The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of 4 week respiratory muscle training (RMT) on intermittent recovery performance, pulmonary functions and maximum oxygen consumption capacity (Vo2max) of young soccer players. Eighteen young soccer player who were playing in the Turkey PAF League (league for candidate professional soccer players) from Hacettepe Sports Club with a mean age of 18.4 ± 0.8 years (ranging from 17 to 19 years) and 8.5 ± 0.7 (ranging from 7 to 9 years) years experience in soccer participated. Players’ weekly metabolic equivalent score (MET) was 120. Their maximum oxygen consumption (Vo2max) on a treadmill, pulmonary function with a spirometer, and recovery performance with a yo-yo intermittent recovery test level 2 were measured and then they were randomly assigned into two groups as either RMT (n = 9) or control (n = 9). The RMT group continued both their regular training and RMT treatment with a commercially available powerlung sport respiratory muscle trainer (Powerlung Inc., TX, and USA) for 4 weeks. The control group only continued with their regular training. After completing 4 week RMT implementation (composed of 30 sets of inhalation, two times a day, 5 days of the week), the same tests were performed in order to see the v effects of 4 week RMT treatment on selected parameters mentioned above. Findings of this study indicated that 4 week of RMT treatment significantly improved (% 39) yo-yo intermittent recovery test level 2 performances of the RMT group from pre to post test measurements when compared to subjects in the control group. However, there were no significant improvements in both RMT and control group’s Vo2max capacity, Vital capacity (VC), Forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory flow (FEV1.0) and Peak expiratory flow performances (PEF). As a conclusion, 4 week of RMT implementation improves the intermittent recovery performance of young soccer players.

Exercise induced endocannabinoid and immune system alterations
Özdurak, Rabia Hürrem; Korkusuz, Feza; Department of Physical Education and Sports (2009)
Endocannabinoid and immune system alterations at moderate (18 m/min) and endurance (32 m/min) exercise intensities were assessed and compared to controls. Rats were exercised for 60 minutes/day, 5 days/week for 16 weeks. Immune effector cell proportions (T cell subtypes, B cells, NK cells, and neutrophils) and endocannabinoid serum levels were determined. Anandamide (ANA) and 2 arachidonyl-glycerol (2-AG) serum levels increased with endurance type of exercise. mRNA expression of the CB1 receptor increased t...
Effects of 5 week nordic hamstring strength training on 10-12 years old male basketball players
Tansel, Rıfat Baran; Korkusuz, Feza; Department of Physical Education and Sports (2006)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of Nordic hamstring strength training (NHST) program on (1) leg power, (2) vertical jump, (3) and knee proprioception measurements of 10-12 years old male basketball players. Nordic Hamstring Strength Training (NHST) group (N=16), participated in basketball training plus in Nordic hamstring strength training, while the control group (N=11) participated in basketball training only. Subjects were tested before and after 5-week training program for, vert...
A Multivariate Approach to Assessing Anaerobic Power Following a Plyometric Training Program
Koçak, Mehmet Settar (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 1997-01-01)
This study used a multivariate approach to assess anaerobic power in 20 athletes and 20 nonathletes undergoing 6 weeks of plyometric training, and 20 controls. A 3 x 2 mixed model MANOVA was done to analyze the pre-and posttest scores of vertical jump, 50-m dash, and Margaria-Kalamen stairclimbing test. The Group x Test interaction was significant (p < 0.001). Both groups that underwent plyometric training improved significantly (p < 0.01) on all tests of anaerobic power. Of the dependent measures, the Marg...
Effects of eccentric hamstring training on lower extremity strength and landing kinetics in female recreational athletes
Salcı, Yaşar; Korkusuz, Feza; Department of Physical Education and Sports (2008)
The purpose of this study was to display increase in eccentric hamstring strength after 10-weeks training program. Secondly, if such an increase occurred, would this strength change result in altered landing kinetics and improved jumping performance? 27 recreational female athletes assigned into experimental (n = 14) and control (n = 13) groups. Baseline measures of landing kinetics were collected using a force plate, strength data and proprioceptive measurements were evaluated using an isokinetic dynamomet...
The effect of different impact exercise training on deformational behavior and functional adaptation of articular cartilage
Çelik, Özgür; Korkusuz, Feza; Department of Physical Education and Sports (2010)
The objective of the present study was to investigate deformational behavior and functional adaptation of articular cartilage by comparing the changes of biochemical osteoarthritis markers’ concentrations due to 30-min exercise after 12-weeks of regular high impact, impact or non-impact exercise. Blood samples were drawn from 44 healthy sedentary males immediately before, immediately after and 0.5 h after a 30-min moderate walking exercise. Osteoarthritis biomarkers’ (Serum COMP and CTX-I) concentrations we...
