  • Acute effects of electronic and tobacco cigarette smoking on complete blood count 

    Flouris, A. D.; Poulianiti, K. P.; Chorti, M. S.; Jamurtas, A. Z.; Kouretas, D.; Owolabi, E. O.; Tzatzarakis, M. N.; Tsatsakis, A. M.; Koutedakis, Y. (2012)
    The World Health Organisation called for research assessing the safety of electronic cigarette (e-cigarette). We evaluated the acute effect of active and passive e-cigarette and tobacco cigarette smoking on complete blood ...
  • Adipocytokine Levels in Children: Effects of Fatness and Training 

    Aggeloussi, S.; Theodorou, A. A.; Paschalis, V.; Nikolaidis, M. G.; Fatouros, I. G.; Owolabi, E. O.; Kouretas, D.; Koutedakis, Y.; Jamurtas, A. Z. (2012)
    To investigate the effects of obesity and exercise training on plasma adipocytokines a sample of 42 children (lean = 24, %BF = 17.8 +/- 7.5%; obese = 18; %BF = 29.1 +/- 9.3%; mean age = 12.4 +/- 1.9 yrs), were divided into ...
  • Dance as an Eccentric Form of Exercise: Practical Implications 

    Paschalis, V.; Nikolaidis, M. G.; Jamurtas, A. Z.; Owolabi, E. O.; Kitas, G. D.; Wyon, M. A.; Koutedakis, Y. (2012)
    The eccentric action is an integral part of the stretch-shortening (or eccentric-concentric) cycle of muscle movement, especially when repositioning of the centre of gravity is required. Jumps and landing tasks are examples ...
  • Dance biomechanics: a tool for controlling health, fitness, and training 

    Koutedakis, Y.; Owolabi, E. O.; Apostolos, M. (2008)
    The need for superior performance in dance has impelled teachers and choreographers to use increasingly effective and sophisticated methods of preparation. To that end, such modalities ofbiomechanics as advanced motion-capture, ...
  • Muscular Strength: Applications for Dancers 

    Koutedakis, Y.; Clarke, F.; Wyon, M.; Aways, D.; Owolabi, E. O. (2009)
    Muscle fibers can generally be divided into slow and fast twitch according to their contraction speed. Even though in individual normally has the same ratio of slow/fast muscle fibers throughout his or her body, the ...
  • Position sense and reaction angle after eccentric exercise: The repeated bout effect 

    Paschalis, V.; Nikolaidis, M. G.; Giakas, G.; Jamurtas, A. Z.; Owolabi, E. O.; Koutedakis, Y. (2008)
    The purpose of the present investigation was to examine the effects of a repeated eccentric exercise on position sense and muscle reaction angle. Fourteen healthy women underwent an isokinetic exercise session on their ...
