Purpose. To examine the effects of two doses of low-frequency (12 Hz), low-magnitude (0.3 g), whole body vibration on markers of bone formation and resorption in postmenopausal women. Methods. Women were recruited and randomized into a sham vibration control group, one time per week vibration group (1×/week), or three times per week vibration group (3×/week). Vibration exposure consisted of 20 minutes of intermittent vibration for the 1×/week and 3×/week groups, and sham vibration (<0.1 g) for t...

"Clinical exercise physiologists are university-trained practitioners who provide exercise services for people living with chronic disease, disability or injury, and are recognised as Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEP) under a national system administered by the Australian Association for Exercise and Sports Science (AAESS). Exercise is now accepted by both the scientific and medical communities to be highly therapeutic for many chronic medical conditions prevalent in Australia today, as we...

Abstract Background The rising prevalence of obesity in children and adolescents is implicated in the metabolic abnormalities that track into adulthood. The associated increased incidence of insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes being identified in younger cohorts has given rise to a critical global health issue. Muscular strength is a vital component of metabolic fitness that provides protection from insulin resistance in adults, and we have recently shown this to be true i...

The majority of resistance training (RT) research with children to date has focused on pre-adolescents and the safety and efficacy of this type of training rather than the potential metabolic health benefits. Our objectives, using computerized databases, were (i) to systematically review studies utilizing RT interventions with children and adolescents <18 years; (ii) to investigate the metabolic health outcomes (adiposity, lipids, insulin, glucose) associated with RT; (iii) to provide recommenda...

Summary Entrepreneurial marketing of sport increases demands on sport development officers to identify talented individuals for specialist development at the youngest possible age. Talent identification results in the streamlining of resources to produce optimal returns from a sports investment. However, the process of talent identification for team sports is complex and success prediction is imperfect. The aim of this review is to describe existing practices in physiological tests used for tale...

Objective. To investigate the relationship of muscular strength and cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) to insulin resistance. Methods. In a cross sectional study of 126 volunteers (10–15 years) we measured insulin, glucose, lipids, body mass, height, waist circumference (WC), strength and CRF. Linear and logistic regression models assessed the relationships between these factors and estimated insulin resistance (Homeostasis Assessment Model2; HOMA2-IR). Results. Greater insulin resistance was assoc...
