Evaluation of four vertical jump tests: methodology, reliability, validity, and accuracy (postprint)
Vertical jump performance tests can give considerably different results, even when different methods are used to analyze a single jump trial. To evaluate and compare four different methods commonly used to measure vertical ...
Evaluation of Four Vertical Jump Tests: Methodology, Reliability, Validity, and Accuracy
Vertical jump performance tests can give considerably different results, even when different methods are used to analyze the same jump trial from the same subject. To evaluate and compare 4 different methods commonly ...
Refinando el tempo de la música para un efecto ergogénico durante el ejercicio de ciclismo estacionario
El efecto de la música durante el ejercicio ha sido estudiado desde muchas perspectivas, pero los resultados no han sido del todo claros, probablemente por la falta apropiada de control en la investigación. El propósito ...
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) ...
Effect of Ingested Fluid Composition on Exercise-related Transient Abdominal Pain
The present study investigated the effect of ingested fluid composition on the experience of exercise-related transient abdominal pain (ETAP). Forty subjects, susceptible to ETAP, completed 4 treadmill exercise trials: a ...
Thirst response to post-exercise fluid replacement needs and controlled drinking
A resposta da sede às necessidades de reposição de líquido e à Ingestão controlada depois do exercício
Perceived thirst (TP) was evaluated as a dependent variable: can it distinguish among several levels of acute dehydration, is it reliable, and how does it respond to the ingestion of a fixed water volume post exercise? In ...
Refining music tempo for an ergogenic effect on stationary cycling exercise
Refinando o tempo da música para um efeito efeito ergogênico no exercício do ciclismo ergomêtrico
The effect of music on exercise performance has been studied from many perspectives, but the results have not been as clear as expected, probably due to a lack of appropriate controls. The purpose of this study was to ...
No effect of carbohydrate feeding on 16 km cycling time trial performance
The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of CHO ingestion during high intensity exercise performance lasting approximately 25 min. Twelve endurance trained male cyclists (age 19–41 years; body mass 73.2 ± ...
Effects of fasting on endurance exercise
Early studies agree that fasting is detrimental to overall physical performance and to endurance performance in humans; however, a study in rats reporte an ergogenic effect where time to exhaustion was increased by a ...
Practical Applications of Science: a Critical Look at Music in Fitness
This paper presents information to be able to justify the use of music in fitness classes, and to choose some music attributes based on scientific evidence
