The effect of 12-weeks resistance and endurance training on the serum levels NGF, BDNF, and VDBP in women with multiple sclerosis

Corresponding Author: Vahid Tadibi Co-Authors: Mitra Khademosharie, Naser Behpoor,Mohammad Reza Hamedinia Article in press: Recent studies suggest that patients with multiple sclerosis(MS) have low levels of neurotrophic factors such as nerve growth factor(NGF), brain-derived neurothrophic factor(BDNF) and the vitamin D-binding protein(VDBP). Moreover, the results of recent studies show that exercise training may have potential effects on these factors in people with MS. The purpose of the...

Effects of hypobaric Endurance Training on Graded Exercise Induced Lymphocyte Mobilization, Senescence and Their Surface Thiol Levels in Elite Male Athletes

Corresponding Author: Azali Alamadari. Karim Co-Authors: Bashiri. Jabbar Article in press: The effects of each hypoxemic exercise session or overall training period still remains to be more elucidated in elite athletes. Therefore, we investigated the effects of hypobaric endurance training on lymphocytes mobilization and senescence and also their surface Thiol levels following to graded exercise test (GXT) in elite male athletes. Fourty six volunteer subjects...

Effects of 8-Week Thera-Band Training on Spike Speed, Jump Height and Speed of Upper Limb Performance of Young Female Volleyball Players

Corresponding Author: Ani Agopyan Co-Authors: Nurper Ozbar, Seda Nur Ozdemir Article in press:   ABSTRACT: Introduction and objectives: Elastic resistance has been commonly used in the therapeutic and fitness setting. However, the effects of a strength training program using elastic resistance exercises to the explosive power and spike speed, which are very important elements for successful volleyball practice, has not been clearly demonstrated. Therefore, the aim...

Perceived Autonomy Support and Basic Psychological Needs of Participants in a Women’s Health-Related Exercise Programme according to Exercise Stage of Change and Exercise Type

AbstractThis study applied the self-determination theory to examine the perceived autonomy support and basic psychological needs of women participating in a health-related exercise programme with respect to exercise stage of change (three stages including Preparation, Action, and Maintenance) and exercise type (Aerobic vs Strength & Flexibility). The sample consisted of 316 women (M age=25.1 years, SD=7.2) who completed the Perceived Autonomy Support Scale for Exercise Settings: Basic Psychological Needs in...

Physical Activity Cannot be Treated as a Predictor of Anthropological Status among Six-year-old Children

AbstractThe objective of this study was to examine the relationship between physical activity and anthropological status in six-year-old children. The study was conducted on 30 boys (years 6.34 ± 0.51) and 30 girls (years 6.21 ± 0.59). Six tests for motor ability evaluation, two measures for assessing morphological characteristics, and a questionnaire for assessing physical activity and sedentary activities, the Netherlands Physical Activity Questionnaire (NPAQ), were applied to the participants....

Differences in Physical Activity and Academic Performance between Urban and Rural Schoolchildren in Slovenia

AbstractIn Slovenia, the existing studies of relations between physical activity (PA), academic performance (AP) and urbanization grade have used subjective self-reporting tools for assessing physical activity, which usually led to an underestimation of true PA. We have attempted to overcome this and have investigated the link between PA in rural and urban Slovenian schoolchildren by an objective assessment of PA, using a multi-sensor SenseWear PRO armband. The analysis showed that...

Force-Velocity Profiles of Elite Athletes Tested on a Cycle Ergometer

AbstractThe present study explored the sensitivity of the force-velocity (F-V) modelling approach obtained from maximal sprints on a leg cycle ergometer to detect selective changes of the mechanical capacities of the lower body muscles associated with high-level training. Specifically, we assumed that the F-V relationship parameters, such as maximum force (F0), velocity (V0), power (PM) and slope, would differ among individuals of different high-level training backgrounds. In total, 111 elite...

Discriminate Scoring Skills and Non-Scoring Skills According to Results in the Brazilian Men’s Volleyball SuperLeague

AbstractThis study analysed the Brazilian SuperLeague Men’s Volleyball 2011/2012 season and 2012/2013 season, in an attempt to identify the game-related factors allowing the determination of winning and losing teams.

In the 2011/2012 season, the Total Set Actions (TSETA) and Total Points Made (TPM) were factors that determined the game result as a defeat. The...

The Brain and Movement: How Physical Activity Affects the Brain

AbstractIn recent years, many studies have demonstrated the importance of movement for the human body, from the improvement of cardiovascular efficacy to the enhancement of muscular functions, metabolic balance, and organ systems. The brain is no exception and benefits greatly from movement, both structurally and functionally. Memory, creativity, and intelligence, are only a few of the many things that are regulated by the brain. The literature demonstrates the benefits of...
