• The Effects of Cold Water Immersion and Active Recovery on Molecular Factors That Regulate Growth and Remodeling of Skeletal Muscle After Resistance Exercise 

      Peake, Jonathan M.; Markworth, James F.; Cumming, Kristoffer Toldnes; Aas, Sigve Nyvik; Roberts, Llion A.; Raastad, Truls; Cameron-Smith, David; Figueiredo, Vandré C. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Regular postexercise cooling attenuates muscle hypertrophy, yet its effects on the key molecular factors that regulate muscle growth and remodeling are not well characterized. In the present study, nine men completed two ...
    • Ibuprofen ingestion does not affect markers of post-exercise muscle inflammation 

      Vella, Luke; Markworth, James F.; Paulsen, Gøran; Raastad, Truls; Peake, Jonathan M.; Snow, Rod J.; Cameron-Smith, David; Russel, Aaron P. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016-03-29)
      Purpose: We investigated if oral ingestion of ibuprofen influenced leucocyte recruitment and infiltration following an acute bout of traditional resistance exercise Methods: Sixteen male subjects were divided into two ...
    • Impact of resistance exercise on ribosome biogenesis is acutely regulated by post‐exercise recovery strategies 

      Figueiredo, Vandré C.; Roberts, Llion A.; Markworth, James F.; Barnett, Matthew P. G.; Coombes, Jeff S.; Raastad, Truls; Peake, Jonathan M.; Cameron-Smith, David (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016-01-26)
      Muscle hypertrophy occurs following increased protein synthesis, which requires activation of the ribosomal complex. Additionally, increased translational capacity via elevated ribosomal RNA (rRNA) synthesis has also been ...
    • MicroRNAs in muscle: characterizing the powerlifter phenotype 

      D'Souza, Randall F.; Bjørnsen, Thomas; Zeng, Nina; Aasen, Kirsten M. M.; Raastad, Truls; Cameron-Smith, David; Mitchell, Cameron J. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017-06-07)
      Powerlifters are the epitome of muscular adaptation and are able to generate extreme forces. The molecular mechanisms underpinning the significant capacity for force generation and hypertrophy are not fully elucidated. ...
    • Post-exercise cold water immersion attenuates acute anabolic signalling and long-term adaptations in muscle to strength training 

      Roberts, Llion A.; Raastad, Truls; Markworth, James F.; Figueiredo, Vandre C.; Egner, Ingrid M.; Shield, Anthony; Cameron-Smith, David; Coombes, Jeff S.; Peake, Jonathan M. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015-08-13)
      We investigated functional, morphological and molecular adaptations to strength training exercise and cold water immersion (CWI) through two separate studies. In one study, 21 physically active men strength trained for 12 ...
    • Type 1 Muscle Fiber Hypertrophy after Blood Flow–restricted Training in Powerlifter 

      Bjørnsen, Thomas; Wernbom, Mathias; Kirketeig, Alexander; Paulsen, Gøran; Samnøy, Lars Edvin; Bækken, Lasse Vestli; Cameron-Smith, David; Berntsen, Sveinung; Raastad, Truls (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      PURPOSE: To investigate the effects of blood flow restricted resistance exercise (BFRRE) on myofiber areas (MFA), number of myonuclei and satellite cells (SC), muscle size and strength in powerlifters. METHODS Seventeen ...
