Corres, Pablo; MartinezAguirre-Betolaza, Aitor; Fryer, Simon M.; Gorostegi-Anduaga, Ilargi; Arratibel-Imaz, Iñaki; Aispuru, G. Rodrigo; Maldonado-Martín, Sara – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: To determine whether improvements in cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF), blood pressure (BP) and body composition previously seen after a 16-week exercise intervention (POST) with hypocaloric diet are maintained following six months (6M) of unsupervised exercise time. Methods: Overweight/obese, physically inactive participants with primary…

Garcia-Tabar, Ibai; Rampinini, Ermanno; Gorostiaga, Esteban M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The association between an overlooked classical Lactate Threshold (LT), named "Minimum Lactate Equivalent" (LE[subscript min]), with Maximal Lactate Steady State (MLSS) has been recently described with good MLSS prediction results in endurance-trained runners. This study aimed to determine the applicability of LE[subscript min]…

Sanz-Remacha, María; García-González, Luis; Sevil Serrano, Javier; Generelo Lanaspa, Eduardo; Aibar Solana, Alberto – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: Despite the well-known health benefits of physical activity (PA), disadvantaged populations usually have lower PA levels than the rest of the population. Some intra- and interpersonal factors such as different types of barriers to PA may influence PA levels, particularly among disadvantaged adult women. The first aim of this qualitative…

Pérez-Ferreirós, Alexandra; Kalén, Anton; Gómez, Miguel-Ángel; Rey, Ezequiel – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
In basketball, game-related statistics are the most common measure of performance. However, the literature assessing their reliability is scarce. Purpose: Analyze the number of games required to obtain a good relative and absolute reliability of teams' game-related statistics. Method: A total of 884 games from the 2015-2016 to 2017-2018 seasons of…

Gil-Rey, Erreka; Maldonado-Martín, Sara; Gorostiaga, Esteban M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The aim of this study was to compare the widely used accelerometer activity cut-points derived from the absolute moderate intensity recommendation (3-6 METs), with relative intensity cut-points according to maximal cardiorespiratory fitness (46%-63% VO[subscript 2max]) and to individual lactate thresholds (LT1 and LT2) in postmenopausal…

Iturricastillo, Aitor; Granados, Cristina; Cámara, Jesús; Reina, Raúl; Castillo, Daniel; Barrenetxea, Itziar; Lozano, Lander; Yanci, Javier – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: The main purpose of the present study was to determine physiological responses in wheelchair basketball (WB) matches in relation to heart rate (HR), match load (ML), differentiated perceived exertion (dRPE), lactate concentrations (LA), and tympanic temperature (TEMP), while specifying the individual player's playing time during different…

Peña-González, Iván; Fernández-Fernández, Jaime; Moya-Ramón, Manuel; Cervelló, Eduardo – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: The talent identification and selection process in young male soccer players is mainly focused on anthropometrics and physical performance, but social factors are also considered in this process. The purpose of this study was to test the existence of the relative age effect and its possible influence on anthropometrics and physical…

Purpose: The aim of the present study was to determine which of the published anthropometric equations is the most appropriate to estimate body-fat percentage (BF%) in adolescent swimmers. Method: Eighty-eight swimmers (45 boys, 43 girls) participated in this study. Following the recommendations of the International Society of the Advancement of…

Sicilia, Álvaro; Sáenz-Alvarez, Piedad; González-Cutre, David; Ferriz, Roberto – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2016
Purpose: Based on self-determination theory, the purpose of this study was to analyze the relationship between social physique anxiety and intention to be physically active, while taking into account the mediating effects of the basic psychological needs and behavioral regulations in exercise. Method: Having obtained parents' prior consent, 390…

Aibar Solana, Alberto; Bois, Julien E.; Zaragoza, Javier; Bru, Noëlle; Paillard, Thierry; Generelo, Eduardo – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2015
Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine and compare the correlates of objective sedentary behavior (SB) and nonschool self-reported SB in adolescents from 2 midsized cities, 1 in France (Tarbes) and 1 in Spain (Huesca). Stability of objective SB and nonschool self-reported SB were also assessed at different time points during 1 academic…

Alcaraz, Saul; Torregrosa, Miquel; Viladrich, Carme – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2015
Purpose: The purpose of the present research was to test how behavioral regulations are mediated between basic psychological needs and psychological well-being and ill-being in a sample of team-sport coaches. Based on self-determination theory, we hypothesized a model where satisfaction and thwarting of the basic psychological needs predicted…

Lavega, Pere; Alonso, José I.; Etxebeste, Joseba; Lagardera, Francisco; March, Jaume – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2014
Purpose: The aims of this study were to analyze the intensity of emotions (positive, negative, or ambiguous) produced when players took part in traditional games with a different social structure and to examine the explanations given by those participants for these emotional experiences. Method: Participants (N = 556) were recruited from 4 Spanish…

Gutierrez-Davila, Marcos; Rojas, F. Javier; Antonio, Raquel; Navarro, Enrique – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2013
Purpose: The objective was to determine the way in which the level of uncertainty produced during the execution of a lunge attack with target change (two or four possible responses) affects reaction-response time parameters and kinematic factors involved in the technical coordination of the attack. Method: Seventeen fencers from the Spanish…

Busquets, Albert; Marina, Michel; Angulo-Barroso, Rosa – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2013
Purpose: Improvements in motor performance and coordination may be impacted by the interaction of practice and organismic constraints. It has been proposed that these aspects of motor learning are achieved at a different time rate: first, during placement of the events (performance), and second, segmental spatiotemporal relationships…
