New paper in Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism

The paper entitled “Estimating peak oxygen uptake based on postexercise measurements in swimming“, authored by Diego Chaverri, Thorsten Schuller, Xavier Iglesias, Uwe Hoffmann, and Ferran A. Rodríguez has been published in Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism (JCR IF: 2.339). The article will be part of the PhD thesis of Diego Chaverri.

The study assessed the validity of postexercise measurements in estimating VO2peak in swimming. The authors compared VO2 measurements during supramaximal exercise with various commonly adopted methods: 1) first 20-s average; 2) linear and semilogarithmic backward extrapolation at different time intervals; and 3) a recently developed HR- VO2 modelling procedure. The results confirmed that the new modelling procedure based on postexercise VO2 and HR measurements is a valid and accurate procedure for estimating VO2peak in swimmers and avoids the estimation bias produced by other methods.

This project was carried out in collaboration with the Institut für Physiologie und Anatomie, Deutsche Sporthochschule Köln, Germany.

Journal of strength

The paper entitled “Maximal aerobic frequency of ball hitting (MAF): A new training load parameter in tennis”, authored by Ernest Baiget, Xavier Iglesias and Ferran A. Rodríguez has been accepted for publication at SCR (IF 2.075). The paper evaluates a new training load parameter in tennis based on the ball-hitting frequency at VO2max (MAF) and assesses the accuracy of a specific endurance tennis test (SET-Test) for predicting MAF in 35 male competitive tennis players.

Congratulations to all!

Nou article publicat sobre anàlisi d’elements tàctics del bàsquet

S’ha publicat un nou article del nostre grup en el número monogràfic “anàlisi de dades en estudis observacionals de Ciències de l’Esport. Aportacions des Mixed Methods” de la revista Cuadernos de Psicología del Deporte a càrrec de Hermilo A. Nunes, Xavier Iglesias, Gabriel Daza, Alfredo Irurtia, Toni Caparrós i  Maria Teresa Anguera, amb el títol  “Influencia del pick and roll en el juego de ataque en baloncesto de alto nivel“. En l’estudi s’analitzen els 18 equips de la lliga ACB de bàsquet de la temporada 2010-2011 en 17 partits de la primera fase de la lliga. En tots els partits hi va participar un mateix equip (Club Bàsquet Màlaga SAD) davant 17 rivals diferents.

Enhorabona !!!
