  • Impact forces of jump landings between beginner and elite dancers 

    Walker, Tomeika (Exercise Science Research Laboratories, The University of Texas at Arlington.Biomechanics Research Laboratory, The University of Arlington at Texas., 2012-04-25)
    Unlike most athletic activities, dancers complete the vast majority of their training by concentrating solely on dance technique, with very little to no other forms of exercise. This limitation obviously increases probability ...
  • The effects of dance on mood, self esteem, and body composition. 

    Townley, Sara (Exercise Science Research Laboratories, The University of Texas at Arlington., 2012-04-25)
    Dance is rapidly growing as a widely recognized form of exercise, but how effective is it at improving body composition and what other effects may it have on a person’s body? Some research suggests that dance does improve ...
  • The placebo effect of the Power Balance Band on muscle strength, agility, power and RPE. 

    Wiley, Mary (Cardiovascular Research Laboratory, University of Texas at Arlington.Exercise Science Research Laboratories, University of Texas at Arlington., 2012-02-21)
    Power Balance advertises that its hologram bracelet improves exercise performance by harnessing the belief in the harmony of mind and body. There is no credible scientific evidence to support these claims. Previous research ...
  • The effects of sodium bicarbonate supplementation on physical performance. 

    Walling, Tyler (Cardiovascular Research Laboratory, University of Texas at Arlington.Exercise Science Laboratory, University of Texas at Arlington., 2012-02-21)
    A decrease in intramuscular pH, caused by excessive H+ production, has been known to be one of the causes of muscular fatigue during maximal exercise. The hydrogen ions are a result of anaerobic metabolism that is used to ...
  • The effects of nitric oxide precursor supplementation on maximal exercise and oxygen consumption. 

    Robertson, Matthew (Cardiovascular Research Laboratory, University of Texas at Arlington.Exercise Science Research Laboratories, University of Texas at Arlington., 2012-02-20)
    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of supplementation of a nitric oxide precursor, arginine-alpha-ketoglutarate, on maximal exercise and oxygen consumption
  • The effects of high and low glycemic index meals on endurance performance. 

    Rivas, Daniel (Cardiovascular Research Laboratory, University of Texas at Arlington.Exercise Science Research Laboratories, University of Texas at Arlington., 2012-02-20)
    The description of carbohydrates as either simple or complex is an insufficient way of classifying them. A metabolically more informative way of describing carbohydrates is the degree to which they raise blood glucose ...
  • What are the effects of a sheet energy strip on maximal exercise performance? 

    Rico, Nancy (Cardiovascular Research Laboratory, University of Texas at Arlington.Exercise Science Research Laboratories, University of Texas at Arlington., 2012-02-20)
    One of the newest ways to consume energy is by taking Sheet Energy Strips. This new supplement was recently introduced to the market in July 2011. These strips are placed on the tongue and dissolve 100 mg of caffeine per ...
  • The effects of nitric oxide on responese to a maximal stress test. 

    Vu, Andrew (Cardiovascular Research Laboratory, University of Texas at Arlington.Exercise Science Research Laboratories, University of Texas at Arlington., 2012-02-20)
    Maximal oxygen consumption (VO2 max) is the maximum capacity of the body to transport and utilize oxygen during incremental exercise. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of supplementing nitric ...
  • Effects of warm-up on anaerobic performance. 

    Prempeh, Andrea (Neuromuscular Research Laboratory and Biomechanics Laboratory, The University of Texas at Arlington.Exercise Science Research Laboratories, Unversity of Texas at Arlington., 2012-02-14)
    Warm-up is a common practice among athletes and those who partake in physical activity. According to McMillian et al. (2006) warm- up increases muscle and tendon elasticity, stimulates blood flow to the periphery, increases ...
  • The effect of exercise intervention on community-dwelling seniors' fitness level. 

    Hoops, Samuel (Center for Healthy Living and Longevity, University of Texas at Arlington., 2012-02-14)
    Amongst the many health problems plaguing the elderly, falling is of major concern. Approximately 30% of community-dwelling seniors older than 65 endure an injurious fall each year with the most serious outcome reported ...
  • The effect of caffeine on blood lactate after a maximal exercise test. 

    Holloway, Heidi. (Neuromuscular Research Laboratory, University of Texas at Arlington.Exercise Science Research Laboratories, University of Texas at Arlington., 2012-02-14)
    Numerous studies exist on the use of caffeine for both endurance exercise and short-term, higher intensity exercise. Consumption of caffeine is known to help athletes train harder and longer. This study examined the ...
  • The acute effects of Microhydrin on blood lactate during exercise test. 

    Nguyen, Hoa (Cardiovascular Research Laboratory, University of Texas at ArlingtonExercise Science Research Laboratories, University of Texas at Arlington, 2012-02-13)
    During an exercise bout, aerobic energy comes from oxidative phosphorylation. When the intensity exceeds the body’s ability to utilize oxygen, the body switches over to anaerobic sources for energy production. Adenosine ...
  • Differences in maximal oxygen uptake between a traditional diet and vegetarian diet. 

    Gonzalez, Adrian (Cardiovascular Research Laboratory, University of Texas at Arlington.Exercise Science Research Laboratories, University of Texas at Arlington., 2012-02-13)
    There has been a recent rise in vegetarian athletes around the world. Very few studies have been performed on vegetarian diets and maximal oxygen uptake.
  • Academic achievement in relation to improved physical activity 

    Duff, Cassie (Cardiovascular Research Laboratory, University of Texas at Arlington.Exercise Science Research Laboratories, University of Texas at Arlington., 2012-02-13)
    According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, children and adolescents require 60 minutes or more of physical activity per day. In 2006, only 3.8 percent of elementary schools, 7.9 percent of middle schools, ...
