  1. 1. Anti-doping – a legitimate effort? Elite athletes' perspectives on policy and practice

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan, GIH

    Author : Anna Qvarfordt; GIH. Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; Högskolan i Gävle.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Samhällsvetenskap Humaniora; Social Sciences Humanities; Anti-doping; Doping in sports; Legitimacy; Elite athletes; Compliance; WADA;

    Abstract : The global anti-doping enterprise in sport is a comprehensive system in which the athlete is at the centre of regulation, scrutiny and control. There is limited knowledge about the implications of this extensive control system for athletes and about how athletes perceive the system; little is known about possible consequences of these implications and perceptions for the legitimacy of the system.

  2. 2. Grading in physical education

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan, GIH

    Author : Lena Svennberg; GIH. Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; Högskolan i Gävle.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Samhällsvetenskap Humaniora; Social Sciences Humanities; physical education; assessment; movement qualities; criterion referenced; standards-based grading; internalised grading; gut-feeling; equity; Bernstein; Repertory Grid;

    Abstract : In the thesis the aim is to investigate different aspects of what teachers value when grading in Swedish physical education (PE) and to analyses how sociological background factors impact students’ grades. Grades in PE have included aspects other than those prescribed in the grading criteria, for instance motivation and effort. READ MORE

  3. 3. Effects of exercise and amino acid intake on mechanisms regulating protein synthesis and breakdown in human muscle

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan

    Author : Marcus Moberg; GIH. Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Resistance exercise; concurrent exericse; leucine; BCAA; mTORC1 signaling; protein synthesis; MuRF-1; PGC-1alpha; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : Skeletal muscle adapts differently to specific modes of exercise, where resistance training results in muscle growth and endurance training induces mitochondrial biogenesis. These are results of molecular events that occur after each exercise session, increasing the expression of specific genes and the rate of both synthesis and breakdown of protein. READ MORE

  4. 4. The significance of mitochondrial respiratory function in regulating oxygen uptake and performance in humans

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan, GIH

    Author : Daniele A. Cardinale; GIH. Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mitochondria; OXPHOS; p50mito; mitochondrial oxygen affinity; oxygen extraction; sex difference; hyperoxia; training; muscle metabolism; performance; HIIT; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : The mitochondrion is one of the most fascinating organelles of our cells which has kept and keeps researchers busy in studying its origin, the complex morphology, the numerous functions, the rapid adaptations to a variety of stimuli and its role in health and disease. Exercise challenges cellular homeostasis and skeletal muscle mitochondria greatly adapt to repeated bouts of exercise by increasing mitochondrial respiratory function and content to match energy requirements and to better sustain future perturbations induced by muscle contractions.
