chronic sleep deprivation, masking the effect of alterations in training requirements on subsequent sleep. As such, future research could investigate the objective and subjective sleep characteristics and subjective wellness of team-sport athletes who regularly obtain sufficient sleep during intensified

reliability of single urine sampling of T PC may remain skewed. This is rather noteworthy, as the presence of T PC could potentially mask actual fluid-deficit characterization via U SG . Indeed, Fernandez-Elias et al 9 showed that regardless of an overall high-positive correlation between U SG and U OSM

, prior to the 15-minute half-time interval. Blood sampling, BP measurement, and a third battery of CMJ and RT tests were repeated right before and after the third 22.5-minute period. After that, the participants were connected to the gas analyzer by putting on a face mask and embarked on the fourth

After the preparatory phase, the athlete performed the maximum voluntary contraction (MVC) protocol for each muscle selected for testing. Next, the gas analyzer and face mask were fitted to the athlete and this was followed by a 5-minute

To mask the content, each drink (protein and carbohydrate) came in two flavors (protein: apple and grapefruit; carbohydrate: berry and pomegranate). Each subject received the same flavored drink every night by

Thus, future work using a comprehensive battery of cognitive tests that investigate thoroughly different cognitive domains is warranted. The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale

In addition, capsules were preferred to powder to mask the taste of the substances ingested and allow blinding of the participants to the experimental conditions. Capsules were consumed in
