Testosterone, a steroid hormone from the androgen group, may affect mood; behavior; neuromuscular expression of speed, power, and strength (SPS); and protein metabolism. 2 – 4 Specifically, higher concentrations of

RED-S model lists as “metabolic,” “endocrine,” “menstrual function,” and “bone health” consequences ( Mountjoy et al., 2014 ). While it is well accepted that low EA affects reproductive hormones, resulting in menstrual dysfunction, it is important to clarify what is and is not known about other

Dehydration The effect of hydration status on the performance of various exercise tasks has been studied extensively, and hydration status can also affect the brain

The purpose of this study was to extend the work of Jones and Hanton (2001) by examining differences in affective states of performers who reported facilitating or debilitating interpretations of symptoms associated with precompetitive anxiety. Competitive athletes (N = 229) completed state and trait versions of the CSAI-2 (Martens, Burton, Vealey, Bump, & Smith, 1990), including intensity and direction subscales (Jones & Swain, 1992) and an exploratory measure of precompetitive affective responses in preparation and competition. “Facilitators” reported significantly greater positive labeling of affective experiences than “debilitators,” while cognitive interpretations of symptoms were reported to change with regard to preparation for and actual performance. The findings further support the need to examine the labeling and measurement of precompetitive affective states.

aging-associated cognitive decline ( Letenneur et al., 2007 ). For many years, benefits were attributed to the anthocyanins scavenging free radicals by B-ring hydroxyl groups and conjugated double bonds. However, anthocyanins also affect signaling pathways ( Qin & Anderson, 2012 ), particularly the

There is strong evidence from experimental studies 3 – 5 , 13 suggesting that the TID adopted by an athlete greatly affects the resultant performance and physiological adaptations. Furthermore, elite athletes aim to periodize their TID throughout different training phases within

caffeine ingestion are indicative of an effect, although this did not reach statistical significance. Similar results have been reported by Rodrigues et al. ( 1990 ). In this study, ingestion of 5 mg/kg caffeine did not affect total cycling time to exhaustion; however, this study also included a small
