The aim of this study was to assess the exercise intensity during a ski marathon race by monitoring the heart rate (HR) of a well-trained male amateur skier taking part in La Sgambeda 2012 (42 km long). The race consisted of a preliminary short lap of 3.5 km and two almost identical laps of 19 and 19.5 km, respectively. The subject’s resting and maximal(More)
Facial asymmetry is considered a marker of psychological, emotional and physiological distress, while anxiety is a behavioural, psychological and physiological response to a threat to well-being. Since individuals respond to anxiety with specific patterns (e.g., muscular tension), it is reasonable to hypothesize that anxiety could contribute to facial(More)
General physical practice and multidimensional exercises are essential elements that allow young athletes to enhance their coordinative traits, balance, and strength and power levels, which are linked to the learning soccer-specific skills. Jumping rope is a widely-used and non-specific practical method for the development of athletic conditioning, balance(More)
[Purpose] This study determined the effects a new modality of core stabilization exercises based on diaphragmatic breathing on pulmonary function, abdominal fitness, and movement efficiency. [Subjects] Thirty-two physically active, healthy males were randomly assigned to an experimental group (n = 16) and a control group (n = 16). [Methods] The experimental(More)
Soccer is a team sport that requires prolonged, high-intensity, intermittent exercise and evidence from previous studies has shown that players experience fatigue toward the end of a match. Some preliminary observations indicate that goal scoring increases over time during the game; however, these preliminary results were obtained analysing minor soccer(More)
THERE IS AN INCREASING INTEREST IN DEVELOPING LOW-INTENSITY RESISTANCE TRAINING METHODS TO REDUCE BOTH THE MECHANICAL STRESS ON JOINTS IN INDIVIDUALS FROM DIFFERENT AGE GROUPS AND THE RISK OF INJURIES IN ATHLETES. BLOOD FLOW RESTRICTION RESISTANCE TRAINING (BFRRT) HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE AN EFFECTIVE METHOD FOR IMPROVING MUSCULAR FUNCTION, USING LOW AND(More)
