To investigate the effects of feedback, in the form of a virtual avatar paced at 100 and 102% of baseline performance, on neuromuscular fatigue following a 4 km cycling time trial (TT). We hypothesised that improved cycling performance would occur due to participants exceeding a previously established critical threshold, and experiencing greater neuromuscular fatigue.

This study purpose was to analyze the effect of EIMD in gross efficiency and in aerobic and anaerobic cycling performance. Nine well-trained cyclists (30.8 ± 6.4 years, cycling experience 8.4 ± 5.6 ...
The importance of accumulated time ≥90% of maximal oxygen consumption (VO ) to improve performance in well-trained endurance athletes is well established. The present study compared the acute effect...
The mean power output (MPO) from a 60-min time trial (TT) - also known as "functional threshold power" or "FTP" - is a standard measure of cycling performance; however, shorter performance tests are d...
The investigators will examine the long-term effects of a combined training and diet intervention that, acutely, increases fat oxidation during exercise. This is done with a 4 week interve...
This research study evaluates the feasibility and appropriateness of potatoes as an ergogenic aid in comparison to the currently promoted sports gels during a cycling challenge and time tr...
Hospitalization is a stressful event that might impact in a patient's recovery. Children are more susceptible to suffer acute stress as a result of a hospital stay. Stress is often quantiz...
PhytoSpherix (Phx) is an all-natural, edible polysaccharide extracted from sweet corn. This carbohydrate is the major muscle fuel for intense exercise and its stores are quite small such t...
A qualitative study, as a follow-up to an earlier study, that provides an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the injured cyclist's behavior related to seeking medical attenti...
Carrying out of specific physical routines or procedures by one who is trained or skilled in physical activity. Performance is influenced by a combination of physiological, psychological, and socio-cultural factors.
The act of deceiving or the fact (or condition) of being deceived.
Modulation of human voice to produce sounds augmented by musical tonality and rhythm.
Performance of an act one or more times, with a view to its fixation or improvement; any performance of an act or behavior that leads to learning.
Any situation where an animal or human is trained to respond differentially to two stimuli (e.g., approach and avoidance) under reward and punishment conditions and subsequently trained under reversed reward values (i.e., the approach which was previously rewarded is punished and vice versa).
