  • Effects Of Carbohydrate Exercise On Muscle Endurance

    Effects of Carbohydrate Ingestion Pre- Grip Strength Exercise on Muscle Endurance In the world of fitness, nutritional supplements are ingested with intent to maximize the results of strength exercise. In achieving favorable adaptations to exercise, sufficient nutrient consumption is critical. Also important is the timing of nutrient consumption, as greater benefits are observed when ingestion takes place in a time frame close to the exercise (Laurenson & Dubé, 2014). Previous literature…

  • Overview Of Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA)

    Spinal Muscular Atrophy, or SMA, was discovered in the 80’s by two doctors. Early in the 1980’s Doctors Werdnig and Hoffman talked of a disorder of progressive muscular weakness starting in babies, leading to early death. The disease was characterized as a loss of anterior horn cell. The lower motor neuron degeneration has been confirmed to be caused by a loss of anterior horn cells in the cranial nerve nuclei and spinal cord. The entire body is affected from Spinal Muscular Atrophy. SMA…

  • Skeletal Muscle Contraction Case Study

    This contraction pulls on the corresponding bone at its insertion point. Stationary bone is called the point of origin for the skeletal muscle, while the one which moves is known as the point of insertion. This together movement in skeletal and muscular systems cause the body movements and actions. When the signal to relax is received, muscle moves back to its original position and so do the bones. Section C 1. Outline the composition of bone, the structure of a long bone and explain the…
