The purpose of this study was to compare the acute effects of static stretching; dynamic exercises and high volume upper extremity plyometric activity on tennis serve performance. Twenty-six elite young tennis players (15.1 +/- 4.2 years, 167.9 +/- 5.8 cm and 61.6 +/- 8.1 kg) performed 4 different warm-up (WU) routines in a random order on non-consecutive days. The WU methods consisted of traditional WU (jogging, rally and serve practice) (TRAD); traditional WU and static stretching (TRSS); traditional WU and dynamic exercise (TRDE); and traditional WU and high volume upper extremity plyometric activity (TRPLYP). Following each WU session, subjects were tested on a tennis serve ball speed test. TRAD, TRSS, TRDE and TRPLYO were compared by repeated measurement analyses of variance and post-hoc comparisons. In this study a 1 to 3 percent increase in tennis serve ball speed was recorded in TRDE and TRPLYO when compared to TRAD (p 0.05). ICCs for ball speed showed strong reliability (0.82 to 0.93) for the ball speed measurements. The results of this study indicate that dynamic and high volume upper extremity plyometric WU activities are likely beneficial to serve speed of elite junior tennis players.

The purpose of the present study was to investigate the acute effects of local vibration on muscle performance at different durations and frequencies. Fifteen male handball players participated in the study voluntarily. University’s Ethics Committee approved the study and the informed consent forms were filled by all participants. Different vibration durations, (10 sec, 1 min, 10 min), different frequencies (40 and 80 Hz), dominancy (dominant and non-dominant) and conditions (vibration and no-vibration) wer...
Determine he effects of long term playing socer on the degeneration of lumbar spine
Altunsöz, Ömür Serdal; Korkusuz, Feza; Department of Physical Education and Sports (2006)
The main purpose of this study was to determine whether playing soccer at high intensity training for a long period causes degeneration of the lumbar spine or not. This degeneration may occur without any symptoms or low back pain. Results of the present study were discussed in the framework of lumbar disc degeneration, trunk strength, lumbar and hip bone mineral density, trunk flexibility, activity MET scores for active and veteran soccer groups. There have been four subject groups in this study (15 active ...

İnce, Mustafa Levent (SAGE Publications, 2008-12-01)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a 12-wk. physical activity intervention, based on conceptual discussions and practices of a social cognitive theory on health-promoting behaviors of 62 university students. The intervention Mainly focused on development of self-regulatory skills, social support, and self-assessment of health-related fitness. The Adolescent Health Promotion Scale and International Physical Activity Questionnaire were given Analysis of self-reports indicated improved nut...

Oztekin, Ceyda; Tezer, Esin (2009-06-01)
This study investigated the role of sense of coherence and total physical activity in positive and negative affect. Participants were 376 (169 female, 206 male, and 1 missing value) student volunteers from different faculties of Middle East Technical University. Three questionnaires: Sense of Coherence Scale (SOC), Physical Activity Assessment Questionnaire (PAAQ), and Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS) were administered to the students together with the demographic information sheet. Two separat...
Investigation of middle school mathematics teacher emotions and their students’ mathematics achievement emotions: a mixed-methods study
Çalık, Başak; Çapa Aydın, Yeşim; Department of Curriculum and Instruction (2021-1-01)
The purpose of the study was three-fold. First, the study aimed to investigate the relationship between mathematics teachers’ emotions, self-efficacy, and burnout. Second, it was aimed to examine the relationship between mathematics teachers’ emotions and their students’ mathematics self-efficacy, perceived teaching quality, perceived teacher affective support, and mathematics achievement emotions. Third, the reasons for and relevant processes behind students’ emotions were uncovered by considering the lear...
