    • Characteristics of Pedaling Muscle Stiffness among Cyclists of Different Performance Levels 

      López Laval, Isaac; Cirer-Sastre, Rafel; Corbi Soler, Francesc; Sitko, Sebastian (MDPI, 2021)
      Background and Objectives: The aim of the present study was to compare the impact of an incremental exercise test on muscle stiffness in the rectus femoris (RF), vastus lateralis (VL), biceps femoris (BF), and gastrocnemius ...
    • Effects of a low-carbohydrate diet on body composition and performance in road cycling: a randomized, controlled trial 

      Sitko, Sebastian; Cirer-Sastre, Rafel; Corbi Soler, Francesc; López Laval, Isaac (Arán Ediciones, 2020)
      Low-carbohydrate diets are frequently used to improve performance in endurance sports, often with contradictory results. This study aimed to assess whether a low-carbohydrate diet can outperform an isocaloric conventional ...
    • Effects of a low-carbohydrate diet on performance and body composition in trained cyclists 

      Sitko, Sebastian; Cirer-Sastre, Rafel; López Laval, Isaac (Arán Ediciones, 2019)
      Previous evidence suggests that low-carbohydrate diets may improve body composition and performance relative to body weight in endurance athletes. This has been the first study that has attempted to evaluate the utility ...
    • Effects of high altitude mountaineering on body composition: a systematic review 

      Sitko, Sebastian; Cirer-Sastre, Rafel; López Laval, Isaac (Arán Ediciones, 2019)
      High altitude mountaineering is characterized by high energetic requirements due to the environment in which the activity is developed: negative energy balance, extreme cold, high altitude and the assumption of potential ...
    • Effects of isoinertial or machine-based strength training on performance in tennis players 

      Canós, Jose; Corbi Soler, Francesc; Colomar, Joshua; Cirer-Sastre, Rafel; Baiget, Ernest (Institute of Sport; Termedia Publishing, 2022)
      : The objective of this study was to analyze the effects of two 8-week neuromuscular training (NMT) interventions on selected physical indicators in young tennis players. Twenty-four junior male tennis players were ...
    • Exercise-Induced Release of Cardiac Troponins in Adolescent vs. Adult Swimmers 

      Cirer-Sastre, Rafel; Corbi Soler, Francesc; López Laval, Isaac; Carranza García, Luis E.; Reverter Masià, Joaquín (MDPI, 2021)
      To examine the exercise-induced release of cardiac troponin T (cTnT) in adolescent and adult swimmers. Thirty-two trained male (18 adolescents, 14 adults) swam at maximal pace in a 45 min distance trial, and blood samples ...
    • Influence of maturational status in the exercise-induced release of cardiac troponin T in healthy young swimmers 

      Cirer-Sastre, Rafel; Legaz Arrese, Alejandro; Corbi Soler, Francesc; López Laval, Isaac; George, Keith; Reverter Masià, Joaquín (Elsevier, 2021)
      Objectives To determine the influence of maturational status on the release of cardiac troponin T (cTnT) induced by a bout of 30 min, high-intensity, continuous exercise. Design Quasi-experimental, cross-sectional ...
    • Power Assessment in Road Cycling: A Narrative Review 

      Sitko, Sebastian; Cirer-Sastre, Rafel; Corbi Soler, Francesc; López Laval, Isaac (MDPI, 2020)
      Nowadays, the evaluation of physiological characteristics and training load quantification in road cycling is frequently performed through power meter data analyses, but the scientific evidence behind this tool is scarce ...
    • Relación entre capacidad de salto y rendimiento en ciclismo de BMX 

      Robert, Pau; Cirer-Sastre, Rafel; López Laval, Isaac; Matas Garcia, Sergi; Álvarez-Herms, Jesús; Julià-Sánchez, Sonia; Corbi Soler, Francesc (Generalitat de Catalunya Departament de la Presidència; Institut Nacional d’Educació Física de Catalunya (INEFC), 2020)
      El objetivo de este trabajo fue valorar la relación existente entre el resultado obtenido en diferentes test de salto vertical y la mejor marca registrada durante una prueba de BMX (Bicycle Moto-Cross), y el rendimiento ...
    • The Influence of Dental Occlusion on Dynamic Balance and Muscular Tone 

      Julià-Sánchez, Sonia; Álvarez Herms, Jesús; Cirer-Sastre, Rafel; Corbi Soler, Francesc; Burtscher, Martin (Frontiers Media, 2020)
      Excellent postural control is essential to improve the physical performance of athletes. Stability of the body during motor tasks depends on different physiological systems. The influence of dental occlusion on body balance ...
    • Time to exhaustion at estimated functional threshold power in road cyclists of different performance levels 

      Sitko, Sebastian; Cirer-Sastre, Rafel; López Laval, Isaac (Elsevier, 2022)
      Objectives: This study assessed the functional threshold power and the time to exhaustion estimated from the Allen & Coggan test and verify whether performance level has an influence on this parameter. Design: Cross-sectional ...
