    Abstract: By recognizing the sequential body configuration and time shifts, it is possible to calculate the dynamic moment of inertia. Body, arm, and leg models were proposed in which possible configurations and influential mass distribution sizes were studied. Described is the choice of optimal models for modeling dynamic moments of inertia which are repres... Show More

    Abstract: High-intensity interval training (HIIT) markedly activates muscle anaerobic glycolysis and increases blood lactate. As the liver is a major organ for lactate clearance from the bloodstream, it might improve gluconeogenesis from lactate (NEO-lac) after a period of resistance HIIT. NEO-lac was evaluated by in situ liver perfusion in mice subjected to... Show More

    Abstract: In Taiwan, the government interestingly requires primary school students to be able to swim 15 meters. By analyzing the drowning statics between Y2014 and Y2017, the program seems to be working. Understanding American Academy of Pediatrics’ recommendation that most children age 4 and older should learn to swim, the purpose of this paper was to unde... Show More

    Abstract: Athletic performance depends on athletic ability as well as body build. Training is a crucial factor for success. For this training, knowledge of initial levels of fitness as well as body build both is important. Physical training alters body build as well as internal physiological system in athletes. The main purpose of this study is to provide ca... Show More
