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…

Jelicic, Mario; Ivancev, Vladimir; Cular, Dražen; Covic, Nedim; Stojanovic, Emilija; Scanlan, Aaron T.; Milanovic, Zoran – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the reliability, validity, and usefulness of 30--15 Intermittent Fitness Test (30-15[subscript IFT]) in female basketball players. Methods: Nineteen female basketball players (17.82 ± 1.94 yr, 175.4 ± 7.3 cm, 67.9 ± 7.7 kg) competing in the National Croatian League performed one trial of a…

Coratella, Giuseppe; Longo, Stefano; Rampichini, Susanna; Limonta, Eloisa; Shokohyar, Sheida; Bisconti, Angela Valentina; Cè, Emiliano; Esposito, Fabio – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: The current study investigated the role of quadriceps and gastrocnemii size and "vastus lateralis" and "gastrocnemius medialis" muscle architecture in peak-power and time-to-peak-power exerted in an all-out Wingate test. Twenty-one amateur cyclists were recruited. Methods: Quadriceps and gastrocnemii anatomical…

Sim, Min Kyu; Choi, Dong Gu – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: This study builds a stochastic model of a discrete-time Markov chain (DTMC) that fits well with a dataset of professional playing records. Methods: The point-by-point dataset of Men's single matches played in the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) tour from 2011 to 2015 is analyzed. A long-debated assumption on the…

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…

Kinoshita, Keita; MacIntosh, Eric; Sato, Shintaro – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: The purpose of the study is to examine how the combination of "what" (e.g., mastery- and performance-avoidance goals) and "why" (e.g., external regulation) are related to sport participant's goal attainment. To examine this phenomenon, we used achievement goal theory (AGT) and self-determination theory (SDT). Past…

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…

Bird, Jonathan M.; Karageorghis, Costas I. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: Despite considerable interest in the effects of music in an exercise context, there is a dearth of research examining the use of music-videos. This is surprising given the ubiquity of this medium in exercise facilities. The present study sought to examine the impact of a music-video channel on the social process of exercising in a public…

García-García, Oscar; Cuba-Dorado, Alba; Riveiro-Bozada, Alicia; Carballo-López, Javier; Álvarez-Yates, Tania; López-Chicharro, José – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine the changes in neuromuscular contractile properties in elite cyclists associated to the peripheral fatigue produced in a maximal incremental test in cycle ergometer. Methods: Forty-eight volunteers' well-trained male cyclists were evaluated during the competition season within a recovery microcycle.…

LaPlaca, David A.; Schempp, Paul G. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the skills, knowledge, and experiences differentiating expert and competent strength and conditioning (S&C) coaches. Method: The participants were 87 elite-level head S&C coaches with an average of over 18 years of coaching experience. These coaches were employed by teams from the MLB,…

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…

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a growing epidemic related with higher values of blood pressure (BP) and autonomic dysfunction. Scientific evidence has been indicating that functional resistance training (FRT) is superior over conventional (CRT) for muscle fatigue and pain, yet its effects on autonomic modulation (AM), BP and heart rate in MetS are…

Burke, Shaunna; Utley, Andrea; Belchamber, Caroline; McDowall, Louise – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: Physical activity (PA) is increasingly being used in hospice care as a rehabilitation strategy to help patients manage symptoms and improve quality of life. However, little is known about how to design and deliver interventions that promote uptake and maintenance of PA in this population. Single-level approaches (i.e., psychological…
