Journal Article
SWINTON, P.A., STEWART, A.D., KEOGH, J.W.L., AGOURIS, I. and LLOYD, R. 2011. Kinematic and kinetic analysis of maximal velocity deadlifts performed with and without the inclusion of chain resistance. Journal of strength and conditioning research [online], 25(11), pages 3163-3174. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1519/JSC.0b013e318212e389

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the deadlift could be effectively incorporated with explosive resistance training (ERT) and to investigate whether the inclusion of chains enhanced the suitability of the deadlift for ERT. Twenty-t... Read More about Kinematic and kinetic analysis of maximal velocity deadlifts performed with and without the inclusion of chain resistance..

Alterations in the macronutrient content of the diet and the effects on body composition, cardiovascular disease risk and the control of energy metabolism in obese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. (2011)
Thesis
GRYKA, A. 2011. Alterations in the macronutrient content of the diet and the effects on body composition, cardiovascular disease risk and the control of energy metabolism in obese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Several studies have shown that a low-carbohydrate diet (LCHOD) can improve glycaemic control in people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). The objective of the current study was to compare two ways of administration of a LCHOD - self-prepared mea...

Effect of weight loss on adipokine levels in obese patients. (2011)
Journal Article
ROLLAND, C., HESSION, M. and BROOM, I. 2011. Effect of weight loss on adipokine levels in obese patients. Diabetes, metabolic syndrome and obesity: targets and therapy [online], 4, pages 315-323. Available from: https://doi.org/10.2147/DMSO.S22788

Adipose tissue functions as an endocrine organ by releasing adipokines, which have important roles in the regulation of inflammation and insulin sensitivity. Although there is evidence of improvements in the circulating levels of adipokines with weig... Read More about Effect of weight loss on adipokine levels in obese patients..

A biomechanical analysis of straight and hexagonal barbell deadlifts using submaximal loads. (2011)
Journal Article
SWINTON, P.A., STEWART, A., AGOURIS, I., KEOGH, J.W.L. and LLOYD, R. 2011. A biomechanical analysis of straight and hexagonal barbell deadlifts using submaximal loads.

Global warming: is weight loss a solution? (2011)
Journal Article
GRYKA, A., BROOM, J., and ROLLAND, C. 2012. Global warming: is weight loss a solution? International journal of obesity [online], 36(3), pages 474-476. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1038/ijo.2011.151

The current climate change has been most likely caused by the increased greenhouse gas emissions. We have looked at the major greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide (CO2), and estimated the reduction in the CO2 emissions that would occur with the theoretical...
