The effectiveness of a high-intensity games intervention on improving indices of health in young children
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a short-term, high-intensity games intervention may elicit positive changes in physiological and anthropometric indices of health in normal weight and obese children.
The perceptual response to exercise of progressively increasing intensity in children aged 7-8 years: validation of a pictorial curvilinear ratings of perceived exertion scale.
TLDR
The Eston-Parfitt (E-P) curvilinear Ratings of Perceived Exertion (RPE) Scale and a novel marble quantity task were assessed to provide estimates of perceived exertion during cycle ergometry and confirmed the robustness of the E-P Scale.
The efficacy of a self-paced VO2max test during motorized treadmill exercise.
TLDR
The current study has shown that the SPV is an accurate measure ofVO2max during exercise on a motorized treadmill and may provide a slightly higher VO2max value than that obtained from a traditional GXT.
Effect of an acute dose of omega-3 fish oil following exercise-induced muscle damage
TLDR
This study indicates that an acute dose of high-EPA fish oil may ameliorate the functional changes following EIMD, and large effect sizes demonstrate a possibleAmeliorating effect of high dose of EPA fish supplementation.
Prediction of maximal oxygen uptake in sedentary males from a perceptually regulated, sub-maximal graded exercise test
TLDR
Results suggest that a sub-maximal, perceptually guided graded exercise test provides acceptable estimates of [Vdot]O2max in young to middle-aged sedentary males.
Effects of continuous and intermittent exercise on executive function in children aged 8-10 years.
TLDR
An acute bout of exercise, of either an intermittent or continuous nature, improves executive function in children, and effects are maintained for ≤ 30 min following exercise cessation, and it is recommended that children should engage in physical activity during periods of school recess.
A perceptually regulated, graded exercise test predicts peak oxygen uptake during treadmill exercise in active and sedentary participants
TLDR
A single treadmill-based PRET using RPE 9–15 range extrapolated to RPE 19 is a valid means of predicting peak oxygen uptake in young and middle to older-aged individuals of varying activity and fitness levels.
Pacing strategies of inexperienced children during repeated 800 m individual time-trials and simulated competition.
TLDR
Findings dispute the notion that an optimal pacing strategy is learned with exercise experience or training, both individually and within a competitive environment.
The influence of a six-week, high-intensity games intervention on the pulmonary oxygen uptake kinetics in prepubertal obese and normal-weight children.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a 6-week, high-intensity, games-orientated intervention can have a significant positive impact on the dynamic oxygen uptake response of obese prepubertal children.
