    Training volume and amateur cyclists’ health: a six-month follow-up from coinciding with a highdemand cycling event
    (Routledge Taylor & Francis Group, 2021-06-05) Oviedo-Caro, Miguel Angel; Mayolas-Pi, Carmen; París-García, Federico; Murillo Fuentes, Alfonso; Reverter-Masia, Joaquín; Bueno-Antequera, Javier; Munguía Izquierdo, Diego; Legaz-Arrese, Alejandro
    This study aimed to analyse the longitudinal association of amateur cycling training volume with health by comparing the proximity of participation in a high-demand cycling event. Variations in cycling training volume, behavioural cardiometabolic risk factors, and physical and psychosocial health were examined. Cyclists decreased their training volume by approximately 40% and their total physical activity volumes by approximately 20%, while controls maintained (~5%). A time*group interaction was found for men’s physical conditioning, body mass index and anxiety and, independent of gender, for behavioural cardiometabolic risk factors. Variation in cycling training volume was positively correlated with variation in physical conditioning and total physical activity and negatively correlated with variation in body mass index. The high level of cycling training volume developed at the time coinciding with a high demand cycling event predisposes to better physical health and behavioural cardiometabolic risk factors, without negatively affect psychosocial health, compared with six month later.

    Exercise Addiction Stability and Health Effects. A 6-Month Follow-up Postcompetition Study in Amateur Endurance Cyclists
    (American Society of Addiction Medicine, 2022) Bueno-Antequera, Javier; Oviedo-Caro, Miguel Ángel; Legaz-Arrese, Alejandro; París-García, Federico; Guillén-Correas, Roberto; Munguía Izquierdo, Diego; Mayolas-Pi, Carmen
    Objective: To study the longitudinal stability of exercise addiction and its health effects in apparently healthy amateur endurance cyclists from pre- to 6-month post-competition. Methods: In total, 330 (30 women) adult cyclists were divided into 4 groups based on scores on the Exercise Addiction Inventory at both periods: nonrisk (n=262, 79.1%), transient (n=35, 10.6%), emerging (n=14, 4.2%) and persistent (n=20, 6.1%). Results: The prevalence of high-risk exercise addiction was reduced postcompetition (16.7% vs 10.3%, p=0.017). Of the cyclists with a high precompetition risk of exercise addiction, 63.6% (35/55) had a transient addiction associated with favorable effects on mental quality of life (effect size [ES]=0.52, 95% confidence interval: [0.20, 0.86]) and sleep quality (ES=0.50 [0.89, 0.12]) and avoided the worsening of depression symptom severity compared to the remaining groups (ES range=0.51–0.65). The 5.1% (14/275) of cyclists with a precompetition low risk of exercise addiction presented emerging exercise addiction that was associated with a worsened mental quality of life compared to the remaining groups (ES ranged 0.59–0.91), sleep quality compared to the nonrisk (ES=0.56 [0.02, 1.10]) and transient (ES=0.72 [1.36, 0.08]) groups and anxiety symptom severity compared to the persistent group (ES=0.51 [1.20, 0.19]). Conclusions: Exercise addiction had a marked transitory component at 6-month postcompetition with associated health benefits in amateur endurance cyclists.
