Abstract Background The objective of this population-based study was to examine whether there was association of hand grip strength (HGS) with cardiopulmonary function in population without cardiopulmonary disease. Methods Data were derived from an ongoing cross-sectional survey of the National Physique and Health in Shanxi Province. There were 908 participants with the cardiac function tests and 380 participants with the pulmonary function tests. Multiple linear regression analysis was used to ...
Abstract Objective The assessment of motor coordination is a very complex process and demonstrates a high degree of sport specificity. There are a limited number of tests, if any, where results correlate with the success rate of athletes in different sports. Methods Free style gymnastic exercise (FSGE) and coordination ball dribbling exercise (CBDE) were used to see whether the execution quality of these tests is related to the quality of athletes from team handball, water polo, kayak, rhythmica...

Abstract Objectives To evaluate the effect of nutrition education on Chinese elite male young soccer players through the knowledge, attitude, behavior (KAP) survey and an adjusted dietary balance index (DBI). Methods 30 Chinese elite male young soccer players were randomly divided into two groups: lecture group (N=15, Age: 16.7±1.8 years, Height: 173.9±9.0 cm; Weight: 62.4±13.0 kg; Training years: 5.6±2.7 years) and non-lecture group (N=15, Age: 16.8±1.7 years, Height: 175.5±7.9cm; Weight: 62.5±...
Abstract This study aimed to explore differences in rates of achieving the weekly physical activity (PA) recommendation between adolescents who preferred fitness PA and those who did not. Furthermore, we investigated the types of PA practiced by adolescents. In total, 9513 participants from the Czech Republic and Poland, aged 15–18 years took part in the study between 2009 and 2016. Out of this source sample, 4977 self-reported their weekly PA using the IPAQ-Long Form, and 1348 objectively monit...

Abstract Sport university students are a unique population because they usually have a strong sport background since early childhood. In this study, we aimed to examine secular trends in grip strength of male, first-year sport university students in comparison with the general population between 1973 and 2016. Existing data on the grip strength of 6,308 sport university students aged 18 years were examined. The data were obtained from the [Blinded for review] Fitness Plus Study, a study of the D...

Abstract Background/objective The integration of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and circuit weight training (CWT) is seamless and practical for meeting recommended exercise guidelines. The purpose of this study was to determine the ideal combination of HIIT and CWT to elicit desired acute cardiorespiratory and metabolic responses in variables such as energy expenditure (EE), oxygen consumption (VO2), heart rate (HR), blood lactate (BLa−), excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), ...

Abstract Background Aerobic training has been used as one of the common treatments for type 2 diabetes; however, further research on the individualized exercise program with the optimal intensity is still necessary. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of supervised exercise training at the maximal fat oxidation (FATmax) intensity on body composition, glycemic control, lipid profile, and physical capacity in older people with type 2 diabetes. Methods Twenty-four women and 25 ...

Abstract Background/Objective Isomaltulose is a disaccharide with a low glycaemic index and plays a role in maintaining postprandial glucose. The maintenance of glucose availability during prolonged exercise has been shown to enhance exercise performance. The present study compared the effects of pre-exercise isomaltulose versus maltodextrin ingestion on gastric parameters and cycling performance in young men. Methods Fourteen young men (mean ± S.D., age 23 ± 2 years) performed 60 min of continu...

Abstract Background Velocity lactate threshold (VLT) is commonly used as a standard for exercise intensity, although previous studies of VLT have focused mostly on well-trained athletes. Heart rate (HR) is an important physiological index which is easy to measure, the heart rate-workload relationship curve is the reported coincidence with lactate threshold (LT). This study aimed to develop valid, simple and economical velocity at lactate threshold prediction methods for general Chinese adults. M...
