  • Vanhatalo, Anni; Doust, Jonathan H.; Burnley, Mark (2007-03)
    Purpose: We tested the hypothesis that the power output attained at the end of a 3-min all-out cycling test would be equivalent to critical power. Methods: Ten habitually active subjects performed a ramp test, two 3-min ...
  • Beedie, Christopher J. (2007-03-01)
    The paper examines the placebo effect in sports performance. The possibility that the placebo effect is a more common phenomenon than the quantity of published research would suggest is briefly addressed. It is suggested ...
  • Stagno, Karl; Van Someren, Ken; Thatcher, Rhys (2007-04)
    The aims of the study were to modify the training impulse (TRIMP) method of quantifying training load for use with intermittent team sports, and to examine the relationship between this modified TRIMP (TRIMPMOD) and changes ...
  • Beedie, Christopher J.; Coleman, Damian A.; Foad, Abigail J. (2007-06)
    The article describes a study examining placebo effects associated with the administration of a hypothetical ergogenic aid in sport. Forty-two team-sport athletes were randomly assigned to 2 groups. All subjects completed ...
  • Burnley, Mark; Jones, Andrew M. (2007-08)
    It is well known that physiological variables such as maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max), exercise economy, the lactate threshold, and critical power are highly correlated with endurance exercise performance. In this review, ...
  • Lavallee, David; Beauchamp, M. B.; Jackson, B. (Psychology Press, 2007-11)
    Can a better understanding of group dynamics raise individual and team athletic performance or improve the outcomes of exercise interventions? Much human behaviour in sport and exercise settings is embedded within groups ...
  • Woods, Bernadette (Aberystwyth UniversitySport and Exercise Science, 2007-11)
    The aims of this thesis were to investigate the substitute role in football and understand players' psychological responses to becoming a substitute player. This was achieved in three stages, firstly by completing a ...
  • Muri, Jennifer; Winter, Samantha L.; Challis, John H. (2008)
    The purpose of this study was to examine how the limb segment inertial parameters vary across the decades from the 1920s to the 1970s. Sixty-six males participated in this study, ranging in age from 20 to 79 years. ...
  • Challis, John H.; Murdoch, Chloe; Winter, Samantha L. (2008)
    The purpose of this study was to compare the heel pad mechanical properties of runners, who repetitively load the heel pad during training, with cyclists who do not load their heel pads during training. Ten competitive ...
  • Trojian, Thomas H.; Beedie, Christopher J. (2008)
    Anecdotal and experimental evidence suggest that the placebo effect is seen in athletics. To this end, placebos have been used in clinical practice and athletic performance. Positive reinforcement and the beliefs of athletes ...
  • Rahman, Rachel (Aberystwyth UniversityDepartment of Sport and Exercise Science, 2008)
    The aim of this thesis was to test the use of Self-Determination Theory (SDT; Deci & Ryan, 1985a) in predicting adherence to and psychological outcomes in supervised exercise rehabilitation. The research focused on a G.P. ...
  • Markham, Wolfgang A.; Aveyard, Paul; Bisset, Sherri L.; Lancashire, Emma R.; Bridle, Christopher; Deakin, Sara (2008-01)
    Aim To show that schools achieving higher examination pass and lower truancy rates than expected, given that their pupil populations (high value-added schools) are associated with a lower incidence of smoking among pupils ...
  • Foad, Abigail J.; Beedie, Christopher J.; Coleman, Damian A. (2008-01)
    Aim: To explore the psychological and pharmacological effects of caffeine in laboratory cycling performance. Method: Fourteen male competitive cyclists performed 14 40-km time trials (eight experimental interspersed with ...
  • Snape, Jeremy; Lavallee, David (2008-02)
  • Lavallee, David; Anderson, Ailsa G. (2008-03)
    The ability of the Theories of Reasoned Action (TRA) and Planned Behavior (TPB) to predict adherence to training in a group of athletes (N = 46; M age = 20.2, SD = 3.7 years) who had recently been introduced to a new ...
  • Lavallee, David; Nicolas, Michel; Laurin, Raphael (2008-03)
    The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of a personal goal-based intervention on positive and negative moods among young athletes at a soccer academy. Study participants (N = 22) were randomized into either a ...
  • Williams, J.; Lavallee, David; Jones, M. (McGraw-Hill, 2008-03)
    Key Studies in Sport and Exercise Psychology provides readers with a volume that examines in depth some of the most important and influential studies in sport and exercise psychology. Extensive examination of such studies ...
  • Beedie, Christopher J.; Foad, Abigail J.; Coleman, Damian A. (2008-03)
    The placebo effect, a positive outcome resulting from the belief that a beneficial treatment has been received, is widely acknowledged but little understood. It has been suggested that placebo responsiveness, the degree ...
  • Markland, David; Oliver, Emily Jane (2008-03)
    The Sociocultural Attitudes Towards Appearance Questionnaire-3 measures awareness and endorsement of societal appearance standards. The instrument has been subjected to exploratory factor analyses but to date no studies ...
  • Vanhatalo, Anni; Doust, Jonathan H.; Burnley, Mark (2008-03-01)
    The purpose of this study was to assess whether end-test power output (EP, synonymous with 'critical power') and the work done above EP (WEP) during a 3 min all-out cycling test against a fixed resistance were affected by ...
