Physiological and Psychological Characteristics of Successful Combat Controller Trainees( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The USAF Combat Controller (CCT) training pipeline is extremely arduous and historically has an attrition rate of 70-80%. The primary objective of this study was to identify the physiological, psychological or demographical characteristics associated with successful progression through the CCT pipeline program. Our findings revealed the following mean characteristics of 109 CCTs who completed Phase I of the pipeline and achieved their 3-level rating: 23 years old, 1.8 m tall, 81 kg, 12% body fat, VO2max of 59 ml/kg/min, vertical jump of 62 cm, able to generate 11.4 W/kg peak power and 9.3 W/Kg mean power during Wingate tests, overall mental toughness rating of 8 (out of 10) with high levels of extraversion and conscientiousness and low levels of neuroticism. Football was the most popular competitive sport played in high school, followed by track, wrestling, and baseball. These results may prove useful in refining the selection criteria and in designing training for CCT trainees
Adaptations to a New Physical Training Program in the Combat Controller Training Pipeline( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The USAF combat controller (CCT) training pipeline is extremely arduous and historically has a high attrition rate of 70-80%. The primary objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of incorporating an RHPF-developed physical fitness training program into the combat controller (CCT) 5-level training physical fitness program. Modifications to the program were principally aimed at reducing overtraining and overuse injury, educating trainees and cadre on how to train smarter, and transitioning from traditional to "functional" PT. Trainees were tested immediately prior to and after eight weeks of training in accordance with the revised guidelines. Nearly all fitness parameters were significantly higher at the end of the eight weeks. In addition, the overall injury rate fell by 67%. The combination of higher fitness and fewer injuries effectively doubled the graduation rate from CCT training in the eight classes following the new guidance versus the eight classes immediately prior to these interventions
Is Performance of Intermittent Intense Exercise Enhanced by Use of a Commercial Palm Cooling Device?( Book )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this study was to determine if using the Core Control (trademark) Rapid Thermal Exchange (RTX), a commercial palm cooling device, during active rest periods of multiple set training, is an effective means to increase performance. Ten subjects completed three interval running tests on a human-powered treadmill. In those performances subjects completed eight 30-second intervals at a hard/fast pace followed by a 90-second walking or light jogging recovery period. During the recovery period, the subjects placed their hand on one of three media: the RTX held at 15 degrees Centigrade (R), a 15 degree Centigrade standard refrigerant gel pack (P), or nothing at all (C). Although there were differences in core temperature (Tc), subjective heat stress ratings, and distance and power generated between intervals, there were no significant differences among treatments for any of these variables nor was the interaction effect of interval-treatment found to be significant. The authors conclude that the RTX, in its current iteration, is ineffective at improving performance and/or mitigating thermal stress during high-intensity intermittent exercise

The Influence of 8-Weeks of Whey Protein and Leucine Supplementation on Physical and Cognitive Performance( Book )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study was designed to investigate the ability of 8-weeks of whey protein and leucine supplementation to enhance physical and cognitive performance and body composition. It was further designed to examine the impact of such supplementation on circulating levels of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR). Thirty moderately fit subjects completed a modified Air Force fitness test, a PC-based cognition test, and a Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) scan for body composition before and after supplementing their daily diet with either whey protein and leucine or a caloric-equivalent placebo (P). The WPL group showed greater increases in strength then the P group over the 8 weeks on bench press and push-ups. Bench press performance increased significantly by 3.9% from week 1 to week 8 in the WPL group, whereas the increase in the P group (1.4%) was not significant. Push-up performance increased significantly by 5.4 push-ups (12.8%) for WPL while P showed a non-significant increase of 3.3 pushups (7.6%). Total mass, fat-free mass, and lean body mass all increased significantly (by 1.0 kg, 0.7 kg and 0.7kg, respectively) in the WPL group but showed no change in the placebo group. No differences were observed within or between groups for crunches, chin-ups, 3-mile run time, or cognition. We were unable to assay mTOR levels of our subjects accurately enough to make firm determinations regarding the influence of whey and leucine on them. We conclude that supplementing with whey protein and leucine may provide an advantage to airmen whose job performance benefits from increased upper body strength and/or lean body mass
Acceleration Tolerance After Ingestion of a Commercial Energy Drink( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study examined the ability of a commercial energy drink to enhance acceleration tolerance, strength under G-load, and cognitive performance immediately prior to and following acceleration exposure. Eight experienced centrifuge subjects completed three separate experimental acceleration exposures following ingestion of 11.5 ml/kg body weight of a)a commercial energy drink, providing 5.0 mg caffeine/kg body weight, b) a commercial energy drink without caffeine or c) placebo. The acceleration exposures consisted of a relaxed gradual onset run to peripheral light loss, a rapid onset run to 6.0 G for 15 s, and a simulated air combat maneuver (SACM) run of repeated alternations between 4.5 G for 15 seconds and 7G for 15 seconds until volitional exhaustion. Cognitive tests were performed prior to and after the acceleration profiles. Relaxed G-tolerance was significantly higher under the caffeine session, whereas SACM duration did not differ among the drink conditions. Hip adductor muscle strength was lower during the placebo session than during the other two sessions. Cognitive reaction time was faster post-acceleration than pre-acceleration, and faster under the caffeine condition than the placebo condition. We conclude that consumption of a caffeine-based energy drink enhances relaxed G-tolerance and may increase strength, but does not impact acceleration duration. We further conclude that cognitive reaction time is improved by the caffeinated drink, as well as by the physical exertion during the acceleration exposure

Effects of a Commercial Drink on Acceleration Tolerance and Cognitive Performance( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the ability of a commercial energy drink to enhance acceleration tolerance, strength under G-load, and cognitive performance immediately prior to and following acceleration exposure. Eight experienced centrifuge subjects completed three separate experimental acceleration exposures following ingestion of 11.5 ml/kg body weight of (a) a caffeine-carbohydrate drink, providing 5.0 mg caffeine/kg body weight, (b) a carbohydrate-only drink or (c) placebo. Each exposure consisted of a relaxed gradual onset run to peripheral light loss, a rapid onset run to 6.0 G for 15 s, and a simulated air combat maneuver (SACM) run of repeated alternations between 4.5 G for 15 seconds and 7 G for 15 seconds until volitional exhaustion. Cognitive tests were performed prior to and after the acceleration profiles. Relaxed G-tolerance was significantly higher under the caffeine session, whereas SACM duration did not differ among the drink conditions. Hip adductor muscle strength was lower during the placebo session than during the other two sessions. Cognitive reaction time was faster post-acceleration than pre-acceleration, and faster under the caffeine condition than the placebo condition. We conclude that consumption of a caffeine-based energy drink enhances relaxed G-tolerance and may increase strength, but does not impact acceleration duration. We further conclude that cognitive reaction time is improved by the caffeine drink, as well as by the acceleration exposure
