The Impact of the Progressive Efficiency Test on a Rowing Ergometer on White Blood Cells Distribution and Clinical Chemistry Changes in Paralympic Rowers During the Preparatory Stage Before the Paralympic Games in Rio, 2016 – A Case Report

’ blood. There is a thin line between the desired stimulation and overreaching or overtraining, especially during the preparatory stage before prestigious competitions like the Olympic Games. It should be emphasized that there is a large gap in research regarding post-exercise blood changes in disabled athletes. There is little data on the adaptive mechanisms to exercise in disabled athletes. This is probably due to difficulties in gathering a homogenous group of athletes. Rowing, representing an endurance sport discipline, is characterized by very intense competition

Changes in Muscle Stiffness of the Trapezius Muscle after Application of Ischemic Compression into Myofascial Trigger Points in Professional Basketball Players

treatment programs of professional athletes ( Vahimets et al., 2006 ). Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) is mainly featured by myofascial trigger points (MTrPs) and is a musculoskeletal disorder that can be developed with any type of sports training and performance. The shoulder and scapula regions including the upper trapezius muscle are the most common areas developing myofascial pain syndrome among overhead sport activities ( Hidalgo-Lozano et al., 2013 ). MTrPs are characterized by the presence of a palpable taut band or a spot within a skeletal muscle ( Barbero et al

Performance Trends in Master Butterfly Swimmers Competing in the FINA World Championships

compared to women ( König et al., 2014 ). For elite butterfly swimmers, the age of peak performance ( Zingg et al., 2014 ) and the sex difference in peak butterfly performance ( König et al., 2014 ; Wolfrum et al., 2013 ; Zingg et al., 2014 ) have been already investigated. Most of research on this sport discipline concerns elite swimmers and less information is available regarding master swimmers. Considering master athletes, it is known that swimming performance decreases with age ( Gatta et al., 2006 ; Senefeld et al., 2016). The decrease in performance in master
