Exercise is mitochondrial medicine for muscle

December 2019
Ashley N. Oliveira | David A. Hood

Mitochondria are vital organelles that provide energy for muscle function. When these organelles become dysfunctional, they produce less energy as well as excessive levels of reactive oxygen species...

High intensity interval training and molecular adaptive response of skeletal muscle

December 2019
Ferenc Torma | Zoltan Gombos | Matyas Jokai | Masaki Takeda | Tatsuya Mimura | Zsolt Radak

Increased cardiovascular fitness, V˙O2max, is associated with enhanced endurance capacity and a decreased rate of mortality. High intensity interval training (HIIT) is one of the best methods to increase...

Reversal of age-associated frailty by controlled physical exercise: The pre-clinical and clinical evidences
