Circulating Inflammatory Cytokine Responses to Endurance Exercise in Female Rowers

This investigation examined the effects of acute rowing exercise on a panel of 12 different inflammatory cytokines. Fifteen female rowers (18.3±1.6 yrs; 172.0±5.0 cm; 67.5±8.8 kg; maximal oxygen consumption [VO2max]: 47.2±7.9 ml.min.−1kg−1) completed a 1-h endurance exercise (distance: 12.1±1.1 km; energy expenditure [EE]: 639±69 kcal; heart rate: 151±7 beats.min−1; intensity: 79.6±3.5% of the second ventilatory turn point). Venous blood samples were analysed for interleukin (IL)-2, IL-4, IL-6, ...

Predicted Equation for VO 2 Based on a 20-Meter Multistage Shuttle Run Test for Children

This study compared maximum oxygen consumption (VO2max) on a 20-meter multistage shuttle run test (20-Srt) with a cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) to determine a VO2max prediction equation for a 20-Srt in children aged 6–10 years. Eighty healthy children performed the CPET on a treadmill, while the 20-Srt took place on a sports court. Heart rate (HR) was measured and the expired gases were continuously measured breath-by-breath using a portable gas analyzer. The VO2max was lower (p<0.05) in ...

Association of Trunk Rotational Velocity with Spine Mobility and Curvatures in Para Table Tennis Players

This study investigates the relationship of trunk rotational velocity with mobility and curvature of the spine in wheelchair table tennis players. Eleven para table tennis players and 13 able-bodied athletes performed 5 seated trunk rotations to each side with 1 kg barbell placed on the shoulders. Trunk rotational velocity and respective angular displacement were significantly lower in para table tennis players compared to able-bodied athletes. Both groups showed similar values of thoracic kypho...
