Peripheral impairments of oxidative metabolism after a 10-day bed rest are upstream of mitochondrial respiration

In order to identify peripheral biomarkers of impaired oxidative metabolism during exercise following a 10-day bed rest, 10 males performed an incremental exercise (to determine peak pulmonary V˙O 2 (V˙O 2 p)) and moderate-intensity exercises, before …

Peripheral impairments of oxidative metabolism after a 10-day bed rest are upstream of mitochondrial respiration

Effect of acute nitrite infusion on contractile economy and metabolism in isolated skeletal muscle in situ during hypoxia

Key points: Increased plasma nitrite concentrations may have beneficial effects on skeletal muscle function. The physiological basis explaining these observations has not been clearly defined and it may involve positive effects on muscle contraction …

Blood flow restricted resistance exercise and reductions in oxygen tension attenuate mitochondrial H2O2 emission rates in human skeletal muscle

Key points: Blood flow restricted resistance exercise (BFR-RE) is capable of inducing comparable adaptations to traditional resistance exercise (RE), despite a lower total exercise volume. It has been suggested that an increase in reactive oxygen …

Separate and combined effects of a 10-d exposure to hypoxia and inactivity on oxidative function in vivo and mitochondrial respiration ex vivo in humans

An integrative evaluation of oxidative metabolism was carried out in 9 healthy young men (age, 24.1 1.7 yr mean=SD) before (CTRL) and after a 10-day horizontal bed rest carried out in normoxia (N-BR) or hypoxia (H-BR, FIO2 0.147). H-BR was designed …

Skeletal muscle Oxidative function in vivo and ex vivo in athletes with marked hypertrophy from resistance training

Oxidative function during exercise was evaluated in 11 young athletes with marked skeletal muscle hypertrophy induced by long-term resistance training (RTA; body mass 102.6 ± 7.3 kg, mean ± SD) and 11 controls (CTRL; body mass 77.8 ± 6.0 kg). …
