New Issue of Exercise and Sport Sciences Reviews Available Online

The April 2017 issue of Exercise and Sport Sciences Reviews is available* online now! The April issue of ESSR includes:
  • Perspectives for Progress – “Mitochondria Initiate and Regulate Sarcopenia” by Stephen E. Alway, Junaith S. Mohamed and Matthew J. Myers. The key figure from their article is highlighted on the cover of this issue of ESSR.
    • Sarcopenia is characterized by fiber atrophy and loss of fibers. Signaling from accumulation of dysfunctional mitochondria leads to cell death and localized protein loss and, if unchecked, widespread loss of muscle fibers.
  • Video Abstract and Journal Club features for the article “Joint Loading in Runners Does Not Initiate Knee Osteoarthritis” by author Ross H. Miller.
    • Why might the natural expectation be that runners would have a very high risk of developing knee osteoarthritis? Is it surprising to you that runners do not seem to have a high risk of this disease?
  • Three articles on the topic of cardiovascular function and exercise: sex differences in vascular adaptations; sedentary behavior and disease risk; and uncoupling of arterial-ventricular function.
  • Two papers covering clinical issues: topics include the athlete’s heart and spinal pain.
*Access to journal content published within the past 12 months varies by member type. ACSM Professional members must login at the ACSM website and then click on the “Access My Journals” link. more
