Athletic Performance: Carrying out of specific physical routines or procedures by one who is trained or skilled in physical activity. Performance is influenced by a combination of physiological, psychological, and socio-cultural factors.Caffeine: A methylxanthine naturally occurring in some beverages and also used as a pharmacological agent. Caffeine's most notable pharmacological effect is as a central nervous system stimulant, increasing alertness and producing agitation. It also relaxes SMOOTH MUSCLE, stimulates CARDIAC MUSCLE, stimulates DIURESIS, and appears to be useful in the treatment of some types of headache. Several cellular actions of caffeine have been observed, but it is not entirely clear how each contributes to its pharmacological profile. Among the most important are inhibition of cyclic nucleotide PHOSPHODIESTERASES, antagonism of ADENOSINE RECEPTORS, and modulation of intracellular calcium handling.Sports: Activities or games, usually involving physical effort or skill. Reasons for engagement in sports include pleasure, competition, and/or financial reward.Doping in Sports: Illegitimate use of substances for a desired effect in competitive sports. It includes humans and animals.Performance-Enhancing Substances: Agents that improve the ability to carry out activities such as athletics, mental endurance, work, and resistance to stress. The substances can include PRESCRIPTION DRUGS; DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS; phytochemicals; and ILLICIT DRUGS.Athletes: Individuals who have developed skills, physical stamina and strength or participants in SPORTS or other physical activities.Sports Medicine: The field of medicine concerned with physical fitness and the diagnosis and treatment of injuries sustained in exercise and sports activities.Flatfoot: A condition in which one or more of the arches of the foot have flattened out.Anabolic Agents: These compounds stimulate anabolism and inhibit catabolism. They stimulate the development of muscle mass, strength, and power.Physical Endurance: The time span between the beginning of physical activity by an individual and the termination because of exhaustion.Running: An activity in which the body is propelled by moving the legs rapidly. Running is performed at a moderate to rapid pace and should be differentiated from JOGGING, which is performed at a much slower pace.Ethanol: A clear, colorless liquid rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and distributed throughout the body. It has bactericidal activity and is used often as a topical disinfectant. It is widely used as a solvent and preservative in pharmaceutical preparations as well as serving as the primary ingredient in ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES.Alcohol Drinking: Behaviors associated with the ingesting of alcoholic beverages, including social drinking.Diet, Gluten-Free: A diet which is devoid of GLUTENS from WHEAT; BARLEY; RYE; and other wheat-related varieties. The diet is designed to reduce exposure to those proteins in gluten that trigger INFLAMMATION of the small intestinal mucosa in patients with CELIAC DISEASE.Glutens: Prolamins in the endosperm of SEEDS from the Triticeae tribe which includes species of WHEAT; BARLEY; and RYE.Celiac Disease: A malabsorption syndrome that is precipitated by the ingestion of foods containing GLUTEN, such as wheat, rye, and barley.

Hazardous drinking in New Zealand sportspeople: level of sporting participation and drinking motives. (1/240)

AIMS: To examine the relationship between athlete drinking motives and hazardous drinking across differing levels of sporting participation (club vs elite-provincial vs elite-international). METHODS: Data from 1214 New Zealand sportspeople was collected. We assessed hazardous drinking with the WHO's AUDIT questionnaire and sportspeople's psychosocial reasons for drinking with the ADS. Level of sporting participation (club/social, provincial/state, or international/olympic level) was also assessed. RESULTS: Hazardous drinking behaviours differed across levels of sporting participation, with elite-provincial sportspeople showing the highest level of hazardous drinking, club/social sportspeople the next highest and elite-international sportspeople the lowest. Sportspeople who placed a greater emphasis on drinking as a reward for participating in their sports tended to display more hazardous drinking behaviours, but other ADS motives differed over level of sporting participation. Elite-provincial sportspeople and elite-international sportspeople placed more emphasis on drinking as a way to cope with the stresses of participating in their sports. A relationship between team/group motives and AUDIT scores was fully mediated by positive reinforcement motives, and partially mediated by stress-related coping motives. CONCLUSIONS: These findings have implications for alcohol education programs targeted at sportspeople and sport administration, and may help improve the efficacy and focus of intervention programs.  (+info)

Reference intervals for serum creatine kinase in athletes. (2/240)

BACKGROUND: The serum concentration of creatine kinase (CK) is used widely as an index of skeletal muscle fibre damage in sport and exercise. Since athletes have higher CK values than non-athletes, comparing the values of athletes to the normal values established in non-athletes is pointless. The purpose of this study was to introduce reference intervals for CK in athletes. METHOD: CK was assayed in serum samples from 483 male athletes and 245 female athletes, aged 7-44. Samples had been obtained throughout the training and competition period. For comparison, CK was also assayed in a smaller number of non-athletes. Reference intervals (2.5th to 97.5th percentile) were calculated by the non-parametric method. RESULTS: The reference intervals were 82-1083 U/L (37 degrees C) in male and 47-513 U/L in female athletes. The upper reference limits were twice the limits reported for moderately active non-athletes in the literature or calculated in the non-athletes in this study. The upper limits were up to six times higher than the limits reported for inactive individuals in the literature. When reference intervals were calculated specifically in male football (soccer) players and swimmers, a threefold difference in the upper reference limit was found (1492 vs 523 U/L, respectively), probably resulting from the different training and competition demands of the two sports. CONCLUSION: Sport training and competition have profound effects on the reference intervals for serum CK. Introducing sport-specific reference intervals may help to avoid misinterpretation of high values and to optimise training.  (+info)

Physical performance changes after unsupervised training during the autumn/spring semester break in competitive tennis players. (3/240)

BACKGROUND: All competitive tennis players take time away from coaches throughout the year; however, little information is available as to the short-term physiological effect of these breaks. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the impact of a 5 week off-campus structured, yet unsupervised, break from regular training in top collegiate tennis players. METHODS: A nationally ranked collegiate NCAA Division I male tennis team (n = 8) performed a test battery in December and again in January after a 5 week period of recommended, yet unsupervised, training. The tests performed were 5, 10 and 20 m sprints, spider agility test, medicine ball power throws, standing long jump, Wingate anaerobic power test, VO2max, push-up and sit-up test, grip strength and range of motion (ROM) measures (goniometer) of the shoulder, hip, hamstring and quadriceps. RESULTS: Paired t tests (p<0.05) showed significant decreases in mean (SEM) Wingate power measurements in Watts/kg (pre: 8.35 (0.19) w/kg ; post: 7.80 (0.24) w/kg ), minimum Wingate power (pre: 5.89 (0.27) w/kg; post: 5.10 (0.38) w/kg) and VO2max values (pre: 53.90 (1.11) ml/kg/min; post: 47.86 (1.54) ml/kg/min). A significant increase was seen in the athlete's fatigue index (pre: 44.26 (2.85)%; post: 51.41 (3.53)%), fastest 5 m (pre: 1.07 (0.03) s; post: 1.12 (0.02) s), 10 m (pre: 1.79 (0.03) s; post: 1.84 (0.04) s) and 20 m (pre: 3.07 (0.05) s; post: 3.13 (0.05) s) sprint times. No significant differences were seen for the other variables tested. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that a 5 week interruption of normal training can result in significant reductions in speed, power and aerobic capacity in competitive tennis players, likely owing to poor compliance with the prescribed training regimen. Therefore, coaches and trainers might benefit from techniques (eg, pre- and post-testing) requiring athletes' to have accountability for unsupervised workouts.  (+info)

Preparticipation medical evaluation in professional sport in the UK: theory or practice? (4/240)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the level of pre-employment, pre-season, and post-injury medical evaluation of players undertaken within UK professional team sports. DESIGN: A postal, whole population survey. SETTING: Elite professional sports teams in England. POPULATION: Six groups comprising the following clubs: professional football (Premiership, 15 of 20; Championship, 22 of 24), rugby union (Premiership, 9 of 12; Division 1, 11 of 14), rugby league (Super League, 6 of 11) and cricket (County, 12 of 18). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Number (percentage) of clubs recording players' medical history and undertaking medical examinations of players' cardiovascular, respiratory, neurological, and musculoskeletal systems at pre-employment, pre-season and post-injury. RESULTS: The overall response to the survey was 74%, with a range from 55% to 92% among groups. Almost 90% of football (Premiership and Championship) and rugby union (Premiership) clubs took a pre-employment history of players' general health, cardiovascular, respiratory, neurological, and musculoskeletal systems, but fewer than 50% of cricket and rugby union (Division 1) clubs recorded a history. The majority of football (Premiership and Championship) and rugby union (Premiership) clubs implemented both cardiovascular and musculoskeletal examinations of players before employment. Fewer than 25% of clubs in any of the groups implemented neurological examinations of players at pre-employment, although 100% of rugby union (Premiership) and rugby league clubs implemented neurological testing during pre-season. CONCLUSIONS: None of the sports implemented best practice guidelines for the preparticipation evaluation of players at all stages of their employment. Departures from best practice guidelines and differences in practices between clubs within the same sport leave club physicians vulnerable if their players sustain injuries or ill health conditions that could have been identified and avoided through the implementation of a preparticipation examination.  (+info)

Motivation in tennis. (5/240)

Motivation underpins successful tennis performance, representing one of the game's foremost psychological skills. This paper elaborates on its role in tennis play, and takes an overview of the current state of motivation research applied to tennis. First, the importance of motivation in player and coach performance is explored. The body of evidence pertaining to players' motives for participation and the relevance of goal achievement motivation in tennis is then examined. Finally, the efficacy of motivational climates created by significant others is discussed in light of current practice.  (+info)

The Olympic brain. Does corticospinal plasticity play a role in acquisition of skills required for high-performance sports? (6/240)

Non-invasive electrophysiological and imaging techniques have recently made investigation of the intact behaving human brain possible. One of the most intriguing new research areas that have developed through these new technical advances is an improved understanding of the plastic adaptive changes in neuronal circuitries underlying improved performance in relation to skill training. Expansion of the cortical representation or modulation of corticomotor excitability of specific muscles engaged in task performance is required for the acquisition of the skill. These changes at cortical level appear to be paralleled by changes in transmission in spinal neuronal circuitries, which regulate the contribution of sensory feedback mechanisms to the execution of the task. Such adaptive changes also appear to be essential for the consolidation of a memory of performance of motor tasks and thus for the lasting ability of performing highly skilled movements such as those required for Olympic sports.  (+info)

Endurance exercise performance in Masters athletes: age-associated changes and underlying physiological mechanisms. (7/240)

Older ('Masters') athletes strive to maintain or even improve upon the performance they achieved at younger ages, but declines in athletic performance are inevitable with ageing. In this review, we describe changes in peak endurance exercise performance with advancing age as well as physiological factors responsible for those changes. Peak endurance performance is maintained until approximately 35 years of age, followed by modest decreases until 50-60 years of age, with progressively steeper declines thereafter. Among the three main physiological determinants of endurance exercise performance (i.e. maximal oxygen consumption , lactate threshold and exercise economy), a progressive reduction in appears to be the primary mechanism associated with declines in endurance performance with age. A reduction in lactate threshold, i.e. the exercise intensity at which blood lactate concentration increases significantly above baseline, also contributes to the reduction in endurance performance with ageing, although this may be secondary to decreases in . In contrast, exercise economy (i.e. metabolic cost of sustained submaximal exercise) does not change with age in endurance-trained adults. Decreases in maximal stroke volume, heart rate and arterio-venous O(2) difference all appear to contribute to the age-related reductions in in endurance-trained athletes. Declines in endurance exercise performance and its physiological determinants with ageing appear to be mediated in large part by a reduction in the intensity (velocity) and volume of the exercise that can be performed during training sessions. Given their impressive peak performance capability and physiological function capacity, Masters athletes remain a fascinating model of 'exceptionally successful ageing' and therefore are highly deserving of our continued scientific attention as physiologists.  (+info)

The cardiovascular challenge of exercising in the heat. (8/240)

Exercise in the heat can pose a severe challenge to human cardiovascular control, and thus the provision of oxygen to exercising muscles and vital organs, because of enhanced thermoregulatory demand for skin blood flow coupled with dehydration and hyperthermia. Cardiovascular strain, typified by reductions in cardiac output, skin and locomotor muscle blood flow and systemic and muscle oxygen delivery accompanies marked dehydration and hyperthermia during prolonged and intense exercise characteristic of many summer Olympic events. This review focuses on how the cardiovascular system is regulated when exercising in the heat and how restrictions in locomotor skeletal muscle and/or skin perfusion might limit athletic performance in hot environments.  (+info)

According to the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English, "performance" refers to "how well or badly a person, company etc. does a particular job or activity" and "high performance" describes "cars, computers etc. that are able to go faster, do more work etc. than normal ones". In the 100-m dash Usain Bolt is indubitably the fastest person in history and Javier Sotomayor, the world record holder in the high jump, has exhibited the highest level of performance in this event. In these contests, the index of sports performance is unitary; it is simply the time or the jumping/throwing distance.

You will need to be aware that some foods will cost your body too much so aren t worth eating. LifeWave Energy Patches have been used by professional athletes since they hit the market in the early 2000 s. Athletes soon discovered that they needed less recovery time between events and general stamina and strength increased. They were first tested on five of the women of a noted college swim team whose coach was the women s Olympic swim coach. He chose to start with a few women who were talented but underachieving. They all set personal bests along with a couple of world records within a couple of weeks. They were having so much success that the
Despite numerous attempts to discover genetic variants associated with elite athletic performance, injury predisposition, and elite/world-class athletic status, there has been limited progress to date. Past reliance on candidate gene studies predominantly focusing on genotyping a limited number of single nucleotide polymorphisms or the insertion/deletion variants in small, often heterogeneous cohorts (i.e., made up of athletes of quite different sport specialties) have not generated the kind of results that could offer solid opportunities to bridge the gap between basic research in exercise sciences and deliverables in biomedicine. A retrospective view of genetic association studies with complex disease traits indicates that transition to hypothesis-free genome-wide approaches will be more fruitful. In studies of complex disease, it is well recognized that the magnitude of genetic association is often smaller than initially anticipated, and, as such, large sample sizes are required to identify ...

Exercise induced muscle damage (EIMD) is a well-investigated area, however there is a paucity of data surrounding the damage response in females. The aim of this study was to examine the damage responses from a sport-specific bout of repeated sprints in female athletes. Eleven well-trained females (mean ± SD; age 22 ± 3 y, height 166.6 ± 5.7 cm, mass 62.7 ± 4.5 kg) in the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle completed a repeated sprint protocol designed to induce EIMD (15 × 30 m sprints). Creatine kinase (CK), countermovement jump height (CMJ), knee extensor maximum voluntary contraction force (MVIC), muscle soreness (DOMS), 30 m sprint time and limb girth were recorded pre, post, 24 h, 48 h and 72 h post exercise. CK was elevated at 24, 48 and 72 h (p , 0.05), peaking at 24 h (+418%) and returning towards baseline at 72 h. CMJ height was reduced immediately post, 24 and 48 h (p , 0.05). Sprint performance was also negatively affected immediately post, 24 h, 48 h and 72 h post exercise. ...
There are many potential benefits for athletes who undergo one of these sport performance enhancement techniques. For example, professional athletes may be able to perform better and therefore secure a larger salary, be traded to a better team or gain more exposure. For amateur athletes, better performance can help them get noticed by scouts, get better scholarships for college athletics or get picked up by better teams. In addition, these athletes may be able to recover from their injuries faster, which helps them lose less playing time after an injury occurs.. However, there are still many risks associated with these types of extreme enhancement therapies. First, some techniques have not been thoroughly researched yet, leaving long-term effects unknown. Additionally, some practices could lead to other health problems; with Tommy John surgery, for example, a patient increases their risk of infection by undergoing surgery. Finally, there is no guarantee that these therapies will work, so it ...

The athletes ability to sprint at high velocities is an integral component in the related fields of Sports Rehabilitation and the Performance Enhancement Training of athletes. A principal objective of the rehabilitation process is to restore the athlete to their previous level of athletic performance including the athletes pre-injury running velocity. With regard to the athletes performance enhancement training, a necessary component of training, when appropriate, would be to enhance the athletes abilities in linear velocity. The review of the various rehabilitation and/or performance enhancement training programs often leads to the inquiry, as well as reveals the lack of an appropriate programmed sprinting volume as often the majority of the running volume prescription is "tempo" in nature. The Rehabilitation and Strength and Conditioning (S&C) Professional must ensure that the athlete incorporates an appropriate and proficient amount of sprinting volume into their rehabilitation and ...
Natural News) If youve been training for marathon after marathon only to find that you struggle to keep up with the rest of the pack, it could be that you lack a certain gut bacteria that is giving the winners an edge.. High-profile athletes across a wide range of disciplines, from Usain Bolt to Roger Federer to Michael Jordan, seem to have that special something that goes far beyond natural skill and training. What if you could bottle up some of that magic for yourself? It could soon be a possibility thanks to Harvard University researchers.. The researchers at the Harvard Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering set out to identify the bacteria in our bodies that support athletic performance by collecting daily fecal samples from 20 athletes who were training for the Boston marathon in 2015. They followed the athletes longitudinally in the weeks before and after the race to see how their microbiomes changed between their performance and the subsequent recovery.. After sequencing ...
Subscribe: Android , RSS. Dr. Tommy Wood discusses with Dr. Ben Weitz how to improve athletic performance through the proper use of nutrition. I asked when you see a professional cyclist or runner, what is the first thing that you will do. Tommy explained that the first thing they will do is have the patient take their subjective questionaire and this can get an idea if the athlete has any particular issues with their health, such as with their gut. Then they will do a thorough consultation with the client and then they will have the client get some blood, urine, and stool testing, since many of the clients that come to see them have digestive issues. This may be because high intensity and endurance exercise may be very taxing on the gut. Or you may have been overtraining, under sleeping, under eating, etc. and may have made yourself susceptible to whatever came along to populate your gut. Then he and the other coaches at Nourish, Balance, Thrive will intervene with dietary recommendations, ...

The modification of the human gut microbiotas composition and function is one of the plausible mechanisms that has just recently started being explored in relation to how exercise affects health. Although gut microbiome composition tends to show higher variability under environmental pressures, its diversity functionality tends to remain consistent within and across subjects. In professional athletes, however, little is known about how microbial metabolism is related to performance.. A new study, led by Dr. Aleksandar D. Kostic from Harvard Medical School (USA), and whose lead author is Jonathan Scheiman-one of the founders of the start-up Fitbiomics, which is looking to find new probiotic candidates for promoting wellness-provides the first example of evidence that the metabolism of lactate to propionate may enhance athletic performance in mice.. Initially, researchers compared bacterial strains present in stool samples from two independent cohorts-15 runners and 87 ultramarathoners and ...

Introduction. Explain the role of Motivation in enhancing a sports performance. Motivation is crucial to success in every sports event whether it be football, hockey or tennis. When not motivated a player is liable to make more mistakes and not perform at their best. A motivated player will overcome a demotivated performer almost every time. Motivation can be sparked by a number of different things including receiving encouragement, or even being insulted or put down. If an elite performer receives bad press over a particularly bad game, he or she may feel motivated to try and prove to everybody and themselves that they are capable of performing well. Sometimes a desire to win can be enough motivation to increase an athletes performance. When I have entered the last round of the javelin knowing that I am lying out of the medal placing and in need of a big throw, the sense of impending doom has sometimes been enough to stimulate adrenaline to a level that has produced a performance better then ...

Sports Performance and Vision Disorders. Our visual skills play a vital role in our ability to play sports. Many of our patients find that their sports performance improves, even though they came to us for help with their difficulty with reading. The same types of vision disorders which can make reading and learning difficult can often interfere with sports performance.. For example, we have seen children who do well with T-ball, but have a hard time to baseball because the size of the ball is significantly smaller and harder for them to see. Once their vision problem is corrected, baseball becomes much easier.. Vision problems that impact sports performance can occur in children and/or adults.

Although mindfulness training for athletes is an area of increasing interest, few studies have focused on the qualitative experiences of athletes in such programs. Before beginning six sessions of mindful sport performance enhancement (MSPE) training, 45 mixed-sport collegiate athletes reported what they hoped and expected to get from the training, and responded afterward to open-ended questions about their experiences. Participants responses were coded for themes, with high interrater reliability. Athletes initially hoped to gain psychological benefits in both sport and everyday life, such as relaxation and less stress or anxiety, better emotion regulation, mental toughness, and self-awareness, as well as sport performance improvement. Overall, they found MSPE to be a positive experience and reported many of the same benefits that they expected. Participants also provided constructive feedback and recommendations for future MSPE training. Finally, there was evidence to suggest that athletes ...
A few clinical trials have tested bee pollens ability to increase energy or improve memory.. Sports Performance. According to a 1977 article in the New York Times, two studies on the use of bee pollen to improve sports performance found it to be of no significant benefit.4 Unfortunately, it has not been possible to obtain copies of the actual studies on which this article was based. Both trials were said to be double-blind and placebo-controlled. The first, performed in 1975, involved 30 members of a university swim team. Participants were divided into 3 groups and given a daily dose of either 10 tablets of bee pollen, 10 placebo tablets, or 5 bee pollen and 5 placebo tablets. In 1976, the same experimental protocol was used, but this time with 60 participants: 30 swimmers, and 30 long-distance runners. Bee pollen did not significantly improve performance in either trial. A third study on bee pollens effects on sports performance, also difficult to obtain, reportedly found that breathing, ...

brainmeasures.com: Sports nutrition certified experts needed in sports industry. Athletic performance is greatly related to nutrition. Sports nutrition deals with study and practise of nutrition in relation to athletic performance. This branch of study deals with studying and providing nutrition requirements to an athletic based upon his body and athletic requirements. This is regarded as a specialized branch of study because an athlete performance depends upon the nutrition and food intake. This branch or field of study describes and studies the nutrition requirements of the athlete thereby giving the athlete the nutrition requirements which he should full fill so that he and his body stays in great form.. We all know about the craziness which a sports star has in this 20th generation. Sports nutrition is very important because it decides the fitness level of the sports star. Sports nutrition is considered in endurance (cycling, running, etc) and strength sports (weight lifting and body ...
Hydration tips. It is important to practice adequate hydration because dehydration can lead to physical and mental deficits in competition and in practice. As much as 1-2 percent loss of body weight can have a significant negative impact on athletic performance, therefore, it is important to avoid losing water weight so the athlete will not have to play "catch up" later to return to a hydrated status.. The key to avoiding dehydration is to drink approximately 14-20 oz. of fluid before playing or practicing an activity. This pre-performance hydration routine should begin two hours prior to the start of a competition or practice. In the course of the first hour, an athlete should drink the 14-20 oz. of sports drink, fruit juices or water. However, in the course of the second hour, fluid consumption should cease. If extra liquids are consumed in the hour immediately prior to the competition or practice, the kidneys will be over stimulated, causing an increase in urine production. This process ...

CoQ10 is a fat soluble substance that is an integral part of the provision of energy through aerobic metabolism. It is produced in our livers and also acts as an anti-oxidant protecting our membranes from damage by free radicals. Supplementing Q10 is supposed to improve the health of people with cardiovascular diseases, counter the effects of ageing, improve gum health and improve endurance. There is good evidence that Q10 can help those with cardiovascular diseases and that it can help improve oral health. Evidence for its effects on athletes is equivocal, but this may be due to the age of study subjects and the type of supplementation that has been used.. There is some evidence that CoQ10 can help improve time to exhaustion in graded exercise tests. These improvements have been seen in young subjects (mean age 26), but are likely to be more impressive with older athletes, who will have less CoQ10 in their muscle and heart tissues. The effects of CoQ10 supplementaton on athletic performance ...
Glute training is a special interest of women who want to firm their glutes and of athletes who want to train these muscles to improve athletic performance. Lets take a closer look, starting with distinguishing between performance and appearance.. As for athletic performance, when it comes to glutes, what you see is not necessarily what you get. The glutes are a bit like the calves in that the size of the muscle group does not necessarily reflect its strength. A bodybuilder would want a low muscle attachment so that the bulk of the muscle would be in the center of the calf to give the illusion of greater size, but for athletes a high attachment would provide better leverage for running and jumping. Likewise, its possible that athletes who can perform tremendous deadlifts and vertical jumps may not have significant gluteal development.. For those interested in aesthetics, specifically women, here are 10 tips to improve your approach to glute training.. 1. Lose body fat. For most individuals, ...

A study from The Journal of Physiology suggests that competitive athletes should not take large doses of antioxidant supplements such as vitamins C and E. Taking 1000 mg vitamin C and 235 mg vitamin E daily prevented male and female exercisers from gaining the improvements in fitness and endurance that would normally occur after an 11-week intense running program (The Journal of Physiology, February 3, 2014).
The common pattern of play in team sports is stop and go, i.e. where players perform repeated bouts of brief high-intensity exercise punctuated by lower intensity activity. Sprints are generally 2

Letter to the Editor by Javier T. Gonzalez, Research Fellow, Department for Sport, Health & Rehabilitation, Northumbria University, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK. IN RESPONSE TO: Brukner P. Challenging beliefs in sports nutrition: are two core principles proving to be myths ripe for busting? British Journal of Sports Medicine, 2013;47(11):663-64.. The editorial by Brukner [1] provokes an interesting debate around two nutrition-related principles that are certainly worth of discussion. There are however, some points that may be misleading to some readers, particularly regarding the second point. The major problem is the oversimplification of complex issues, which begins in the description of the "principle": "The optimum diet for weight control, general health and athletic performance consists of low fat, high carbohydrate" [1]. The diet for athletic performance is clearly possible to differ from a diet optimized for weight control and/or general health.. Carbohydrate restricted diets are certainly ...

Enjoy a performance-boosting pre-game meal. The pre-game meal should be low in fat, since fatty foods take longer to digest and may leave an athlete still feeling full at game time. Ideally, the pre-game meal is eaten three hours prior to the game. The best pre-game meal would be high in complex carbohydrates (about 70 percent of calories), with medium amounts of protein (about 20 percent of calories), and low in fat (around 10 percent of calories). Protein stimulates insulin to help the muscles use glucose more efficiently. Protein also helps to energize the brain. The small amount of fat slows the intestinal absorption of carbohydrates, so that the sugar enters the bloodstream at a steady rate. For a teen athlete, the pre-game meal should contain about 100 grams of complex carbohydrates. Here are some good foods to include: ...

He has 40+ research papers to his name (see link above to Research Gate).. Discussion topics:. JM on the current approach to hamstring injury rehab and prevention and how would you say there is room for improvement in this area. "Good question. The issue of hamstring injury definitely needs a new boost, a step forward. I think it has been an injury that contrary to other types of injury such as ACL, has been approached from a very analytical and isolated point of view. This influences the intervention carried out.. To give a clear and simple example, in the ACL injury, inciting events such as jumping and side cutting were biomechanically analysed to later analyse how the trunk, hip, ankle or even anatomy influence this inciting event providing a multifactorial approach to the problem.

The physical, social and mental benefits of regular exercise are well known, but how do you maintain your interest in sport and training if it is impacted by hay fever? Particularly when many of us enjoy the opportunity to train and play sport outdoors in the warmer Spring weather.

Victoria University researcher Nir Eynon was part of an international panel of experts who have dismissed claims that current genetic testing of children can identify sporting prowess and ability.. Writing in the British Journal of Sports Medicine (external link), the group found a lack of scientific evidence that current genetic testing can identify young athletes for sporting talent. The study - which involved 22 scientists from fields as diverse as genomics, exercise science, sports performance and anti-doping - found the evidence was too weak to back the growing use of widely available do-it-yourself commercial tests. Researchers involved also expressed concerns that the limited knowledge on the genetics of sports performance is sometimes being misused for commercial gain. That growth of do-it-yourself genetic tests, which claim to be able to spot childrens athletic prowess or tailor training to maximise performance, has almost doubled in the past two years. The panel looked at the ...
The definition of tactical patterns of play in sports has been of interest to a number of researchers. The different tactics used at each level of development within a sport will inevitably depend upon technical development, physical maturation and other variables. The research in this area trys to assess whether patterns exist in how teams play and score with the belief that this information can be useful for identifying strengths and weaknesses in performance.. Probably the most influential and certainly the most controversial notational analyst in Britain was Charles Reep who died in 2002 (Pollard, 2002) having devoted over 50 years to analysing soccer (and other sports) in great detail. Whilst most of his work remains unpublished his legacy remains as the primary advocate of the long-ball game or direct play. His first published paper produced the finding that the structure of soccer is determined by near constants (Reep and Benjamin, 1968) and his work is thought to have influenced many ...

If this feels a little like the old arcade game Whack-A-Mole, where cheeky moles continually pop up and are beaten down again and again, it is. There is a continual cycle between new clandestine methods of performance enhancement, their eventual discovery by the regulatory bodies that police sports legal and ethical boundaries, and the development and institution of tests for those methods.. Some final points should be made here: firstly, there is an enormous disconnect between clandestine performance enhancement at the highest levels and our understanding and detection of it.. Obviously, these topics cannot be discussed freely. Commentators often refer to an "Omertà" within professional sport, a Mafia-like code of silence which prevents anyone speaking out.. Drug users who "come clean" are routinely portrayed as corrupt, bitter or litigious people, regardless of the truth or falsity of their stories.. This is also an extremely difficult area to research. Working with existing sportspeople ...
Athlete : Hey, do you have anything new that will give me an edge over the competition in the upcoming Olympics next year? I need something different, better than what everyone else is using to catch up...
I did not feel "flat" prior to taking the pre-workout so I am not sure if the Energizer made a difference or if I was just feeling good because of the time of the day. However, I will say that my energy levels were consistent throughout my workout and it was one of my better ones. The question is, was it a placebo effect or was it really due to the addition of the Vega Sport Energizer. I definitely didnt feel the instant kick of adrenaline I experience with Optimum Platinum Pre. However, I didnt feel any crash at the end of the workout nor did I feel like my sleep was disturbed at the end of the day. Honestly, I felt the first experience was promising and I look forward to trying it again in greater duration to determine how it works on one of my "flat" sessions. Just off of the ingredients alone I prefer this supplement over the other major name brands ...
Aim: This study investigated how performance was affected after soccer players, in a postprandial state, ingested a 7% carbohydrate (CHO) solution compared to a placebo (0% CHO) during a simulated soccer match. Methods: Using a double-blind placebo-controlled design, 22 trained male league soccer players (age: 24 ± 7 years, wt: 73.4 ± 12.0 kg, VO2max: 51.8 ± 4.3 mL O2/kg/min) completed two trials, separated by 7 days, during which they ingested, in random order, 700 mL of either a 7% CHO or placebo drink during a simulated soccer match. Ratings of perceived exertion (RPE), agility, timed and run to fatigue were measured during the trials. Results: Change in agility times was not altered by CHO vs. placebo ingestion (0.57 ± 1.48 vs. 0.66 ± 1.00, p = 0.81). Timed runs to fatigue were 381 ± 267 s vs. 294 ± 159 s for the CHO and placebo drinks, respectively (p = 0.11). Body mass modified the relationship between time to fatigue and drink ingestion (p = 0.02 for drink × body mass), such that lower
It has been proposed that high exercise loads increase the risk of infection, most frequently reported as upper respiratory tract infections, by suppressing the immune system. Most athletes will not train when experiencing sickness due to the fear of health complications. However, high training volumes are incompatible with high rates of non-training days, regardless of the cause. The purpose of this observational study was to examine the relationship between self-reported, exercise-constraining days of sickness (days when the athlete decided not to train due to symptoms of disease, either self-reported or by a physician) and the volumes of exercise training in elite endurance athletes by analyzing data from training logs kept for several years. The subjects included 11 elite endurance athletes (8 male, 3 female) competing at national and international levels in cross-country skiing, biathlon and long-distance running. Training logs available from these 11 subjects added to a total of 61 ...

This study reports the effects of a hypnosis intervention on a professional soccer player who reported low self-efficacy and a negative mood state relative to his soccer performance. Pre- and postintervention data were collected via a Soccer Self-Efficacy Questionnaire (SSEQ) that consisted of 10 items relating to good soccer performance, the Trait Sport Confidence Inventory (TSCI), the Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS), and a Soccer Performance Measure (SPM). An intervention program consisting of eight hypnosis sessions was conducted. These sessions comprised the presentation of ego-strengthening suggestions. Both visual and statistical analysis revealed substantial increases in trait sport confidence, self-efficacy, positive affect, and soccer performance, as well as a substantial decrease in negative affect over the course of the intervention. The findings of this case study suggest that hypnosis can be used to enhance self-efficacy, affect, and sport performance. A number of ...
Dietary supplements that contain Ma Huang (ephedra alkaloids) and guarana (caffeine) are widely marketed and used in the U.S. for weight loss and athletic performance enhancement, despite a lack of adequate research on the pharmacology of these botanical stimulants. We developed and applied a novel liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS-MS) method to quantitate the various ephedra alkaloids found in dietary supplements that contain Ephedra species. The quantities of ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, norephedrine, norpseudoephedrine, methylephedine, methylpseudoephedrine, and caffeine were determined for 35 commercial dietary supplements and compared with the amounts listed on the product labels. The total ephedra alkaloid content ranged from 5.97 mg to 29.3 mg per serving. Two supplement brands did not list the quantity of ephedra alkaloids on the label, and four did not list the amount of caffeine per serving. Of the products tested, 31% contained , 110% of the total ephedra alkaloids ...
The main aim of the present study was to quantify the magnitude of differences introduced when estimating a given blood volume compartment (e.g. plasma volume) through the direct determination of another compartment (e.g. red cell volume) by multiplication of venous haematocrit and/or haemoglobin concentration. However, since whole body haematocrit is higher than venous haematocrit such an approach might comprise certain errors. To test this experimentally, four different methods for detecting blood volumes and haemoglobin mass (Hbmass) were compared, namely the carbon monoxide (CO) re-breathing (for Hbmass), the indocyanine green (ICG; for plasma volume [PV]) and the sodium fluorescein (SoF; for red blood cell volume [RBCV]) methods. No difference between ICG and CO re-breathing derived PV could be established when a whole body/venous haematocrit correction factor of 0.91 was applied (p = 0.11, r = 0.43, mean difference -340 ± 612 mL). In contrast, when comparing RBCV derived by the CO ...
