On the demise of the backlog and other reflections on the state of RQES.
The relationship between running economy and biomechanical variables in distance runners.
We analyzed the relationship between running economy (RE) and biomechanical parameters in a group running at the same relative intensity and same absolute velocity. Sixteen homogeneous male long-distance runners performed a test to determine RE at 4.4 m.s(-1), corresponding to 11.1% below velocity a...
Feedback about more accurate versus less accurate trials: differential effects on self-confidence and activation.
One purpose of the present study was to examine whether self-confidence or anxiety would be differentially affected byfeedback from more accurate rather than less accurate trials. The second purpose was to determine whether arousal variations (activation) would predict performance. O...
Do expert swimmers have expert technique? Comment on "Arm coordination and performance level in the 400-m front crawl" by Schnitzler, Seifer...
In a recent article by Schnitzler, Seifert, and Chollet (2011), they used an index of coordination (IdC) to quantify arm synchronization in swimming, which has become a practical standard to measure gaps (negative IdC) and overlaps (positive IdC) in arm propulsion. Their previous wor...
Differentiating experts' anticipatory skills in beach volleyball.
We examined how perceptual-motor expertise and watching experience contribute to anticipating the outcome of opponents' attacking actions in beach volleyball. To this end, we invited 8 expert beach volleyball players, 8 expert coaches, 8 expert referees, and 8 control participants with no beach voll...
The relationship among HRpeak, RERpeak, and VO2peak during treadmill testing in girls.
We cannot rule out participant effort....
A new time measurement method using a high-end global navigation satellite system to analyze alpine skiing.
Accurate time measurement is essential to temporal analysis in sport. This study aimed to (a) develop a new method for time computation from surveyed trajectories using a high-end global navigation satellite system (GNSS), (b) validate its precision by comparing GNSS with photocells,...
Using social cognitive theory to predict physical activity and fitness in underserved middle school children.
We evaluated social cognitive variables and perceptions of the school environment to predict PA and fitness in middle school children (N = 506, ages 10-14 years). Using multiple regression analyses we accounted for 12% of the variance in PA and 13-21% of the variance in fitness. The best predictors...
Changes in K-12 physical education programs from 2001 to 2006.
We investigated the changes in physical education programs from 2001 to 2006 based on an analysis of data reported in The Shape of the Nation Report: Status of Physical Education in the USA (National Association for Sport and Physical Education, 2006). Means and standard deviations for numeric varia...
Eight-Week Traditional Mat Pilates Training-Program Effects on Adult Fitness Characteristics
We investigated responses of adult, novice practitioners (n = 9) to an 8-week traditional mat Pilates program (P) that met 1 hr/day three times/week. Classes consisted primarily of beginner and intermediate level exercises. Compared to an active control group (C; n = 13) that showed no improvements,...
