a randomized, double-blind, placebo (PLA)-controlled crossover design. Participants visited the laboratory on four occasions. The first visit was to familiarize participants with the 8-km treadmill TT, countermovement vertical jump (CMVJ), and drop jump (DJ). Participants practiced both jump types

fatigue, the acute responses of elite athletes to specific workouts (ie, technical, tactical, or physical training sessions) seem to be one of the most frequently examined topics. For example, Weakley et al 3 reported distinct vertical jump, perceptual, metabolic, and hormonal responses to traditional

school: (1) vertical jump (VJ; jump from a squatting position at the start) and (2) standing long jump (SLJ; jump as far as probable from a standing position). Both of these tests assess lower body explosive power. The following tests were also administered: (3) small ball throw (SBT) (1 kg) (SBT; with

a drop vertical jump (DVJ) compared with females. 3 These findings suggest that females tend to adopt a landing strategy that underutilizes the hip extensors and may contribute to increased frontal plane knee loading. Collectively, this evidence has led to research aimed at developing a more hip

including the tests for 6-min walk distance, knee extension force, vertical jump height, and grip strength. In addition, a test–retest reliability analysis was performed. Methods Cohort Description Cross-sectional baseline data of the Estrogenic Regulation of Muscle Apoptosis study were analyzed. The study

was constrained by the summer break within the ECCE term and therefore the pilot was six weeks in duration. Due to this short timeframe, only four FMS (two locomotor skills: run and vertical jump; two object control skills: catch and overhand throw) were included in the pilot program. Educators

all performed a single-leg drop vertical jump on their dominant foot and were categorized into groups by knee alignment in the frontal plane. This jump consisted of 2 stages: (1) single-leg landing after dropping from a 40-cm box and (2) single-leg landing after a maximal vertical jump. The procedure
