Position sense and reaction angle after eccentric exercise: The repeated bout effect
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 ...
Does living in urban or rural settings affect aspects of physical fitness in children? An allometric approach
Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate physical fitness in relation to fatness in urban and rural Greek children by means of allometric scaling. Methods: The sample consisted of 360 (189 urban and 171 rural; ...
Criterion-related validity and test-retest reliability of the 20 m Square Shuttle Test
We assessed validity and reliability of the new 20 m square shuttle run test (SST) for predicting maximal oxygen uptake (over(V, ̇) O2 max) and compared it with its predecessor, the 20 m Multistage Shuttle Run Test (MST). ...
Passive smoking, asthma and allergy in children
Despite the recent campaigns to eliminate smoking and hinder the detrimental effects of passive smoking (PS), actual smoking rates still increase worldwide. Several physiological systems, with the respiratory being the ...
Examination of weight transfer strategies during the execution of grand battement devant at the barre, in the center, and traveling
The purpose of this study was to examine grand battement devant at the barre, in the center, and traveling through space. The primary focus was to consider weight transfer in three conditions: from two feet to one foot for ...
Comparison between leg and arm eccentric exercises of the same relative intensity on indices of muscle damage
Many exercise models have demonstrated associations between eccentric muscle actions and muscle damage. However, the magnitude of muscle damage varies among the models. It appears that responses to eccentric exercise are ...
