Griffiths, Brad; Grant, James; Langdown, Louis; Gentil, Paulo; Fisher, James; Steele, James – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: Resistance training is often performed in a traditional training style using deliberate relatively longer repetition durations or in an explosive training style using maximal intended velocities and relatively shorter repetition durations. Both improve strength, "power" (impulsivity), and speed. This study compared explosive and…

de Lima, Luiz Rodrigo Augustemak; Silva, Diego Augusto Santos; do Nascimento Salvador, Paulo Cesar; Alves Junior, Carlos Alencar Souza; Martins, Priscila Custódio; de Castro, João Antônio Chula; Guglielmo, Luiz Guilherme Antonacci; Petroski, Edio Luiz – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: To examine the capacity of physiological variables and performance to predict peak oxygen consumption (peak VO[subscript 2]) in children and adolescents living with HIV. Method: Sixty-five children and adolescents living with HIV (30 boys) aged 8-15 years, participated in the study. Peak VO[subscript 2] was measured by breath-by-breath…

Fox, Jordan L.; Stanton, Robert; Scanlan, Aaron T. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to quantify and compare training and competition demands in basketball. Methods: Fifteen semiprofessional male basketball players wore microsensors during physical conditioning training (PCT), games-based training (GBT), and competition to measure absolute and relative (·min[superscript -1]) PlayerLoad™ (PL)…

Canabrava, Karina L. R.; Faria, Fernanda R.; de Lima, Jorge R. P.; Guedes, Dartagnan P.; Amorim, Paulo R. S. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: This study aimed to compare the energy expenditure and intensity of active video games to that of treadmill walking in children and adolescents. Method: Seventy-two boys and girls (aged 8-13 years) were recruited from local public schools. Energy expenditure and heart rate were measured during rest, during 3-km/hr, 4-km/hr, and 5-km/hr…

Ludyga, Sebastian; Gerber, Markus; Brand, Serge; Pühse, Uwe; Colledge, Flora – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: Acute benefits of aerobic exercise on executive functioning have been reported frequently under laboratory conditions. However, to date, a beneficial effect on long-term memory has been less well supported and no data are available regarding nonlaboratory conditions in young adults. The aim of the current study was to investigate acute…

Costa, Rochelle Rocha; Pilla, Carmen; Buttelli, Adriana Cristine Koch; Barreto, Michelle Flores; Vieiro, Priscila Azevedo; Alberton, Cristine Lima; Bracht, Cláudia Gomes; Kruel, Luiz Fernando Martins – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: This study aimed to investigate the effects of water-based aerobic training on the lipid profile and lipoprotein lipase (LPL) levels in premenopausal women with dyslipidemia. Method: Forty women were randomly assigned to: aquatic training (WA; n = 20) or a control group (CG; n = 20). The WA group underwent 12 weeks of water-based interval…

Lagestad, Pål; Mehus, Ingar – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Research from several countries has documented a decline in physical activity (PA) levels and in participation in organized sport with increasing age, indicating that organized sport may be of importance to adolescents' cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF). Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine how regular participation in organized and…

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…

Bellenger, Clint R.; Thomson, Rebecca L.; Davison, Kade; Robertson, Eileen Y.; Nelson, Maximillian J.; Karavirta, Laura; Buckley, Jonathan D. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: Correlations between fatigue-induced changes in exercise performance and maximal rate of heart rate (HR) increase (rHRI) may be affected by exercise intensity during assessment. This study evaluated the sensitivity of rHRI for tracking performance when assessed at varying exercise intensities. Method: Performance (time to complete a 5-km…

Loria, Tristan; de Grosbois, John; Tremblay, Luc – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2016
Purpose: At rest, the central nervous system combines and integrates multisensory cues to yield an optimal percept. When engaging in action, the relative weighing of sensory modalities has been shown to be altered. Because the timing of peak velocity is the critical moment in some goal-directed movements (e.g., overarm throwing), the current study…

Wang, Zhen – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2016
China is experiencing an air pollution crisis, which has already had a significantly negative impact on the health of the Chinese people. Although exercising is considered a useful means to prevent chronic diseases, it could actually lead to adverse effects due to extra exposure to polluted air when done outdoors. After a brief description of the…

Legrand, Fabien D.; Joly, Philippe M.; Bertucci, William M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2015
Purpose: Increased core (brain or body) temperature that accompanies exercise has been posited to play an influential role in affective responses to exercise. However, findings in support of this hypothesis have been equivocal, and most of the performed studies have been done in relation to anxiety. The aim of the present study was to investigate…

Antunes, Amanda H.; Alberton, Cristine L.; Finatto, Paula; Pinto, Stephanie S.; Cadore, Eduardo L.; Zaffari, Paula; Kruel, Luiz F. M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2015
Purpose: Maximal tests conducted on land are not suitable for the prescription of aquatic exercises, which makes it difficult to optimize the intensity of water aerobics classes. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the maximal and anaerobic threshold cardiorespiratory responses to 6 water aerobics exercises. Volunteers performed 3 of the…

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…
