Plasma Actin, Gelsolin and Orosomucoid Levels after Eccentric Exercise

indicator of the type and extent of injury. Our data and previous research suggest that it is an inappropriate marker of EIMD, however, plasma GSN concentrations show significant relationships with indicators of EIMD and the inflammatory process in striated muscles after exercise. This may explain the elevated plasma AGP level and the correlation between GSN and AGP concentrations.

The Effectiveness of Land and Water Based Resistance Training on Shoulder Rotator Cuff Strength and Balance of Youth Swimmers

an increase in shoulder rotators balance and ER endurance. Therefore, swimming coaches should use mainly dry-land strength-training programs, focusing specifically on strengthening the ER and stabilizers of the shoulder joint. Acknowledgements This project was supported by the National Funds through FCT - Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (UID/DTP/04045/2013) - and the European Fund for regional development (FEDER) allocated by the European Union through the COMPETE 2020 Programme (POCI-01-0145-FEDER-006969).

The Impact of Rule Modifications on Elite Basketball Teams’ Performance

the final game-related statistics. Therefore, future research should be controlled for technical, tactical and physical information, such as series of discrete events, physical performances and the interactions affected by the quality of the opposition. Acknowledgements This work was partially subsidized by the Ayuda a los Grupos de Investigación (GR15122) of the Junta de Extremadura (Consejería de Economía e Infraestructuras); with the contribution of the European Union through the FEDER.

The Impact of Nonlinear Pedagogy on Decision-Making and Execution in Youth Soccer Players According to Game Actions

research is needed to clarify whether the technical teaching model should be considered for the development of this action (with greater technical complexity) or if it is the level of opposition that should be manipulated rather than the tasks design. Acknowledgements This work was supported by the Ministry of Employment, Enterprise and Innovation of the Government of Extremadura (Spain) through the European Regional Development funds.

Motivational Climate Sport Youth Scale: Measurement Invariance Across Gender and Five Different Sports

perception athletes have about the motivational climate in view of the success or failure criteria that are inherent to the sport accomplishment context. Nevertheless, we recommend conducting further studies with this scale in other individual sports, including invariance model analysis, in order to better understand its psychometric properties.
