This study was undertaken to compare training-induced changes in selected physiological, body composition and performance variables following two training periodization models: traditional (TP) versus block periodization (BP). Ten world-class kayakers were assessed four times during a training cycle over two consecutive seasons. On each occasion, subjects completed an incremental test to exhaustion on the kayak ergometer to determine peak oxygen uptake (VO2peak), VO2 at second ventilatory… Expand
Strength prior to endurance intra-session exercise sequence optimizes neuromuscular and cardiovascular gains in elderly men
TLDR
The intra-session exercise sequence had no influence in the maximal endurance power adaptations to concurrent training, but had influence inThe magnitude of the muscle quality enhancements. Expand
Comparison of Training Monitoring and Prescription Methods in Sprint Kayaking.
TLDR
The stochastic nature of PO during on-water training may explain the discrepancies between prescribed and actual time quantified for power across these zones and for optimized prescription and monitoring of athlete training loads. Expand
Comparison of Treadmill and Kayak Ergometer Protocols for Evaluating Peak Oxygen Consumption
The main goal for training in sport is to elicit the adequate physical loads to induce the desired adaptations. To achieve this goal it is necessary to continuously assess the alterations induced byExpand
Heart rate and stroke rate misrepresent supramaximal sprint kayak training as quantified by power
TLDR
Heart rate measures were unable to differentiate training demands across different high-intensity sessions, and could therefore misrepresent the training load in such instances, whereas PO may be more suitable. Expand
The Relationship Between Lactate and Ventilatory Thresholds in Runners: Validity and Reliability of Exercise Test Performance Parameters
TLDR
Lactate threshold tests can be a valid and reliable alternative to VT and MLSS to identify the workloads at the transition from aerobic to anaerobic metabolism in well-trained runners. Expand
Block periodization of high‐intensity aerobic intervals provides superior training effects in trained cyclists
TLDR
It is suggested that block periodization of training provides superior adaptations to traditional organization during a 4‐week endurance training period, despite similar training volume and intensity. Expand
A New Short Track Test to Estimate the VO2max and Maximal Aerobic Speed in Well-Trained Runners
TLDR
The current Track(1:1) test emerges as a better alternative than the UMTT to estimate maximal running performance parameters in well-trained and highly trained athletes on the field. Expand
Effects of 12 weeks of block periodization on performance and performance indices in well‐trained cyclists
TLDR
The present study suggests that BP of endurance training has superior effects on several endurance and performance indices compared with TRAD. Expand
The Effectiveness of a 30-Week Concurrent Strength and Endurance Training Program in Preparation for an Ultra-Endurance Handcycling Challenge: A Case Study.
TLDR
Findings demonstrate how a long-term concurrent strength and endurance training program can be used to optimize handcycling performance capabilities in preparation for an ultra-endurance cycling event. Expand
Discrepancy between Exercise Performance, Body Composition, and Sex Steroid Response after a Six-Week Detraining Period in Professional Soccer Players
TLDR
The results suggest that the six-week off-season detraining period resulted in a rapid loss of exercise performance adaptations and optimal body composition status, but did not affect sex steroid resting levels. Expand

Endurance and neuromuscular changes in world-class level kayakers during a periodized training cycle
TLDR
A 12-week periodized strength and endurance program with special emphasis on prioritizing the sequential development of specific physical fitness components in each training phase seems effective for improving both cardiovascular and neuromuscular markers of highly trained top-level athletes. Expand
Physiological effects of tapering and detraining in world-class kayakers.
TLDR
The need of performing a minimal maintenance program to avoid excessive declines in neuromuscular function in cases where a prolonged break from training is required is suggested. Expand
Effects of different stepwise reduction taper protocols on cycling performance.
TLDR
Results showed that a moderate (50%) reduction in weekly training volume appeared to be optimal in terms of enhancing performance, confirming the contention that proper placement of training volume during tapering, while maintaining exercise intensity, can elicit performance improvements. Expand
The efficacy of ergometry determined heart rates for flatwater kayak training.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the prescription of HR-LT(1) elicits similar blood lactate concentrations during kayak ergometer and open water kayak training in both single and team boats. Expand
Reduced training duration effects on aerobic power, endurance, and cardiac growth.
TLDR
Initial evidence is provided that all aspects of the endurance-trained state may not be regulated uniformly in reduced training, particularly since VO2 max and short-term endurance were maintained, but long-term Endurance decreased in the 13-min group. Expand
Time course of loss of adaptations after stopping prolonged intense endurance training.
TLDR
Muscle capillarization and oxidative enzyme activity remained above sedentary levels and this may help explain why a-vO2 difference and VO2 max after 84 days of detraining were still higher than in untrained subjects. Expand
The influence of pacing strategy on VO2 and supramaximal kayak performance.
TLDR
It is indicated that 2-min kayak ergometer performance is significantly greater following an all-out start strategy when compared with an even-paced strategy, and the improved performance appears to be attributable to faster VO2 kinetics, without a significant change in the total AOD. Expand
Detraining: Loss of Training-Induced Physiological and Performance Adaptations. Part I
TLDR
Hormonal changes include a reduced insulin sensitivity, a possible increase in testosterone and growth hormone levels in strength athletes, and a reversal of short term training-induced adaptations in fluid-electrolyte regulating hormones. Expand
Physiological investigations of Swedish elite canoe competitors.
TLDR
Data indicated that canoeists, who were successful in 500 m races, had a higher percentage of fast twitch (FT) muscle fibers than medalist, who competed in 10,000 m races (26-52% FT). Expand

TLDR
Success in flat-water kayak racing to require great upper-body muscle strength, anaerobic capacity and endurance in addition to high aerobic power is suggested. Expand
