A new issue of the Journal of Applied Physiology highlighting the physiology of sedentary behaviour and physical inactivity has just been published by the American Physiological Society.  The issue contains 4 articles focused on sedentary behaviour:

  1. Understanding multi-organ pathology from insufficient exercise
  2. Physical inactivity as the culprit of metabolic inflexibility: evidence from bed-rest studies
  3. Metabolic deterioration of the sedentary control group in clinical trials
  4. Metabolic disruptions induced by reduced ambulatory activity in free-living humans

The full articles can be accessed via the Journal of Applied Physiology website.  Thanks to SBRN members Patrice Brassard and Ash Routen for pointing out the special issue.
