  1. 1. Exercising on the edge: mitochondrial and metabolic responses to intense training

    Author : Mikael Flockhart; Filip J Larsen; Eva Blomstrand; Nikolai Baastrup Nordsborg; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Exercise; training; mitochondria; performance; glucose tolerance; proteins; oxygen uptake; metabolism; cycling; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : Exercise and exercise training induces several physiological adaptations that increase the oxidative capacity of the muscles and improve glucose regulation. While the positive metabolic adaptations and effects on glucose regulation after exercise and exercise training have been extensively studied, negative outcomes have not. READ MORE

  2. 2. Physical activity among patients with cardiovascular disease : a predictor of hospital care utilisation and mortality in clinical work

    Author : Amanda Ek; Örjan Ekblom; Lena Kallings; Mats Börjesson; Joep Perk; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiovascular disease; Physical exercise; Sedentary behaviour; Physical activity; Survival; Mortality; Hospitalisation; Cardiology Service; Guideline adherence; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : Guidelines highlight the importance of physical activity (PA) in secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) within the healthcare sector. Previous studies have mainly focused on the effects of PA at moderate-vigorous intensity performed within exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation (CR). READ MORE

  3. 3. Validity and reliability of a submaximal cycle ergometer test for estimation of maximal oxygen uptake

    Author : Frida Maria Eleonora Björkman; Örjan Ekblom; Tony Bohman; Åsa Tornberg; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) is the highest obtained rate of oxygen consumption during a physically intense dynamic whole-body activity. VO2max is an important factor for many types of physical performance, as well as a strong independent predictor of health and longevity. READ MORE

  4. 4. Effects of exercise and amino acid intake on mechanisms regulating protein synthesis and breakdown in human muscle

    Author : Marcus Moberg; Eva Blomstrand; Hans-Christer Holmberg; Jørgen Jensen; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Resistance exercise; concurrent exericse; leucine; BCAA; mTORC1 signaling; protein synthesis; MuRF-1; PGC-1alpha; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : Skeletal muscle adapts differently to specific modes of exercise, where resistance training results in muscle growth and endurance training induces mitochondrial biogenesis. These are results of molecular events that occur after each exercise session, increasing the expression of specific genes and the rate of both synthesis and breakdown of protein. READ MORE

  5. 5. Grading in physical education

    Author : Lena Svennberg; Karin Redelius; Jane Meckbach; Ann MacPhail; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; physical education; assessment; movement qualities; criterion referenced; standards-based grading; internalised grading; gut-feeling; equity; Bernstein; Repertory Grid; Samhällsvetenskap Humaniora; Social Sciences Humanities;

    Abstract : In the thesis the aim is to investigate different aspects of what teachers value when grading in Swedish physical education (PE) and to analyses how sociological background factors impact students’ grades. Grades in PE have included aspects other than those prescribed in the grading criteria, for instance motivation and effort. READ MORE
