Emerging questions about the mechanisms that control muscle (6/29/2010)

Emerging questions about the mechanisms that control muscleThere are major shifts underway in understanding the physiological mechanisms that control muscle contraction, a field that has been the focus of intense research for centuries. The latest Perspectives in General Physiology series presents key novel findings, unresolved questions, and clinical implications of essential muscle processes that are controlled by distinct and complex multiprotein macromolecular machines. The Perspectives appear in the July issue of the Journal of General Physiology. ...> Full Article

Subchondral bone changes contribute to cartilage damage and loss (6/26/2010)

A recent study determined that bone area predicted the development of medial (inner side) and lateral (outer side) knee cartilage damage and loss of medial cartilage volume. Subchondral bone mineral density was associated with medial defect development but not cartilage loss. Researchers believe subchondral bone changes and loss of cartilage contribute to the development of osteoarthritis. Read details of the study online or in the July issue of Arthritis & Rheumatism, a journal of the American College of Rheumatology. ...> Full Article


Left or right? Early clues to soccer penalty kicks revealed (6/25/2010)

Left or right? Early clues to soccer penalty kicks revealedIn the split second before foot meets ball, a soccer player's body betrays whether a penalty kick will go left or right, according to recent research in cognitive science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The findings could explain how some top goalkeepers are able to head off a penalty kick, diving in the correct direction in advance of the kick. It could also point the way to changes in how players kick, and goalies react. ...> Full Article


Exercise trumps creatine in cardiac rehab (6/24/2010)

Athletes have been enjoying the benefits of creatine supplements to gain stronger muscles since the 1990s, and the supplement has also proven beneficial among other groups. Could it help cardiac patients regain strength to help with their heart-training workouts as part of rehabilitation? The evidence at this stage suggests not -- exercise alone proved a far more powerful tonic for patients in a study out today. The results appear in the journal Clinical Rehabilitation, published by SAGE ...> Full Article


Researchers use science to identify soccer stars (6/18/2010)

Researchers use science to identify soccer starsUntil now, rating the world's best soccer players was often based on a fan's personal sense of the game. But researchers at Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill., recently developed a computer program that, for the first time, measures player success based on objective assessments of performance instead of opinion. ...> Full Article


New technologies to improve football refereeing (6/16/2010)

Glide wax like tarring a plastic boat (6/15/2010)

Both recreational skiers and elite ski racers can forget about wax and scrape their skis with a steel tool instead. "Putting wax on modern skis is just as wrong as tarring a plastic boat," says Leonid Kuzmin. His research prompted a big debate a couple of years ago. In his dissertation at Mid Sweden University one may also find some notice regarding the unhealthful consequences of ski wax. ...> Full Article


Getting extra sleep improves the athletic performance of collegiate football players (6/10/2010)

Getting extra sleep improves the athletic performance of collegiate football playersFootball players' sprint times improved significantly after seven to eight weeks of sleep extension. Average sprint time in the 20-yard shuttle improved from 4.71 seconds to 4.61 seconds, and average 40-yard dash time decreased from 4.99 seconds to 4.89 seconds. Daytime sleepiness and fatigue also decreased significantly, while vigor scores significantly improved. Participants were seven healthy students on the Stanford football team. Results support previous research at Stanford involving students who compete in other sports. ...> Full Article


Crash helmet with a useful smell (6/9/2010)

Crash helmet with a useful smellCycle helmets are available in a wide range of types, including foldable models, models fitted with a flashing rear light or featuring an iPhone display. In the future, they will start to smell distinctively if they need to be replaced. A new process causes odoriferous oils to exude from plastic materials if they are cracked. ...> Full Article


Hip exercises found effective at reducing, eliminating common knee pain in runners (6/8/2010)

A twice weekly hip strengthening regimen performed for six weeks proved surprisingly effective at reducing -- and in some cases eliminating -- knee pain referred to as patellofemoral pain (PFP) in female runners. ...> Full Article


Compression clothing and athletic performance - functional or fad? (6/6/2010)

Two Indiana U. researchers examined whether compression garments for the lower legs and upper thighs influenced athletic performance and found little effect. They are presenting their findings at the American College of Sports Medicine's annual meeting. ...> Full Article


Inspiratory muscle training and endurance sport performance (6/4/2010)

An Indiana University study found that strengthening inspiratory muscles by performing daily breathing exercises for six weeks significantly reduced the amount of oxygen these same breathing muscles required during exercise, possibly making more oxygen available for other muscles. ...> Full Article


Chocolate milk is a 'natural' for post-exercise recovery (6/3/2010)

Chocolate milk is a 'natural' for post-exercise recoveryOne of the best post-exercise recovery drinks could already be in your refrigerator, according to new research presented at the American College of Sports Medicine conference this week. In a series of four studies, researchers found that chocolate milk offered a recovery advantage to help repair and rebuild muscles, compared to specially designed carbohydrate sports drinks. ...> Full Article
