Acute effects of static stretching or whole body vibration on peak torque and peak power of collegiate athletes
Conclusion To conclude, these results may not be satisfactory to provide ultimate findings in solving the disagreement between the studies. In future studies, effects of static stretching and vibration on chosen physiological parameters should be investigated in different levels of athletes with different arrangements of frequency, duration and volume of vibration application combined with static stretching.

Réponses physiologiques à l’exercice en altitude modérée : intérêt de la mesure de la SpO2
Conclusion Cette étude a souligné l’importance de mesurer la SpO2 lors des tests d’effort en plaine pour les athlètes voulant performer en altitude. En effet, les athlètes présentant une diminution de SpO2 en plaine ont une plus grande diminution de V ˙ O 2 max et de FCmax en altitude modérée. Pour tous les athlètes, les FC et les puissances des SV doivent être adaptées en altitude modérée aiguë.

The effect of concurrent training order on hormonal responses and body composition in obese men
Conclusion It can be concluded that concurrent resistance and endurance training aimed at weight loss by reducing body fat in obese subjects can be a good strategy, although the both CRE and CER order were effective in positive transformation of serum leptin, testosterone, cortisol concentration and body composition. However, concurrent resistance-endurance (CRE) training may have better efficacy. (Source: Science and Sports)

Association of low weekly physical activity and sedentary lifestyle with self-perceived health, pain, and well-being in a Spanish teenage population
Conclusion Low weekly PA leads to reduced self-perceived health in teenagers. It also increases the risk of pain and decreases the well-being of teenage boys. The effects of a highly sedentary lifestyle may differ according to gender and type of sedentary activity (TV, PC, or homework). These differences suggest the need of specific approaches to PA and sedentary lifestyle levels according to gender. (Source: Science and Sports)

However, it questions both the motivation hypothesis and the self-fulfilling prophecy hypothesis, associated with selection to a youth national team. Because of the high degree of exchange of players in the period, the advantages of early selection could be smaller than earlier expected in a talent development perspective.

Analysis of cervical and shoulder neuromuscular activity during adapted swimming with and without a snorkel: Implications for rehabilitation
Conclusion Using a snorkel during adapted swimming produces changes in the level of muscle activation in the shoulder and neck. An increase in infraspinatus and a decrease in cervical erector spinae activity due to reduced head movement and an absence of significant cervical rotation when using a snorkel may lead to increased resistance and work for the shoulder. Finally, the metacentric effect on the arm decreases because the arm does not come out of the water. (Source: Science and Sports)
