AIM The aim of this study was to describe and evaluate physiological parameters as a control tool for the monitoring of training in a group of elite cyclists during one season of training. METHODS The study is divided into two periods (winter or ''volume'' mesocycle and spring or ''intensity'' mesocycle) between the tests that they carried out in the(More)
BACKGROUND At present, scientific consensus exists on the multifactorial etiopatogenia of obesity. Both professionals and researchers agree that treatment must also have a multifactorial approach, including diet, physical activity, pharmacology and/or surgical treatment. These two last ones should be reserved for those cases of morbid obesities or in case(More)
Iron deficiency among endurance athletes is of major concern for coaches, physicians, and nutritionists. Recently, it has been observed that hepcidin, the master regulator of iron metabolism, was upregulated after exercise and was found to be related to interleukin-6 (IL-6) elevation. In this study performed on noniron deficient and well-trained runners, we(More)
This study investigated the changes in cardiorespiratory response and running performance of 9 male "Talent Identification" (TID) and 6 male Senior Elite (SE) Spanish National Squad triathletes during a specific cycle-run (C-R) test. The TID and SE triathletes (initial age 15.2 ± 0.7 vs. 23.8 ± 5.6 years, p = 0.03; V(O2)max 77.0 ± 5.6 vs. 77.8 ± 3.6 ml ·(More)
BACKGROUND The main concern of the people who follow a weight loss program is the body weight loss, independently of the body composition. The aim of this study was to create a mathematical model able to discriminate the body weight change based on initial body composition variables. METHODS The study included 239 overweight and obese participants (18-50(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether the 6-minute walk test (6MWT) is a predictor of peak oxygen uptake ((Equation is included in full-text article.)O2) in patients with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (IPAH). METHODS A total of 157 patients treated for IPAH completed a 6MWT in accordance with American Thoracic Society standards. Heart rate, pulse(More)
AIM To analyze the evolution of respiratory pattern variables (some of which are representative of central respiratory regulation) in a group of highly trained cyclists through a training season. MATERIAL AND METHODS Ten elite cyclists performed three maximal effort tests on a cicloergometer at November (preparatory period), February (precompetitive(More)
