BMC Sports Science, Medicine and Rehabilitation | Full text | Responses to increasing exercise upon reaching the anaerobic threshold, and their control by the central nervous system

“The anaerobic threshold (AT) has been one of the most studied of all physiological variables. Many authors have proposed the use of several markers to determine the moment at with the AT is reached.”

Short bursts of intense exercise before meals control blood sugar better than 1 continuous 30 minute session

Short bursts of intense exercise before meals control blood sugar better than 1 continuous 30 minute session | Exercise and Sports Physiology @ Curtin | Scoop.it
Brief bursts of intense exercise before meals helps control blood sugar in people with insulin resistance more effectively than one daily 30-minute session of moderate exercise, a study finds. "The notion of doing small amounts of interval exercise before meals is a unique and very important feature of this study," says one researcher. "Sustained hyperglycaemia following meals is an important feature of insulin resistance. Reducing these post-meal spikes is important for reducing the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and its associated complications."

dislike! what a discouraging article. I post this only to tell how much I disapprove. I say this because if these kinds of genetic tests become available and children are being trained with extreme specificity from a young age, it will kill the passion that causes people to do things that others would have thought impossible.

 

"It may help to explain why some overweight runners can go streaking past other apparently fitter competitors."

ok, I can definitely see this. It's interesting! but...

 

"If months of marathon training fails to deliver the kind of finishing times you were hoping for this year, there is no need to beat yourself up - /you were not born to do it./"

"whether their efforts will be worthwhile."

"Anyone falling into this category would be better tto give up on their dream of completing a marathon"

wow. such a downer article. you weren't born to do it? what, and the fast people were more born to do it than you? God was like, "I think this person will be a marathon runner". I mean, maybe. But really, I don't think so. "give up on their dreams"? this seems like a joke. It makes me sad!

The genetic test is called XRPredict+. It says that 20% of people won't respond to aerobic training due to an inability to grow new blood vessels and may push themselves just as hard as everyone else, but just get worse. It does say that they can build up their strength and muscle tissue and excel at non-edurance sports.
