PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of sports compression tights in reducing muscle movement and activation during running. METHODS: A total of 27 recreationally active males were recruited across two separate studies. For study 1, 13 participants (mean +/- SD = 84.1 +/- 9.4 kg, 22 +/- 3 yr) completed two 4-min treadmill running bouts (2 min at 12 and 15 km.h) under two conditions: a no-compression control (CON1) and compression (COMP). For study 2, 14 partici...

Abstract Objectives To assess the magnitude of changes in, and relationships between, physical and mental fatigue pre-to-post match in elite development netballers. Design Observational. Methods Twelve female netballers (21.3 ± 2.9 years) competing in the Australian Netball League reported perceptual measures of mental and physical fatigue pre- and post-match on 12 separate competition occasions. Minutes played, to allow for calculation of weighted changes (ratings proportional to playing time),...

It is increasingly recognised that many athletes have poor sleep quantity and/or quality despite the advances in knowledge regarding the importance of sleep for an athletic population. The majority of research in sleep assessment and treatment (within the general population) focuses on the medical disorder insomnia, and therefore may not be specifically relevant for athletes. Further, there are currently no guidelines for the standardisation of assessment, intervention, feedback and behaviour ch...
