Detraining is the reduction of performance that happens after the cessation of training and is reflected by anatomic and physiologic changes. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of reduce training on cardiovascular parameters in distance runners. Many studies showed reduce of VO2 max and anaerobic threshold after detraining. On...

The purpose of this study was to perform a systematic review and summarize the current literature regarding L-carnitine and the potential role of sports especially in distance athletes. L-carnitine is a naturally occurring compound that plays an important role in mitochondrial β-oxidation. The main role of L-carnitine is to promote weight loss by i...

The purpose of this study was to perform a systematic review determine the effects of tapering on performance in elite endurance runners. The taper is a key element of the physical preparation of athletes in the weeks before a competition and it seems that the most important variable for maximize performance is training volume, training frequency a...

Vitamin D can be synthesized endogenously by exposing the skin to UVB radiation of the sun (Deldicque & Francaux, 2015). Also, low vitamin D status has been linked to various cardiovascular diseases, hypertension and certain types of cancer (Halliday et al., 2011). Athletes have similar risk factors for vitamin D deficiency as the rest of the popul...

The purpose of this study was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of controlled trials to determine the effect of strength-training programs on the running economy (RE) of high-level middle- and long-distance runners. Four electronic databases were searched in September 2015 (Pubmed, SPORTDiscus, MEDLINE and CINAHL) for original resear...
Conference Paper
Several oxidant stressors have been repeatedly employed in the field of free radical biology to perturb redox homeostasis. Most of these oxidant stressors are of pharmacological nature and produce toxic effects, limiting their use to cells and animals. Hence, the development of a physiological oxidant stimulus applicable to humans would be useful i...

Despite the progress of analytic techniques and the refinement of study designs, striking disagreement exists among studies regarding the influence of exercise on muscle function and redox homeostasis in the elderly. The repeated eccentric exercise model was applied to produce long-lasting and extensive changes in redox biomarkers and to reveal mor...

Background Previous studies from our group have shown that "pure" eccentric exercise performed on an isokinetic dynamometer can induce health-promoting effects that may improve quality of life. In order to investigate whether the benefits of "pure" eccentric exercise can be transferred to daily activities, a new and friendlier way to perform eccent...

This study investigates whether vitamin E can attenuate eccentric exercise-induced soleus muscle injury as indicated by the amelioration of in situ isometric force decline following a low-frequency fatigue protocol (stimulation at 4 Hz for 5 min) and the ability of the muscle to recover 3 min after the termination of the fatigue protocol. Adult mal...

Twenty males ran either on a level treadmill (nonmuscle-damaging condition) or on a downhill treadmill (muscle-damaging condition). Blood and urine samples were collected before and after exercise (immediately after, 1h, 4h, 24h, 48h, and 96h). The following assays were performed: F(2)-isoprostanes in urine, protein carbonyls in plasma, glutathione...

Exercise-induced arterial hypoxemia (EIAH), characterized by decline in arterial oxyhemoglobin saturation (SaO(2)), is a common phenomenon in endurance athletes. Acute intensive exercise is associated with the generation of reactive species that may result in redox status disturbances and oxidation of cell macromolecules. The purpose of the present...

Η δύναμη στους δρόμους ημιαντοχής-αντοχής φαίνεται να διαδραματίζει σημαντικό ρόλο στη βελτίωση των επιδόσεων. Η πιο πάνω ικανότητα αποκτά μεγαλύτερη αξία όσο αυξάνεται η ταχύτητα διάνυσης της αγωνιστικής απόστασης στους δρόμους αυτούς. Έτσι, όσο μεγαλύτερη είναι η αγωνιστική ταχύτητα ενός δρομέα, τόσο μεγαλύτερο και πιο αποφασιστικό ρόλο διαδραματ...
