; Zirin, 2005 ). It has been suggested that the academy system leaves players unprepared in terms of the life skills and resources needed to transition to productive, socially healthy lives after sport ( Danish, Petitpas, & Hale, 1993 ; Schlossberg, 1981 ; Taylor & Olgivie, 1994 ). Theoretical and

investigating sport participation from a holistic life-span perspective, central to which are transitions (cf. Alfermann & Stambulova, 2007 ; Debois, Ledon, & Wylleman, 2015 ; Stambulova, 2012 ). Transitions are continuous processes whereby individuals use effective coping to overcome a set of specific

within the pedaling cycle. With proper orientation of noncircular chainrings, variable crank angular velocity could increase time spent in the leg extension and flexion phases, where joint-action powers are high, and reduce time spent in the transition phases, where power is low 6 , 12 – 14 thereby

center of gravity can greatly alter balance during different postural transition phases and the reason why STS requires good coordination of muscle activity to achieve postural stability. With age-related reductions in the physical mobility of older adults, decreased motor control ability exerts greater

, each participant completed a series of exercise transitions to a higher intensity on the motorized treadmill. Each series consisted of 3-minute unloaded (standing), 4-minute running at an intensity equivalent to 95% GET (moderate intensity), and a run to exhaustion at an intensity equivalent to 60%Δ
