Duathlon performance unaltered by short-term changes in dietary fat and carbohydrates
Purpose: This study investigated the effects of short-term dietary changes on metabolism and duathlon performance. Methods: Eleven men underwent a high-fat (HF; >65% fat from energy) or a high-carbohydrate (CHO; HC) ...
Predictive Validity of the Body Adiposity Index in Costa Rican Students
Objective: To verify the validity of the body adiposity index (BAI) in a sample of Costa Rican students. Methods: Volunteers were 93 females (mean age 5 18.6 6 2.4 years) and 106 males (mean age 5 19.2 6 2.8 years). ...
Fitness and cognitive performance in urban Latin Americans
Our group recently conducted a randomized clinical trial in US dwelling older adults that indicated increasing cardiorespiratory fitness (measured by VO2 peak on treadmill) resulted in better visuospatial cognition ...
A Comparison of Nutritional Habits, Physical Function and Psychological Constructs between Urban and Rural Costa Rican Older Adults
Purpose: To compare nutritional habits, physical function and psychological constructs between Costa Rican older adults from urban and rural zones. Methods: Male and female older adults aged ≥ 65 yr. from urban (n = 185) ...
Impact of social support on cognitive vascular risk factors in latino older adults
Objective: Central Americans have a cardiovascular disease (CVD) health advantage, as they are half as likely to carry CVD as European Americans, despite having an equivalent degree of vascular risk factors (VRFs). We ...
C-20 Cardiorespiratory Fitness Predicts Processing Speed Performance in Urban Latin Americans
Objective There is evidence that cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) protects against age-related declines in processing speed (PS), but studies investigating older adults living in low and middle-income countries are lacking. ...

Effect of a ten-month moderate to vigorous physical activity program on VO2max and the percentage of body fat in overweight and obese children
Objetivo: Evaluar el efecto de un programa de actividad física con intensidad de moderada a vigorosa bajo el modelo CATCH sobre el porcentaje de grasa corporal y capacidad aeróbica en niños con sobrepeso u obesidad. Método: ...
Cinética de la inmunoglobulina-A salival (IgAs) en adultos jóvenes con capacidad aeróbica promedio o excelente antes y después de una prueba de esfuerzo máximo
Salivary immunoglobulin A (sIgA) kinetics in young adults with an average or excellent aerobic capacity before and after a cardiopulmonary graded exercise test
Background: Aim: To compare the concentration of secretory immunoglobulin-A (sIgA) in young adults with average or excellent aerobic capacity before and after a cardiopulmonary graded exercise test. Methods: Participants ...
Development of a VO2Peak prediction equation in elderly
Introduction. Aging decreases aerobic capacity as determined by direct maximal tests (Hassel et al. 2015). There are indirect methods to assess aerobic capacity such as the 6-min walking test (6MWT). Some equations to ...
Monitoring Workload and Performance Response to Taekwondo Training
This study compared the association between Foster’s and Banister’s TRIMP methods for quantifying internal training load and training stimuli responses. Methods: A group of twenty-two Taekwondo competitors were divided ...
