ABSTRACT

A adolescência é um período fundamental para a aquisição da massa óssea. Em adolescentes atletas, o pico de massa óssea pode apresentar maior incremento, em virtude do estresse mecânico imposto aos ossos pelo exercício físico praticado. O objetivo desta revisão foi investigar o papel do treinamento esportivo vigoroso e precoce sobre a saúde óssea de atletas adolescentes. Através da revisão da literatura científica, envolvendo adolescentes atletas de diferentes modalidades e de ambos os sexos, é possível inferir que a densidade mineral óssea é potencializada pelos exercícios, quando grupos de atletas são comparados com grupos de controle. Entretanto, muito se discute na literatura quanto à recomendação da intensidade adequada da prescrição de exercício físico para população adolescente, uma vez que, caso o treinamento se torne muito extenuante, os benefícios gerados pela atividade sobre a saúde dos ossos podem ser minimizados ou anulados. Embora muita controvérsia ainda envolva o tema, independente do tipo de esporte praticado, o aumento de intensidade do treinamento deve ser razoável e coerente com as metas, sendo enfatizado treinamento seguro e eficaz para cada uma das faixas de idade e momentos da maturação biológica, independente dos calendários competitivos.

    • "From her perspective, there is a great difference between what is observed and what is desired. This event may lead towards dissatisfaction and low selfesteem which induces the development of eating disorders such as bulimia nervosa (Andrade & Bosi, 2003; Mond et al., 2004; Reato, 2002; Silva et al., 2003). Many authors agree that the most prevalent aspect of female dissatisfaction occurs in issues referring to weight and appearance. "

    ABSTRACT: Objective: To present an up-to-date critical review about the impact of sports and physical activity on growth, pubertal development and bone mineralization of children and adolescents. Data source: Bibliographic search of Medline and Lilacs databases (1987-2007) with selection of studies written in English, Portuguese or Spanish, with the descriptors "sports" and "exercise" in combination with "growth", "puberty" and "bone mineralization". A total of 252 articles were retrieved and 48 of them were se- lected. Data synthesis: Light to moderate physical activity has a beneficial effect on growth and bone development, while intense physical training, specially if associated to dietary restrictions, may attenuate linear growth, pubertal development, reproductive function and bone mineraliza- tion. Different sports do not have specific effects on final height. There is a selection bias in which constitutional factors contribute to select favored biotypes to specific sports. Weight-training by pre-pubertal children may be harmful, if not supervised, due to the potential risk of injure to the growth plates; however, if performed under strict supervision, may provide muscle strength and resistance. Conclusions: Deleterious effects of sports in growth and development of children and adolescents were only observed in elite athletes submitted to intensive training and dietetic restriction. Longitudinal studies are neded to

    ABSTRACT: The study compared indicators of biological maturation between fem ale gymnastics' athletes from Rio de Janeiro, athletes from other countries, and non-athletical girls of a similar age. A group of 9 gymnasts aged 9 to 12 years-old was observed (mean=11±3 yrs). The biological maturation was assessed by means of a questionnaire and radiological examination of the left wrist and hand. Despite their young chronological age, the gymnasts had a workload similar to elite athletes' training work-outs. Furthermore, according to the indicators employed, the subjects showed a tendency for delayed puberty. RESUMEN
