In The Shadow Of Obesity: The Female Triad, Jane Shimon 2012 Boise State University

In The Shadow Of Obesity: The Female Triad, Jane Shimon

Jane Shimon

Deliberate efforts to control body weight (e.g., purposeful dieting, prolonged fasting, self-induced vomiting, the use of diet pills), or unintentional restriction of energy intake that does not cover the costs of energy expenditure, all have a role in creating low energy stores (Golden, 2002; Manore, 2002). However, when young females develop patterns of unhealthy eating in conjunction with strenuous exercise during this window of bone accrual, menstrual dysfunction and low estrogen levels that may result can undo the beneficial effects of exercise on bone density (Drinkwater et al., 1984; Gordon, 2003; Miller, 2003) and place amenorrheic females at risk ...

Activity Choice And Title Ix, Jane Shimon

Jane Shimon

Yes, there are those states, districts, schools, and individual physical educators who have made positive changes in standards, curriculum, instruction, and assessment practices; however, the majority of secondary physical education departments still host a "one size fits all" program, whereby all students participate in the same traditional activities in the same, traditional, command style of teaching. [...] while some girls enrolled in a high school physical education program may want to learn and play flag football and a select group of boys may want to improve their fitness through step aerobics, they cannot.

Out-Of-Field Teaching In Physical Education Teacher Education: Should We Be Concerned?, Jane Shimon, Paul Brawdy 2012 Boise State University

Out-Of-Field Teaching In Physical Education Teacher Education: Should We Be Concerned?, Jane Shimon, Paul Brawdy

Jane Shimon

Physical education teacher education (PETE) is one of many disciplines in higher education responsible for preparing future educators. Education in general is increasingly politicized by public officials and scrutinized by the media, and the programs that train tomorrow's public school teachers are no exception. Between the politics that shape many of the choices in teacher preparation and teachers' own sense of what needs to be taught, PETE faculty struggle to answer the question, "How can we deliver the best possible teacher education program to our undergraduates?"

Effect Of Lower Body Positive Pressure On Cardiovascular Response At Various Degrees Of Head Up Tilt, Vladimir Ilyich Kostas 2012 University of Kentucky

Effect Of Lower Body Positive Pressure On Cardiovascular Response At Various Degrees Of Head Up Tilt, Vladimir Ilyich Kostas

Theses and Dissertations--Kinesiology and Health Promotion

Various models of simulated weightlessness and resulting cardiovascular effects have been researched in the last 50 years of space exploration. Examples of such models are the Alter-G (Alt-G) treadmill used for body unweighting and head-up-tilt (HUT) model each providing similar cardiovascular effects, but differing in their stimulation of vestibular centers . Advantages of using the Alt-G include: use of lower body positive pressure (LBPP) to simulate hypogravity, it acts as a countermeasure to alleviate negative cardiovascular effects of standing and provides a constant vestibular stimulus. In addition, the Alt-G shorts themselves may be providing a certain degree of LBPP, acting as ...
