Virtuoso, Janeisa Franck; Menezes, Enaiane Cristina; Mazo, Giovana Zarpellon – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: To determine if weight training combined with pelvic floor muscle training is more efficient than pelvic floor muscle training alone for the treatment of urinary incontinence (UI) symptoms in elderly women. Method: This was a two-arm, parallel, randomized controlled trial. Twenty-six women with stress UI participated in the study. The…

Rieping, Taís; Furtado, Guilherme Eustáquio; Letieri, Rubens Vinícius; Chupel, Matheus Uba; Colado, Juan C.; Hogervorst, Eef; Filaire, Edith; Teixeira, Ana Maria Miranda Botelho; Ferreira, José Pedro – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The aim of this study was to test the effects of chair-based exercise programs on salivary stress hormones, physical fitness, and functional autonomy of institutionalized older women. Method: In total, 47 participants (80 ± 8.04 years old) were recruited and allocated into three groups: chair-based aerobic exercises (CAE, n = 19),…

Purpose: To compare the effects of three water-based resistance trainings on neuromuscular parameters of older women. Method: Thirty-six women were randomized to groups: simple set of 30 seconds (1 × 30 s, 66.41 ± 4.71 years, n = 12), multiple sets of 10 seconds (3 × 10 s, 66.50 ± 4.74 years, n = 11), and simple set of 10 seconds (1 × 10 s,…

Lins-Filho, Ozeas L.; Santos, Tony M.; Ritti-Dias, Raphael M.; Damasceno, Vinícius O.; Ferreira, Daniela K. S. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Background: Self-selected exercise intensity (SSEI) promotes higher affect (pleasure) during exercise, but its reliability is still unclear. Purpose: to evaluate the test-retest reliability and the minimum detectable change of the perceptive and physiological responses in two sessions of SSEI on treadmill in elderly women. Method: Twenty elderly…

Purpose: Heat intolerance (HI) is determined in the Israel Defense Force according to a heat tolerance test (HTT) before returning to duty after an exertional heat stroke (EHS) event. Recently, increased numbers of female combatants resulted in an increased number of EHS cases among women and a higher percentage of heat intolerance (HI)…

Gil-Rey, Erreka; Maldonado-Martín, Sara; Gorostiaga, Esteban M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The aim of this study was to compare the widely used accelerometer activity cut-points derived from the absolute moderate intensity recommendation (3-6 METs), with relative intensity cut-points according to maximal cardiorespiratory fitness (46%-63% VO[subscript 2max]) and to individual lactate thresholds (LT1 and LT2) in postmenopausal…

Haegele, Justin A.; Zhu, Xihe; Holland, Katherine – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to adopt an explicitly intersectional approach to examine the experiences of women identifying as having a visual impairment and as being overweight or obese in integrated physical education (PE). Method: An interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA) research approach was used, and six women (ages 25-34)…

Dokumaci, Bircan; Hazir, Tahir – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: This study investigated the effects of the menstrual cycle on running economy (RE). Method: Eleven eumenorrheic female athletes (mean age: 21.18 [plus or minus] 3.65 years, height: 170.2 [plus or minus] 6.6 cm, VO[subscript 2]max: 49.25 [plus or minus] 9.15 mL[middle dot]kg[superscript -1][middle dot]min[superscript -1], and menstrual…

Szumilewicz, Anna; Hopkins, Will G.; Dornowski, Marcin; Piernicka, Magdalena – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
A quick, well-timed pelvic-floor muscle contraction during physical effort is recommended for active women to prevent urine leakage. Purpose: We address two research questions: how well do future female exercise professionals contract the pelvic-floor muscles, and whether the biofeedback session is necessary to train them to contract pelvic-floor…

Alberton, Cristine Lima; Nunes, Gabriela Neves; Rau, Douglas Guerreiro Dos Santos; Bergamin, Marco; Cavalli, Adriana Schüller; Pinto, Stephanie Santana – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The present study aimed to compare the vertical ground reaction force responses during the performance of the stationary running water-based exercise with and without equipment at different cadences by elderly women. Method: Nineteen elderly women (age: 68.6 ± 5.0 years; body mass: 69.0 ± 9.5 kg; height: 154.9 ± 5.6 cm) completed one…

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…
