Perception of specific military skills – the impact of perfectionism and self-efficacy

perceived ability, feedback, and reflection, which then regulate behavior accordingly ( Bandura 1994 , 1997 ); self-efficacy may hence mediate and allow inherent personality traits to be expressed in specific behavior ( Fosse et al. 2015 ). 1.1 Specific military skills and the development of military skills The ideal conduct of military duties requires abilities such as being able to handle stress and bearing with uncertainty in different situations.

Cardiovascular and Perceived Effort in Different Head‐Out Water Exercises: Effect of Limbs’ Action and Resistance Equipment

exercise. There are several equipment commercially available to elicit more exertion. Despite having buoyancy features, equipment like dumbbells or leggings is mostly used as “resistance (or drag) devices” for strength and conditioning purposes. Literature shows little evidence on the acute adaptations when using dumbbells, whereas information on leggings is nonexistent. Costa et al. (2008) noted that performing the “rocking horse” exercise with dumbbells increased the rating of perceived exertion, heart rate and blood lactate concentrations when compared to the same

Thermal Sensations During a Partial-Body Cryostimulation Exposure in Elite Basketball Players

., 2009 ). PBC is available in a mobile device which enables its use at training and competition sites. Benefits of PBC for physical recovery improvement have been demonstrated ( Bouzigon et al., 2016 ). However, whether an exposure at –130 °C or less is well tolerated by athletes during a competition is questionable. Such exposure could be perceived as too painful, stressful and even dangerous and could lower or eliminate the beneficial effects of cryostimulation. During competition, psychological stress increases in athletes ( Filaire et al., 2001 ). Moreover

Monitoring Salivary Immunoglobulin A Responses to Official and Simulated Matches In Elite Young Soccer Players

, OM represented a sufficient source of stress that resulted in a significant decrement in SIgA concentration. This result suggests that the additional stress provided by participating in an official competition may lead to changes in the mucosal immunity function in young soccer players. These findings are in agreement with data from the study conducted on young female handball players ( Nazem et al., 2011 ) that reported a decrement in SIgA concentration after matches perceived as “more difficult”. Considering the results from the present study and the findings
