Mesagno, Christopher; Garvey, Jacob; Tibbert, Stephanie J.; Gröpel, Peter – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
When athletes fail to perform at an expected level during an important moment, it is implied the athletes have experienced "choking" (sudden decline in performance) under pressure.". Researchers have reported that persistent left-hemispheric activation patterns occur when an athlete experiences considerable performance…

Garcia-Tabar, Ibai; Rampinini, Ermanno; Gorostiaga, Esteban M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The association between an overlooked classical Lactate Threshold (LT), named "Minimum Lactate Equivalent" (LE[subscript min]), with Maximal Lactate Steady State (MLSS) has been recently described with good MLSS prediction results in endurance-trained runners. This study aimed to determine the applicability of LE[subscript min]…

Leicht, Anthony S.; Fox, Jordan; Connor, Jonathan; Sargent, Charli; Sinclair, Wade; Stanton, Robert; Scanlan, Aaron – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Match activity demands of basketball players have been well reported but little exists in terms of quantifying the demands encountered by referees during match-play. Potential differences between referees and players may identify different fitness capacities and subsequent need for different training regimes. Purpose: The aims of this brief report…

Purpose: To evaluate vascular function and its relationship to cardiorespiratory fitness in professional handball athletes. Method: We examined 30 male professional handball athletes (age 27 [plus or minus] 4 y) and 10 male sedentary controls (age 26[plus or minus] 5 y) at rest. The workup included exercise testing via ergometry. To assess…

Griffiths, Brad; Grant, James; Langdown, Louis; Gentil, Paulo; Fisher, James; Steele, James – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: Resistance training is often performed in a traditional training style using deliberate relatively longer repetition durations or in an explosive training style using maximal intended velocities and relatively shorter repetition durations. Both improve strength, "power" (impulsivity), and speed. This study compared explosive and…

Keatlholetswe, Lesika; Malete, Leapetswe – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
The coaching competency research has demonstrated the role of coaching efficacy and coaching behaviors on various athlete outcomes. However, athlete perceptions of these relationships and how they affect performance are less understood. Purpose: This study examined if coaching efficacy is predictive of player perceptions of coaches' leadership…

Gomes, A. Rui; Gonçalves, A. Manuela; Dias, Olga; Morais, Catarina – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: This study tested two hypotheses relating young athletes' sports motivations to parental behaviors and cognitive appraisal: (1) young athletes' motivation in sports is related to their parents' behavior; and (2) this relationship is mediated by cognitive appraisal, even after controlling for competitive level and sports records. Method:…

Campo, Mickaël; Champely, Stéphane; Louvet, Benoît; Rosnet, Elisabeth; Ferrand, Claude; Pauketat, Janet V. T.; Mackie, Diane M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: In team sports, players have to manage personal interests and group goals, emphasizing intricacies between personal and social identities. The focus of this article was to examine the effect of identity mechanisms on appraisal processes, based on the following research question: Does the level of self-abstraction (low [personal identity]…
