Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

School physical education is a great means for the creation of skills and values of children and adolescents. The use of technological means to be able to expand knowledge and skills in digital technology supposes an increase in competence, while situations of reflection must be created on the saving of traditional resources such as paper, among other elements. Environmental sustainability is fundamental today and education from an early age implies the creation of habits that will continue in the future. The need arises to address a transversal framework coordinated in a multidisciplinary way, increasingly required, which will be the future of the services that will be demanded in the immediate future, in such an important group that undoubtedly requires a commitment accepted by all.

This Special Issue aims to create a point of reference in terms of technological innovation, education, knowledge transfer, and development of habits that help the environmental and educational sustainability of schoolchildren. It will explore the relationships between psychosocial factors and the association with different aspects related to physical education and sport. In addition, this specific population is characterized by the abandonment of the practice of physical activity due to multiple factors. The field of adolescence in relation to physical activity is increasingly important for public administrations, so we accept scientific review studies and descriptive studies, technical reports, and practical cases offered by research, science, and innovation. Special emphasis on methodology and planning also allows for new activities and working methods.

Inertial training is one of the most popular training methodologies in recent years and one of the objects of study in recent literature. The aim of this systematic review is to evaluate the current literature surrounding the chronic effect of rotational inertial devices on the physical capacities of team sports athletes through jumping performance, sprinting time, and change of direction performance. This systematic review was conducted in accordance with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) protocols. Three databases were screened up to January 2023. Eight studies were included in the final analysis. The results revealed the effectiveness of rotational inertial devices as flywheels or conic pulleys, showing significant improvements (from trivial to large effect size) in jump performances, significant improvements in some tests for change of direction ability and non-consistent results for sprint tests with significant improvements mainly in short distances. In conclusion, inertial training has been shown to be a useful way to improve performance in young athletes in team sports. Full article
