The Development of Functional Overreaching Is Associated with a Faster Heart Rate Recovery in Endurance Athletes.
... can require athletes to compete in a series of events over several consecutive weeks or months, making it difficult for athletes to maintain optimal performance throughout the season. During these periods, it can be challenging to deliver training programs that meet the need to recover from competition to prevent f-OR whilst also allowing athletes to ... show that the decrease in HR at submaximal intensities and at exhaustion was the most discriminating response between fOR athletes and control athletes. Additionally, others have reported a decreased maximum HR in f-OR endurance athletes [6–8]. Le Meur et al.  recently extended this work to show that ‘chronotropic incompetence’ with f-OR was associated ... recovery period in f-OR athletes. Indeed, both Le Meur et al.  and Hedelin et al.  have both reported a progressive increase in the parasympathetic activity of resting HR in endurance athletes with f-OR. Further investigations involving autonomic blockades are required to test whether the faster HRR associated with f-OR in endurance athletes may be
Remote Monitoring of the Heart Condition of Athletes by Measuring the Cardiac Action Potential Propagation Time Using a Wireless Sensor Network
... ECG from a so called rhythm strip electrode set. Highly trained athletes show striking LV cavity enlargement, with end-diastolic dimensions ≥60 mm, similar in magnitude to that evident in pathological forms of dilated cardiomyopathy. Over the last several years, sudden deaths of trained athletes, usually associated with exercise, have become highly visible ... Conference  and the ESC may minimize risk and thereby reduce the number of sudden deaths in young athletes. Fig. 1 The typical ECG waveform and the parameters The use of wireless sensor networks for health care monitoring specifically for performing athletes is an important concern and is reported . A wireless ECG acquisition sub-system with warning ... Potential Propagation Time – as a very useful system for athletes under high performance.

Effects of intermittent training on anaerobic performance and MCT transporters in athletes.
... VO2peak enhanced after the training period in well-trained athletes. The present results are in accordance with a previous study where the authors evaluated a lower intensity hypoxic training of 105 min of cycling training at 60 to 70% of HR reserve a day during 10 consecutive days at 2500 m in eight triathletes . After the training protocol, VO2max was ... Perspective Scientists, coaches and athletes should have a better understanding of the role that hypoxia plays in training for anaerobic exercise or indeed training for such intermittent high intensity performance. No additional adaptations or anaerobic performance enhancement should be expected above that which athletes can accomplish at sea-level. Author ... ineffective.

T he Relationship between Perfectionism and Burnout in Junior - Elite Athletes
... been studied the research for the studying of effect of personality characteristics of athletes on athletes? ?? analysis of burnout exception Raedeke and Smith’s (2004) research. Perfectionism is one of personality characteristics that increase the risk of burnout in athletes (Lemyre et al, 2008). Perfectionism has been described as a personality disposition ... descriptive statistics, the study clarified that the relatively small number of athletes surveyed in this study had high level of burnout. However, the examination of the rate of variability in scores of dimensions of burnout among athletes showed that few junior-elite athletes have experienced debilitating symptoms of burnout. The result of this study ... was appeared as decrease performance of athletes. In against, lower decrease performance reported in athletes when high level of self-oriented perfectionism was combined with high level of goal-oriented self-centered. The issue that socially prescribed perfectionism is one of factors of burnout in junior-elite athletes by Hill et al. (2008) proved in
Psychological balance in high level athletes: gender-based differences and sport-specific patterns.
... psychological health of high level athletes. This study aimed to identify the principal psychological problems encountered within French high level athletes, and the variations in their prevalence based on sex and the sport practiced. Methods: Multivariate analyses were conducted on nationwide data obtained from the athletes? ?? yearly psychological evaluations. Results: ... dedicated to the study. Subjects and data collection The athletes included in the study were registered on the French High Level or Junior athlete lists. High Level athletes are individuals selected by their sport’s national federation for meeting specific performance criteria. Juniors are youth athletes at least 12 years old who are also officially ... type of professional or region. Results 2067 athletes? ?? evaluations were returned to IRMES between 2008 and 2009 and included in the analysis. With a total of 16013 High Level and Junior athletes registered on national lists, the sample represents 13% of this population. The proportion of male to female athletes included was representative of the nationwide
