Effects of 8-week core stability training on junior male soccer players’ stattic balance performance

Yıldızer, Günay
The purpose of this study was to test the effectiveness of Core Stability Training on static balance performance. Studies on soccer focused on elites comparing to young. Regarding the locomotion, balance is a base for movement patterns. Soccer consist of different movements, mostly they are different types of running, kicking and bending. Core Stability training methods have been used for improving major muscles which have great role on maintaining balance. 15 of the soccer players were in the intervention group, 12 of them were in the control group. Data were collected by Force Platform. Statistical analyses conducted for; Bilateral Stance, Unilateral Stance. For bilateral balance test Mixed Design ANOVA revealed that there is no main effect or interaction of independent variables on balance performance. For unilateral balance test statistical analyzes revealed that visual condition is an important factor for AP direction among players F(1, 25) = 8.45, p <.05. Main effect observed for AP direction was test effect on unilateral static balance performance regardless of being in intervention or control group F(1,25) = 4.28, p<.05. Mixed ANOVA revealed interaction between visual condition and test for ML direction F(1, 25) = 6.35, p<.05. It has been observed that there were decreases in sway distances between pre and post test scores in both group. Although it was not significant the decreases was bigger in intervention. Stable surface 8 week Core Stability Training was ineffective in terms of improving balance, additional movements with unstable surface devices should be added to presented program.


Effect of microstructural modification on damage tolerance of 34CrMo4 shaft steel
Ozcan, Burak; Gurer, Goksu; Gür, Cemil Hakan (Wiley, 2020-06-01)
Overall damage tolerances of the heat-treated 34CrMo4 steels having ferritic-pearlitic, bainitic, and tempered-martensitic microstructures were evaluated based on their threshold stress intensity factor prior to small crack propagation, fatigue strength, and fracture toughness under static loading. Kitagawa-Takahashi diagrams were constructed to determine the limiting size of small crack propagation. The micromechanical effects of carbide morphology and phase distribution on quasi-static and dynamic mechani...
Effects of self-paced high-intensity interval training and moderate- intensity continuous training on the physical performance and psychophysiological responses in recreationally active young adults
Soylu, Yusuf; ARSLAN, ERŞAN; Söğüt, Mustafa; Kilit, Bulent; Clemente, Filipe (2021-01-01)
This study aimed to compare the effects of 8-week self-paced high-intensity interval training (HIIT) vs. self-paced moderate-intensity continuous training (MICT) on the physical performance and psychophysiological responses of young adults. Twenty-eight recreationally active young adults (age: 21.1 +/- 1.6 years) were randomly assigned to either the self-paced HIIT (n = 14) or the MICT (n = 14) group training protocol. The HIIT consisted of two 12-24 x 30 seconds of high-intensity runs interspersed by 30 se...
Effects of 6 Weeks Psychological Skill Training on Team Cohesion Self confidence Anxiety A Case of Youth Basketball Players
MİÇOOĞULLARI, BÜLENT OKAN; Kirazcı, Sadettin (2016-01-01)
The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of a six-week psychological skill training (PST) program that is based on a cognitive-behavioral conceptual framework on team cohesion, confidence, and anxiety of an intact team. Thirty-six male basketball players, 19 athletes for the experimental group and 17 athletes for the control group, aged between 15-16 years old voluntarily participated in this study. For the quantitative part of the study, the Group Environment Questionnaire, Trait Sport-Confidenc...
Effects of 6 weeks psychological skill training on team cohesion, self-confidence & anxiety : a case of youth basketball players
Miçooğulları, Okan Bülent; Kirazcı, Sadettin; Aşçı, F. Hülya; Department of Physical Education and Sports (2013)
The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of six weeks psychological skills training program (PST) based on cognitive-behavioral conceptual framework on the team cohesion, confidence, and anxiety of an intact team. Participants consisted of two teams of 36 male youth basketball players. The PST program consisted of team building, goal setting, relaxation, imagery, self-talk, pep-talk, converting thoughts, autogenic training, and progressive relaxation techniques. For the quantitative part of the s...
The effects of positive core self and external evaluations on performance appraisals
Güven, Lale; Sümer, Canan H; Department of Industrial and Organizational Psychology (2007)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of core self-evaluations (CSEs) and core external-evaluations (CEEs) on performance evaluations. It was hypothesized that people with higher levels of CSEs and CEEs would be more lenient in their performance ratings, when rating neutral performance. The second hypothesis of the study was that people with higher and lower CSEs would engage more in halo when rating neutral performance compared to people with average levels of CSEs. It was further hypoth...
