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 seconds of recovery. The MICT completed 24-48 minutes of continuous running. Before and after the 8-week interventions the following tests were completed: maximum oxygen consumption (VO2max) estimated from the Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test level 1 (YYIRTL-1), repeated sprint ability (RSA), 10-30-m sprint test, change of direction test (T-drill), countermovement jump (CMI) and squat jump (Si), and triple hop distance test (THD). Training rating of perceived exertion (RPE) and physical activity enjoyment scale (PACES) were assessed during the training programme. The HIIT resulted in greater improvement in YYIRTL-1, VO2max, RSA and T-drill performances compared to the MICT. Furthermore, RPE and PACES values were higher in the HIIT than the MICT. This study suggested that self-paced HIIT may be a more effective training regime to improve aerobic fitness with greater physical enjoyment in recreationally active young adults.

Effects of self-selected dehydration and meaningful rehydration on anaerobic power and heart rate recovery of elite wrestlers
Cengiz, Asim (2015-05-01)
[Purpose] This study aimed to verify the effects of self-directed weight loss on lower-and upper-body power, fatigue index, and heart rate recovery immediately before a meaningful competition (12 hours of recovery). In addition, this study tested the hypothesis that weight loss provides advantages in strength and power, as the relative power of the wrestlers is higher than that of opponents in the same weight class who do not reduce weight. [Subjects and Methods] Eleven well-trained wrestlers volunteered fo...
Effects of stimulus speed, exercise intensity, and experience level on coincidence anticipation timing in badminton players
Golshaei, Bahman; Kirazcı, Sadettin; Department of Physical Education and Sports (2020)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of stimulus speed, exercise intensity, and experience level (experienced, novice, & sedentary) on coincidence- anticipation timing performance of adolescent badminton players. 139 participants consist of experienced (n=42), novice (n=43) badminton players, and sedentary (n=54) with the age range of 11 to 17 years old voluntarily participated in the presented study after ethical approval. Coincidence anticipation timing scores was evaluated by Bassin Antic...
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...

Purpose of this study is comparing the effects of plyometric training in hypoxia and normoxia on body composition, jump and sprint performance, Wingate anaerobic power and isokinetic strength test results. 23 male volunteers from physical education students (Age=20.39±2.02) participated and were randomly divided into Plyometric training in Hypoxia (PTH)(n=8), Plyometric training in Normoxia (PTN)(n=7) and Control (n=8) groups. While PTH performed plyometric training under normobaric hypoxic conditions (3.53...
Effect of health related fitness physical education intervention on 9th grade students’ health related fitness knowledge, physical activity and physical fitness levels
Akıncı, Yasin; Kirazcı, Sadettin; Department of Physical Education and Sports (2014)
Purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of 8-week health related physical education course (HRFPEC) intervention on 9th grade students’ health related fitness knowledge (HRFK) level, physical activity level (PAL) and physical fitness levels. An experimental research design with two groups as HRFPEC and skill based physical education course with 154 students from conveniently assigned classes were measured before and after intervention. While experimental group attended the HRFPEC intervention, c...
