Exercise Induced Changes in the Appearance of Circulating Microvesicles

Amit Bandyopadhyay and Nabanita Ghosh

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: 2024/02/05

Extracellular vesicles (EV) are small membrane bound vesicles which are capable of delivering biomolecules to neighbouring recipient cells or more distant cells, where they induce various signalling cascades and subsequently alter their metabolism. These EVs may include apoptotic bodies, microvesicles, and exosomes, which have emerged as important mediators of cell to cell communication in normal physiology and pathological status. ...

Ronan Kavanagh, Kevin McDaid, David Rhodes, Mark Connor, Rafael Oliveira, Ian Varley and Ryland Morgans

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: 2023/12/08

Seventeen male professional outfield football players completed a laboratory based incremental treadmill test to establish vVO2max and a field based 1200m shuttle test to estimate velocity at MAS. During the pre-season period a linear speed phase consisting of twice weekly PS exposures were conducted and each player’s PS reached during this period was established. Body composition was measured using DEXA....

Impact of the Prophylactic Brace on Knee Kinematics and Stability in Dynamic Situations

Romain Julien, Arfaoui A and William Bertucci

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: 2023/12/07

Prophylactic braces are commonly utilized protective devices in sports to reduce the risk of knee injuries. Despite their widespread use, there exists a divergence of opinions regarding their effectiveness. Several studies have investigated the efficacy of prophylactic brace in athletes, revealing enhancements in biomechanical factors linked to the risk of anterior cruciate ligament injuries, such as knee range of motion, flexion angles, or angular velocity....

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: 2023/10/14

A cross-sectional, quantitative study was conducted with 286 mothers of preschool children aged 2-6 years. Data were collected via a Google Forms questionnaire, distributed through WhatsApp groups and social networks, following a Snowball sampling model. The questionnaire addressed socioeconomic data, daily physical activity (PA), and sedentary behavior (SB), particularly screen time (ST). Statistical analysis was conducted using STATA SE with the t-test for the means of two samples with equal v...

Injury Incidence and Burden in 979 Player Seasons of an Elite Dutch Soccer Academy

Danny Holtus, BSc, Johannes L Tol, MD, PhD, Bastiaan Bruning, PT, Lotte Jagtman, MSc, Vosse de Boode, PT, MSc and Gustaaf Reurink, MD, PhD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: 2023/04/05

The epidemiology of injuries in youth soccer is ambiguous. Most studies are based on the consensus statement of Fuller, et al. where pediatric-specific injuries are not included. As a result, this type of injury is often neglected or categorized inconsistently. A consequence may be adhering an incorrect focus in injury prevention. This study aimed to describe injury incidence, severity and burden by age group in an elite soccer academy....

HIIT vs. MICT to Improve Cardiorespiratory Fitness and Exercise Capacity in Older Adult

Yang Yang, Cao Youxiang, Chen Jiacheng, Hu Guangxuan, Chang Bo and Yi Xuejie

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: 2023/07/19

Previous studies have shown that High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is effective in improving maximal oxygen uptake, blood pressure, and physical health-related indicators in older adults. However, whether HIIT is more effective in improving cardiorespiratory fitness and exercise capacity in older adults compared with Moderate-Intensity Continuous Exercise (MICT) remains controversial. ...
