- The metabolic transition speed between backward walking and runningElmarie Terblanche
Department of Medical Physiology and Biochemistry, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Stellenbosch, PO Box 19063, 7505, Tygerberg, Cape Town, South Africa
Eur J Appl Physiol 90:520-5. 2003..We conclude that the metabolic transition speed between backward walking and running is between 6 and 7 km(.)h(-1), which is lower than the metabolic transition speed for forward locomotion (7.2-7.9 km(.)h(-1))...
- The functional fitness capacity of adults with Down syndrome in South AfricaE Terblanche
Sport Science, Stellenbosch University, Cape Town, South Africa
J Intellect Disabil Res 57:826-36. 2013..The purpose of the study was to establish the functional fitness capacity and predictors of performance of DS adults...
- The effect of backward locomotion training on the body composition and cardiorespiratory fitness of young womenE Terblanche
Department of Medical Physiology and Biochemistry, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Stellenbosch, PO Box 19063, Tygerberg 7505, Cape Town, South Africa
Int J Sports Med 26:214-9. 2005..The findings suggest that backward walk/run training improves cardiorespiratory fitness for both forward and backward exercise and causes significant changes in body composition in young women...
- A reappraisal of the blood glucose homeostat which comprehensively explains the type 2 diabetes mellitus-syndrome X complexJohan H Koeslag
Department of Medical Physiology, University of Stellenbosch, Tygerberg 7505, South Africa
J Physiol 549:333-46. 2003....
- Evolution of cooperation: cooperation defeats defection in the cornfield modelJohan H Koeslag
Department of Medical Physiology, University of Stellenbosch, P O Box 19063, 7505 Tygerberg, South Africa
J Theor Biol 224:399-410. 2003..A sexual preference for the most common phenotype in the neighborhood then makes that phenotype more common still. Once this occurs cooperation's spread becomes almost inevitable...
- Assessment of a peak flow whistle in nonasthmatic childrenE Terblanche
Department of Medical Physiology and Biochemistry, University of Stellenbosch, Tygerberg, Cape Town, South Africa
Pediatr Pulmonol 27:428-31. 1999..These findings suggest that the whistle sound of the peak flow whistle was a significant incentive, which resulted in greater maximal expiratory efforts...
- A computer simulation of free-range exercise in the laboratoryE Terblanche
Department of Medical Physiology and Biochemistry, University of Stellenbosch, Tygerberg, Cape Town, South Africa 7505
J Appl Physiol (1985) 87:1386-91. 1999..Through a computer simulation, we have devised a laboratory exercise protocol that not only is physiologically real but also overcomes the artificiality of most traditional laboratory exercise protocols...
- Modeling upper and lower limb muscle volume by bioelectrical impedance analysisAlexander Stahn
Department of Sport Science, Stellenbosch University, Private Bag X1, 7602 Stellenbosch, South Africa
J Appl Physiol (1985) 103:1428-35. 2007..8% (500 kHz), 10.6% (50 kHz); conventional: 11.8% (500 kHz), 11.4% (50 kHz)]. It was concluded that modeling of multiple BIA measurements has advantages for the determination of lower limb muscle volume in healthy, active adult men...
- The magnitude and duration of post-exercise hypotension after land and water exercisesElmarie Terblanche
Department of Sport Science, Stellenbosch University, Matieland, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Eur J Appl Physiol 112:4111-8. 2012..These results suggest that water exercise is a safe alternative exercise modality for individuals with suspected and known hypertension...
- Field and laboratory correlates of performance in competitive cross-country mountain bikersLouise Prins
Department of Sport Science, University of Stellenbosch, Stellenbosch, South Africa
J Sports Sci 25:927-35. 2007..We conclude that cross-country mountain biking is similar to uphill or hilly road cycling. Further research is required to design sport-specific tests to determine the remaining unexplained variance in performance...
- VO(2max) prediction from multi-frequency bioelectrical impedance analysisAlexander Stahn
Institute of Sports Medicine, Free University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany
Physiol Meas 29:193-203. 2008..In short, whole-body BIA marginally improves the accuracy of nonexercise VO(2max) prediction models and its advantage is most pronounced in individuals with particularly low VO(2max)...
- Estimation of maximal oxygen uptake by bioelectrical impedance analysisAlexander Stahn
Institute of Sports Medicine, University Hospital Charite, Campus Benjamin Franklin, Free University of Berlin, Germany
Eur J Appl Physiol 96:265-73. 2006....
