The single-leg squat task is used as a rehabilitative exercise 1 , 2 or as a screening tool 3 , 4 for the functional movement of the lower limb. The presence of pathology influences the way in which the single-leg squat is performed. On performing the single-leg squat, individuals with

, and whole body, and were <2% in the lower limbs. To minimize the interobserver variation, all analyses were made by the same technician. Biochemical Markers Measurements All blood samples were obtained from the participants between 08:00 and 09:30 AM after an overnight fast. Blood samples were

quantified in terms of distance covered. Additional outcome measures in rating of perceived exertion (RPE) and a visual analog scale (VAS) measure of lower-limb muscle soreness were also recorded to reflect the perceptual influence of playing surface. Participants Fifteen amateur male soccer players (22

Challenge ( https://simtk.org/projects/kneeloads ). In this study, we defined an MSK model of the pelvis and right lower limb that incorporates intersegmental contact variables. The objectives for this work were to quantify prediction error of tibial compression against a gold standard and to use this model

ethics approval. Instrumentation This study used six 100-Hz inertial sensors (Nanotrak; Catapult Sports, Docklands, Australia) to track trunk, pelvis, and lower limb kinematics. Inertial sensors are a validated tool for kinematic analyses ( Cuesta-Vargas, Galán-Mercant, & Williams, 2010 ; Steins, Dawes

lower limb exercises ( 30 ) in sets with 10–12 repetitions organized in 3 circuits: sit-to-stand exercise, heel raises, forward lunges, lateral step-up exercise, and bridging exercise. Exercises were conducted in a controlled manner, with a slow to moderate speed, and a 2-minute break between sets

The purpose of this study was, therefore, to assess the effects of varying levels of compression applied via lower-limb CG on multiday cycling performance at typical levels of EIMD

strategy based on vertical ground reaction impulse (vGRI). This variable represents the cumulative load applied vertically to the lower limb throughout stance, but does not require real-time inverse dynamics calculations, establishing a low barrier to adoption. We theorize that vGRI could be an effective
