Professor Harm Kuipers looks back

Harm Kuipers, emeritus professor of the University of Maastricht, talks to Babette Pluim, BJSM deputy editor, about the meaning of sport, the challenges of being an editor, and his most exciting scientific research projects. These are overtraining, delayed onset muscle soreness and glycogen restoration during exercise. Harm recently wrote his autobiography “Starting on two left skates”. He is a former elite athlete and became world all-round speed skating champion in 1975.See also:Pre-exercise ingestion of carbohydrate and transient hypoglycemia during exercise muscle damage and muscle strength after incremental number of isometric and forced lengthening contractions and overtraining in horses subjected to increasing training loads feeding and glycogen synthesis during exercise in man
