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

attempts on an analogue handgrip dynamometer (Smedley’s dynamometer; Scandidact, Odder, Denmark) while standing. The dynamometer was adjusted to hand size. The result was divided by body weight for analysis. 20 Muscular power was measured by a vertical jump test as the highest vertical displacement (in

activated during a jumping task. Repetitive impacts from vertical jump landings in jumping sport athletes have been associated with injury, as the musculoskeletal system must attenuate the mechanical shock during contact. 7 , 8 Elevated peak tibial accelerations (TAs) values might, therefore, indicate an

The authors hypothesized that (1) all RST groups will experience improvements in sprint and COD performance, and they will also likely obtain enhancements in horizontal and vertical jump performance, and (2) the groups that performed RST with horizontally

In American football (AF), body size, strength, and power are important factors for performance. 1 Previous studies indicated that 1-repetition maximum (1RM), sprint performance, and vertical jumping ability are important predictors for success in AF. 2 Starters are stronger, more powerful, and
