Step lengths were calculated by subtracting the mean of the 3 reconstructed contact-foot toe locations from each contact in the direction of

addition, soccer players perform more than 1000 activities, such as accelerations, decelerations, jumps, changes of direction, and others, in a match. 2 Therefore, the level of aerobic and anaerobic metabolism is crucial for the success of a player. 3 Reilly et al 4 have mentioned that explosive actions

Those involved at the time tell Katie that the staff support role was a step in the right direction; however, the meeting minutes that Katie consults demonstrate concerns that this individual had no decision-making autonomy or authority in

Differences in the directions of torque produced by motor units might be used by the nervous system to coordinate posture and movement. Here we report plantar flexion and abduction isometric torques exerted at the ankle by 158 motor units in the cat medial gastrocnemius (MG) muscle. In five cats, motor unit torque direction differed by an average of 10°. Torque direction was weakly correlated with unit contraction time in 3 of 5 experiments, with tetanic force in 3 of 5 experiments, and with conduction velocity in 1 of 5 experiments. The direction of whole muscle torque, however, was constant at all levels of MG activation produced in sural and crossed extension reflexes. Thus, although there is a range in the direction of torque produced by motor units in the cat MG, we find no evidence for the ordering of motor units according to torque direction during MG activation.

Sprinting, change of direction (COD), and jumps are fundamental capabilities to soccer performance. In fact, these capabilities are the most common actions of players when scoring a goal, assisting a teammate, or anticipating opponents’ behavior. 1 Furthermore, the average of players’ performance

Third, we acknowledge that further latent and unassessed psychological processes might have biased two or more dimensions in the same or opposite direction. Fourth, the latter observation holds particularly true as it
