AbstractPhysiological responses and performance were examined during and after a simulated trampoline competition (STC). Fifteen elite trampoline gymnasts participated, of which eight completed two routines (EX1 and EX2) and a competition final (EX3). Trampoline-specific activities were quantified by video-analysis. Countermovement jump (CMJ) and 20 maximal trampoline jump (20-MTJ) performances were assessed. Heart rate (HR) and quadriceps muscle temperature (Tm) were recorded and venous blood was drawn. A total of 252 ± 16 jumps were performed during the STC. CMJ performance declined (P < 0.05) by 3.8, 5.2 and 4.2% after EX1, EX2 and EX3, respectively, and was 4.8% lower (P < 0.05) than baseline 24 h post-competition. 20-MTJ flight time was ~1% shorter (P < 0.05) for jump 1–10 after EX2 and 24 h post STC. Tm increased (P < 0.05) to ~39°C after the warm-up, but declined (P < 0.05) 1.0 and 0.6oC before EX2 and EX3, respectively. Peak HR was 95–97% HRmax during EX1-3. Peak blood lactate, plasma K+ and NH3 w...

This study examined the effect of environmental heat stress on repeated jump performance after elite competitive soccer games. Male elite soccer players (n = 19) from 2 Scandinavian teams participated (age: 26.7 ± 1.0 years, height: 181.7 ± 1.1 cm, body mass: 75.8 ± 1.0 kg). The players had a Yo-Yo IR2 performance of 1,032 ± 42 m (range: 920�1,400 m). The players took part in the Champions League Qualification, where 6 games (3 home and 3 away) were played. The home games took place at an averag...

J Strength Cond Res 26(12): 3365–3375, 2012—This study aimed to analyze elite team handball physical and physiological demands during match play. Time-motion (N = 30) and heart rate (HR; N = 60) analyses were performed throughout 10 official matches. The defined locomotor categories were standing still, walking, jogging, fast running, sprinting, backwar...

The aim of this study was to monitor the changes in indirect markers of muscle damage during 3 weeks (9 training sessions) of stretch-shortening (drop jump) exercise with constant load alternated with steep increases in load. Physically active men (n = 9, mean age 19.1 years) performed a program involving a rapid stepwise increase in the number of jumps, drop height, and squat depth, and the addition of weight. Concentric, isometric maximal voluntary contraction (MVC), and stimulated knee extens...

ABSTRACT The aims of the study were 1) to evaluate whether a multifaceted simulated soccer game protocol, entitled the Copenhagen Soccer Test (CST), elicited a similar physiological loading as a competitive game (CG) and 2) to determine muscle metabolites, blood variables, and sprint performance in various phases of CST. Twelve Danish Second- and Third-Division soccer players participated in the study. On separate days, HR measurements, frequent blood sampling, and physical/technical tests were ...

Purpose To examine the impact of hot ambient conditions on physical performance and physiological responses during football match-play. Methods Two experimental games were completed in temperate (∼21°C; CON) and hot ambient conditions (∼43°C; HOT). Physical performance was assessed by match analysis in 17 male elite players during the games and a repeated sprint test was conducted after the two game trials. Core and muscle temperature were measured and blood samples were obtained, before and aft...

The effects of exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD) on the physiological, metabolic and perceptual responses during upper body arm cranking exercise are unknown. Nine physically active male participants performed 6 min of arm cranking exercise at ventilatory threshold (VT), followed by a time to exhaustion (TTE) trial at a workload corresponding to 80 % of the difference between VT and \( \dot V{\text{O}}_ {2{\rm peak}} \) 48 h after bench pressing exercise (10 × 6 repetitions at 70 % one repet...

In sports, like team handball, fatigue has been associated with an increased risk of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. While effects of fatigue on muscle function are commonly assessed during maximal isometric voluntary contraction (MVC), such measurements may not relate to the muscle function during match play. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of muscle fatigue induced by a simulated handball match on neuromuscular strategy during a functional sidecutting movement,...

Video analysis has become a useful tool in the preparation for sport performance and its use has highlighted the diff erent physiological demands of seemingly similar sports and play- ing positions. The aim of the current study was to examine the performance diff erences between classical ballet and contemporary dance. In total 93 dance performances (48 ballet and 45 con- temporary) were analysed for exercise inten- sity, changes in direction and specifi c discrete skills (e. g., jumps, lifts). ...

The effect of oral caffeine ingestion on intense intermittent exercise performance and muscle interstitial ion concentrations was examined. The study consists of two studies (S1 and S2). In S1, 12 subjects completed the Yo-Yo intermittent recovery level 2 (Yo-Yo IR2) test with prior caffeine (6 mg/kg body wt; CAF) or placebo (PLA) intake. In S2, 6 subjects performed one low-intensity (20 W) and three intense (50 W) 3-min (separated by 5 min) one-legged knee-extension exercise bouts with (CAF) an...

Tkachev on uneven bars is a release and re-grasp skill performed using variations of preparatory longswing techniques; the reasons why different techniques are chosen remains unclear. This study examined kinematic and key release parameters specific to three distinct techniques with the aim of understanding the relative benefits of each. During two international artistic gymnastics competitions six arch, straddle and pike longswings preceding the straddle Tkachev were recorded using twin video c...

AbstractThe purpose of this study was to describe the mechanical characteristics of a trampoline circus act and its individual tracks performed in training and shows using a tri-axial accelerometer. A track is an artist’s specific role within a choreographed act. Seven male acrobats performed their trampoline act during training and shows while wearing a triaxial accelerometer and reported ratings of perceived exertion (RPE) after each trial. Average acceleration (AVG), root mean square (RMS), r...

Abstract Background Trampolining is a form of gymnastics that has increased in popularity over the last decade and due to its concurrence with the formative years of bone development, it may have an important impact on bone health. However, bone density, microarchitecture, and bone strength of competitive trampolinists have not been explored. Therefore, the purpose of this cross-sectional study was to investigate the relationship between trampolining participation and (1) bone density, area, and...

Abstract This work aims to create a mathematical model by using kinematical equations that can describe the landing-jump of a trampoline performance. In this model, the trampolinist was assumed to be a combination of two parts of masses. The landing process (from the time trampolinist touches the net to the deepest location) was discretized into two stages. During these two stages, the trampolinist exerts different internal forces. Analyzing the kinematics of the abovementioned two stages, we ob...

The aim of this study was to examine the effect of mini-trampoline training on VO2max, body weight, fat % and vertical jumping height. The participants were randomly separated into 2 groups as the trampoline group (n:6, age 21.8±2.04 years, height 174±5.78 cm, weight 71.73±4.58 kg) and the running group (n:6, age 20.7±1.51 years, height 179±7.18 cm, weight 72.68±9.5 kg). All the participants completed 8 weeks of trampoline and running training. The trampoline training was prepared with standard ...
