Snyder, Natalie; Cinelli, Michael – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Background: Balance control is an essential element of locomotion that enhances biomotor abilities and physical performance. Individuals with extensive soccer experience display superior static single leg balance control compared to athletes of other sports as well as non-athletes. However, during a match, players often encounter greater…

Timler, Amanda; McIntyre, Fleur; Bulsara, Caroline; Rose, Elizabeth; Hands, Beth – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Our identity develops with age, and many impacting factors will determine whether it is healthy or unhealthy. A particularly fragile phase of identity development occurs during adolescence when level of motor competence may be influential, yet is rarely considered. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine male and female adolescent's…

Orr, Krystn; Evans, M. Blair; Tamminen, Katherine A.; Arbour-Nicitopoulos, Kelly P. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: Recreational sport programs are a critical but overlooked pathway for enhancing social participation of emerging adults with disabilities. Specifically, the experiences of recreational sport program members are important for continued community engagement among emerging adults. To address this gap, this scoping review examined the…

Perez-Sousa, Miguel A.; Olivares, Pedro R.; Garcia-Hermoso, Antonio; Gusi, Narcis – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: The study aimed to test whether improvement in fitness components, mediates the changes in Health-related Quality of Life (HRQoL) after exercise intervention in overweight and obese children. Methods and design: 170 obese and overweight children (121 exercise group and 49 control group) participated in a public exercise program based on…

Cuenca-Martínez, Ferran; Suso-Martí, Luis; Sánchez-Martín, Daniel; Soria-Soria, Clara; Serrano-Santos, Juan; Paris-Alemany, Alba; La Touche, Roy; León-Hernández, Jose Vicente – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of motor imagery (MI) and action observation (AO) combined with a motor control exercises program for the lumbopelvic region. Method: Forty-five asymptomatic individuals were randomized into three groups: MI (n = 15), AO (n = 15) or control group (CG) (n = 15). The outcome measures included…

Tsuda, Emi; Goodway, Jacqueline D.; Famelia, Ruri; Brian, Ali – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: This study examined the extent to which fundamental motor skill competence (FMSC; locomotor and object control skill competence) and perceived physical competence (PPC) predicted physical activity levels and sedentary behaviors during free-play time at preschool. Method: A total of 72 children (girls n = 33, boys n = 39; M[subscript age]…

Bonney, Nathan; Berry, Jason; Ball, Kevin; Larkin, Paul – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: In Australian Football (AF), the ability to proficiently kick the ball is a critical skill and has been shown to be advantageous to a team's successful performance; however, a valid and reliable match referenced kicking assessment remains absent. Therefore, the aim of this study was to develop a valid and reliable AF kicking proficiency…

Ward, Brodie; Thornton, Ashleigh; Lay, Brendan; Chen, Nigel; Rosenberg, Michael – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: Fundamental movement skill (FMS) assessors in education environments rely upon real-time FMS assessment; however, the recognition of individual proficiency criteria during real-time process-oriented FMS assessment may be problematic. Few studies consider the accuracy of identifying individual proficiency criteria in process-oriented FMS…

Waddell, Morgan L.; Amazeen, Eric L. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: The current study investigated the effect of attention on heaviness perception and its physiological and kinematic contributions. Method: Participants lifted objects that varied in mass and volume while their muscle activity and movement were recorded. Participants were instructed to pay attention to their arm (internal) or the object…

Gómez-Moya, Rosinna; Diaz, Rosalinda; Vaca-Palomares, Israel; Fernandez-Ruiz, Juan – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: Developmental coordination disorder (DCD) is characterized by poor coordination and clumsiness in children. Subjects often show unsteady gait, frequent tripping, and difficulty holding objects. Here we evaluated the implicit and explicit motor learning capabilities of children with DCD. Method: We assessed a total of 80 children…

Guignard, Brice; Rouard, Annie; Chollet, Didier; Bonifazi, Marco; Dalla Vedova, Dario; Hart, John; Seifert, Ludovic – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: Motor outputs are governed by dynamics organized around stable states and spontaneous transitions: we seek to investigate the swimmers' motor behavior flexibility as a function of speed and aquatic environment manipulations. Method: Eight elite male swimmers partook an eight-level incremental test (4% increment from 76% to 104% of their…

Schedler, Simon; Brock, Katharina; Fleischhauer, Fabian; Kiss, Rainer; Muehlbauer, Thomas – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: In youth, cross-sectional studies reported age differences in balance performance that were in favor of adolescents. Thus, trainability of balance performance might be different in children compared to adolescents. The purpose of this study was therefore to compare the effects of balance training (BT) on balance performance between…

Kanthack, Thiago Ferreira Dias; Guillot, Aymeric; Clémençon, Michel; Debarnot, Ursula; Di Rienzo, Franck – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: The ability to perform motor imagery (MI) might be impaired by the physical fatigue elicited during training. Interestingly, there is also theoretical support for a more limited influence of fatigue in the existing literature. Method: We evaluated MI ability before and after two exercise protocols: (i) a continuous exercise of 20 min…

Bremer, Emily; Graham, Jeffrey D.; Bedard, Chloe; Rodriguez, Christine; Kriellaars, Dean; Cairney, John – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the convergent validity of the PLAYfun tool, a physical literacy-based measure of movement competence, by examining its association with objectively measured physical activity in a sample of children and youth. Method: Participants included 110 children between the ages of seven to 14 years…

Nordin, Andrew D.; Dufek, Janet S. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: Overuse injuries are common in sport, but complete understanding of injury risk factors remains incomplete. Although biomechanical studies frequently examine musculoskeletal injury mechanisms, human movement variability studies aim to better understand neuromotor functioning, with proposed connections between overuse injury mechanisms and…
