performance characteristics. In the first test block, all subjects performed an isokinetic trunk and shoulder rotation test, an isometric leg extension test, a countermovement jump test, and an incremental treadmill-running test after a standardized warm-up of 20 minutes. In the second test block, all

and complexity in the ambulatory tasks. Walking at a single speed on a treadmill is a good way of collecting data for a steady-state condition, but there are very few steady-state conditions in real-world ambulation. Walking in the real world is often over uneven and varied terrain, interspersed with

Thus, the aim of our study was to investigate the effect of CHO mouth rinse on time to exhaustion in a short duration and high-intensity exercise protocol performed on a treadmill.

-prone stroke survivors. Here, we define stable gait as gait that does not result into falls despite of perturbations. 6 In comparison to conventional treadmill training of gait stability, perturbation-based training (PBT) may offer a more ecologically valid training approach. Meaning that the exercises
