Summary of "Deception Improves TT Performance in Well-trained Cyclists without Augmented Fatigue."

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.

The impact of environmental temperature deception on perceived exertion during fixed-intensity exercise in the heat in trained-cyclists.

This study examined the effect of environmental temperature deception on the rating of perceived exertion (RPE) during 30 min of fixed-intensity cycling in the heat.

Eccentric cycling does not improve cycling performance in amateur cyclists.

Eccentric cycling training induces muscle hypertrophy and increases joint power output in non-athletes. Moreover, eccentric cycling can be considered a movement-specific type of strength training for ...

Declines in exercise performance are prevented 24 hours after post-exercise ischemic conditioning in amateur cyclists.

Brief moments of blood flow occlusion followed by reperfusion may promote enhancements in exercise performance. Thus, this study assessed the 24-h effect of post-exercise ischemic conditioning (PEIC) ...

Deception of cycling distance on pacing strategies, perceptual responses, and neural activity.

Pacing during exercise performance is well-established; however, little is known about the neural responses associated with changes in power output and the effect of exercise end-point knowledge. Ther...

Adding vibration to high-intensity intervals increase time at high oxygen uptake in well-trained cyclists.

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 Effects of a Train High, Sleep Low Strategy

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...

Potato Ingestion and Time-trial Performance

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...

Effect of Augmented Reality Books on Cortisol Levels in Hospitalized Pediatric Patients

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...

Dose Reponse Oxidation of a Sweet-corn Derived Sugar (PhytoSpherix) During Exercise in Endurance Trained Athletes

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...

Behavior of Cyclists in Response to Pain

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).
