Sex-differences in integrative determinants of oxygen uptake and biomolecular markers of exercise training, Canada
Objective: Physical activity is a necessity for healthy living and dependent on the delivery of oxygen to the working muscles to generate energy. However, our understanding of the body’s response to physical activity has primarily been defined using the “typical 70-kg man”. Substantial “sex-based differences” in the lungs, heart, blood vessels, blood, and muscle may lead men and women to use different mechanisms to deliver oxygen and produce energy during activity. Moreover, the molecules released into the blood may indicate how these organs may use different communication strategies to enable these mechanisms.
