Effect Of Counter-Movement Frequency On Performance in a Single Joint Maximal Jumping Task 2015 1193 Optimal performance in a maximal jumping task occurs when a countermovement is utilized prior to the concentric phase of the movement. Performance augmentation results from the near isometric behavior of the fascicles and storage of elastic energy i...
Analysis Of Variability In Ground Reaction Forces And Electromyography For Runners Of Different Ability 2018 515 Measures of movement variability have been linked to task performance, adaptability, and injury risk. Further understanding variability in running could help explain training adaptations and injury risks of the sport. This study investigated the vari...
Relationship Between Changes In Foot Strike Pattern And Indices Of Fatigue In A Maximal 800-Meter Run 2018 922 During faster, shorter distances, such as an 800-m middle distance, it is unclear whether runners are able to maintain a FF strike pattern. The purpose of this study was to evaluate changes in FSP throughout a maximal 800-m run. Twenty-one subjects (...
The Effects Of Movement Complexity On Relationships Among Foot Anthropometry And Jump Performance 2020 386 The purpose of this study was to investigate relationships between foot structure and jump performance and whether movement complexity (single joint jump compared to multi-joint jump) influences these relationships. Forty participants (20 men and 20 ...
Determining Factors Of Spin On Pitched Fastballs In Baseball – A Literature Review 2021 753 Baseball is a popular sport that is often referred to as “America’s game.” Of all the pitches thrown in a Major League Baseball season, more than half of them are fastballs. Three forces (gravity, drag, and Magnus force) determine the movement of a p...
The Effect Of Different Weight Plates On The Biomechanics Of The Bench Press 2022 484 Anecdotal evidence suggests that bumper plates impact lifts in powerlifting and weightlifting different than standard cast iron plates, but very few studies have investigated how bumper plates affect the biomechanics of any lift. The aim of this stud...
Investigation Into The Effects Of Playing Posture On Fatigue In Violinists And Violists 2021 499 Playing a musical instrument is a common pastime around the world and for some, it is a career and how they make their living. Musicians’ bodies are put under constant stress from playing an instrument. Statistics have suggested that upwards of 80% o...
The Relationship Between Plantarflexor Moment Arm, Muscle Activation Patterns And Gait Velocity In The Elderly 2019 534 Previous research suggests a link between the onset of functional dependence, mortality, and reductions in gait velocity among elderly, associated with effects of aging on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Yet underlying processes contributing...
