The effect of carbohydrate mouth rinse on endurance performance
Stuparič, Jan ; Vilikus, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Větrovská, Renata (referee)
This bachelor thesis is focused on the effect of carbohydrate mouth rinse (CMR) on endurance performance. CMR is considered to be one of the effective nutritional strategies that increases endurance performance in duration from 30-90 minutes. The aim of this thesis was to determine whether CMR can improve performance in a running 30-minute test with self-selected pace and set rate of perceived exertion. All of that without any prior significant influence on nutritional status. Two trials were realized - with and without CMR. Total distance covered during a stated time period was compared, as well as the rate of subjective feelings during the physical activity in the sense of pleasure-displeasure using the Feeling scale. The heart rate was compared as well. Under specified conditions the ergogenic effect of CMR was not confirmed, on the contrary 6 of 8 participants performed worst in the trial with CMR compared to one without CMR. Five participants mentioned enhanced feelings of pleasure to some extent, but the differences were minimal. Regarding heart rate little difference were indicated in the case of average heart rate, when higher values were detected in six participants. However, overall significant effect of CMR on heart rate was not shown. For the efficient implication of CMR into the...

Title: Effect of 12 week intervention programme on selected components of body composition of seniors Objectives: The main objective of this thesis is to determine whether the 12 week intervention programme can positively affect the selected components of body composition of seniors. Methods: For the needs of this thesis the measurements of body composition by using bioimpedance methods was used in this thesis. The questionnaire was used for gathering needful information concerning the implementation of physical activity of quality of life. Based on the collected data the 12 week intervention programme was recommended to seniors. After 12 weeks the output measurement and comparison of input and output data was done. The changes of maximum hand grip measured by using hand-held digital dynamometer were observed. Results: In the term of 12 week intervention, this study has not show either significant changes in amount of free fat mass of seniors, who increased the weekly volume of physical activity or significant changes in the percentage of fat mass of individuals, who performed aerobic activity. The study proved significant decrease in ECM/BCM ratio of individuals, who have gone through the resistance exercise. In general, the tendency of qualitative improvement of body composition of seniors was...
