Richard Houghson, Kinesiology professor and his team discover that women can process oxygen about 30% more quickly than men when they start to exercise, indicating a superior aerobic system. “It could change the way we approach assessment and athletic training down the road,” said Thomas Beltrame, lead author on the study.
The study is published in Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is co-ordinated within the Office of Indigenous Relations.
