    Effects of high-intensity hatha yoga on cardiovascular fitness, adipocytokines, and apolipoproteins in healthy students: a randomized controlled study2016In: Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, ISSN 1075-5535, E-ISSN 1557-7708, Vol. 22, no 1, p. 81-87Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Yoga exercises are often used as a form of body and mind exercise to increase performance. However, knowledge about the physiologic effects of performing high-intensity Hatha yoga exercises over a longer time period remains limited.

    Objective: To investigate the effects of high-intensity yoga (HIY) on cardiovascular fitness (maximal oxygen consumption, estimated from the Cooper running test), ratings of perceived exertion (RPE), heart rate (HR), heart rate recovery (HRR), blood pressure (BP), adipocytokines, apolipoprotein A1 (ApoA1), apolipoprotein B (ApoB), and glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in healthy students.

    Methods: The 44 participants (38 women and 6 men; median age, 25 years [range, 20–39 years]) were randomly assigned to an HIY or a control group. The HIY program was held for 6 weeks (60 minutes once a week). Cardiovascular fitness, RPE, HR, HRR, BP, adipocytokines, HbA1c, ApoA1, and ApoB were measured at baseline and after 6 weeks in both groups.

    Results: HIY had no significant effects on cardiovascular fitness (mean dose: 390 minutes [range, 210–800 minutes]), HR, HRR, BP, or any of the blood parameters. However, ApoA1 (1.47 ± 0.17 to 1.55 ± 0.16 g/L; p = 0.03) and adiponectin (8.32 ± 3.32 to 9.68 ± 3.83 mg/L; p = 0.003) levels increased significantly in the HIY group after 6 weeks.

    Conclusions: Six weeks of HIY did not significantly improve cardiovascular fitness. However, ApoA1 and adiponectin levels increased significantly in the HIY group. This finding suggests that HIY may have positive effects on blood lipids and an anti-inflammatory effect.

    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish Sports Confederation, RF, defines itself as a ‘popular movement’. This notion has been one of the most fundamental elements of the sports movement’s self-image, and it has also been used as a way for the movement to legitimize itself – considering it is financially supported by the Swedish state. This sport organizational identity also denotes that RF is governed democratically. Both the social movement identity and the notion of democratic comportment have been fundamental to the sports movement’s self-understanding. The governing of Swedish sport has so far been scrutinized mostly on a general level concerning the relationship between public authorities and RF. The association level has not been considered to the same extent in previous research. Nor has the issue of sport democracy been particularly highlighted as a research topic in its own right. However, in order to understand the governing of as well as the social and cultural impact of Swedish sport, we must understand how those institutions in authority have been managed and regulated. Based on both innovative theoretical models and empirical in depth analysis, the articles in this special issue find new ways to explain and understand how Swedish sport has been governed and controlled.

    Spasticity After Stroke An Overview of Prevalence, Test Instruments, and Treatments2012In: American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, ISSN 0894-9115, E-ISSN 1537-7385, Vol. 91, no 9, p. 814-820Article, review/survey (Refereed)

    Sommerfeld DK, Gripenstedt U, Welmer A-K: Spasticity after stroke: An overview of prevalence, test instruments, and treatments. Am J Phys Med Rehabil 2012; 91: 814-820. The objective of this study was to present an overview of the prevalence of spasticity after stroke as well as of test instruments and treatments. Recent studies show that spasticity occurs in 20%-30% of all stroke victims and in less than half of those with pareses. Although spasticity may occur in paretic patients after stroke, muscle weakness is more likely to be the reason for the pareses. Spasticity after stroke is more common in the upper than the lower limbs, and it seems to be more common among younger than older people. To determine the nature of passive stretch, electromyographic equipment is needed. However, the Modified Ashworth Scale, which measures the sum of the biomechanical and neural components in passive stretch, is the most common instrument used to grade spasticity after stroke. Treatment of spasticity with physiotherapy is recommended, although its beneficial effect is uncertain. The treatment of spasticity with botulinum toxin in combination with physiotherapy is suggested to improve functioning in patients with severe spasticity. A task-specific approach rather than a neurodevelopmental approach in assessing and treating a patient with spasticity after stroke seems to be preferred.

    Stability and bidirectional relationship between physical activity and sedentary behaviours in Brazilian adolescents: Longitudinal findings from a school cohort study2019In: PLOS ONE, E-ISSN 1932-6203, Vol. 14, no 1, article id e0211470Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    We investigated the stability, correlations and bidirectional relationship of light physical activities (PA), moderate and vigorous PA (MVPA), television viewing (TV) and video game/computer use (VG) in Brazilian adolescents.

    Methods

    Adolescent Nutritional Assessment Longitudinal Study-ELANA is a middle school cohort study conducted in Rio de Janeiro-Brazil in 2010-2012. Self-reported data on PA (International Physical Activity Questionnaire-IPAQ) and screen activities were obtained from 810 adolescents (mean ages of 10.9 years old (SD 0.78) for girls; 11 years old (SD 0.85) for boys) to perform autoregressive cross-lagged structural equation models in two time points for PA and three time points for screen activities.

    Results

    There was no significant stability of light PA and MVPA for boys and girls. Moderate stability of screen activities were found for both genders, with a significant coefficient of TV for boys (T1-T2:0.29; T2-T3:0.27 p<0.001); and VG for boys (T1-T2:0.33; T2-T3:0.35 p<0.001) and girls (T1-T2:0.26; T2-T3:0.37 p<0.01). Significant lagged effects were obtained only among girls:light PA had effect on VG (-0.10 p<0.01), as well as in the opposite direction of TV on light PA (-0.03 p<0.01) and TV on MVPA (-0.11 p<0.01).

    Conclusion

    The light PA, MVPA and screen activities (among girls) did not demonstrate stability over time. A warning scenario was suggested by the stability of high amounts of screen activities among boys over time. Screen activities had bidirectional association with light PA and MVPA among girls over time.

    Abstract [en]

    Swedish Sport has gone through three phases from the beginning of the 20th century and its great historical change was initiated through the transition from amateurism to professional sports as occurred during the late 1960s. This second phase has since been deepened further by the sports movements democratic popular movement base has been supplemented with a deep market adjustment in the third phase, from the end of 1990s, which resulted in hybrid organizations and industrial relations with the playing contracts and collective agreements in football and hockey.

    Selected 15-year-old boy and girl football players' continuation with football and competitive level in young adulthood: the impact of individual and contextual factors2022In: European Journal for Sport and Society, ISSN 1613-8171, Vol. 19, no 4, p. 368-387Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates players who have been selected to a district team in the Swedish Football Association U15 talent programme. Using register data on all selected 15-year-old boy and girl district team players (3943 boys and 4056 girls born between 1986 and 1996) from Sweden's 24 football districts, we analysed the relationships between club affiliation at age 15, the player population of the district, date of birth, and continuation with football and competitive level as young adults. The results show that a higher percentage of boys than girls continued playing football into young adulthood and that continuation is related to district size. Belonging to an elite club at age 15 reduces the likelihood of girls playing football at age 21, but it has no effect on the likelihood of boys playing football at age 21. In addition, 15-year-old boys and girls from larger districts who played on an elite club at age 15 were more likely to play elite football at age 21. In sum, the study shows that football district size and club affiliation at age 15 affect whether boys and girls continue to play football and whether they play at an elite level as young adults.

    Peripheral BDNF Response to Physical and Cognitive Exercise and Its Association With Cardiorespiratory Fitness in Healthy Older Adults2020In: Frontiers in Physiology, E-ISSN 1664-042X, Vol. 11, article id 1080Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Physical exercise (PE) has been shown to improve brain function via multiple neurobiological mechanisms promoting neuroplasticity. Cognitive exercise (CE) combined with PE may show an even greater effect on cognitive function. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is important for neuroplastic signaling, may reduce with increasing age, and is confounded by fitness. The source and physiological role of human peripheral blood BDNF in plasma (pBDNF) is thought to differ from that in serum (sBDNF), and it is not yet known how pBDNF and sBDNF respond to PE and CE. A training intervention study in healthy older adults investigated the effects of acute (35 min) and prolonged (12 weeks, 30 sessions) CE and PE, both alone and in combination, on pBDNF and sBDNF. Cross-sectional associations between baseline pBDNF, sBDNF and cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) were also investigated. Participants (65–75 years) were randomly assigned to four groups and prescribed either CE plus 35 min of rest (n = 21, 52% female); PE [performed on a cycle ergometer at moderate intensity (65–75% of individual maximal heart rate)] plus 35 min of rest (n = 27, 56% female); CE plus PE (n = 24, 46% female), or PE plus CE (n = 25, 52% female). Groups were tested for CRF using a maximal treadmill ergometer test (VO2peak); BDNF levels (collected 48 h after CRF) during baseline, after first exercise (PE or CE) and after second exercise (PE, CE or rest); and cognitive ability pre and post 12-week training. At both pre and post, pBDNF increased after CE and PE (up to 222%), and rest (∼67%), whereas sBDNF increased only after PE (up to 18%) and returned to baseline after rest. Acute but not prolonged PE increased both pBDNF and sBDNF. CE induced acute changes in pBDNF only. Baseline pBDNF was positively associated with baseline sBDNF (n = 93, r = 0.407, p < 0.001). No changes in CRF were found in any of the groups. Baseline CRF did not correlate with baseline BDNF. Even though baseline pBDNF and sBDNF were associated, patterns of changes in pBDNF and sBDNF in response to exercise were explicitly different. Further experimental scrutiny is needed to clarify the biological mechanisms of these results.

    Abstract [sv]

    Med titeln Knäböj tar Sara Martinssons Augustpris-nominerade essäbok ett fyndigt avstamp i Sven Lindqvists Bänkpress, utgiven 1988. Lindqvists bok är en associativ reflektion om betydelsen av kroppslig styrka som kombineras med berättelsen om hur författaren själv kliver in i källargymmets gemenskap. Sara Martinssons bok har ett liknande upplägg, men mot bänkpressen som emblematisk värdemätare för manlig styrka ställer hon en annan av styrketräningens grundövningar med skivstång: knäböjen. Denna övning är, menar hon, ”det optimala kvinnliga styrkeprovet”, väl lämpad för kroppar med låg tyngdpunkt och hög andel av musklerna på underkroppen.

    Level of play and coach-rated game intelligence are related to performance on design fluency in elite soccer players2020In: Scientific Reports, E-ISSN 2045-2322, Vol. 10, no 1, article id 9852Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Executive brain functions are innate mechanisms for regulating behavior. While the impact of suboptimal executive functions has been characterized in patients, their contribution to individual success has not been elucidated. We set out to understand how executive functions relate to successful human behavior by examining their relation to game intelligence in sport - the ability to read a game and quickly adapt the behavior. In elite soccer players (n = 51), those playing in national teams (national team players) significantly outperformed those only playing at premier league level (premier league players) in Design Fluency (DF), a complex visuo-spatial executive function test that includes measures of creativity and cognitive flexibility. Their result showed a moderate correlation with coach rated game intelligence, remained also when correcting for low level cognitive capacity and was most evident when considering cognitive flexibility. DF capacity also correlated with number of assists made during the season but not with number of made goals during the same period, linking the fast planning of several steps in DF to fast planning of several steps in the soccer game. Altogether, our data suggests that DF capacity relates to success in soccer both on a subjective and on an objective level.

    Association between physical activity and all-cause mortality: A 15-year follow-up using a compositional data analysis2020In: Scandinavian Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports, ISSN 0905-7188, E-ISSN 1600-0838, Vol. 30, no 1, p. 100-107Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The association between the composition of movement behaviors and mortality risk, acknowledging the composition nature of daily time data, is limited explored. The aim was to investigate how the composition of time spent in sedentary behaviors (SB), light intensity physical activity (LIPA), and moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) is associated with all-cause mortality, in a cohort with 15 years follow-up time, using compositional data analysis. Eight hundred fifty-one participants (56% women, mean age 53 years) provided objectively assessed physical activity data using an ActiGraph accelerometer and were followed for 15 years. Association of daily time composition of movement behaviors with risk of mortality was explored using compositional data analysis and hazard ratios (HR) of mortality were estimated based on a cox regression model. A significant (P < .001) positive association between time spent in SB relative to time in other behaviors and a significant (P = .018) negative association between time spent in LIPA relative to time in other behaviors, with all-cause mortality, were found. Substituting time spent in LIPA or MVPA with time in SB increased the hazard for all-cause mortality, with greater effect found for MVPA (20 minutes replacement; HR 1.26, 95% CI 1.04-1.52) than for LIPA (20 minutes replacement; HR 1.06, 95% CI 0.65-1.73). In a public health perspective, it is recommended to substitute SB with either LIPA or MVPA, but for individuals with little time spent in MVPA, the most important message may be to try to maintain that behavior.

    Criterion validity of the Ekblom‑Bak and the Åstrand submaximal test in an elderly population2020In: European Journal of Applied Physiology, ISSN 1439-6319, E-ISSN 1439-6327, Vol. 120, no 2, p. 307-316Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose The aim of this study was to validate the submaximal Ekblom-Bak test (EB-test) and the angstrom strand test (angstrom-test) for an elderly population.

    Methods Participants (n = 104), aged 65-75 years, completed a submaximal aerobic test on a cycle ergometer followed by an individually adjusted indirect calorimetry VO(2)max test on a treadmill. The HR from the submaximal test was used to estimate VO(2)max using both the EB-test and angstrom-test equations.

    Results The correlation between measured and estimated VO(2)max using the EB method and angstrom method in women was r = 0.64 and r = 0.58, respectively and in men r = 0.44 and r = 0.44, respectively. In women, the mean difference between estimated and measured VO(2)max was - 0.02 L min(-1) (95% CI - 0.08 to 0.04) for the EB method and - 0.12 L min(-1) (95% CI - 0.22 to - 0.02) for the angstrom method. Corresponding values for men were 0.05 L min(-1) (95% CI - 0.04 to 0.14) and - 0.28 L min(-1) (95% CI - 0.42 to - 0.14), respectively. However, the EB method was found to overestimate VO(2)max in men with low fitness and the angstrom method was found to underestimate VO(2)max in both women and men. For women, the coefficient of variance was 11.1%, when using the EB method and 19.8% when using the angstrom method. Corresponding values for men were 11.6% and 18.9%, respectively.

    Conclusion The submaximal EB-test is valid for estimating VO(2)max in elderly women, but not in all elderly men. The angstrom-test is not valid for estimating VO(2)max in the elderly.

    Arbetssätt och individualisering för elever med diagnosen ADHD.: ”På medeltiden hade man säkert jättenytta av lite ADHD, som bra krigare och kung. Men det är inte de kriterier som gäller i dagens samhälle.”2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) är en av skolans vanligaste diagnoser och det uppskattas att omkring 2-3 procent av den svenska skolans elever tillhör denna kategori. Syftet med denna studie har varit att undersöka vilka tolkningar som finns för begreppet ADHD. Det har även varit ett syfte att undersökt hur en kommun i Stockholms län, en grundskola i den valda kommunen och grundskolans idrottslärare arbetar utifrån styrdokumenten för att skapa en individualiserad undervisning för elever med diagnosen ADHD.

    Intervjuer har genomförts med en kommunanställd specialpedagog, rektorn på den valda grundskolan samt tre av grundskolans idrottslärare för att spegla arbetet i den dagliga verksamheten.

    Det studien har kommit fram till är att begreppet ADHD är ett väldigt komplicerat begrepp som skolan, kommunen och forskare har svårt att enas om gemensamma förklaringar till. Enligt grundskolans styrdokument är diagnoser inte nödvändiga, men de kan ses som en stor hjälp för skolan och skolans lärare när det kommer till deras förståelse för elevens beteende. Diagnosen ADHD kan ses som ett fenomen i sig för att ge förståelse för personer runt omkring eleven. Om diagnosen ADHD skall användas i skolan bör den endast användas för att hjälpa eleven att på bästa sätt utvecklas kunskapsmässigt och personligt.

    En slutsats är att det behövs mer utbildning om begreppet ADHD i skolan för att undervisningen skall individanpassas till eleven med diagnosen ADHD på bästa möjliga sätt. Intervjupersonerna i studien har samtliga ansett att de själva skulle behöva mer utbildning för att öka förståelsen för en av skolans vanligaste diagnoser, ADHD.
