Evolution of Determinant Factors of Repeated Sprint Ability

(7.51 ± 0.09 s, Figure 1A ). The differences in RSA mean and all single sprints were unclear in almost all RSA performance variables between best (2.2 ± 0.7%) and worst (4.6 ± 1.0%) players in the %Dec ( Figure 1B ). The fastest players in the T 30 (4.16 ± 0.08 s) were significantly ( p < .05 – .01) faster in RSA mean and in all single sprints than the slowest players in the T 30 (4.40 ± 0.07 s, Figure 1C ). The players with greater YYIRT-1 performance (1835 ± 235 m) showed greater ( p < .05 - .01) performance in both RSA mean and almost all single sprints

Increased Prevalence of the IL-6 -174C Genetic Polymorphism in Long Distance Swimmers

of tris HCl, pH = 8.5 + 0.5 M of EDTA + 10% SDS + 5 M of NaCl 40 mL added D.D.W. to 1000 mL was added to the white cell solution. Proteinase K (200 µg) was added to the solution. The tubes were incubated at 50°C in a shaker incubator for overnight for digestion. After digestion, one volume of ethanol (-20°C) was added to the lysate and the samples were swirled until precipitation was completed (20-30 min, until it became completely transparent). The DNA was recovered by lifting the aggregated precipitate from the solution, using a disposable tip. Excess liquid was

Exercise‐Based Cardiac Rehabilitation with and without Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation and its Effect on Exercise Tolerance and Life Quality of Persons with Chronic Heart Failure

was found appropriate for 57 participants, of whom 15 received 35Hz/NMES, 11 10Hz/NMES, 16 sham/NMES and 15 patients were controls. Model D was applied to 15 patients, three of whom were administered 35Hz/NMES, 7 patients received - 10Hz/NMES, 2 patients sham/NMES and 3 patients were controls. As the health of all patients covered by model D improved, model C was introduced instead. After 1 week, 4 patients rehabilitated according to model C were assigned model B on account of the progress they made. To make sure that exercising was safe for patients, they were

Accuracy of a 10 Hz GPS Unit in Measuring Shuttle Velocity Performed at Different Speeds and Distances (5 – 20 M)

: d = T tot ·V A ; distance measurement accuracy was thus estimated by comparing these values (d) with the criterion (SDc). Statistical analysis Data are presented as means ± SD. A Shapiro-Wilk test was performed for the evaluation of normality (assumption) for statistical distribution. For each variable a 2-way ANOVA for repeated measures (between Video and GPS data and within 5, 10, 15 and 20 m distances) was applied. Statistical significance was set at p < 0.05. When a significant F-value was found, the Bonferroni post hoc test was applied. The

Effects of Single versus Multiple Bouts of Resistance Training on Maximal Strength and Anaerobic Performance

least one year before this study. During the study period, the aforementioned substances were not allowed either. The sample size was determined using power analysis software G ∗ Power 3.0 (Franz Faul, Kiel University, Germany), on the basis of the results of the maximal bench press performance in Baker et al. (2013) . Accordingly, each group should comprise 10 participants to provide 80% power at the 0.05 level of significance. All participants (male, age = 22.0 ± 1.0 years) were randomly assigned to one of the two following groups: one single bout (SB) or triple
