Reproducibility of the Evolution of Stride Biomechanics During Exhaustive Runs

90% of the age-predicted maximum (i.e. 220 - age) and identification of a VO 2max plateau (< 150 ml/min increase despite a further velocity increase). In all tests two of the three criteria were met. MAS was defined as the lowest speed that elicited VO 2max and was used in the next three sessions, which were carried out 3 to 15 days later, as shown in Figure 1 . Figure 1 Study design Each session consisted of running to exhaustion on an equivalent treadmill with a 1% gradient. The running speed was set at 90% of the individual’s MAS (90% MAS

Role of Microbiome in Rheumatic Diseases

in their gut flora [ 4 ]. Feeding with breast-milk containing different milk microbiota and maternal antibodies is another way that may affect the development of their gut flora [ 4 ]. During growth, the composition of the gut microbiota are affected by individual’s lifestyle, diet, and medication use [ 4 ]. Westernized diet with high-saturated fatty acids and sucrose, and low fiber, promote epithelial inflammation and stimulate the pathogenic bacterial growth inside the gut [ 6 ]. Frequent use of the antibiotics further affects the healthy commensals growth and

Effect of muramyl dipeptide and alum adjuvants on immunization with Filarial multi antigen peptide vaccine in mice model

strategies have facilitated the identification of several potential vaccine candidates offering varying degrees of protection against filarial infection in animal models ( Thirugnanam et al ., 2007 ; Anand et al ., 2008 ; Vanam et al ., 2009 ; Dakshinamoorthy et al ., 2013 ). Antioxidant enzymes thioredoxin (TRX), thioredoxin peroxidase (TPX), glutathione-S-transferase (GST), superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GPX), most of which are present in all stages of the parasite and have been involved to protect the parasites from the host are reported

Influence of Physical Aspects and Throwing Velocity in Opposition Situations in Top-Elite and Elite Female Handball Players

investigate whether there were differences in anthropometric and fitness characteristics between top elite and elite players competing in the first Spanish handball league and the relationship with throwing velocity with and without opposition. Furthermore, thanks to the data reported in the present study in the international literature, talent identification and development could be enhanced. Methods Participants Data were collected from 89 women’s team handball players, all competing in the first Spanish handball league; goalkeepers were excluded. These players

Differences in Trunk Strength Between Weightlifters and Wrestlers

, thereby allowing comparisons to the body of normative data. Furthermore, identification of strength deficits with and without pathologies as well as the evaluation of preventive and rehabilitative interventions is of major concern. Extrapolating muscular variables from the torque and power– velocity relationship corresponds to individual muscle characteristics, and enables athletes to be assessed for safety. Determining these variables has practical applications in general and particularly during clinical rehabilitation and scientific research applications in sports

Effects of Plyometric Training on Physical Fitness in Team Sport Athletes: A Systematic Review

positive phase) ( Bedoya et al., 2015 ; Makaruk et al., 2014 ; Michailidis et al., 2013 ). SSC tasks take advantage of the elastic properties of connective tissue and muscle fibers by allowing the muscle to accumulate elastic energy through the deceleration/negative phase and release it later during the acceleration/positive phase to enhance muscle’s force and power output ( Michailidis et al., 2013 ; Padulo et al., 2013 ). Therefore, this regime of SSC muscle contractions is a typical part of muscle activity in a number of specific team sport activities including

Sprinting, Change of Direction Ability and Horizontal Jump Performance in Youth Runners According to Gender

on the other hand, that peak fiber size does not plateau until the age of 16 years ( Eisenmann and Malina, 2003 ), we expected significant differences in jumping, sprinting and CODA in the participants between U14 and U16. Furthermore, taking into account that chronological age itself exerts a positive influence on short term power output ( Armstrong et al., 2001 ) and that the tests performed in this study are positively related to this characteristic, we cannot explain why the observed differences in younger ages were not maintained above 14 yr.
