Relationships Between the Expression of the ACTN3 Gene and Explosive Power of Soccer Players

), according to the manufacturer’s protocol. The quality and quantity of isolated RNA was assessed spectrophotometrically (Eppendorf BioPhotometrTM Plus, Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany). The purity of total RNA (ratio of 16S to 18S fraction) was determined in the automated electrophoresis using the RNA Nano Chips Lab Chipplates in Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer (Agilent Technologies, Santa Clara, CA). Complementary DNA (cDNA) was transcribed from 100 ng of total RNA, using a High‐Capacity cDNA Reverse Transcription Kit (Applied Biosystems, Carlsbad, CA, USA) in a total volume of 20

Rest Redistribution Functions as a Free and Ad-Hoc Equivalent to Commonly Used Velocity-Based Training Thresholds During Clean Pulls at Different Loads

terminated once athletes’ velocity drops below the predetermined velocity threshold. Therefore, if an athlete has a single “bad repetition”, the VBT threshold informs the coach that the athlete should cease the set, whereas in reality, it is possible that the next repetition (or few repetitions) could still be performed above the threshold. This could be problematic as training volume would be incorrectly and inadvertently reduced beyond what is desired. This type of a real-life scenario introduces the idea that although the force-velocity relationship is linear, the

Genetic Markers Associated with Power Athlete Status

athletes, the frequency of the SOD2 Val/Val genotype was shown to be significantly lower in power/strength athletes compared to controls or athletes involved in low-intensity sports. Furthermore, the SOD2 16Val allele was significantly associated with increased activity of creatine kinase and the creatinine level in athletes ( Ahmetov et al., 2014 ). 5) Markers that are regulators of energy metabolism and cellular homeostasis Mitochondria are essential to all higher organisms for sustaining life, and are extremely important in energy metabolism, providing 36

Motivational Antecedents of Well-Being and Health Related Behaviors in Adolescents

; Duda and Nicholls, 1992 ; Tanaka and Murayama, 2014 ). Previous studies have also pointed to interdependence between adolescents’ satisfaction with their life and health behavior patterns ( Desousa et al., 2008 ; Sun and Shek, 2010 ; Stubbe et al., 2007 ). However, to date, these findings have not been pulled together in a process model centered on the interplay between motivation-related characteristics, quality of engagement in achievement activities, well-being and health related behaviors in teenagers. Consequently the main objective of this paper was to test

Pulmonary Rehabilitation with a Stabilometric Platform After Thoracic Surgery: A Preliminary Report

in the 6MWT, which was conducted according to Polish guidelines ( Przybyłowski et al., 2015 ). To estimate the quality of life, the Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36) was applied. This survey belongs to a group of tools used to estimate the general quality of life and is commonly used in many health service institutions (Ware at al., 2004). The SF-36 consists of 36 questions that describe the state of health. The SF-36 allows for the description of the physical quality of life as the Physical Cumulative Score (PCS ), which consists of 4 domains: Physical
