The effectiveness and safety of isometric #resistance training for adults with high blood #pressure: a systematic review and meta-analysis

High blood pressure (BP) is a global health challenge. Isometric resistance training (IRT) has demonstrated antihypertensive effects, but safety data are not available, thereby limiting its recommendation for clinical use. We conducted a systematic review of randomized controlled trials comparing IRT to controls in adults with elevated BP (systolic ≥130 mmHg/diastolic ≥85 mmHg). This review provides an …

OR10-1 – Efficacy of High-Intensity Intermittent #Training for Improving Cardio-Metabolic Health in Women With #Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common and complex endocrinopathy with significant metabolic and reproductive manifestations, carrying a major health and economic burden. Consistent improvements in clinical outcomes have been reported as a result of exercise training, but shortfalls with exercise prescription are evident. Research suggests that high-intensity intermittent training (HIIT) is feasible, well tolerated …

Effect of High-Intensity Strength #Training on #Knee Pain and Knee Joint Compressive Forces Among Adults With Knee #Osteoarthritis

Thigh muscle weakness is associated with knee discomfort and osteoarthritis disease progression. Little is known about the efficacy of high-intensity strength training in patients with knee osteoarthritis or whether it may worsen knee symptoms. Objective To determine whether high-intensity strength training reduces knee pain and knee joint compressive forces more than low-intensity strength training and …

Neuro-computational Impact of Physical #Training Overload on Economic #Decision-Making

Highlights • Training overload in endurance sport induces cognitive control fatigue • Training-induced fatigue is associated with reduced prefrontal cortex activity • Training-induced fatigue is associated with enhanced choice impulsivity • Excessive physical training and intellectual work induce similar cognitive fatigue At the neural level, training overload resulted in diminished activation of the lateral prefrontal …
