Muñoz-López, Alejandro; Nakamura, Fabio; Naranjo Orellana, Jose – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2021
Purpose: Heart rate variability (HRV) can be used to monitor changes in autonomic nervous system (ANS) function. Monitoring HRV via the natural log of the root-mean-square difference of successive normal RR intervals (lnRMSSD), a decrease was related to lower parasympathetic activity and a fatigued state, and an increase was related to higher…

da Silva, Edenilson Pinto, Jr.; Borges, Leandro; Bachi, André Luis Lacerda; Hirabara, Sandro Massao; Lambertucci, Rafael Herling – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2021
Purpose: This study aimed to evaluate whether supplementation with L-arginine alone or in combination with physical exercise training can modulate rats' lipid and inflammatory profiles after a single intense exercise session. Methods: Male Wistar rats were divided into four different groups: control (C), trained (T), supplemented with L-arginine…

Vasconcellos, Fabrício; Cunha, Felipe A.; Gonet, Deborah T.; Farinatti, Paulo T. V. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2021
Purpose: To evaluate whether a soccer program (RSP) might lower risk factors related to metabolic syndrome (MetS) in obese adolescents. Methods: A 12-week randomized controlled trial [RSP: n = 6 (2 girls), age = 13.9 ± 1.6 yr, body mass index = 30.5 ± 2.1 kg/m[superscript 2]; Control: n = 7 (2 girls); age = 14.7 ± 2.3 yr, body mass index: 30.8 ±…

Stoepker, Peter; Dauenhauer, Brian; Carson, Russell L.; Moore, Justin B. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2021
Purpose: The Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program (CSPAP) model has recently been adopted as a national framework for physical activity (PA) promotion in schools. As a result, there is a need to develop an instrument to help leaders of PA measure policies and practices across the five component areas of a CSPAP. To address this gap, our…

McNamara, Scott W. T.; Colombo-Dougovito, Andrew M.; Weiner, Brad; Ahrens, Christopher – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2021
Purpose: Educational research often provides insight into the potential best practices to use within the classroom setting. Yet, limited information is available on teachers' perspectives toward research in the field of adapted physical education (APE). The current study examined adapted physical educators' perceptions toward research. Method:…

Barkoukis, Vassilis; Chatzisarantis, Nikos; Hagger, Martin S. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2021
Purpose: We tested the effects of an autonomy-supportive intervention in physical education (PE) on high-school students' autonomous motivation in PE, and their autonomous motivation, intentions, and physical activity (PA) behavior in a leisure time guided by the trans-contextual model. Method: PE classes in two schools were assigned to receive…

Kovacikova, Zuzana; Zemková, Erika – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2021
Purpose: Simulated competition as a training tool has a relevant role in enhancement of exercise intensity, motivation and physical enjoyment. Including a competitive component into the agility training could represent another way to improve agility performance significantly more. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of agility training…
