Islam, Hashim; Townsend, Logan K.; Hazell, Tom J. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: Few studies have directly compared excess postexercise oxygen consumption (EPOC) and fat utilization following different exercise intensities, and the effect of continuous exercise exceeding 75% of maximal oxygen uptake (VO[subscript 2]max) on these parameters remains unexplored. The current study examined EPOC and fat utilization…

Gourlan, Mathieu; Boiché, Julie; Takito, Monica; Fregeac, Bruno; Cousson-Gélie, Florence – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: The theory of planned behavior (TPB) has been criticized for not including interactions between the variables assumed to predict behavior. This study sought to test how TPB variables interact to predict physical activity (PA) in children. Method: Four hundred thirty-eight children (M[subscript age] = 8.6 years, SD = 1.6 years) completed a…

Grafe, Kerstin; Bendick, Phillip; Burr, Margaret; Boura, Judy; Franklin, Barry A. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of adjunctive resistance training (RT) in aerobically trained patients with coronary artery disease on systolic blood pressure (SBP), heart rate (HR), rating of perceived exertion (RPE; using the traditional 6-to-20 scale), and rate-pressure product (RPP) responses to lifting fixed…

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…

Marchant, David C.; Griffiths, Gillian; Partridge, Julie A.; Belsley, Leah; Porter, Jared M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: Research has demonstrated that verbal instructions directing attention externally (i.e., toward the effect of the movement) significantly enhance motor skill performance, and this effect is enhanced when the distance of the external focus relative to the body is increased. However, few studies have investigated this distance-of-focus…

Wright, Brian V.; Stager, Joel M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Adherence to prescribed training intensity (i.e., swim speed) has been conveyed as a key parameter regarding improvements in seasonal performance. Evidence has also suggested swimmers have difficulty complying with coach-prescribed training. How this compliance is affected by a coaching presence and oversight has yet to be examined. Purpose: The…

Pinto, Stephanie Santana; Alberton, Cristine Lima; Cadore, Eduardo Lusa; Kanitz, Ana Carolina; Delevatti, Rodrigo Sudatti; Pantoja, Patrícia Dias; Peyré-Tartaruga, Leonardo Alexandre; Reichert, Thaís; Bregagnol, Luciana Peruchena; Lisboa, Salime Donida Chedid; Kruel, Luiz Fernando Martins – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the acute effects of water-based aerobic exercises on the performance of water-based resistance exercises by assessing kinematic parameters during protocols and neuromuscular responses after them. Method: Ten women performed 2 water-based protocols (i.e., resistance and concurrent water-based…

Coolkens, Rosalie; Ward, Phillip; Seghers, Jan; Iserbyt, Peter – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: To investigate the effect of generalization of engagement in parkour from physical education (PE) to organized and supervised recess on voluntary participation and moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA). Method: Children received a 6-day parkour unit in PE and every two lessons they could voluntarily participate in 20-min parkour…

Brusseau, Timothy A.; Burns, Ryan D. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the predictive relationship among physical activity, health-related fitness, and on-task classroom behavior in children using a discriminant function analysis. Method: Participants were a convenience sample of children (N = 533; M[subscript age] = 8.8 ± 1.9 years) recruited from 77 1st- through…

Harada, Kazuhiro; Masumoto, Kouhei; Kondo, Narihiko – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: Although it has been proposed that 1 spouse's health behaviors might correlate with the other spouse's health behavior among married couples, few studies have focused on sedentary behavior. This study examined whether objectively measured sedentary behavior and physical activity are correlated with each other and whether attachment to…

Purpose: Mountain running races are becoming increasingly popular, although our understanding of the particular physiology associated with downhill running (DR) in trained athletes remains scarce. This study explored the cardiorespiratory responses to high-slope constant velocity uphill running (UR) and DR. Method: Eight endurance athletes…

Liu, Yuxin; Mao, Lida; Zhao, Yunan; Huang, Yufang – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: To create a high-stress shooting among the crowd (SAC) program and to examine its effectiveness in reducing SWAT trainees' stress level and their shooting performance in a simulated hostage-rescue situation. Method: After the SAC program was created, it was evaluated using a pretest and posttest experimental design: 98 young male SWAT…

Buskard, Andrew N. L.; Gregg, Heath R.; Ahn, Soyeon – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Guidelines for improving maximal concentric strength through resistance training (RT) have traditionally included large muscle-group exercises, full ranges of motion, and a load approximating 85% of the 1-repetition maximum (1RM). Supramaximal eccentric training (SME; controlled lowering of loads above the concentric 1RM) has also been shown to be…

Coratella, Giuseppe; Longo, Stefano; Cè, Emiliano; Limonta, Eloisa; Rampichini, Susanna; Bisconti, Angela Valentina; Schena, Federico; Esposito, Fabio – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: The present study aimed to investigate whether or not eccentric-only training induced different sex-related adaptations in vastus lateralis muscle architecture and knee extensors strength. Methods: Thirteen healthy women and 13 healthy men were recruited. Vastus lateralis pennation angle, fascicle length, and muscle thickness, as well as…
