En el rendimiento deportivo, la medición de la potencia ha sido un tema de mucho interés a lo largo de los años. Una de las pruebas prácticas más utilizadas es la prueba de Bosco que, sin embargo, mide la potencia en forma ...
Evaluation of four vertical jump tests: methodology, reliability, validity, and accuracy (postprint)
Vertical jump performance tests can give considerably different results, even when different methods are used to analyze a single jump trial. To evaluate and compare four different methods commonly used to measure vertical ...
Validity and reliability of the Nintendo Wii Balance Board to assess standing balance and sensory integration in highly functional older adults
Standing balance is an important motor task to perform daily life activities. Postural instability associated with age typically rises from a deterioration or failure of peripheral sensory systems. The modified Clinical ...

Palatability and Voluntary Intake of Three Commercially Available Sports Drinks and Unflavored Water during Prolonged Exercise in Hot and Humid Conditions
(Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise: 39(5), p S315, 2007-05)
PURPOSE: This study compared the palatability and voluntary intake of beverages that have different sensory characteristics, between male and female athletes while running or racewalking in a tropical climate. METHODS: ...
Post-exercise Rehydration: Potassium-rich Drinks vs. Water and a Sports Drink
Rehidratación post-ejercicio: bebidas con alto contenido de potasio vs. agua y una bebida deportiva
Fluid retention, thirst quenching, tolerance, and palatability of different drinks were assessed. On four different days, 12 healthy, physically active volunteers (24.4 ± 3.2 years old, 74.75 ± 11.36 kg body mass (mean ± ...
Thirst sensitivity to post-exercise fluid replacement needs and controlled drinking
Purpose: Thirst was evaluated as a dependent variable, to see if perceived thirst (TP) can clearly distinguish among several levels of acute dehydration, and if so, how it responds over time to the ingestion of a predetermined ...
Incomplete warm-climate post-exercise rehydration with water, coconut water, or a sports drink
(Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, 32(5s), 238., 2011-10-01)
It is common to find mild to serious dehydration during exercise in hot, humid conditions. To restore euhydration, the literature shows that a fluid volume larger than sweat loss should be ingested post-exercise; ingestion ...
Evaluation of Four Vertical Jump Tests: Methodology, Reliability, Validity, and Accuracy
Vertical jump performance tests can give considerably different results, even when different methods are used to analyze the same jump trial from the same subject. To evaluate and compare 4 different methods commonly ...
