Enhanced inhibitory control during reengagement processing in badminton athletes:An event-related potential study
ConclusionsModeration of brain cortical activity in badminton athletes was more associated with their ability to rapidly inhibit a planned movement and reengage with a new movement compared to non-athletes. The superior inhibitory control and more efficient neural mechanisms in badminton athletes compared to non-athletes might be a result of badminton athletes’ professional training experience.Graphical abstract (Source: Journal of Sport and Health Science)

Effects of obesity on breast size, thoracic spine structure and function, upper torso musculoskeletal pain and physical activity in women
ConclusionThis study is the first to demonstrate that increased obesity levels were associated with compromised kyphosis and loading of the thoracic spine, as well as increased symptoms of upper torso musculoskeletal pain and reduced time spent in physical activity in women living in the community. We recommend further research to determine whether evidence-based interventions designed to reduce the flexion torque generated on the thoracic spine can improve these symptoms of upper torso musculoskeletal pain and the ability of women with obesity to participate in physical activity.

Gut Microbiota and Obesity: Impact of Antibiotics and Prebiotics and Potential for Musculoskeletal Health
Publication date: Available online 3 May 2019Source: Journal of Sport and Health ScienceAuthor(s): Teja Klancic, Raylene A. ReimerAbstractObesity is a complex disease with multiple contributing factors. One of the most intensely studied factors during the past decade has been the gut microbiota, which is the community of all microbes in the intestinal tract. The gut microbiota, via energy extraction, inflammation and other actions, is now recognized as an important player in the pathogenesis of obesity. Dysbiosis, or an imbalance in the microbial community, can initiate a cascade of metabolic disturbances in the host. Earl...

Associations of physical activity, sedentary time and physical fitness with mental health during pregnancy: The GESTAFIT Project
ConclusionAn active lifestyle characterized by higher levels of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity and lower levels of sedentary time during pregnancy might modestly improve the mental health of pregnant women. Although previous research has focused on the benefits of cardiorespiratory exercise, the present study shows that only upper-body flexibility is related to emotional regulation in early pregnant women. If the present findings are corroborated in further experimental research, physical exercise programs should focus on enhancing flexibility in order to promote improvements in emotional regulation during early se...

Relationship between abdominal adiposity, cardiovascular fitness, and biomarkers of cardiovascular risk in British adolescents
ConclusionThere is a relationship between measures of adolescent adiposity and parental weight that involves factors other than cardiovascular fitness. Adolescent boys have relatively more abdominal fat than girls and a tendency to have a proinflammatory profile of biomarkers. These observations suggest that family and social environmental interventions are best undertaken earlier in childhood, particularly among boys. (Source: Journal of Sport and Health Science)
