Houltberg, Benjamin J.; Wang, Kenneth T.; Qi, Wei; Nelson, Christina S. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Further research is needed on factors related to the emotional health of elite athletes. Previous research has linked self-narratives of people or their narrative identities to their psychological well-being. However, no study has yet examined self-narratives among elite athletes. Purpose: This study examined whether specific profiles or narrative…

Dale, Julian; Glaister, Mark – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: This study investigated the existence of the oxygen uptake (VO[subscript 2]) overshoot and the effects of exercise intensity and fitness status on the response during moderate-intensity exercise. Methods: Twelve "high-fitness" (M[subscript age] = 26 ± 5 years; M[subscript height] = 184.1 ± 5.4 cm; M[subscript body mass] =…

Fortes, Leonardo S.; Nascimento-Júnior, José R. A.; Mortatti, Arnaldo L.; de Lima-Júnior, Dalton Roberto Alvas Araújo; Ferreira, Maria E. C. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
It seems that dehydration may impair decision-making performance in athletes. Purpose: This study aimed to investigate the influence of dehydration on passing decision-making performance in soccer players. Method: Participants were 40 male soccer players (M[subscript age] = 22.3 ± 2.3 years) who agreed to participate in the study and were randomly…

Erwin, Heather; Brusseau, Timothy A.; Carson, Russell; Hodge, Samuel; Kang, Minsoo – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
SHAPE America -- Society of Health and Physical Educators has targeted youth physical activity (PA) as 1 of its 4 goals within the 50 Million Strong[TM] campaign. Only 27.1% of youth met the target of all students (preK-12) participating in at least 60 min of PA that increases their heart rate enough to breathe hard at least some of the time for…

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…

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…

Armstrong, Neil – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2017
Peak oxygen uptake (VO[subscript 2]) is internationally recognized as the criterion measure of youth aerobic fitness, but despite pediatric data being available for almost 80 years, its measurement and interpretation in relation to growth, maturation, and health remain controversial. The trainability of youth aerobic fitness continues to be hotly…

Hüttermann, Stefanie; Memmert, Daniel – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2017
Purpose: Visual attention is essential in many areas ranging from everyday life situations to the workplace. Different circumstances such as driving in traffic or participating in sports require immediate adaptation to constantly changing situations and frequently the conscious perception of 2 objects or scenes at the same time. Method: The…
