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:
- Understanding multi-organ pathology from insufficient exercise
- Physical inactivity as the culprit of metabolic inflexibility: evidence from bed-rest studies
- Metabolic deterioration of the sedentary control group in clinical trials
- 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.
