Int J Environ Res Public Health 2022 Jun 19;19(12). Epub 2022 Jun 19.

Center for Liberal Arts, Fukuoka Institute of Technology, Fukuoka 811-0295, Japan.

This study aimed to compare the degree of exhaustion and trophic effects between continuous exercise (CE) and intermittent exercise (IE) at lactate threshold (LT) intensity. Seven healthy men (age: 43-69 years) performed the following three experimental tests in a randomized crossover order: (1) control; (2) CE, performed as a 20-min of cycling at LT intensity; and (3) IE, performed as 20 sets of a one-min bout of cycling at LT intensity with a 30-s rest between every two sets. Heart rate (HR), blood lactate concentration (LA), rating of perceived exertion (RPE), catecholamines, cortisol, growth hormone, insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-1, and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) were measured.

Reproducibility and Applicability of Traditional Strength Training Prescription Recommendations.

Biology (Basel) 2022 Jun 2;11(6). Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Department of Radiology, Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy, Complutense University of Madrid, 28040 Madrid, Spain.

Background: The aim of this study was to verify the reproducibility of a resistance training protocol in the bench press (BP) exercise, based on traditional recommendations, analysing the effect of the muscle fatigue of each set and of the whole exercise protocol.

Stud Health Technol Inform 2022 Jun;290:1098-1099

Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Digital Health and Prevention, Salzburg, Austria.

In this work, we describe the conceptualization and development of a digital tool to support patients in adhering to prescription of physical exercise training during cardiac rehabilitation. To meet the need for an individual and trackable heart-healthy training plan - which became even more evident during the Coronavirus pandemic - the Activity Planning Tool was developed within a user-centered design process. Tackling the relationship between rehabilitation professional and patient, it allows to jointly set up, monitor, and regularly review a personalized physical activity plan. Read More

The blood pressure response to acute exercise predicts the ambulatory blood pressure response to exercise training in patients with resistant hypertension: results from the EnRicH trial.

Hypertens Res 2022 Jun 7. Epub 2022 Jun 7.

Institute of Biomedicine - iBiMED, School of Health Sciences, University of Aveiro, Aveiro, Portugal.

Reports suggest that the blood pressure (BP) response to an acute bout of exercise is associated with the BP response to aerobic training in participants with elevated BP. These associations have not been tested among patients with resistant hypertension. This study aimed to determine whether the BP response to acute exercise predicts the 24-h ambulatory BP response to a 12-week exercise training program in patients with resistant hypertension (n = 26, aged 59.

Towards an improved understanding of proximity-to-failure in resistance training and its influence on skeletal muscle hypertrophy, neuromuscular fatigue, muscle damage, and perceived discomfort: A scoping review.

J Sports Sci 2022 Jun 5:1-23. Epub 2022 Jun 5.

School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences, Institute for Physical Activity and Nutrition (IPAN), Deakin University, Geelong, Australia.

While proximity-to-failure is considered an important resistance training (RT) prescription variable, its influence on physiological adaptations and short-term responses to RT is uncertain. Given the ambiguity in the literature, a scoping review was undertaken to summarise evidence for the influence of proximity-to-failure on muscle hypertrophy, neuromuscular fatigue, muscle damage and perceived discomfort. Literature searching was performed according to PRISMA-ScR guidelines and identified three themes of studies comparing either: i) RT performed to momentary muscular failure versus non-failure, ii) RT performed to set failure (defined as anything other than momentary muscular failure) versus non-failure, and iii) RT performed to different velocity loss thresholds.
