The data indicate that strength training did not reduce the risk of developing CHD and absolute 10-year risk for CHD as assessed by the FRA score.]]> Wed 19 Feb 2020 14:34:23 SAST ]]> A randomised controlled study investigating pulmonary function and respiratory muscle strength in older adults after training with pilates.

The CG subjects were found to have had no significant changes in number of cigarettes smoked daily (p > 0.831), TC (p > 0.678), HDLC (p > 0.672) or FRA score (p > 0.504), but SBP increased significantly (p < 0.030). These data indicate that resistance training can effectively reduce the predicted risk of developing CHD, even in men with already low risk]]> Wed 05 Feb 2020 09:42:13 SAST ]]> Metabolic changes associated with playing active video game against a human and computer opponent. Wed 05 Feb 2020 09:41:45 SAST ]]> Acute effects of a weight loss supplement on resting metabolic rate and anaerobic exercise performance. 0.05) differences found in RMR, RER, HR, BP, absolute peak anaerobic power, relative peak anaerobic power or minimum absolute peak anaerobic power and fatigue index during the Vingate cycle ergometer test between placebo, morning, afternoon or evening trials. No significant difference was found in the blood lactate concentrations. However, the morning WLS trial induced a greater increase in blood lactate concentration than the other trials (p < 0.05). Despite containing stimulatory components, tl1e results indicated that the WLS would not stimulate marked weight loss or perceived energy. The lack of effects could be due to an inadequate dosage of the stimulant, or a counteractive effect caused by the proprietary blend of ingredients. The study suggests that tl1e proclaimed effects of other weight loss supplements should also be scrutinised in order to detennine their health implications and empirically assess their purp01ted beneficial effects on wellbeing.]]> Wed 05 Feb 2020 09:41:29 SAST ]]> Effects of resistance training on total, central and abdominal adiposity.

In conclusion, eight weeks of resistance training is not an effective mode of training to promote an improvement in macronutrient and energy intake and despite studies demonstrating that exercise itself, in the absence of counseling, may affect feeding behaviour, it may be that resistance training as a mode of training may not be an effective mode of exercise to promote overall physical activity in an attempt to modify the patterns of macronutrient and energy intake. As such, negative energy balance would solely be due to the energy expenditure during this mode of exercise.]]> Wed 05 Feb 2020 09:40:31 SAST ]]> Response of pulmonary peak flow measures to upper body resistance training.

No significant changes were found in any of the measured variables in the CG from pre- to post-test.

Tue 20 Oct 2020 11:33:36 SAST ]]> Effects of a mat Pilates programme on muscular strength and endurance in elderly women. 60 years). Fifty sedentary, apparently healthy females aged 60 and older were randomly assigned into a control (CG, n = 25) or an intervention (IG, n = 25) group. The IG took part in an eight-week progressive mat Pilates exercise programme, three times weekly while the CG did not participate in any structured exercises throughout the eight-week period. All subjects underwent pre- and post-test in which muscular strength and muscular endurance were assessed. Results obtained from the present study indicate that eight-weeks of mat Pilates produced significant (p ≤ 0.05) improvements in upper-body muscular strength (19.12 ± 5.13 repetitions (reps) - 27.84 ± 5.68 reps; p = 0.000), lower-body muscular strength (13.24 ± 3.23 reps - 7.52 ± 3.81 reps; p = 0.000) and muscular endurance (24.48 ± 11.62 reps to 44.16 ± 18.97 reps; p = 0.000). It is therefore, concluded that an eight-week mat Pilates exercise programme is sufficient enough to produce significant improvements in muscular strength and muscular endurance in elderly women.]]> Tue 20 Oct 2020 11:32:51 SAST ]]> Body fat percentage of urban South African children: Implications for health and fitness.

ANOVA test indicated no significant sex main effect on flexibility test scores (F(1, 2007)=0.027; P>0.05), whereas this yielded a substantial age main effect (F(3, 2007)=3.407; P<0.05). On average, boys had a slight, but significantly superior push-up performance (9.1±3.9) compared to girls (8.6±3.5) (P=0.04; P<0.05). Results also indicated substantial age difference in push-up scores among boys and girls (F(1, 3)=11.1; P<0.05). There were no significant age/ sex interaction effect (F(3, 2007)=1.396; P>0.05) and sex main effect in the sit-up performances for the boys and girls (P=0.188; P>0.05). Boys had significantly (P<0.05) higher mean sit-up values, at ages 10 and 12, whereas no statistically significant sex main effect was found regarding the children’s sit-up scores (F(1, 2007)=1.134; P>0.05). Conclusion. Whereas the study showed non-significant sex and age differences in flexibility between boys and girls, marked age- and gender- related discrepancies were found regarding muscular strength. The muscular endurance component showed inconsistent results across age groups.]]> Tue 03 Apr 2018 12:43:00 SAST ]]> Resting cardiovascular function improvements in adult men following resistance training.

The likelihood of hypertension development among children is noticeable at age 10 for both boys and girls (0.2 and 0.1%, respectively), and ranged from 0.2 to 1.7% for boys and 0.1 to 1.2% for girls. Collectively, the prevalence of hypertension was 4.1 and 2.8% for boys and girls, respectively. Blood pressure correlated positively with stature, body mass, body mass index, body fat, and sum of skinfolds (p<0.001). Conclusions: Blood pressure increased with age in both genders. The routine measurement of blood pressure, as part of physical examinations of schoolchildren, is crucial for early prevention and intervention programs.]]> Mon 09 Nov 2020 15:13:03 SAST ]]> Role of diaphragmatic breathing and aerobic exercise in improving pulmonary function and maximal oxygen consumption in asthmatics.
