Araújo, Jaqueline A.; Queiroz, Marilene G.; Dias, André R. L.; Sousa, Laila C. J. L.; Arsa, Gisela; Cambri, Lucieli T. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: To evaluate whether excess body mass influences the heart rate variability (HRV) indexes at rest, and to correlate adiposity indicators and the aerobic fitness with cardiac autonomic variables in metabolically healthy young adults. Method: In all, 41 untrained males (M[subscript age] = 21.80, SD = 2.14 years), 14 normal weight…

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…

Ammar, Achraf; Riemann, Bryan L.; Trabelsi, Khaled; Blaumann, Marcel; Abdelkarim, Osama; Chtourou, Hamdi; Driss, Tarak; Hökelmann, Anita – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The aim of this study was to examine the effect of 3- vs. 2-minute inter maximal-repetition rest period (IMRRP) on maintaining jerk technical efficiency and power production during two successive maximal repetitions of Clean & Jerk (C&J). Methods: In a randomized, within subject, repeated measures design, nine elite-weightlifters…

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…

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…

Tamura, Kosuke; Wilson, Jeffrey S.; Goldfeld, Keith; Puett, Robin C.; Klenosky, David B.; Harper, William A.; Troped, Philip J. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: Most built environment studies have quantified characteristics of the areas around participants' homes. However, the environmental exposures for physical activity (PA) are spatially dynamic rather than static. Thus, merged accelerometer and global positioning system (GPS) data were utilized to estimate associations between the built…

Akinci, Buket; Yeldan, Ipek; Celik, Selda; Satman, Ilhan – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: This study aimed (1) to compare physical activity (PA) indicators, metabolic biomarkers, and comorbidity, (2) to investigate the relationship between PA indicators and metabolic biomarkers, comorbidity and (3) to identify barriers to PA in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) who are using oral hypoglycaemic agent (OHA) or combined OHA…

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…

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…

Pind, Rasmus; Mooses, Kerli; Suvi, Silva; Purge, Priit; Viru, Mehis; Pehme, Ando; Kaasik, Priit; Mooses, Martin – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the differences in metabolic responses between the track and the treadmill (1% inclination) running. The latter is recommended for use in laboratory settings to mimic outdoor running. Method: Seventeen male endurance athletes (mean 25.8, s = 3.8 years) performed 4-min running bouts on an indoor…

Robinson, Leah E.; Palmer, Kara K.; Webster, E. Kipling; Logan, Samuel W.; Chinn, Katherine M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: This feasibility study compared the effects of 2 movement programs, traditional and mastery climate (i.e., the Children's Health Activity Motor Program [CHAMP]), on lesson context and children's physical activity (PA) levels. A secondary aim was to examine sex differences in PA levels in both programs. Method: Seventy-two preschoolers…
