Effects of GLP-1 Infusion Upon Whole-body Glucose Uptake and Skeletal Muscle Perfusion During Fed-state in Older Men (2022)
Journal Article

Introduction Ageing skeletal muscles become both insulin resistant and atrophic. The hormone glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) facilitates postprandial glucose uptake as well as augmenting muscle perfusion, independent of insulin action. We thus hypot...

Green Tea Extract Concurrent with an Oral Nutritional Supplement Acutely Enhances Muscle Microvascular Blood Flow without Altering Leg Glucose Uptake in Healthy Older Adults (2021)
Journal Article

Postprandial macro-and microvascular blood flow and metabolic dysfunction manifest with advancing age, so vascular transmuting interventions are desirable. In this randomised, singleblind, placebo-controlled, crossover trial, we investigated the impa...

Short-term, equipment-free high intensity interval training elicits significant improvements in the cardiorespiratory fitness of young adults irrespective of supervision (2021)
Journal Article

Introduction: Serious health implications from having low levels of cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) and/or being overweight in young adulthood are carried forward into later life. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a time-effective, potent s...

Exploring the impact of COVID-19 on the willingness of older adults to participate in physiology research: views from past and potential volunteers (2021)
Journal Article

We explored the views of older (≥65 years) past and potential volunteers in regard to participating in physiology research during the COVID-19 pandemic. Using an online questionnaire and focus groups, we found that past volunteers (n=55) were more li...

The efficacy of ‘static’ training interventions for improving indices of cardiorespiratory fitness in premenopausal females (2018)
Journal Article
Herrod, P. J. J., Blackwell, J. E. M., Moss, B. F., Gates, A., Atherton, P. J., Lund, J. N., …Phillips, B. E. (2019). The efficacy of ‘static’ training interventions for improving indices of cardiorespiratory fitness in premenopausal females. European Journal of Applied Physiology, 119(3), 645-652. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00421-018-4054-1

PURPOSE: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death worldwide. Many risk factors for CVD can be modified pharmacologically; however, uptake of medications is low, especially in asymptomatic people. Exercise is also effective at reduc...
