The effects of intensified training on resting metabolic rate (RMR), body composition and performance in trained cyclists
Recent research has demonstrated decreases in resting metabolic rate (RMR), body composition and performance following a period of intensified training in elite athletes, however the underlying mechanisms of change remain unclear.
Cardiac autonomic responses during exercise and post-exercise recovery using heart rate variability and systolic time intervals – a review
Cardiac parasympathetic activity may be non-invasively investigated using heart rate variability (HRV), although HRV is not widely accepted to reﬂect sympathetic activity.
Assessing the measurement sensitivity and diagnostic characteristics of athlete-monitoring tools in national swimmers
To assess measurement sensitivity and diagnostic characteristics of athlete-monitoring tools to identify performance change.
The use of simulation training to accelerate the rate of forward ice skating skill acquisition
Australia’s interest and participation in ice hockey is increasing, however a lack of access to facilities means familiarity with this sport is limited, and so too is the facilitation of skill development within an ecologically valid context.
