Predicting Competition Performance in Short Trail Running Races with Lactate Thresholds

, 2012 ). However, data on performance predictions in trail running are still relatively scarce ( Balducci et al., 2017 ; Ehrström et al., 2017 ; Fornasiero et al., 2017 ; Scheer et al., 2018 a) and this may partly be due to the complexity of trail running with its prolonged uphill and downhill running sections, over uneven terrain, placing different physiological and biomechanical demands on the musculature and the human body compared to road running ( Degache et al., 2013 ; Giandolini et al., 2016 ; Giovanelli et al., 2016 ). Lower limb muscular strength and

Changes in Triathletes’ Performance and Body Composition During a Specific Training Period for a Half-Ironman Race

and recreational triathlon ( WTC, 2016 ). High values of maximum oxygen uptake (VO 2max ) and the ventilatory threshold (VT) 2 have been linked to performance levels in ultra-endurance races ( Whyte et al., 2000 ). Furthermore, other performance factors such as core temperature, feeding, hydration and even muscle cramps during the race have been related to performance in long-distance events ( Laursen, 2011 ; Michalczyk et al. 2016 ,). Body composition is also related to performance in endurance sports, including triathlons. An excess of body weight is

Diurnal Variations in Physical Performance: Are There Morning-to-Evening Differences in Elite Male Handball Players?

evening. Thus, it is important to establish if diurnal variations in performance exist for optimal training approaches and match preparation strategies to be implemented. Chtourou and Souissi (2012) concluded training in the morning could improve morning performance and reduce diurnal fluctuations in performance across the morning and evening. Furthermore, in some cases morning training increases physical performance more than training in the evening ( Chtourou et al., 2012 ). In contrast, chronic training in the evening leads to higher daily variations in physical

A Shot Number Based Approach to Performance Analysis in Table Tennis

traveling fast. In order to improve such competitive abilities, players need to analyse their performance in detail and make an effective training plan. In recent years, performance analysis in table tennis has grown in popularity. In the International Journal of Table Tennis Science published by the International Table Tennis Federation in 2013, eight papers were categorised as ‘Game Analysis’, which strongly related to performance analysis, and they accounted for 22% of all papers in the journal. Performance analysis provides objective data related to players’ skills
