Abstract Objective To verify the thermoregulatory and perceptual responses of obese and lean girls, either fit or unfit, exercising in the heat at a similar rate of metabolic heat production per unit body mass. Methods A total of 34 pubescent girls were allocated in four groups: 12 obese fit, 9 obese unfit, 5 lean fit, and 8 lean unfit. The obese groups (13.2 ± 1.4 years, 40.5% ± 5.8% fat by DXA) differed in their aerobic fitness ( V ˙ O 2 peak 76.0 ± 8.1 vs. 56.6 ± 5.8 mL.kg muscle mass −1 .min...

ABSTRACTThis study investigated the effects of maturity status on knee extensor torque and vastus lateralis architecture of young soccer players. Thirty-four males aged 13–18 years were divided into two groups: pubescent (PUB, n = 15) and postpubescent (POSP, n = 19). Torque by angle interaction was established for absolute [F(2.649, 84.771) = 9.066, p < 0.05] and relative to body mass [F(2.704, 86.533) = 4.050, p < 0.05] isometric torque with the POSP group showing greater values. Muscle volume...

It’s unclear whether the combination of intense, chronic training and heat exposure during prepubescence improves thermoregulatory responses to exercise in artistic gymnastics athletes. The objective of this study was to compare thermoregulatory and perceptual responses between artistic gymnastics athletes and non-athlete girls while exercising both in heat and thermoneutral conditions. Seven athletes (8.7 ± 1.3 yrs) and 7 nonathletes (9.4 ± 1.5 yrs) cycled for 30 min at load (W) of ~55% VO2peak...

Objective To compare thermoregulatory and perceptual responses between lean and obese girls during and after exercise under heat (HC) and thermoneutral (TC) conditions. Study design In a randomized order, 27 girls (14 lean [16.6 6.7% fat and 9.1 1.3 years] and 13 obese [41.3 6.7% fat and 9.4 1.1 years]) cycled 30 minutes at 55% peak oxygen uptake in 2 sessions, which only differed in the thermal conditions (35C and 40% relative humidity vs 24C and 50% relative humidity). Results Initial rectal t...

The purpose of the study was to estimate the prevalence of insufficient physical activity and associated factors in adolescents 10 to 19 years old living in the Health Districts of Restinga and Extremo Sul of Porto Alegre, RS. A population-based, cross-sectional study was conducted by a systematic sampling with 967 adolescents randomly selected. Data was collected by using a questionnaire with the following variables: gender, age, skin color, if currently studying, occupation, socioeconomic stat...

This study compared rectal temperature (T re ), heat sensation and sweating between obese and non-obese boys during cycling in the heat. Participants (aged 12–15 years) were 17 obese and 16 non-obese (BMI=29.4±4.3 and 16.8±1.7 kg · m − 2 , respectively) boys. They cycled for 30-min (50–55% VO 2peak ) in a climatic chamber (35°C, 45% RH) and T re , heat sensation and sweat volume were monitored. From the start to the end of cycling, T re was similar between the obese (37.4±0.3–37.8±0.3°C) and non...
