it is possible that the behavior is only protective if activity levels are adequate to improve fitness. Activity was only significantly inversely associated with the development of hypertension among participants in the highest fitness category, although that heterogeneity was not statistically significant (ie, no interaction). In a previous CARDIA Study, Parker et al2 showed that young adults who were the most physically active had a decreased risk of developing hypertension and that the risk was attenuated after adjustment for fasting insulin level and waist circumference. ...

We found that lower HRR measured even as long as 5 min following maximal exercise was independently associated with higher CVD and all-cause mortality in men with diabetes. This association persisted even after accounting for age, cardiorespiratory fitness, prior CVD, and other possible confounders. Our findings are consistent with previous research (1) that has shown strong associations between mortality and impaired HRR in adults referred for symptom-limited exercise testing and thallium scintigraphy for diagnostic purposes, but to our knowledge our results are the first to show this association in patients with diabetes. It is important to note, however, that HRR was not the strongest predictor of risk. Therefore, when assessing risk in men with diabetes, it should not be used alone but rather in conjunction with other strong predictors, such as cardiorespiratory fitness.. Epidemiological studies have consistently shown that low physical activity and low cardiorespiratory fitness are ...
The ability to determine athletic performance in varsity athletes using preseason measures has been established. The ability of pre-season performance measures and athletes exposure to predict the incidence of injuries is unclear. Thus our purpose was to determine the ability of pre-season measures of athletic performance to predict time to injury in varsity athletes. Male and female varsity athletes competing in basketball, volleyball and ice hockey participated in this study. The main outcome measures were injury prevalence, time to injury (based on calculated exposure) and pre-season fitness measures as predictors of time to injury. Fitness measures were Apleys range of motion, push-up, curl-ups, vertical jump, modified Illinois agility, and sit-and-reach. Cox regression models were used to identify which baseline fitness measures were predictors of time to injury. Seventy-six percent of the athletes reported 1 or more injuries. Mean times to initial injury were significantly different for females
TY - THES. T1 - Measuring physical fitness in persons with severe/profound intellectual and multiple disabilities. AU - Waninge, Aly. PY - 2011. Y1 - 2011. N2 - If being physically fit is of the outmost importance, then what can be said about the fitness of persons with severe or profound intellectual, visual and motor disabilities? Exactly how could their level of physical fitness be measured? Formulated differently, if a person sees little to nothing and in addition has little comprehension of its immediate environment, then how should one go about testing? How motivated would this person be to be subjected to tests and to perform the tasks as well as possible? Finding an answer to these questions formed the main incentive for this research. The important concrete results of this research are feasible, reliable, and valid tests for assessing physical fitness of persons with severe or profound intellectual and multiple disabilities, which can be directly implemented into the daily ...
Cardiovascular fitness is sometimes referred to as cardiovascular endurance because a person who possesses this type of fitness can persist in physical exercise for long periods of time without undue fatigue. It has been referred to as leptoconnect real reviews cardio-respiratory fitness because it requires delivery and utilization of oxygen, which is only possible if the circulatory and respiratory systems are capable of these functions.. The term aerobic fitness has also been used as a synonym for cardiovascular fitness because aerobic capacity is considered to be the best indicator of cardiovascular fitness and aerobic physical activity or exercise is the preferred method for achieving it. Regardless of the words used to describe it, cardiovascular fitness is complex because it requires fitness of several body systems.. Good cardiovascular fitness requires a fit heart muscle. The heart is a muscle; to become stronger it must be exercised like any other muscle in the body. If the heart ...

Introduction. GCSE PE Personal Fitness Programme Circuit Training Circuit training is a method of training. A circuit usually has around 8 to 15 stations, where at each station a different exercise is carried out for a certain amount of time. Circuit training can improve muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, aerobic fitness, muscular strength, speed and agility. A circuit-training program may also be designed for a certain sport. Circuits for this purpose will include exercises to improve all the muscles and skills associated with the sport. (Example: A circuit training program for basketball should include skills: jumping, catching or throwing) My circuit-training program is for football. The 10 stations are specifically suited to what is needed to play football. The Circuit is specified for an outfield player as there are no goalkeeping skills involved in this circuit. My circuit will be performed over a 6 week period with one session in a week, consisting of an hour each session. My ...
Dont fret, attempt the six fitness tests outlined below to test just how far youve come and how well your fitness stacks up against your average Joe. Stability is provided in a co-ordinated manner by the active (eg muscles), passive (eg lumbar spine) and control (eg neurological systems). The lactate threshold is the point at which, during incremental exercise, lactate builds up in the blood stream at a level that is higher than resting values. The Marines have arguably the most difficult fitness test as it requires Marines to run an additional mile and do pull-ups. Here are some reliable physical fitness tests that measure strength, speed, power, endurance and flexibility. The Marine Corps PFT is a semi-annual evaluation and has three events, pull-ups, abdominal crunches, and a 3-mile run. If the aerobic fitness test is not per-formed, enter a time of 0 minutes and 0 seconds in one of the options (run, walk, row). This compiles your DNA results and lifestyle data to create a precise model of ...

Background Early changes in the large muscular arteries are already associated with risk factors as hypertension and obesity in adolescence and young adulthood. The present study examines the association between arterial stiffness measurements, pulse wave velocity and augmentation index and lifestyle-related factors, body composition and cardiorespiratory fitness, in young, healthy, Swedish adults. Design This study used a population-based cross-sectional sample. Methods The 834 participants in the study were self-reported healthy, non-smoking, age 18-25 years. Augmentation index and pulse wave velocity were measured with applanation tonometry. Cardiorespiratory fitness was measured by ergometer bike test to estimate maximal oxygen uptake. Body mass index (kg/m2) was calculated and categorised according to classification by the World Health Organisation. Results Young Swedish adults with obesity and low cardiorespiratory fitness have significantly higher pulse wave velocity and augmentation ...
This type of diet plan involves products from ideal protein in your menu so that you can reach your goal in the more effective way and stay healthy at the same time.I dare say you would, and I really could run in those days. Ethelwalch the King gave me some five or six muddy parishes by the sea, and the first time my good Eddi and I rode there we saw a man slouching along the slob, among the seals at Manhood End. Next, I want to determine my caloric intake on rest days-those days on which I do NOT train with weights. To do this, I take my MC and subtract 10%. If you were to do one good day of strength training and then a few days of circuit training through the week, I think youd be on a good path. The diet focuses on providing you with the nutrients that you need to stay healthy, and eliminates the nutrients that stop you from burning fat. If you want to lose weight the healthy way and keep the pounds off for good, you should slim down at a slow and steady rate. Most experts recommend that ...
Last question, can I build muscle and lose fat by doing dumbbell-only excerises? I cant really afford a barbell as of right now but I do have a couple of heavy dumbells and a bench laying around my similar ways, researchers all around the globe have been hunting for Pyramids and lost structures that have eluded experts for decades. I cant take time to tell my own long story, but IP was only one of the things I tried as I was searching, searching, searching for a way to get off the weight that mysteriously returned after I lost 65 pounds in a year. I had kept it off for a year and couldnt understand why I was gaining, since my eating habits hadnt changed. In the scene, then its not known how much itll cost for my own label in 2008. Attention to detail, theresno method to travel. In all of these cases, the goal is to gain weight while optimizing health, and theres a science to it. After all, the old phrase, You are what you eat is absolutely true - nutrients from food are ...
To judge perceived exertion, estimate how difficult it feels to do the exercise. Do not be concerned with any one single factor such as shortness of breath or work intensity. Instead, try to concentrate on the total inner feeling of exertion.. Multiplying the rating of perceived exertion by 10 roughly approximates the heart rate during exercise. For example, a PE of 14, when multiplied by 10, equals 140. Most soldiers with THRs between 130 and 170 BPM would exercise between a PE of 13 (somewhat hard) and 17 (very hard).. Although either percent of maximum heart rate or perceived exertion may be used during exercise, the most valid method for calculating THR is percent HRR.. ...
Stodden and colleagues (2008) created a model that investigated the relationship between motor skill competence, physical activity participation, and perceived motor skill competence.. Motor skill competence plays an important role in the initiation, maintenance, and decline of physical activity. The perceptions a child has of his or her competence in physical activity will influence whether or not a child will maintain participation in physical activity as development continues (Stodden et al. 2008). Also playing an important role in this relationship is health-related physical fitness and obesity.. Important to the relationship between competence and physical activity is the development of fundamental motor skills (FMS). FMS are learned early in childhood and include movements like walking and running. These movements form the foundation that all other movements are built off of. Its vital for children to master a variety of FMS to participate in different physical activities. If children are ...

Individuals who have undergone renal transplantation often experience low physical activity, reduced physical fitness, and reduced physical functioning. In the early stages of chronic kidney disease, patients have declines in levels of physical activity; at progression to end-stage renal disease (ESRD), physical activity levels have further declined in the majority of patients.. Patients with ESRD exhibit deconditioning and reductions in physical functioning. In addition, low cardiorespiratory fitness and muscle weakness are common following renal transplantation, which may benefit from interventions of exercise and physical activity. However, fear of movement, lack of motivation, and fatigue are often present, creating barriers to exercise in the population of renal transplant recipients.. In renal transplant recipients, the incidence and prevalence of cardiovascular disease is estimated to be four to six times higher than in the general population. Post-transplant weight gain is common in ...

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of participation in physical fitness programs on the self-perceived level of job performance of Oregon public university employees. A volunteer sample of 344 fulltime public university employees responded to the specifically designed questionnaire. Job performance was measured by job satisfaction, work productivity, general health attitude, and university commitment as positive indicators, and absences due to illness as a negative indicator. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, analysis of variance, and the Scheffe test. Public university employees tended to exercise by themselves rather than participate in the university physical fitness program and were generally involved in greater frequency of exercise; however, a considerable number were not involved in regular exercise. Male public university employees participated in more active physical fitness programs while the female employees participated in less active programs. ...

On the subject of the benefits of walking for seniors, its intriguing to note a recent pilot study that found frail seniors who walked slowly (no faster than one meter per second) benefited from a brain fitness program known as Mindfit. After eight weeks of sessions three times weekly (each session 45-60 minutes), all ten participants walked a little faster, and significantly faster while talking. Walking while talking requires considerably more concentration than normal walking. The success of this short intervention (which needs to be replicated in a larger study) offers the hope that frail elderly who may be unable to participate in physical exercise, could improve their mobility through brain fitness programs. Poor gait speed is also correlated with a higher probability of falls.. The connection between gait speed and cognitive function is an interesting one. Previous research has indicated that slow gait should alert doctors to check for cognitive impairment. One study found severe white ...

Purpose: To determine if generic off-ice physical fitness tests can provide useful predictions of ice hockey players match performance. Methods: Approximately 40 to 60 defenders and 70 to 100 forwards from the Norwegian male upper ice hockey league were tested for strength (1-repetition maximum in squat and bench press), power (40-m sprint and countermovement jump), and endurance (hanging sit-ups, chins, and 3000-m run) annually at the end of every preseason period between 2008 and 2017. Measures of match performance were each players season mean counts per match of assists, points, goals, penalty minutes, and plus-minus score. Results: Overall, match performance measures displayed trivial to small correlations with the fitness tests. More specifically, points per game had at most small correlations with measures of strength (range, approximately −0.2 to 0.3), speed (approximately −0.2 to 0.3), and endurance (approximately −0.1 to 0.3). After adjustments for age that showed moderate to ...

There is a high prevalence of women in South Africa with overweight and obesity which is associated with an increased risk of cardiometabolic disorders. Perceived barriers such as lack of time and motivation reduce engagement in beneficial activity behaviours for health. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a time-efficient and effective way to improve cardiometabolic risk profile regardless of a loss in body mass or change in body composition. This randomized controlled trial aims to determine the effects on cardiorespiratory fitness, body composition and cardiometabolic health and feasibility of a home-based 14-week HIIT program in women with overweight/obesity or normal body mass. One hundred and twenty women (18-40 years old) with a body mass index between 20 and 35 kg/m2, will be stratified according to their BMI (normal, BMI 20-24.9 kg/m2; or high BMI ≥25 kg/m2) and randomized into a HIIT exercising group (HIIT) or a non-exercising control group (CON). HIIT participants will perform

Background Exercise may improve cardiorespiratory fitness in people with schizophrenia, however, possible condition-specific cardiorespiratory disadvantages, a scarcity of methodologically sound studies, and conflicting results raise questions about the effect of exercise on maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) in this group. The primary aim of this study, therefore, was to investigate the effect of high-intensity interval training on VO2max in people with schizophrenia. Second, we sought to determine whether the intervention would have an effect on general physical activity (PA) level and body composition. Methods Eighty-two patients with schizophrenia were randomly assigned to supervised high-intensity interval training or computer gaming skills training, performed twice a week for 12 weeks. Oxygen uptake was measured directly, during a maximum exercise session on a treadmill. PA level were assessed using ActiGraph accelerometer, and body composition was assessed by bioelectrical impedance. ...

Although the effects of physical fitness training on death, dependence, and disability after stroke are unclear, there is sufficient evidence to incorporate cardiorespiratory training that involves walking within poststroke rehabilitation programs to improve speed, tolerance, and independence during walking, say authors of a meta-analysis published in November in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews. The authors searched the Cochrane Stroke Group Trials Register, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, SPORTDiscus, and 5 additional databases. They also searched ongoing trials registers, handsearched relevant journals and conference proceedings, screened reference lists, and contacted experts in the field.. Selection criteria included randomized trials comparing either cardiorespiratory training or resistance training, or both, with no intervention, a nonexercise intervention, or usual care in stroke survivors. Two review authors independently selected ...

Respiratory function relates to the ability for the body to undertake the task of gas exchange, this is very important for athletic performance as well as day to day life. It has been shown that regular physical activity can assist sufferers of conditions that affect the respiratory system. It has been found that in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) the level of physical activity reported by patients is related to lung function decline, hospitalisations and mortality[1]. It has been recognised that obesity has a great effect on respiratory function with the condition usually leading to a higher respiratory rate[2]. The two main reasons for obesity include, an excessive and unbalanced diet as well as lack of physical activity[3], this implies that regular exercise decreases the chance of having issues involving the respiratory system. It has been shown that weight loss leads to a reversal of these changes[2], which can be done using regular exercise. Therefore, the researchers looked ...
Abstract: The TT genotype of C677T polymorphism in 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) induces elevation of homocysteine level and leads to atherosclerosis and arterial stiffening. Furthermore, cardiorespiratory fitness level is also associated with arterial stiffness. In the present study, a cross-sectional investigation of 763 Japanese men and women (18-70 yr old) was performed to clarify the effects of cardiorespiratory fitness on the relationship between arterial stiffness and MTHFR C677T gene polymorphism. Arterial stiffness was assessed by carotid β-stiffness with ultrasonography and tonometry. The study subjects were divided into high-cardiorespiratory fitness (High-Fit) and low-cardiorespiratory fitness (Low-Fit) groups based on the median value of peak oxygen uptake in each sex and decade. The plasma homocysteine level was higher in the TT genotype of MTHFR C677T polymorphism compared with CC and CT genotype individuals. MTHFR C677T polymorphism showed no effect on carotid ...

By Megan RauscherNEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Children with asthma are likely to breather easier, with less medication, and feel better overall, if they boost their physical fitness levels, a study from Brazil indicates.In the study of children with appropriately-treated asthma, supervised aerobic exercise training improved aerobic fitness and curbed feelings of breathlessness induced by physical activity.Moreover, daily doses of inhaled steroids were reduced by 52 percent in children who participated in the exercise training, while the doses remained unchanged or increased for children in a comparison control group who did not exercise.Physical conditioning in asthmatic children receiving appropriate medical treatment also improved health-related quality of life, especially their asthma symptoms and exercise capacity, study author Dr. Celso R. F. Carvalho, at the University of Sao Paulo, told Reuters Health.Carvalho also noted that parents of aerobically trained asthmatic children reported being
BACKGROUND: A high level of activity is commonplace in traditional subsistence societies. Physiological characteristics of individuals, including body composition and physical fitness, could be limiting factors when performing daily tasks. OBJECTIVES: The study investigated the relationships between cardiorespiratory fitness, nutritional status and physical activity patterns, so as to test the hypothesis that these relationships are less straightforward in children than in adults. STUDY DESIGN: Four different groups of individuals from rural Senegal were investigated: 99 10-13-year-old children of both sexes (11.1 +/- 1.5 years old) from two settings in Senegal (Lambaye and Podor), 43 adolescent girls (15.5 +/- 0.5 years), and 30 adult women (17-40 years). METHODS: Subjects undertook a step test, and anthropometric measurements were collected. Continuous heart rate (HR) monitoring was performed for 8-12 h. The flex-HR method was used to estimate levels of activity (per cent of time spent under or over
