  • The Cardiorespiratory Responses In Lap Swimmers and Zumba Dancers 

    Villanueva, Natalie (Department of Kinesiology, The University of Texas at Arlington.Exercise Science Research Laboratories, The University of Texas at ArlingtonCardiovascular Research Laboratory, The University of Texas at Arlington, 2015)
    Cardiorespiratory responses can be evaluated by measuring the workload, heart rate (HR), blood pressure (BP), and rate of perceived exertion (RPE) in a submaximal test. Although it is often used to determine an exercise ...
  • A Comparison of Continuous and Intermittent Exercise Effect on Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC) 

    Tran, Kelly (Department of Kinesiology, The University of Texas at ArlingtonExercise Science Research Laboratories, The University of Texas at ArlingtonCardiovascular Research Laboratory, The University of Texas at Arlington, 2015)
    A COMPARISION OF CONTINUOUS AND INTERMITTENT EXERCISE EFFECT ON EXCESS POST-EXERCISE OXYGEN CONSUMPTION (EPOC) Author: Kelly Tran Faculty Sponsor: J.R. Wilson, Ph.D.; Brad Heddins, M.S. INTRODUCTION:As individuals conduct ...
  • Impact of Diminished Visual Feedback on Postural Control 

    Thomas, Kripa (Department of Kinesiology, The University of Texas at ArlingtonExercise Science Research Laboratories, The University of Texas at ArlingtonThe Center of Healthy Living and Longevity Laboratory, The University of Texas at Arlington, 2015)
    INTRODUCTION: Sensory systems are an integral key to efficient postural control. Out of all the sensory systems, visual has shown to be the most heavily relied on. With the progression of age there is a decline with not ...
  • Effects of C4 on Maximum Testing During Bruce Protocol 

    Patel, Darshan (Department of Kinesiology, The University of Texas at ArlingtonExercise Science Research Laboratories, The University of Texas at ArlingtonCardiovascular Research Laboratory, The University of Texas at Arlington, 2015)
    INTRODUCTION: The Bruce Protocol is a commonly used test for determining maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max). The VO2maxvalue is a measure of an athlete’s aerobic endurance. VO2maxcan be reported in absolute terms (L/min) ...
  • EFFECTS OF FIVE-HOUR ENERGY SUPPLEMENT DURING MAXIMAL EXERCISE TESTING 

    Ofoegbu, Nancy (Department of Kinesiology, The University of Texas at ArlingtonExercise Science Research Laboratories, The University of Texas at Arlington, 2015)
    Six women (W; age 20.8 ±1.46 yrs.) of the UTA Kinesiology department, volunteered to participate in this study. Each subject was asked to consume either Five-Hour Energy or a control (Splenda mixed with water) and perform ...
  • The Effects of Zumba on Fitness Levels as Determined by The YMCA Submaximal Exercise Test 

    Ngwanah, Victor (Department of Kinesiology, The University of Texas at ArlingtonCardiovascular Laboratory, The University of Texas at ArlingtonExercise Science Research Laboratories, The University of Texas at Arlington, 2015)
    Introduction: Zumba is a dance fitness exercise with Latin rhythm including dance movements such as salsa, rumba, and merengue. Previous studies have shown that aerobic dance training programs do not necessarily produce ...
  • Effects Of Upper Body Exercise On Physiological Variables In Men And Women 

    Neal, KreShun (Department of Kinesiology, The University of Texas at ArlingtonExercise Science Research Laboratories, The University of Texas at ArlingtonCardiovascular Research Laboratory, The University of Texas at Arlington, 2015)
    Introduction: Monitoring exercise intensity during an exercise bout is important to provide feedback. Monitoring heart rate, blood lactate, and rate of perceived exertion provide useful information that give feedback to ...
  • Blood Lactate Clearance During Passive Recovery with Kinesiology Tape Following Maximal Exercise 

    Miller, Marissa A. (Department of Kinesiology, The University of Texas at ArlingtonExercise Science Research Laboratories, The University of Texas at ArlingtonCardiovascular Research Laboratory, The University of Texas at Arlington, 2015)
    NTRODUCTION: Kinesiology tape is an elastic cotton blend fabric strip with an adhesive backing. Many different manufacturers claim that their product reduces muscle fatigue and increases blood flow by lifting the skin up ...
  • THE EFFECTS OF PASSIVE, ACTIVE, AND BETA-ALANINE SUPPLEMENTED RECOVERY ON BLOOD LACTATE DURING ANAEROBIC EXERCISE 

    Hampshire, Tracey (Department of Kinesiology, The University of Texas at ArlingtonExercise Science Research Laboratories, The University of Texas at ArlingtonCardiovascular Laboratory, The University of Texas at Arlington, 2015)
    INTRODUCTION: It is widely shown through experimentation and knowledge of human physiology that an active recovery following high-intensity exercise removes lactic acid (BLa) more quickly than passive recovery. Some research ...
