A number of factors clearly influence the uptake and appearance of pseudoephedrine in the blood and these are not yet fully understood. Combined with subsequent differences in plasma pseudoephedrine between individuals, this may partially explain the present findings and also the inconsistencies in performance following pseudoephedrine administration in previous studies.]]> Wed 11 Jan 2017 13:16:09 AEST ]]> Changes in eating attitudes and behaviours in a sample of female university students studying health degrees: a 12-months follow-up study Wed 05 Jul 2017 15:23:51 AEST ]]> Importance of Standardized DXA Protocol for Assessing Physique Changes in Athletes Wed 01 Jun 2016 15:28:52 AEST ]]> Influence of subject presentation on interpretation of body composition change after 6 months of self-selected training and diet in athletic males Tue 29 May 2018 08:04:47 AEST ]]> Physiological implications of preparing for a natural male bodybuilding competition  .05).

Bland–Altman analysis indicated that DXA VAT underestimated MRI VAT by ~ 25 cm2, with relatively wide limits of agreement (− 24.0 to 75.6 cm2). Conclusions: Given the size of rugby union athletes, and the association between elevated VAT and cardiometabolic complications in “supersized” athletes from other sports, further investigation into VAT and other markers of cardiometabolic disease in rugby union populations is warranted. Further, DXA was found to underestimate VAT compared to the criterion MRI in this athletic population.]]> Mon 08 Apr 2019 15:28:42 AEST ]]> Chronic ketogenic low carbohydrate high fat diet has minimal effects on acid–base status in elite athletes 1 week) interventions in elite athletes has not been determined. Using a non‐randomized, parallel design, we examined the effect of adaptations to 21 days of a ketogenic low carbohydrate high fat (LCHF) or periodized carbohydrate (PCHO) diet on pre‐ and post‐exercise blood pH, and concentrations of bicarbonate (HCO3 −) and lactate (La−) in comparison to a high carbohydrate (HCHO) control. Twenty‐four (17 male and 7 female) elite‐level race walkers completed 21 days of either LCHF (n = 9), PCHO (n = 7), or HCHO (n = 8) under controlled diet and training conditions. At baseline and post‐intervention, blood pH, blood [HCO3 −], and blood [La−] were measured before and after a graded exercise test. Net endogenous acid production (NEAP) over the previous 48–72 h was also calculated from monitored dietary intake. LCHF was not associated with significant differences in blood pH, [HCO3 −], or [La−], compared with the HCHO diet pre‐ or post‐exercise, despite a significantly higher NEAP (mEq∙day−1) (95% CI = [10.44; 36.04]). Our results indicate that chronic dietary interventions are unlikely to influence acid–base status in elite athletes, which may be due to pre‐existing training adaptations, such as an enhanced buffering capacity, or the actions of respiratory and renal pathways, which have a greater influence on regulation of acid–base status than nutritional intake. © 2018 by the authors.

We included TBWBIS estimates in a 3-C model and contrasted this and the 2-C model against the reference 3-C model using TBWD2O. TBW of 29 males (32.4 ± 8.5 years; 183.4 ± 7.2 cm; 92.5 ± 9.9 kg; 27.5 ± 2.6 kg/m2) was measured using SFB7 and D2O. Body density was measured by BODPOD, with body composition calculated using the Siri equation. TBWBIS values were consistent with TBWD2O (SEE = 2.65L; TE = 2.6L) as were %BF values from the 3-C model (BODPOD + TBWBIS) with the 3-C reference model (SEE = 2.20%; TE = 2.20%). For subjects with TBW more than 1% from the assumed 73.72% (n=16), %BF from the 2-C model differed significantly from the reference 3-C model (Slope 0.6888; Intercept 5.093). The BIS SFB7TM measured TBW accurately compared to D2O. The 2C model with an assumed TBW of 73.72% introduces error in the estimation of body composition. We recommend TBW should be measured, either via the traditional D2O method or when resources are limited, with BIS, so that body composition estimates are enhanced. The BIS can be accurately used in 3C equations to better predict TBW and BF% in resistance trained males compared to a 2C model.]]> Fri 08 Apr 2016 08:43:59 AEST ]]> A–Z of nutritional supplements: dietary supplements, sports nutrition foods and ergogenic aids for health and performance–Part 20 Fri 08 Apr 2016 08:18:03 AEST ]]> Effect of Sodium Bicarbonate on [HCO3–], pH, and Gastrointestinal Symptoms 75% was a substantial change. Results: [HCO3–] and pH were substantially greater than in placebo for all other ingestion protocols at almost all time points. When NaHCO3 was coingested with food, the greatest [HCO3–] (30.9 mmol/kg) and pH (7.49) and lowest incidence of GI symptoms were observed. The greatest incidence of GI side effects was observed 90 min after ingestion of 0.3 g/kg NaHCO3 solution. Conclusions: The changes in pH and [HCO3–] for the 8 NaHCO3-ingestion protocols were similar, so an optimal protocol cannot be recommended. However, the results suggest that NaHCO3 coingested with a high-carbohydrate meal should be taken 120–150 min before exercise to induce substantial blood alkalosis and reduce GI symptoms.]]> Fri 08 Apr 2016 08:02:48 AEST ]]> Losing, Gaining and Making Weight for Athletes Fri 07 Nov 2014 10:55:56 AEST ]]> Assessment of Hydration in Athletes Fri 06 Dec 2019 15:50:52 AEST ]]> Caffeine content of pre-workout supplements commonly used by Australian consumers Fri 05 Apr 2019 13:33:45 AEST ]]> Dietary Intake of Competitive Bodybuilders 6 months from competition) or immediate post-competition period and lowest during competition preparation (≤6 months from competition) or competition week.

The contribution of diet supplements was also often not reported. When supplements were reported, intakes of some micronutrients were excessive (~1000 % of US Recommended Dietary Allowance) and above the tolerable upper limit. Conclusion: This review demonstrates that literature describing the dietary intake practices of competitive bodybuilders is dated and often of poor quality. Intake reporting required better specificity and details of the rationale underpinning the use. The review suggests that high-quality contemporary research is needed in this area, with the potential to uncover dietary strategies worthy of scientific exploration.]]> Fri 04 Mar 2016 12:20:09 AEST ]]> Body mass management of lightweight rowers: nutritional strategies and performance implications Fri 04 Mar 2016 12:20:09 AEST ]]> Effects of Daily Activities on Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry Measurements of Body Composition in Active People Fri 04 Mar 2016 12:19:55 AEST ]]> Conducting an Acute Intense Interval Exercise Session During the Ramadan Fasting Month: What Is the Optimal Time of the Day?
