diagnosis, I found myself in a constant battle of denial, depression, anxiety, and was forced to put on a “mask” during my interactions. As Goffman ( 1959 ) states, this “mask represents the conception we have formed of ourselves—the role we are striving to live up to—this mask is our truer self, the self

were collected via indirect calorimetry with a Cortex Metalyzer II metabolic cart (Cortex; Germany). Briefly, the exercise tests were performed on a Pulsar treadmill (H/P/Cosmos; Willich, Germany), with participants wearing a mask attached to the metabolic cart. The metabolic cart conducted indirect

specific scenarios. Many available studies suffer from limitations in methodology which may mask a true interpretation of the results. Research that is poorly conducted or interpreted may result in type 1 (incorrect attribution of a performance change) or type II (failure to detect a true performance

Actiheart. Participants wore a face mask (Hans Rudolph, Shawnee, KS), and expired air was analyzed continuously using an online system that measures breath-by-breath ventilation, expired oxygen, and expired carbon dioxide (K4b 2 ; COSMED, Rome, Italy). The criteria used to define the attainment of peak V

the boys might mask deoxygenation due to the Bohr effect, resulting in an inhibition of the accelerated decrease in Δ[Oxy-Hb − Deoxy-Hb]. The lower blood lactate concentration of children ( 30 , 31 ), caused by their lower glycolytic enzyme capacity ( 10 , 16 ), should be susceptible to the blood flow

that they could not continue. After a period of rest (∼5 min), the subjects were fitted in a low-dead-space mask, breathed through an impeller turbine assembly (Jaeger Triple V, Jaeger GmbH, Hoechberg, Germany), and repeated the treadmill familiarization. After the familiarization session, the subjects

sequences of CT on EE during and postexercise in young women. This study employed a randomized crossover design and was composed of 4 distinct sessions. The first session consisted of familiarization with the aquatic environment, water-based exercises and with the mask for expiratory gas collection. In a
