Ünlü, Hüseyin; Filiz, Bijen – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: Work ability of physical education teachers (PETs) is important to promote physical activity and effective teaching process. However, there was a limited study. In this study, work ability of the Turkish PETs was investigated. Method: The mixed methods were used. The study group consisted of 407 (M[subscript age] = 36.52 ± 6.9) PETs.…

Chia, Jingyi Shannon; Chow, Jia Yi; Barrett, Laura Ann; Burns, Stephen Francis – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: Badminton is a sport characterized by high-intensity activity interspersed with short rests requiring specific physiological fitness, skills and game tactics. This study aimed to develop, describe and establish the reliability of a novel badminton intermittent exercise protocol, to simulate singles match-play (Part A) and assess…

Sanz-Remacha, María; García-González, Luis; Sevil Serrano, Javier; Generelo Lanaspa, Eduardo; Aibar Solana, Alberto – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: Despite the well-known health benefits of physical activity (PA), disadvantaged populations usually have lower PA levels than the rest of the population. Some intra- and interpersonal factors such as different types of barriers to PA may influence PA levels, particularly among disadvantaged adult women. The first aim of this qualitative…

Leicht, Anthony S.; Fox, Jordan; Connor, Jonathan; Sargent, Charli; Sinclair, Wade; Stanton, Robert; Scanlan, Aaron – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Match activity demands of basketball players have been well reported but little exists in terms of quantifying the demands encountered by referees during match-play. Potential differences between referees and players may identify different fitness capacities and subsequent need for different training regimes. Purpose: The aims of this brief report…

Filanowski, Patrick M.; Iannotti, Ronald J.; Crouter, Scott E.; Vermeulen, Anne; Schmidt, Ellyn M.; Hoffman, Jessica A.; Castaneda-Sceppa, Carmen; Milliken, Laurie A. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine whether structured physical activity (PA) in a family-based community exercise program affects PA of young children and parents. Method: Twenty-two children (mean ± SD; age, 4.9 ± 2.1 years) and their parents (age, 34.3 ± 7.6 years) participated in unstructured PA sessions followed by either short-…

Charkamyani, Forouzan; Hosseinkhani, Azadeh; Neisani Samani, Leila; Khedmat, Leila – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The role of a structured program of exercise training on the low-risk pregnancy in Iranian women undergoing "in vitro" fertilization (IVF) based on the reduction of gestational diabetes was examined. Method: A comparative quasi-experimental clinical trial with 170 IVF-pregnant women in two intervention and control groups was…

Purpose: This study aims to analyze changes in Maximum Inspiratory Pressure (MIP), lung function, cardiorespiratory fitness, and blood pressure, in 10 healthy active elderly women, following 7 weeks of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) combined with a multicomponent training program (MCTP). The association among these health parameters, their…

Wright, Steven C.; Grenier, Michelle – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the job histories of physical education teacher education (PETE) graduates over a 15-year span. Method: A total of 118 graduates/participants completed a Qualtrics, open-ended survey. Face validity of the survey questions was established via a panel of experts and the survey was pilot-tested by PE…

Strohacker, Kelley; Zakrajsek, Rebecca A.; Schaltegger, Ethan T.; Springer, Cary M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Flexible nonlinear periodization (FNLP) was designed to optimize sport-specific resistance training by matching bout demand to pre-exercise mental and physical states ("readiness to train"). Before applying this participant-responsive framework to aerobic prescriptions for inactive adults, operational definitions of readiness are needed.…

Bremer, Emily; Cairney, John – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: This study examined the test-retest reliability and feasibility of select fitness assessments in 7-12 year old children on the autism spectrum. Method: Participants (N = 14; n = 1 female; Mage = 9.5 ± 1.7 years) completed 7 fitness assessments, administered in a random order, on two occasions--Bruce protocol; Modified 6-minute walk test…

Johnson, Jerraco L.; Rudisill, Mary E.; Hastie, Peter; Wadsworth, Danielle; Strunk, Kamden; Venezia, Alexandra; Sassi, Julia; Morris, Michael; Merritt, Monaye – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: Children who do not learn their fundamental motor skills (FMS) are more likely to be unskilled, sedentary adults. By consequence, it behooves those teaching physical education to put in place mechanisms that promote as well as motivate children to master their FMS. One approach to achieving this goal is through the adoption of mastery…

Tay, Zhong M.; Lin, Wei-Hsiu; Kee, Ying H.; Kong, Pui W. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: Trampoline parks are becoming popular in many countries, providing recreational facilities for children and adults. This study investigated the effects of trampoline training on knee muscles strength and balance in young adults. Methods: Twenty-six participants (14 males, 12 females) were randomized into trampoline training (TT) and…

Walton-Fisette, Jennifer L.; Richards, K. Andrew R.; Centeio, Erin E.; Pennington, Todd R.; Hopper, Tim – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Although there has been forward movement in identifying and addressing diverse learning needs, social justice education is not a significant part of the current standards for beginning teachers or K-12 students in the U.S. Throughout our standards-based history, social justice has been more of a hidden curriculum. To attain the 50 Million Strong…

Kahan, David; Lorenz, Kent Arnold – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: Given the unequal distribution of physical activity (PA) opportunities across middle schools, alternative options for promoting it should be explored. Faith-based schools are positioned to offer religious-themed PA interventions, yet few have been reported. We replicated previous research by investigating the effects of the Physical…

Purpose: To evaluate vascular function and its relationship to cardiorespiratory fitness in professional handball athletes. Method: We examined 30 male professional handball athletes (age 27 [plus or minus] 4 y) and 10 male sedentary controls (age 26[plus or minus] 5 y) at rest. The workup included exercise testing via ergometry. To assess…
