Benefit of human moderate running boosting mood and executive function coinciding with bilateral prefrontal activation

Running, compared to pedaling is a whole-body locomotive movement that may confer more mental health via strongly stimulating brains, although running impacts on mental health but their underlying brain mechanisms have yet to be determined; since almost the mechanistic studies have been done with pedaling. We thus aimed at determining the acute effect of a …

The effect of #trunk flexion angle on lower limb mechanics during #running

High trunk flexion during running impacts lower limb kinetics and kinematics. •Ground reaction forces increased significantly with greater trunk flexion. •Stride parameters and joint moments were affected by degree of trunk flexion. •Trunk position should be investigated as a contributing factor to running injury. AbstractTrunk flexion is an understudied biomechanical variable that potentially influences running …

Is #running associated with a lower risk of all-cause, #cardiovascular and cancer #mortality, and is the more the better? A systematic review and meta-analysis

Fourteen studies from six prospective cohorts with a pooled sample of 232 149 participants were included. In total, 25 951 deaths were recorded during 5.5–35 year follow-ups. Our meta-analysis showed that running participation is associated with 27%, 30% and 23% lower risk of all-cause (pooled adjusted hazard ratio (HR)=0.73; 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.68 to 0.79), cardiovascular (HR=0.70; …
