  • Métodos de estimación de la maduración biológica en deportistas en
           etapa de desarrollo y crecimiento: Revisión bibliográfica

    • Authors: Mario Albaladejo-Saura, Raquel Vaquero-Cristóbal, Francisco Esparza-Ros
      Abstract: Los indicadores relacionados con la maduración biológica han sido estudiados desde hace décadas. Los cambios que produce la maduración afectan de forma trascendental al rendimiento de los jóvenes deportistas. El objetivo de esta revisión bibliográfica fue analizar los métodos de estimación de la maduración biológica más empleados en ciencias del deporte. Se han identificado cuatro métodos principales que abordan indicadores de la maduración biológica distintos: los métodos radiográficos, que estiman la edad biológica a través del desarrollo óseo; métodos antropométricos, que estiman el ritmo de la maduración biológica a través de cambios en la velocidad de crecimiento y la proporcionalidad; métodos de maduración sexual, basados en la manifestación de los caracteres sexuales masculinos y femeninos; y métodos de maduración dental, que estiman la edad biológica a través del desarrollo dental. El “gold standard” para estimar el estado madurativo son los métodos basados en radiografía de la mano y muñeca, sin embargo, sus limitaciones hacen que su empleo en la valoración de deportistas jóvenes se encuentre condicionado. Una alternativa muy utilizada son las antropométricas, que aunque no están exentas de limitaciones, han mostrado tener suficiente fiabilidad y validez. La maduración sexual o dental parecen no ser tan aplicables en este ámbito.

  • Proceso de vuelta a la competición en lesiones de la región isquiosural
           en el futbolista: Una revisión sistemática

    • Authors: Antoni Pajuelo Molina, Esther Bazan Ordax, Toni Caparrós Pons
      Abstract: Las lesiones de la musculatura isquiosural engloban el 12% de las lesiones totales del futbolista, El objetivo de la presente revisión sistemática es exponer la metodología actual durante el proceso de rehabilitación en futbolistas respecto a la lesión de la región isquiosural. Para ello, se ha realizado una búsqueda mediante las plataformas Google Scholar, Pubmed y Sportdiscus incluyendo una franja temporal desde el 2011 hasta mayo de 2021. Los criterios de inclusión incluían jugadores de fútbol, además de incluir solo estudios con intervención. Se realizó un análisis de 7 estudios, en los que se ha podido observar cómo un enfoque multifactorial, actuando sobre componentes coadyuvantes y con el fin de mejorar el proceso de return to play ofrece mayor eficacia en la vuelta a la competición. Durante el proceso de rehabilitación es necesario identificar las sinergias en los patrones de movimiento específicos del deporte, con el fin de ofrecer al jugador una óptima recuperación.

  • Toma de decisiones, inteligencia contextual, consumo máximo de oxígeno y
           fuerza explosiva en deportistas de futsal durante el covid-19

    • Authors: Andres Felipe Villaquiran Hurtado, Diana Sofía Peña Tovar , Andrés Felipe Rodriguez Duque
      Abstract: La presente investigación buscó determinar la relación entre el consumo máximo de oxígeno, la fuerza explosiva, la toma de decisiones y la inteligencia contextual en deportistas de fútbol sala durante el aislamiento por Covid-19. Estudio descriptivo, realizado con 30 deportistas de futbol sala de la ciudad de Popayán durante el confinamiento por Covid-19, en donde se evaluó las características de entrenamiento, el índice de masa corporal, la capacidad aeróbica, la fuerza explosiva de miembros inferiores, la inteligencia contextual y la toma de decisiones. El promedio de VO2máx de los deportistas fue de 43,60 ml/kg/min, la media en la altura de salto fue de 38,22 cm; el tiempo de reacción promedio para la prueba de Stroop fue de 1,41 s. Además, se encontró relación estadística entre el VO2máx, la intuición para detectar las acciones de mi oponente (p= 0,016), la reacción rápida a los cambios en la competición (p= 0,012) y tomar la iniciativa (p= 0,017). Durante el aislamiento, los deportistas presentaron niveles de sobrepeso, tiempos de reacción lentos para la toma de decisiones, y valores bajos en Vo2 máx. y fuerza explosiva. El VO2 máx. está relacionado con una mejor respuesta cognitiva y toma de decisiones.

  • To Win or Not to Win: How to Success in the Asian Champions League

    • Authors: Hossein Abdolmaleki, Sholeh Khodadad Kashi, Majid Soleimani, Michal Varmus, Ahmad Mahmoudi
      Abstract: In professional sports, predicting success factors is very vital and important and is always questionable. The failure of teams in the leagues has been a constant issue and progress and gaining status has been a challenge for all clubs; and managers, officials, sports federations and clubs, and even researchers, are trying to shed light on the various dimensions of this issue. The purpose of this study was providing a model of predicting the success of football clubs in the Asian Champions League. The present study is descriptive-correlational. Seven Asian countries that won the Asian Champions League (ACL) were analyzed between 2014 and 2019. At the level of descriptive statistics, mean and standard deviation, and at the level of inferential statistics, because the response variable (success) was a qualitative variable, the logistic regression model was used. Data analysis was performed using SPSS software. Findings showed that 80% of the success of clubs in the ACL is correctly identified using the research model and foreign players, the average value of each player, the total value of the club and the number of players in a team have a positive impact on the success of football clubs. The age of the players has a negative effect, in other words, the lower average age can contribute to the success of football clubs. Therefore, these factors are considered as a comparative advantage for the success of clubs and managers and stakeholders are suggested to put the necessary planning and investment on their agenda to achieve these things.

  • Intra-rater and intraday test-retest reliability for physical performance
           tests in young Chilean tennis players

    • Authors: Pablo Luna-Villouta, Ivana Leao Ribeiro, César Faúndez-Casanova, Carol Flores-Rivera, Jaime Vásquez-Gómez, Rodrigo Vargas Vitoria
      Abstract: In tennis, the use of standardized tests seeks to provide a useful complement tool for performance monitoring, becoming a very valuable instrument for evaluating the athlete's physical condition. The aim of the study was to assess the intra-rater and intra-day test and retest reliability for physical performance in young Chilean tennis players. The sample size was of 86 young tennis players (15.4 ± 0.8 years old), male = 58; female = 28. Variables of physical performance were tested, 20 m. sprint test; modified agility test (MAT test); sit-and-reach test and shoulder flexibility; hand grip strength (HGS); horizontal jump (HJ), medicine ball throw (MBT), countermovement Jump (CMJ) and Abalakov (ABK). To examine the intra-rater and intra-day test-retest reliability, subjects performed the tests twice on the same day. Results showed excellent test-retest values of relative reliability (intraclass correlation coefficients; ICC between .80 - 1.00), respect to the absolute reliability, all the tests presented small values of standard error of measurements (SEM) and adequate values for the minimal detectable change (MDC). Physical performance tests used in this study reported high intra-rater and intraday test- retest reliability for all male and female individuals, except for agility in men, which shows moderate relative reliability.

  • Rendimiento académico, actividad física, sueño y género en
           universitarios durante la pandemia-2020

    • Authors: Natalia Bustamante-Ara, Javier Russell- Guzmán , Andrés Godoy-Cumillaf, Eugenio Merellano-Navarro, Natasha Uribe
      Abstract: Durante el periodo de confinamiento, la educación universitaria fue impartida bajo modalidad virtual, pudiendo repercutir en los estilos de vida saludable de los estudiantes. El objetivo fue evaluar la asociación entre rendimiento académico, actividad física y calidad de sueño, y determinar las diferencias existentes según género en estudiantes de Pedagogía en Educación Física durante la pandemia en el año 2020. Se realizó un diseño transversal multicéntrico, en 278 universitarios pertenecientes a las ciudades de Santiago, Talca y Temuco; Chile. Se aplicó una encuesta online desde julio a diciembre, incluyendo preguntas sobre actividad física (Cuestionario Internacional de Actividad Física, IPAQ), calidad del sueño (Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index) e información sociodemográfica. En los resultados, las mujeres presentaron mejor rendimiento académico, peor calidad del sueño, y similar actividad física-METs respecto a los hombres. Las mujeres (β = 0.26, IC 95% 0.10 a 0.43 puntos, p = .002), y aquellos universitarios que presentaron un peor indicador en la calidad subjetiva del sueño (β = 0.11, IC 95% 0.02 a 0.20 puntos; p = .014) obtuvieron mejor rendimiento académico en contexto por COVID-19. No existió asociación entre rendimiento académico y actividad Física. Es importante buscar estrategias que permitan un adecuado rendimiento académico, y también favorecer hábitos saludables en esta población.

  • Actividad física y el rendimiento académico en personas con Trisomía
           21. Una revisión narrativa

    • Authors: Marta Vega Díaz, Higinio González García
      Abstract: Los estudios que relacionan el rendimiento académico y la actividad física están en auge, aunque la mayoría de ellos no abarcan la dimensión discapacidad intelectual. El objetivo de esta revisión es conocer qué suscita la literatura con relación al Síndrome de Down, la actividad física y el rendimiento académico. Se efectuó una revisión narrativa consultando artículos localizados en las bases de Dialnet, Google Scholar, Redalyc, ResearchGate y Scielo. Los resultados demuestran que las funciones ejecutivas vitales para un alto rendimiento académico están alteradas en las personas con Trisomía 21 y que los ejercicios en donde se ponen en práctica las habilidades motrices gruesas logran potenciarlas. Como conclusiones, la actividad física disminuye el grado de inatención prestada ante estímulos irrelevantes y desarrolla la memoria en personas con síndrome de Down, pero no existen evidencias sólidas que demuestren su acción específica y positiva sobre las calificaciones escolares.

  • Perspectiva sobre la salud y los cuidados de la espalda en adolescentes
           practicantes de gimnasia rítmica y danza clásica: una investigación
           cualitativa de casos múltiples

    • Authors: Vicente Miñana-Signes, Manuel Monfort-Pañego, Enrique Ríos-Morales
      Abstract: El objetivo principal de este trabajo fue explorar las percepciones de estudiantes de secundaria y profesoras practicantes de actividades escénicas (gimnasia rítmica y danza clásica) sobre la salud y el cuidado de la espalda. Participaron tres adolescentes y una profesora de secundaria, las cuales respondieron de forma abierta a preguntas a través de una entrevista semiestructurada. Los resultados mostraron que las cuatro participantes tuvieron algún episodio de dolor de espalda y tres de ellas DLI a lo largo de sus vidas y su percepción sobre este es predominantemente negativo. Explicaron que la actividad practicada requería el desarrollo de ejercicios con continuas extensiones y rotaciones de tronco, así como buscar movimientos extremos, posturas viciosas y disarmónicas. Los entrenamientos requieren un alto nivel de exigencia y las horas de entrenamientos son muy elevadas. En conclusión, las participantes en actividades escénicas como la gimnasia rítmica competitiva y la danza clásica profesional perciben que requieren una alta dedicación, que dichas actividades a su vez requieren una extrema movilización de la columna vertebral que podría repercutir en problemas de la espalda. Y que por esas razones creen que se requiere a una persona profesional de la especialidad deportiva o danza para dirigir este tipo de actividades para evitar problemas de salud de la espalda.

  • Evaluation of anthropometric parameters in a national sample of Mexican
           older adults

    • Authors: María Araceli Ortiz Rodríguez, Ricardo López Solís, Antonio Rafael Villa Romero, María Fernanda Martínez Salazar, Luis Fernando Bautista Ortiz, Juan Felipe de Jesús Adame Alemán, Paola Kattyana Antunez Bautista
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to describe anthropometric parameters in a population of Mexican older adults (OA). 516 OA (277 women, 239 men) aged ≥ 65 years were interviewed. Anthropometry and a sociodemographic data questionnaire were performed. Means and standard deviations, prevalence (%) and confidence intervals are reported in the results. SPSS v20.0 was used in the statistical analysis. The combined prevalence of overweight and obesity in our population was 77%. The mean WHR values obtained were (0.97 in men and 0.89 in women). Finally, the percentage of fat in men was 30.6% and in women it was 39.8%. The results of this investigation showed significant differences between men and women in most of the anthropometric measures and nutrition indicators. The prevalence of overweight and obesity reported in the Mexican elderly population was higher than that reported in other studies, which shows an important public health problem in Mexican older adults. More studies are needed at the national level on nutritional parameters in the elderly in order to detect cardiovascular risk factors in a timely manner.

  • Effects of different strength training intensities on health-related
           parameters towards engaging in physical activity in elderly.

    • Authors: Raquel Carcelén, Jessica Nvarro, Alvaro Juesas, Rosa M. Baños, Juan C. Colado Sánchez, Juan Francisco Lisón
      Abstract: To assess the effects of a progressive resistance training program at different intensities on health-related quality of life, anxiety, and motivation towards engaging in physical activity among older people. Prospective, municipal multi-centers, non-randomized controlled trial. 76 older adults were assigned to: vigorous intensity (n = 19), vigorous-moderate intensity (n = 21), moderate intensity (n = 19), or control group (n = 17). The exercise groups performed six exercises with elastic bands per session, twice a week, for 8 months. Vigorous intensity, vigorous-moderate intensity and moderate intensity group performed 6, 10 and 15 repetitions, respectively. Health-related quality of life was assessed using the 36-Item Short Form Health Survey, trait and state anxiety using the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory, and motivation towards engaging in physical activity using the Behavioural Regulation in Exercise Questionnaire. The moderate intensity group showed a significant increase in the summary of the physical components of health-related quality of life (p = 0.001; ηp2 = 0.158) and a significant
      decrease in external regulation (p = 0.002; ηp 2 = 0.145) and amotivation (p = 0.013; ηp2 = 0.97). In contrast, the vigorous
      intensity group showed a significantincrease in state anxiety (p = 0.004; ηp2 = 0.076) and a significant decrease in introjected regulation (p = 0.018; ηp 2 = 0.097). Moderate intensity strength training programs are best suited for older adults because they improve health-related quality of life and decrease less self-determined forms of regulation, all without increasing anxiety states.

  • Decisional analysis of finishing in basketball

    • Authors: Jorge Serna, Verónica Muñoz Arroyave, Pere Lavega Burgués, Jaume March Llanes
      Abstract: The present study investigated the decision making linked to the basketball player's shooting and blocking shots based on the Strategic Logic proposed by the coach. A Spanish team which played in EBA League was studied in 4 games in the 2010-2011 season. 7440 motor decisions (ballhandler decisions and his defender) were analyzed using the ad hoc instrument called SODB. Among the most relevant conclusions it is worth mentioning: a) the importance of having a well-defined Coach's Strategic Logic in both offense and defense; b) the interest of assessing the match between the Coach's Strategic Logic and the players' individual decision making; c) a clear trend in the tight decision making of both the ballhandler (offensively) and the player who block shots (defensively) , confirming that the players respected the Coach's Strategic Logic; d) the main variable that helped predict the success of both the ballhandler and the rival of the ballhandler was the
      correct decision making of the players rather than the game system used; e) shooting and blocking shots in a correct way (following Coach's Strategic Logic) is related to success; and finally, f) the shot-block binomial is a relationship that depends more on the individual competence of the players involved than on the Coach's Strategic Logic.
