  • Influence of the quality of the opponent on physical, technical, and
           tactical performance of elite female soccer players in international
           competitions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose Soccer is a complex sport that depends on several physical performance and technical-tactical factors. Therefore, we aimed to: i) analyze the differences in physical, technical, and tactical performance of one international team when competing against opponents divided by their world ranking (i.e., higher ranked [HR] and lower ranked [LR]) ii) explore the associations between physical, technical, and tactical measures obtained when playing against HR and LR teams. Methods Twenty-seven elite female soccer players (n = 27; age: 27 ± 3.4 years; height: 162.8 ± 4.32 cm; body mass: 60.5 ± 4.6 kg) selected from a South American international team during 34 official FIFA matches volunteered to participate in this study. Physical measurements were recorded using Global Positioning System (Catapult Sports®, 10 Hz), and the post-match rate of perceived exertion (RPE) was also reported. Technical and tactical variables were recorded through an analysis platform (InStat Footbal®). Results When compared to LR, HR matches showed significantly trivial to moderate higher RPE, total distance (TD), meters per minute (MM), and player load (PL) (p < 0.001) and small to moderate lower rates in the number of passes and effectiveness (p < 0.001). Furthermore, small to moderate correlations (p = 0.026) were observed for LR and HR matches during the offensive and defensive phases. Conclusion Physical, technical, and tactical performance are significantly affected by the opponents ranking. Furthermore, the relationships observed between the physical, technical, and tactical factors indicates that physical performance has a similar effect on technical and tactical variables, regardless of the level of opposition.

  • Affectivity responses across different resistance training variables in
           older adults: a systematic review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Resistance training (RT) programs for older adults typically involve manipulating variables such as load, volume of sets, frequency, and exercise selection. Overall, these variables may affect motivation, enjoyment, and adherence in older adults. Therefore, understanding the affective responses of older adults to these RT variables is crucial to designing effective and sustainable exercise programs. We aimed to investigate systematically the affective responses across different RT variables in older adults. We searched observational and experimental studies on MEDLINE (via PubMed), EMBASE, SPORTSDiscus, Web of Science, SCOPUS, and LILACS. Eligibility criteria were: (a) older adults (≥ 60 years); (b) experimental or observational study design (e.g., cross-sectional study, prospective cohort, etc.); (c) studies that investigated RT as exercise mode; and (d) studies that explored the affective responses (i.e., feeling, enjoyment) of older adults to RT variables (e.g., load, cadence, exercise order). Our main findings revealed that the load variable has received more attention in research. There was a trend among older adults favoring low-load RT protocols over high-load ones. In addition, most of studies showed that these preferences were associated with more positive affective responses, suggesting that individualized exercise programs aligned with older adults' preferences may enhance the effectiveness of RT regimens. In conclusion, our study emphasizes the importance of considering the load variable in resistance training for older adults. We found a preference for low-load protocols, linked to more positive emotional responses. Exercise programs to individual preferences may enhance the effectiveness of resistance training regimens in this demographic.

  • Test–retest reliability and validity of a newly instrumented device for
           measuring trunk extensor muscles endurance in healthy male participants: a
           randomized cross-over study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose Measuring trunk extensor muscle endurance is important for identifying non-specific low back pain (LBP) risk factors and prognostic indicators, planning treatment goals, and measuring patient progress. This randomized cross-over study evaluated the reliability and validity of a newly instrumented device for measuring lumbar spine extensor muscle endurance. Methods Thirty healthy men participated in this study. The Biering-Sørensen test (for the endurance time) and the newly invented device (for the number of repetitions) were applied to measure lumbar spine extensor muscle endurance in two separate weeks at a similar time of a day and with the same rater. Test–retest reliability and validity of the devices were examined via an intra-class correlation coefficient [ICC (2,1)], 95% confidence intervals (95% CI), standard errors of the measurement (SEM), minimal detectable change (MDC), and Pearson’s correlation coefficient, respectively. Results Test–retest reliability of the newly instrumented device demonstrated an excellent level of reliability [ICC (2,1): 0.969; 95% CI: 0.934–0.985; SEM: 2.65 repetition; MDC: 3.75 repetition]; while a moderate to good degree of test–retest reliability was found between the Biering-Sørensen test measurements [ICC (2,1): 0.884; 95% CI: 0.758–0.944; SEM: 13.31 s; MDC: 18.82 s]. Compared to the Biering-Sørensen test, the newly instrumented device had a moderately positive correlation (r = 0.283). Conclusion The newly instrumented device demonstrated adequate reliability and validity compared with the Biering-Sørensen test. Future studies should assess its clinometric properties in patients with musculoskeletal pain also including female participants.

  • Stretch–shortening cycle analysis: acute effect of post-activation
           potentiation on knee muscles during counter movement jump and instep
           kicking in soccer female players

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose The present research is aimed to determine the acute effect of post-activation potentiation (PAP) with squat and leg extension machine, static, dynamic, and no stretching warm up on stretch–shortening cycle (SSC) of knee extensors muscles during countermovement jump (CMJ) and soccer instep kicking (SIK) in female soccer players. Methods Thirty semi-professional female soccer players with a mean age of 24.5 ± 2.63 years, were chosen randomly. Then, during non-successive days, all groups performed one of the warm-up programs regularly on working days (static, dynamic and no-stretching and PAPs). Then they performed CMJ and SIK in order to measure the eccentric knee angular velocity (EKAV), concentric knee angular velocity (CKAV), knee extension power (KEP), jump height (JH), and ball velocity (BV) through biomechanical evaluation. Results Findings showed that there was a significant increase in EKAV, CKAV, KEP, HJ, and BV after warm up PAPs compared to other methods in both CMJ and SIK. Conclusion Based on obtained results, it can be said that among the warm up methods and their effects on SSC of the knee for the extensor muscles, both PAP methods were the most effective methods in improving and increasing EKAV, CKAV, KEP, JH, BV during CMJ and SIK in professional female soccer players.

  • Effects of multi-disciplinary family interventions versus isolated
           interventions in psychosocial and behavioral pairs of overweight
           adolescents: a pragmatic trial

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Aim To evaluate the effects of multi-disciplinary family and individual interventions on the psychosocial and behavioral parameters of obese adolescents. Methods This study is a pragmatic trial with parallel groups and repeated measures. Twenty-four overweight adolescents finished 12 weeks of intervention and were included in the statistical analysis. They were allocated into two convenience groups: a group with parents (PG) and a group without parents, i.e., alone (AG). The sample of adolescents was evaluated through the Behavior Change Readiness Questionnaire (BCRQ) and the Depression, Anxiety, and Stress Scale for Adolescents (DASS-A). In addition, parents performed the Parenting Style and Dimensions Questionnaire (PSDQ). The subjects participated in a multi-disciplinary Obesity Treatment Program (MOTP), in which theoretical and practical activities, three times a week (theoretical activities: nutritional education and psychoeducation, both once a week, lasting 30 min a day) and practical activities with physical exercises lasting 1 h a day. Results The age of adolescents was 13.8 ± 2.4 years old. For the QPMC, a time effect was found, with an increased readiness to change levels for portion control (p = 0.009) and control of fat consumption (p = 0.008) after the interventions. There was no time effect for fruit and vegetable consumption and physical activity (p > 0.05 for both comparisons). No interaction effect was found between groups for any of the behavioral change domains of BCRQ (p > 0.05). DASS-A showed a time effect with reduced stress (p = 0.041) and depression levels (p = 0.036) after the interventions. There was no effect of time for anxiety and no interaction effect between groups for any of the components of DASS-A (p > 0.05 for all comparisons). As for the parental styles evaluated by the BCRQ, the parents of both groups showed predominantly democratic styles throughout the MOTP. Conclusion Despite the proven effectiveness of MOTPs in preventing and treating obesity and its comorbidities in adolescents, participation with parents still cannot be considered a predictive factor for significant differences in the parameters evaluated in 12 weeks of intervention.

  • Effect of exercise on gait and postural control in patients with
           chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy: a systematic review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Background Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is an adverse effect of frequently used chemotherapy agents in cancer treatment. It is a painful and dose-limiting condition of the peripheral nerves. Exercise is known to limit the progression of CIPN and reduce sensory and motor symptoms. CIPN can be disabling as it leads to loss of balance control, gait disturbances and frequent falls. The study aims to review the effectiveness of different exercise interventions in improving gait speed and postural control in individuals who underwent chemotherapy. Method Randomized controlled trials assessing the effect of exercise on postural control and gait are selected. A search strategy was performed in PubMed, PEDro, Scopus, and Web of Science databases. Data were extracted using the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA) guidelines. Result A total of 1450 search results were found, and 4 studies were selected. Exercises like endurance training, balance exercises and sensorimotor training are beneficial in CIPN for reducing postural sway and increasing gait speed. Twice weekly sessions for 30 min each for 4–18 weeks are common exercise regime given to the participants. A combination of more than one type of exercise was shown to be effective in reducing CIPN symptoms. Conclusion Exercise is beneficial in improving the postural control and gait parameters in individuals with CIPN. Further studies are required to analyze the potential effect of different exercises to improve gait and balance.

  • Lower flexibility and range of motion in prepubertal soccer players: a
           pilot study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose Even if sport practice is essential for children’s health, in the last years, an increased number of studies recorded injuries from the age of 12 years. In the multifactorial nature of injuries, a reduction in flexibility and/or range of motion is hypothesized to play a role. Thus, the aim of this study is to analyze the flexibility and range of motion of soccer players in the prepubertal age. Methods In this pilot transversal study, we investigated through various mobility tests (ankle wall test, sit and reach test, and active straight leg raise test) a population of 78 prepubertal soccer players (male, 12 ÷ 14 years old, BMI 18.472 ± 2.18 kg/m2). Results The results showed a significant reduction in their flexibility and range of motion compared to the reference values reported in clinical guidelines, and this decrement increased with the years of soccer history and age. Conclusions The lower flexibility and range of motion confirmed the importance of planning an adequate training to prevent their limitation with repercussions on body growth.

  • A more thorough analysis of the countermovement jump demonstrates changes
           in neuromuscular performance during pre and early competitive season in
           elite futsal players

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose This study aimed to investigate the variations on vertical jump and sprint performance during the first weeks of a futsal season. Methods Eleven elite futsal players, competing in Spain’s 1st division over the season 2019–2020, performed two countermovement jumps (CMJ) on a force platform and a sprint test of 10-m at three different timepoints: before the pre-season; immediately after the pre-season; and early in-season. A one-way repeated measure ANOVA with post-hoc pairwise comparisons and effect sizes (ESs) were used. Results Non-significant and trivial changes were observed in CMJ height (p = 0.830; ES = 0.12) among the three timepoints. However, significant and moderate positive changes among seasons were found in specific CMJ kinetic variables such as: modified reactive strength index (p = 0.011; ES = 0.60), eccentric (Ecc) peak force (p = 0.011; ES = 0.65), Ecc deceleration rate of force development (p = 0.008; ES = 0.60), Ecc duration (p = 0.040; ES = 0.89), and concentric (p = 0.030; ES = 0.45) and landing peak force (p = 0.012; ES = 0.68). A significant time interaction was observed in sprint performance (p = 0.038; ES = 0.58); however, non-significant and small-moderate changes were detected in sprint time when compared among periods. Conclusion In conclusion, CMJ kinetic variables should be incorporated and analyzed alongside more standard measures (CMJ height) to monitor performance in elite futsal players, as changes of substantial magnitude were observed in phase-specific metrics during the pre-season and the initial stages of the competitive calendar.

  • Perceptions/opinions about the formation of the bachelor program in
           exercise and sports science by students aimed at the new professional
           profile of the basic kinesiologist

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose In Italy, the training of sports workers was carried out through national sports federations (NSF), sports promotion bodies (SPB) and associated disciplines (AD) since there were no laws regarding specific professional figures on a par with other labor sectors. New and recent legislation stipulates that specific training is the responsibility of universities, with the 3-year bachelor's degree program in Exercise and Sports Science (L22) for the cultural and scientific profiling of the new professional figure of the basic kinesiologist. The study measures the perceptions and opinions that students have with respect to the training in their studies and also analyze any gaps in terms of knowledge and skills to be applied in the professional field. Methods A questionnaire was administered to 30 students consisting of 15 questions divided into three sections: Sect. 1 of sample identification, Sect. 2 assessing perceptions on knowledge acquired, and Sect. 3 assessing perceptions on skills learned. A chi-square (χ2) analysis was performed to check for significant differences. Results The results showed a difference of opinion. Although 84.2% of the sample thought highly of the training offered, discordant data emerged on the knowledge and skills taught within the courses of study. Although this high percentage is convinced and entrusts their training to the university pathway, it is found that 19% have qualifications issued by NSF, 4.8% by other and 1.6% by SPB. In addition there is significance P = .001 demonstrating liking with respect to the training received. Conclusion The basic kinesiologist is a key figure within sports organizations, and university training is also considered positive by those trained by NSF, SPB, and AD.

  • Neuromuscular status and training load during 1 week of international
           training camp: the case of the U-21 football national team from the Czech
           Republic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The study aimed to describe the neuromuscular status and training load in the U-21 soccer football from the Czech Republic during an international training camp. Sixteen players were sampled with data from the neuromuscular status by countermovement jump (CMJ), external load by global positioning system (GPS) parameters and internal load by session rate of perceived exertion (RPE). The camp consisted of 5 days of field training and 2 days of friendly matches. CMJ was performed on days 1, 4 and 7. The comparison of variables during the camp was tested by the Friedman test, one-way repeated measure ANOVA, effect size (ES) and percentage of change (p < 0.05). A significant improvement of 6% in jump performance was found from day 1 (49.7 ± 3.98 cm) to day 7 (52.8 ± 4.52 cm) (p < 0.001), with a moderate effect (ES = 0.7). Both internal and external loads presented significant variation during the camp, with higher RPE and GPS parameters on the day of the friendly matches = day 4 and day 7 and lower load on days 5 and 6 (p < 0.05). The study provides a report on a positive neuromuscular status in the Czech football players during an international camp including a congested and competitive fixture, presenting an undulation on training loads across the training sessions, with higher loads on the match days. This study demonstrated that the periodization used by the Czech national football team in this specific congested fixture seems to not impair the neuromuscular status.

  • Targeting exercise intensity and aerobic training to improve outcomes in
           Parkinson’s disease

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Aerobic training is popular for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) given its potential to improve aerobic capacity, relieve symptoms, and to stabilise disease progression. Although current evidence supports some of the assertions surrounding this view, the effect of exercise intensity on PD is currently unclear. Reasons for this include inconsistent reporting of exercise intensity, training regimes based on general guidelines rather than individualised physiological markers, poor correspondence between intended exercise intensities and training zones, and lack of awareness of autonomic disturbance in PD and its impact on training regimes and outcome. We also consider the selective effect of exercise intensity on motor symptoms, function and disease progression. We review aerobic training protocols and recent guidelines for people with PD, highlighting their limitations. Considering this, we make suggestions for a more selective and discerning approach to aerobic training programming.

  • The effect of anti-inflammatory properties of sumac powder (Rhus coriaria
           L.) along with ferrous sulfate on blood markers and oxidative stress of
           young athletic girls with non-anemic iron deficiency (NAID)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of the simultaneous consumption of sumac powder (Rhus Coriaria L.) and ferrous sulfate for six weeks on hematologic indices such as ferritin, hemoglobin (Hb), hematocrit (HCT), and mean corpuscular volume (MCV), inflammation (high sensitivity C-reactive protein), oxidative stress (TAC and MDA) and some physical fitness factors in teenage volleyball players with depleted iron stores (serum ferritin less than 40 ng/ml). In a semi-experimental study, 30 girls aged 15–18 years with three to five years of background in volleyball who were at the special level of preparation with low iron stores were screened and randomly divided into three homogeneous groups (iron supplementation, iron supplementation + sumac powder, and placebo). Capsules containing ferrous sulfate with 50 mg of elemental iron, one gram of sumac powder, and one gram of rice flour (placebo) were consumed daily by the subjects until the end of the study. Compared to the other two groups, only the iron group showed a significant increase in ferritin concentration (P = 0.000), anaerobic power of the upper limb (P = 0.04), anaerobic power of the lower limb (P = 0.01), and agility (P = 0.00). None of the three groups showed any significant changes in Hb, Hct and Mcv (P = 0.57, P = 0.36, P = 0.33), hs-C reactive protein (P = 0.06), lactate (P = 0.89), VO2max (P = 0.75) and activity heart rate (P = 0.26). The results showed that sumac powder not only did not improve the effect of iron supplementation, but also had a negative effect on it.

  • The influence of the angiotensin-converting enzyme gene polymorphism and
           physical activity level on blood pressure and heart rate variability
           behavior

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study compared blood pressure (BP) and heart rate variability (HRV) values considering the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) polymorphisms and physical activity (PA) level. Participants were stratified according to their ACE polymorphism and PA level. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was used to detect polymorphisms and PA level was assessed by questionnaire. Participants had their BP measured by an oscillometer and the HRV rerded using a heart monitor. Participants grouped by polymorphism II showed higher values of root mean square successive difference when compared to individuals with DD polymorphism. “Highly active”, compared to “active”, individuals exhibited a lower diastolic BP. There was no statistically significant difference in the behavior of the dependent variables between the different PA levels within each polymorphism. Polymorphism II attenuated parasympathetic activity in cardiac autonomic modulation and the “highly active” group displayed lower values of diastolic BP.

  • Effects of 16-week Muay Thai practice on cardiovascular parameters in
           children and adolescents with overweight/obesity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Background Changes in cardiovascular health indicators during childhood and adolescence can lead to cardiovascular diseases in adulthood. Excess body fat is one of the main factors for cardiovascular diseases. Thus, new strategies for the practice of physical activity with this population are needed to prevent and/or reverse this situation. Aim To analyze the effects of 16 weeks of Muay Thai practice on heart rate variability, blood pressure, and resting heart rate in children and adolescents with overweight/obesity. Methods The sample is composed of 30 children and adolescents of both sexes (17 male and 13 female) aged 12.50 ± 2.12 years. The participants were divided into Muay Thai (n = 17) and control (n = 13). Systolic and diastolic blood pressure and heart rate were measured using an automatic oscillometric device. Heart rate variability was assessed by a frequency meter and was analyzed considering the time domain indices, frequency, and the Poincaré plot. The outcomes were evaluated before (initial time) and after 16 weeks. The Muay Thai group, performed an intervention with Muay Thai training for 16 weeks (three times a week on non-consecutive days). Each training session lasted 90 min and the intensity was maintained from moderate to high using the perceived exertion scale. Results The Muay Thai group demonstrated lower heart rate values than the control group at the pre-test (p = 0.040). In addition, the Muay Thai group decreased the heart rate in post-test when compared to the pre-test (p < 0.001). Conclusion 16 weeks of Muay Thai shows a tendency to reduce resting heart rate in children and adolescents with overweight/obesity.

  • Predictive performance models in marathon based on half-marathon, age
           group and pacing behavior

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Objective The main aim of this study was to develop an equation for predicting performance in 42.2 km (MRT) using pacing and packing behavior, age group and previous 21.1 km time as possible explanatory variables. Methods 1571 men and 251 female runners who took part in the Valencia Marathon and Half-Marathon were selected to display the regression models. Stepwise regression analysis showed as explanatory variables for MRT: pacing behavior, age group, and time in 21.1 km. Results The analysis showed four regression models to estimate accurately MRT based principally on athletes previous performance in half-marathon and pacing behavior for men (R2= 0.72–0.88; RMSE= 4:03–8:31 [min:s]). For women, it was suggested a multiple linear regression for estimating MRT (R2 0.95; RSE= 8:06 [min:s]) based on previous performance in half-marathon and pacing behavior. The subsequent concordance analysis showed no significant differences between four of the total regressions with real time in the marathon (p>0.05). Conclusion The present results suggest that even and negative pacing behavior and a better time in 21.1 km, in the previous weeks of the marathon, might accurately predict the MRT. At the same time, nomadic packing behavior was the one that reported the best performance. On the other hand, although the age group variable might partially explain the final performance, it should be included with caution in the final model because of differences in sample distribution, causing an overestimation or underestimation of the final time.

  • Mental fatigue impairs strength endurance performance in trained
           individuals

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose Evidence of mental fatigue (MF) effects on dynamic strength performance and psychological responses is scarce and controversial. Thus, we examined whether highly demand cognitive task-induced MF influenced dynamic strength endurance performance and psychological responses to exercise. Methods After familiarizations with standardized protocols and procedures, 12 strength-trained individuals (24 ± 6 years; 1.77 ± 0.04 m; 79.0 ± 14.7 kg) completed two experimental trials in a randomized, crossover counterbalanced fashion. In each trial, participants performed a 5-set dynamic strength endurance test at 70% of one-repetition maximum load in bench press exercise, interspersed by 2 min. Before the strength endurance test, participants either performed a 30 min cognitive task (i.e. MF trial) or sat quietly (i.e., control trial—CON) for equal time. The total number of repetitions and psychological responses such as motivation, emotional arousal, affect, and ratings of perceived exertion (RPE) were obtained throughout the exercise protocol. Results MF impaired the total number of repetitions (p = 0.042; ES = 0.17; − 4 ± 5 repetitions; − 5.9 ± 11.9%) compared to CON. However, comparable psychological responses were observed between MF and CON trials in motivation, emotional arousal, affect, and RPE (all comparisons, p > 0.05). Conclusions These results have important implications for exercise training and performance assessment in both athletic and clinical populations aiming at increases in muscle strength and hypertrophy in response to strength training.

  • Comparing the effect of in water vs. land vs. combined land–water
           training on functional mobility and balance in women with multiple
           sclerosis: a Burdenko method

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Background Reduction of motor abilities, mobility, and imbalance are daily issues in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. Aims The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of 8 weeks in water vs land vs combined water and land training on functional mobility and balance on the basis of the Burdenko method. Methods Thirty-one women with MS aged 30–50 years old, EDSS < 4.5 participated in this study. The Berg Balance Scale (BBS) and the TUG (timed up and go test) were recorded. Results Within-group comparisons showed a significant improvement in functional mobility and balance of subjects after all the land, water and combined water–land exercises. The between-group comparisons showed that three environment exercises had a different effect on functional mobility (power = 0.769, P = 0.009 and F = 5.582). There was a significant difference between the land and water exercise groups (P < 0.05). There was, however,no significant difference among the three types of exercise in the balance (power = 0.329, P = 0.294, and F = 1.283). Conclusion Both the in water and land exercise environment can have sufficient efficiency in improving balance and functional mobility. Given the availability of facilities and equipment, both training in the land and water can be used as appropriate rehabilitation processes of MS patients.

  • Additional high intensity intermittent training improves aerobic and
           anaerobic performance in elite karate athletes

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study aimed to examine whether a period of high intensity intermittent training (HIIT) training influences aerobic and anaerobic performance in elite Karate athletes. Sixteen elite karate athletes volunteered to participate in this study. The athletes were randomly and gender-specifically divided into high intensity intermittent training (HIIT) group performed three times/week in addition to normal training for 6 weeks, and a traditional training (TT) group completing regular karate training. Body composition and maximal oxygen consumption as well as muscle power, speed, agility, and anaerobic power variables were assessed before and after the intervention. In addition, the blood lactate levels were measured in rest, after a warm-up period, and immediately, 5, 30, and 60 min after a Wingate test. The level of significance set ρ ≤ 0.05 for the study. A significant difference was observed in VO2max between HIIT and TT groups in post-test (p = 0.006). Furthermore, a significant difference observed between the muscle power (p = 0.001), speed (p = 0.013), agility (p = 0.004), peak power (PP) (p = 0.002), average power (AP) (p = 0.004), VO2max (p = 0.002), and level of the blood lactate concentration 60 min after Wingate test (p = 0.001) in HIIT group from pre- to post-test. A time × group interaction in muscle power (p = 0.001), speed (p = 0.021), and VO2max (p = 0.005) was observed. HIIT positively influences aerobic and anaerobic power in elite karate athletes compared to TT.

  • Comparative investigation of hand and foot reaction ability between the
           basketball and handball players

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Background Reaction ability is the ability to react against a signal quickly and effectively. An auto-dynamic reflex movement is the quality of reaction ability. It plays a vital role in fast-moving games like basketball and handball to meet the high competition demands. Objective The study aimed to investigate the admissible standard of hand and foot reaction ability and analyze the significant relationship between basketball and handball players. Methods Thirty (30) basketball and handball players between 20 and 30 years of age who participated at least in state level and above tournaments from Manipur were randomly selected. Whole Body Reaction Type IV (Takei Kiki Kogyo Co. Ltd) was administered to collect the data for hand and foot reaction ability and recorded at 100 of a second. The descriptive analysis and independent ‘t' test were used to determine the significant differences in hand and foot reaction abilities between basketball and handball players. Results There were found the same mean, i.e., M = 0.25 ± 0.05, in hand reaction ability (HRA) between the basketball and handball players. For the foot reaction abilities (FRA), M = 0.29 ± 0.05 and M = 0.29 ± 0.08 were the means of basketball and handball players, respectively. No significant differences in hand and foot reaction abilities between basketball and handball players were found. The result of the ‘t’ test showed insignificant differences (p > 0.05) in hand (t = 0.286) and foot (t = 0.105) reaction ability at 0.05 level of confidence. The results revealed a similar standard of reaction ability between the basketball and handball players. Conclusion The basketball and handball games have a similar nature, intensive motor qualities and competition demands. Therefore, insignificant differences in hand and foot reaction abilities are found between the basketball and handball players. The two games have similar levels of competition demands.

  • Acute effects of different rest period durations after warm-up and dynamic
           stretching on endurance running performance in male runners

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose The purpose of the present study was to compare the acute effects of different rest period durations after general warm-up (GWU) and dynamic stretching (DS) on endurance running performance. Methods Eight male runners performed endurance running performance tests after three types of intervention. The interventions were as follows: (1) GWU + 5 min Rest, (2) GWU + DS + 5 min Rest, and (3) GWU + DS + 10 min Rest. The GWU consisted of running exercises on a treadmill at a velocity equivalent to 70% of maximum oxygen uptake (V̇O2max) for 15 min. The DS consisted of performing 10 repetitions as quickly as possible for the five muscle groups of the lower extremities. Endurance running performance was measured by time to exhaustion (TTE) during running on the treadmill at a velocity equivalent to 90% V̇O2max. Results TTE (884.5 ± 244.9 s) after GWU + DS + 10 min Rest intervention was significantly (p < 0.05) longer than that (719.8 ± 227.9 s) after GWU + 5 min Rest. TTE (734.5 ± 274.2 s) after GWU + DS + 5 min Rest intervention was not significantly different than that of the other two interventions. Conclusion The results demonstrated that the endurance running performance at the velocity equivalent to 90% V̇O2max was enhanced by GWU + DS + 10 min Rest, but not GWU + DS + 5 min Rest. We recommend that runners rest for approximately 10 min after GWU + DS to enhance endurance running performance.
