Oxygen Consumption During Exercise: The Role Of Venous Occlusion, Tiffany Noel Saltzman Jan 2013

Oxygen Consumption During Exercise: The Role Of Venous Occlusion, Tiffany Noel Saltzman

LSU Master's Theses

Abstract Oxygen consumption during exercise is typically used to advance performance, determine fitness level, and make clinical diagnoses. The rate at which VO2 adjusts to and recovers from (i.e. on- and off- kinetics) a bout of exercise is typically associated with certain metabolic processes such as stores of PCr, ATP, replenishing myoglobin, hemoglobin, and removing metabolic waste. The ability of an individual to utilize these processes can determine the speed at which oxygen consumption rises and falls, and thus is associated with the health of the individual (i.e. faster=fitter; slower=unhealthy). The use of circulatory occlusion training ...


Perceptions Of The Motivational Climate And Gender Class Structure In Physical Education, Lauren E. Delgado Jan 2013

Perceptions Of The Motivational Climate And Gender Class Structure In Physical Education, Lauren E. Delgado

LSU Master's Theses

Many children do not engage in the recommended levels of physical activity, and they ten to become even less active during adolescence. Girls are less active then boys, and it is important to explore ways that physical education teachers can foster girls’ motivation to be more physically active. The specific research questions for this study were: (a) How does gender class structure affect girls’ perception of the motivational climate?; and (b) How do girls’ views of the motivation climate in different gender class structures relate to intentions to participate in physical activity outside of physical education? A phenomenological framework guided ...
