The number of studies examining associations between training load and injury has increased exponentially. As a result, many new measures of exposure and training-load-based prognostic factors have been created. The acute:chronic workload ratio (ACWR) is the most popular. However, when recommending the manipulation of a prognostic factor in order to alter the likelihood of an event, one assumes a causal effect. This introduces a series of additional conceptual and methodological considerations t...

: We investigated the associations of cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF), physical activity (PA) with regard to aerobic and resistance training, and body mass index (BMI) with pulse wave velocity (PWV) and augmentation index (AIx) in middle-aged adults with at least one cardiovascular risk factor. A total of 84 (46 men and 38 women) participated in the study. Cardiorespiratory fitness was measured using a maximal graded exercise test on a cycle ergometer and was defined as maximal power output (Wma...

Maintaining a healthy body weight requires an exquisite balance between energy intake and energy expenditure. To understand the genetic and environmental factors that contribute to the regulation of body weight, an important first step is to establish the normal range of metabolic values and primary sources contributing to variability. Energy metabolism is measured by powerful and sensitive indirect calorimetry devices. Analysis of nearly 10,000 wild-type mice from two large-scale experiments re...
This study aimed to analyze if the ratio standard or the allometry is the best scaling methods of handgrip strength (HGS) for body mass (BM) in judo athletes and nonathletes, and to verify if the HGS mean values are higher in judo athletes than nonathletes when the BM effect is removed. One hundred forty-two individuals, being 88 judo athletes and 54 non-athletes participated in this study. The maximal isometric HGS was measured in judo athletes and nonathletes in the preferred hand. Only the al...

OBJECTIVE: To compare maternal haemodynamics in women low and high-risk for preterm pre-eclampsia (PE) and between those high-risk randomised to aspirin or placebo. DESIGN: Prospective, longitudinal observational study. SETTING: Maternity units in six UK hospitals. POPULATION: Women participating in the Aspirin for Prevention of Preterm Pre-eclampsia (ASPRE) trial. The population comprised of three groups of women: low-risk for preterm PE (N=1362), high-risk for preterm PE treated with aspirin (...

Abstract Background Appropriate normalization methods to scale Doppler-derived stroke volume (SV) to body size in patients with aortic stenosis (AS) are poorly defined and reference values are lacking. We aim to establish reference values of normalized SV in adults, and to compare the prognostic value of SV normalized by different methods in AS patients. Methods In 2781 normotensive, non-obese adults without cardiovascular disease we defined normal relationships between SV and body size by nonli...

This study examines the association between aerobic capacity and biomarkers of skeletal- and cardiac muscle damage among amateur triathletes after a full distance Ironman. Men and women (N = 55) were recruited from local sport clubs. One month before an Ironman triathlon, they conducted a 20 m shuttle run test to determine aerobic capacity. Blood samples were taken immediately after finishing the triathlon, and analyzed for cardiac Troponin T (cTnT), Myosin heavy chain-a (MHC-a), N-terminal proh...
