“Get Tough!”: A Case Study On The Development Of The Sport Ethic In Youth Lacrosse, Ross Budziszewski 2019 Utah State University

“Get Tough!”: A Case Study On The Development Of The Sport Ethic In Youth Lacrosse, Ross Budziszewski

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

While participation in youth sport is often linked with positive psychosocial and physical outcomes (Holt et al., 2017), this context can also cultivate ideals that lead to the development of unethical beliefs as well as unsafe sport practices (Al-Yaarbi & Kavussanu, 2017). The sport ethic is described as the deviant overconformity by an athlete to fit societal expectations of a sport’s high-performance culture (Hughes & Coakley, 1991). Strong beliefs in the sport ethic can lead to moral disengagement, antisocial behavior, and viewing sport like warfare (Shields, Funk, & Bredemeier, 2015). Although the sport ethic has been examined in competitive adult sport (Coakley ...

Improved mood may increase the consumption of healthy foods and decrease the intake of unhealthy foods. Increased physical activity might improve mood and, thus, eating behaviors. Adults (Mage = 45 years) with severe and morbid obesity (Mbody mass index = 41kg/m2) were randomly assigned to 6 months of either cognitive-behavioral physical activity and nutrition-support methods alone (n = 92), or those methods plus mood regulation training (n = 92). There were significant improvements in physical activity, mood, self-regulation and selfefficacy for controlling eating, and weight that did not differ by group. Improvement in mood was associated with greater fruit/vegetable intake. Change in ...

GRS Ultra Reviews - The one complication is that they're right. I am being somewhat confusing. We have to study the reports on current healthy health models. Guess what my Daddy announced, "No news is cool news." That's a new take on things this afternoon. Ironically, in all of my months with healthy health, I have come to the conclusion that there are few healthy health tips that will do you good. Perhaps I wouldn't invite it, at least partially. Newcomers also like them to use environmentally conscious business practices. It's right up until that point. GRS ...

• Wearable accelerometers have become the standard method for assessing physical activity for both individuals and field-based research [1]. These new devices allow consumers to have the ability to estimate total energy expenditure and track it over time. • Resting Energy Expenditure plays a critical role in estimating daily total energy expenditure as it contributes 60-70% of total energy expenditure [2,3]. • Little to no information is available to substantiate the validity of these consumer-based activity monitors under free-living conditions.

The Factors Affecting Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tears In Female Athletes A Synthesis Of The Research Literature, Courtney L. Szczesniak 2019 The College at Brockport

The Factors Affecting Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tears In Female Athletes A Synthesis Of The Research Literature, Courtney L. Szczesniak

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Synthesis Projects

Research has shown that female athletes are more likely to injure their anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) than male athletes (Elliot, Goldberg, & Kuehl, 2010). Although female athletic opportunities have increased over the past few decades, this increased risk for ACL injuries may deter some individuals from participating in sport, especially those that involve quick movements where knee injuries are more prevalent (e.g., soccer, basketball). Thus, the purpose of this synthesis is to identify risk factors specific to female athletes that contribute to their increased ACL vulnerability. A search procedure utilizing SPORTDiscus, Academic Search Complete, and Physical Education Index was conducted ...
