Telomere shortening is associated to sarcopenia leading to functional impairment during aging. There are mechanisms associated with telomere attrition, as well to its protection and repair. Physical training is a factor that attenuates telomere shortening, but little is known about the effects of different exercise intensities on telomere biology. Thus, we evaluated the effects of exercise intensity (moderate vs. high-intensity domain) on gene expression of senescence markers Checkpoint kinase 2...

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) results in several metabolic and cardiovascular dysfunctions, clinically characterized by hyperglycaemia due to lower glucose uptake and oxidation. Physical exercise is an effective intervention for glycaemic control. However, the effects of exercising at different intensities have not yet been addressed. The present study analysed the effects of 8 weeks of training performed at different exercise intensities on type 4 glucose transporters (GLUT4) content and glyca...

Background : Individual anaerobic threshold (IAT) is a valid method to evaluate aerobic capacity. However, IAT determination requires blood analysis and thus is less accessible for coaches and athletes. Type of study : Predictive validation. Purpose : To verify the validity of IAT prediction through 1 km and 3 km running performance in male youth soccer players. Methods : Participants (n=20; 15.4 ± 1.2 years; 170.1 ± 1.5 cm; 58.9 ± 5.8 kg) were divided into 2 groups (G1 and G2) who underwent run...

A obesidade e a hipertensao arterial sao tidas como fatores de risco para doencas cardiovasculares e a sua prevalencia parece diferir de acordo com a atividade profissional. Desse modo, o objetivo do presente estudo foi estimar a prevalencia de fatores de risco cardiovascular em funcionarios de uma mineradora e verificar os fatores associados a pressao arterial (PA) elevada. Para tanto, 197 voluntarios (61,4% homens) com idade entre 20 e 60 anos, todos funcionarios de uma empresa de mineracao, f...

Exercise is recognized to prevent and attenuate several metabolic and cardiovascular disorders. Obesity is commonly related to cardiovascular diseases, frequently resulting in heart failure and death. To elucidate the effects of acute exercise in heart tissue from obese animals, 12-week-old C57BL6/J obese (ob/ob) and non-obese (ob/OB) mice were submitted to a single bout of swimming and had their hearts analyzed by proteomic techniques. Mice were divided into three groups: control (ob/ob, n = 3;...

Obesity and hypertension are risk factors for cardiovascular diseases and their prevalence seems to vary according to profession. In this scenario, the aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors in employees of a mining company and to identify associated factors with high blood pressure (BP). To this end, 197 volunteers (61.4% male) aged between 20 and 60, all employees of a mining company had their body mass index and BP measured. Excessive weight (overweigh...

Bullying refers to the use of physical, intellectual or economic superiority to humiliate another person. This study aimed to investigate the existence and how bullying occurs in physical education classes in a Federal District School. For this, 140 students of the 7 th and 8 th grades of a school in the city of Guara – DF participated in the study. The students answered a questionnaire about the occurrence of abuse in physical education classes. Approximately 28.0% of the students have felt abu...

Obesity is a highly prevalent condition associated with several diseases. Physical exercise has been considered as a non-pharmacological tool in the treatment of obesity. However, several aspects underlying exercise evaluation and prescription in obesity and associated pathologies are still under investigation. Although many research involving exercise have been performed in animal models, there is a lack of protocols for aerobic capacity assessment in obese animals, such as the ob/ob mice. This...

OBJETIVO: Analisar a possibilidade de se determinar a velocidade de lactato minimo (LM) em corredores adolescentes utilizando-se apenas tres estagios incrementais. METODOS: Onze individuos (13,7 ± 1,0 anos; 47,3 ± 12,1kg; 160,0 ± 1,0cm; 18,3 ± 1,8kg/m2) realizaram tres testes de corrida em pista de atletismo em dias distintos: 1) desempenho de 3.000m (Vm3.000); 2) teste de LM que consistiu de um sprint de 500m para inducao a hiperlactatemia, seguido de 10min de recuperacao e seis series de 800m ...

Abstract Aim The study aimed to analyze blood pressure (BP) responses in individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) over a 24h period following resistance (RES) and aerobic (AER) exercise. Methods Ten adults with T2D (age: 55.8±7.7 years; weight: 79.4±14.0kg; fasting glucose: 133.0±36.7mg.dL −1 ) underwent: (1) AER: 20min of cycling at 90% lactate threshold (90% LT); (2) RES: three laps of a circuit of six exercises with eight repetitions at 70% 1-RM and 40s of recovery; and (3) a control session of...
