If you control your mind, you control everything.

Welcome to 2020. This year has been very different indeed due to the special circumstances we all have to live with, as a consequence of the coronavirus (COVID-19). All events in nearly all fields around the world were cancelled or went virtual. And here we are, heading to our first virtual ECSS Congress. Perhaps, that will be my most important moment in 2020 in which I will present (virtually) the main findings from my PhD dissertation and complete a huge chapter of my life, starting in 2015, completing the study and defending it in 2018, and now presenting it in front of the international audience.

This year, I am more motovated than ever, with the words and my new motto 'If you control your mind, you control everything', I am now starting working on new exciting scientific projects with my colleagues, and I have multiple goals for the upcoming years.

So far, I have published four peer-reviewed articles as a lead author or co-author, and I am accepted to speak at the 25th Anniversary Congress of the ECSS in October.

More studies and sports events are coming. Stay in touch by following me on the social media (links are available at the bottom of this page).

The height was recorded to the nearest 1 cm using a height measure, body mass was recorded to within an accuracy of 0.1 kg by using Tanita RD953BK, and waist, arm, thigh and calf circumferencee were measured to the nearest 0.1 cm with the Lufkin W606PM tape measure. Skinfolds were measured by using the Lange Skinfold Caliper to the nearest 1 mm. The body fat % was calculated by using the Jackson & Pollock's equations, and the skeletal muslce mass % was calculated by using the Lee et al.'s equations, which are commonly applied in research.
