Questions related to Physical Education and Sport
I am looking for information for the last 100 or 50 years on measurable sporting performance (for example: in athletics, swimming, cycling, rowing and the like) for competitors aged 40+, 50+, 60+, 70+ etc to answer the question: Has the physical performance of the elderly changed over the last 100 or 50 years?
Results for London etc marathons provide times and ages since the 1980s, but that is one activity and just 35 years.
Is there more information?

I sent an article to the Journal of Physical Education and Sport (JPES) a few months ago, and I have been trying to contact them on a numerous occasions since then on whether they received my article. I sent them emails, multiple times, asking for any confirmation whether they will review the article or not, so I can submit it to another journal. There was no answer whatsoever.
I called every phone of their Editorial office many times (shown on their website), and although I was charged because of the voicemail/fax answer machine, no body picked up the phone.
I asked a colleague of mine (researcher from Romania) to contact them, and he also called them many times during the last week and nobody answered.
I wrote to them on their Facebook page as well, but it seems that nobody has seen this message at all.
I was wondering whether you have had any experience with this journal and whether is normal not to receive any email and confirmation on whether they received your article for more than 2 months?
Thank you for your time,
Firstly, is it correct to describe the study as an AB/BA crossover design if I have 2 conditions and 2 periods but all participants were followed-up at 16-months post-intervention also?
Secondly, are there any useful resources I can refer to, to figure out how to correctly analyse the data using SPSS?
Measurements were taken pre and post period 1 and then pre and post period 2 and again at 16-months post-intervention.
4 schools with 11 class groups were included. Before baseline 2 schools (6 class groups) were assigned to the AB condition and 2 schools (6 class groups) were assigned to the BA condition. A was a control condition where groups continued with normal PE lessons and B was the intervention condition (8-week intervention focusing on fundamental movement skill development). A 4-week washout period was included before groups crossed over for period 2. All participants were assessed for FMS proficiency and BMI across 5 time-points.
Time 1: Period 1 pre-test
Time 2: Period 1 post-test
4-week wash-out period, then groups crossed over for period 2
Time 3: Period 2 pre-test
Time 4: Period 2 post-test
Time 5: 16-month post-intervention
1. can an 8-week intervention programme lead to significant improvements in FMS proficiency levels?
2. can any improvement in FMS proficiency levels be maintained over time?
3. do the effects of the intervention programme vary by sex and/or weight status?
How can I record the central relative timing of the components of the dart throwing?
We are going to analysis the EEG signal of dart throwing to components of throwing so that measuring the central relative timing and investigating the validation of the stability of the relative timing of GMP (about the schema theory, Schmidt, 1975, 2003).
If not, how can I access the English version?
I would like to use it for my Master's Thesis.
Action in sports, which refers to "what to do in the play", are qualified as unconscious actions due to time restrictions. In fact, players have very limited time to determine that actions in the course of the game and of course to execute them. Decision-making is studied in the area of sport sciences as a task that players must repeat at all moments during the game and for its entire duration. However, players thrive to make better decisions, which implies to recall their own actions, rethink them and at some point to describe them so they can discuss about it with other teammates. That portion of learning seems to be praised as useful for the quality of teaching-learning-training process although still lacks of scientific evidence due to the complexity decision-making and learning processes themselves.

Can it affect your academic performance? What's the problem faced by teachers in organizing sports in school?
Please indicate a few sources where I can Find the relevant information for this Research Question.
Accelerometer cut points for obese populations.
Does anyone have experience in measuring physical activity by accelerometer in obese individuals?
Due to a greater body mass the energy cost of movement is greater in obese individuals. There is a clear argument for using specific cut points in obese individuals. However, there is very little in the literature on this subject.
If anyone has got experience in this, what cut points did you use and what was your rational for using these cut points?
Any thoughts or discussion on this is much appreciated
We want to observe interaction and social skills in a group of adolescents with autism who are part of a sport-based program. Is there a validated tool for such thing? Could anyone point me in the right direction? I am happy to share research notes if anyone is interested.
I am working physical education and sport department. I’m planning to investigate ADD group (child or adult) determination via exercise program. I read about various articles for exercise in the publication. But, I didn’t find enough information about measument of ADD.
Would you like some advice about tests (performance of attention) for evaluation of ADD.
Thank you for your attention...

I am planning on investigating the relationship between student and teacher goal orientation. Have basically decided on the AGQ-S for students in physical education, and need a corresponding measure tested on teachers´ goal orientation. Any suggestions?
I instruct elementary physical education methods and will have a large number (28) of students during the semester. The typical class size is 15. Students enrolled in the course will learn to construct and instruct a 30-minute lesson plan in physical education. For many of the students, this will be the first experience in writing and instructing a lesson plan. Field experiences will also be required with placement being in one physical education setting. The entire group of 28 will attend the field experiences together. The course meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so during the semester there are approximately 28 class days. Several weeks are needed to introduce physical education concepts and fundamental skills before instructing the lesson plan and its components. I would love ideas and suggestions on how to accommodate 28 students in physical education methods without losing the effectiveness of my own instruction.

I am planning to get water polo throwing velocity by capturing video from their shooting process with the camera
any article suggestion, how should be my procedure?
what type of camera do I need ?
how can I find out the speed from the video?
If I have allometrically scaled (body mass) data from a performance test is it possible to use the scaling component to track changes longitundinally?
If I scaled data from a baseline measure (fitness test) from a full squad/cohort of players, and want to assess a number of specific players longitudinally (across a season) do I still use the original scaling component from baseline to assess changes?
For example if a player has a large increase in body mass across a season but maintains performance of a fitness test, does the original scaling component apply as I am assessing the individual against themselves?
As part of a conference that I have to realize, I'm looking for the following:

The most successful businesses have one thing in common: they never stop learning. They consequently execute their continuous improvement programs, based on bench-marking with their most successful competitors or even the best-of-best organizations even outside their own industry. So for example a top manufacturer aspiring to deliver world class services around his products will look at top service providers e.g. in the hospitality industry.
To what degree does sports science exploit the potential of learning from the best-of-best?
Lets look at golf. In order to develop a good swing, some basic capabilities are needed: flexibility, stability, hand-eye-coordination, etc.
Are there any studies that,
- identify the basic capabilities
- identify the best-of-best a golfer can learn from
- show how golf training could incorporate training practices from these best-of-best?
Physical education teachers play a key role in promoting health-seeking behaviors. However, teachers will successfully serve the role of a health promoter only if they themselves display a positive attitude towards their own health. I am looking for information about health behaviors (e.g. physical activity, proper nutrition habits, prophylactic behavior, health practices) undertaken by physical education teachers.
I would be glad to receive some references as well.

How do you rate (percent wise) the performance of skills? Is the rating based on the criterion with minimum standard or based on the way the student performs the skills based on skill cues? Do you give a greater score to students for competency on the skill performance such as time and distance or based on skill cues?
How do we know that students have learned a physical education skill? We can assess students using formative and summative assessments but how do we know that students will actually be able to use their skills in real-life, authentic situations? In short, how do we know that our students are competent in the target technique?
I haven't found definite evidence and guidelines for the amount of weight training children and young athletes should / could do to avoid adverse effects on growth. I'm looking for good data on risk of injuries, improper supervision / guidance, growth hormone, strength gains, training volumes, training loads.
Amateur marathon lovers who do not have the luxury of doing all kinds of exercises during day time will not have enough blood going to their brains and other internal organs including skin and bones when they train themselves for endurance. They hope that when they exercise non-stop, blood will be circulated to all their body cells. That is not true, blood only goes to their muscles. Thus, if a person does a marathon run every quarter, I expect that bone loss will start in a few years time but brain damage can happen much sooner. One more question - can the following exercise (called the 30-time start-stop interval training for internal organs) reverse brain damage and osteoporosis? The main criterion of this start-stop exercise is that you have to stop your exercise(s) 30 times in a day so that you can send more blood to your organs for a while every time when you stop moving. Please comment.
I am interested in initiating the recording of sports injuries in India. Is there any particular criteria to start this? Could you suggest how to start and manage it.?
Close chain exercise is a type of isotonic one, where the end of the chain is fixed or, in other explanation, the proximal part of the segment moves to the distal one. For open chain exercise it is evident that the end of the chain is not fixed or, for the other comment, the distal part of the segment moves to the proximal.
According to these definitions there ares conflict existing for identifying leg press sort of exercise.
Although I myself found in literature that leg press is classifyed in both forms of exercise.
I'm beginning my research in this topic and I'd like to improve my literature review.
What are recommended hamstring rehabilitation protocols for professional sport as it relates to what exercise prescription protocols would be recommended?

I am looking for a model that goes beyond e.g. the Pelz short game test (with focus on putting, bunker, chip, pitch) and that includes a comprehensive set of
- capabilities (e.g. shot shaping, distance control, course management, ...),
- results (e.g. driving distance & accuracy, fairway hits, greens in regulation, etc.) as well as a set of
- enablers (e.g. clubhead speed, kinematic chain, angle of attack, smash factor, ... physical and mental fitness, etc.)
When students apply the knowledge of other disciplines to understand physical education, then the approach is cross-disciplinary.
Nonspecific - different movement structure, but from a physiological point of view identical to the special endurance training - same HR, same levels of lactate... for example special strength training.
According to the biomechanical basis of human movement book there is a definition for the close pack position "The joint position with maximum contact between the two joint surfaces and in which the ligaments are taut, forcing the two bones to act as a single unit." However, there is no definition existing for congruency and no mention about the difference or relationship between this two.
Many new tactical metrics as centroid position, stretch index or surface area not provides pratical applications to coaches in a easy and specific way...thus, how can I design new tactical metrics to provide relevant information to coaches through automatic metrics resulting from positional tracking of players?
