Pérez-Ferreirós, Alexandra; Kalén, Anton; Gómez, Miguel-Ángel; Rey, Ezequiel – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
In basketball, game-related statistics are the most common measure of performance. However, the literature assessing their reliability is scarce. Purpose: Analyze the number of games required to obtain a good relative and absolute reliability of teams' game-related statistics. Method: A total of 884 games from the 2015-2016 to 2017-2018 seasons of…

Yanovich, Ran; Ketko, Itay; Muginshtein-Simkovitch, Jeni; Yanovich, Einat; Eliyahu, Uri; Fleischmann, Chen; Atias-Varon, Danit; Waissengrin, Barliz; Makranz, Chen; Heled, Yuval – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
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)…

Oh, Junghwan; Graber, Kim C. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: Given criticism of P-12 physical education and wide variability in instructional quality and subject matter outcomes in the United States (US), a national curriculum has been debated by some scholars as a mechanism for improving the status of the subject matter. Grounded in the systemic reform (SR) model, the purpose of this study was to…

Morris, Cody E.; Wessel, Paige A.; Tinius, Rachel A.; Schafer, Mark A.; Maples, Jill M. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the agreement of five commercially available accelerometers in estimating energy expenditure while performing an acute bout of high-intensity functional training (HIFT). Methods: Participants (n = 47; average age: 28.5 ± 11.6 years) consisted of recreationally active, healthy adults. Each…

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)…

Malek, Lukasz A.; Mróz, Anna; Czajkowska, Anna; Kosmol, Andrzej; Ogonowska-Slodownik, Anna; Molik, Bartosz; Morgulec-Adamowicz, Natalia – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The aim of the study was to analyze the accuracy of impedance cardiography (ICG) for hemodynamic assessment in wheelchair rugby players during rest and exercise. Method: The study included 21 players (mean age 33.0 ± 5.4, 86% male) with posttraumatic tetraplegia. ECG, echocardiography, and gas exchange analysis during rest and exercise…

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…

Limpens, Vera; Buszard, Tim; Shoemaker, Emma; Savelsbergh, Geert J. P.; Reid, Machar – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2018
Purpose: The net height in tennis (0.91 m) is approximately 50% of a professional tennis player's height. Children are also expected to play with this net height, even though it is approximately 70% of the average 10-year-old's height. This study examined the immediate effect of lowering net height on the performance characteristics of skilled…
