Effect of exercise on phase angle in cancer patients: a systematic review
CONCLUSIONS: There were several exercise details that may have potential to be beneficial for PhA in cancer patients, including an early start of the exercise intervention (during treatment and immediately after discharge from hospital), the use of resistance exercise or/and aerobic exercise, and mainly a long follow-up period (≥ 4 months) to verify the structural effects of exercise on the PhA. However, there were no effects on the PhA value immediately after the intervention, regardless of the type of protocol and the intervention time.PMID:34821490 | DOI:10.23736/S0022-4707.21.12727-6 (Source: Journal of Sports Medic...

Tai chi effects on balance in older adults: the role of sustained attention and myokines
J Sports Med Phys Fitness. 2021 Nov 25. doi: 10.23736/S0022-4707.21.12990-1.

Exercise physical, fitness and Parkinson's disease: an 8-year follow-up study
CONCLUSIONS: After an 8-year follow-up, no significant changes in FC parameters affected by the progression of a neurodegenerative disease such as Parkinson's disease have been identified. The 8-foot up and go test has shown correlations with the other physical tests used.PMID:34758005 | DOI:10.23736/S0022-4707.21.12483-1 (Source: Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness)

Can small-sided games assess the training-induced aerobic adaptations in elite football players?
J Sports Med Phys Fitness. 2021 Nov 10. doi: 10.23736/S0022-4707.21.13144-5. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: To investigate whether or not SSGs could be used to evaluate the aerobic fitness status and the longitudinal training-induced adaptations in football players. Additionally, the capacity of SSGs to recreate the official match demands was investigated.METHODS: Twenty-five elite football players were monitored. Total distance (TD), high-speed running, very high-speed running, sprint and accelerations plus decelerations distance were measured during 20 SSGs formats and 25 official-matches; in SSGs, average hea...

Mid-term impact of mild-moderate COVID-19 on cardiorespiratory fitness in élite athletes
J Sports Med Phys Fitness. 2021 Nov 10. doi: 10.23736/S0022-4707.21.13226-8. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Mid- and long-term sequelae of COVID-19 on cardiorespiratory fitness are unknown. Aim of the study was to assess the mid-term impact of mild-moderate COVID-19 on cardiorespiratory fitness evaluated by cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) in élite athletes.METHODS: 13 elite cross-country skiers with previous mild-moderate COVID-19 symptoms underwent CPET before resuming seasonal training (COVID athletes). 13 élite detrained cross-country skiers, matched for principal confounding factors, we...
