concern in healthy young adults, 30 especially since walking workstation users may use the desk for support if needed. The gait variables that did exhibit statistically significant change between the baseline and the tasked trials only revealed differences across 1 type of task. Relative to baseline

the study. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of discrete versus continuous trials, on overground walking speed and walking speed variability, in healthy young adult males and females. We hypothesized that walking speed variability would be higher during discrete gait

-based differences may diminish as neighborhood crime increases and has a more pervasive effect on communities. 26 Studies have shown inconsistent relationships between crime and physical activity for adolescent boys and girls and young adult men and women. 27 – 29 We propose that inconsistencies in the empirical

social networking site. Young adults were selected to replicate previous studies ( Chang & Etnier, 2009b ; Pontifex et al., 2009 ) and to provide a rigorous test of the comparative effectiveness of acute aerobic and resistance exercise on cognition function. All participants met the following inclusion

Rate Thirty young adults (15 female; age: 22.47 ± 3.69 years; BMI: 22.43 ± 1.87 kg/m 2 ) participated in this study. The overall, male, and female ECG-measured resting HRs were 70.27 ± 14.10 beats per minute (bpm), 64.60 ± 6.65 bpm, and 75.93 ± 17.28 bpm, respectively, and maximum ECG HRs were 187

displacements or strains are present even without active muscle contraction. We hypothesized that passive knee flexion would induce distal tendon displacement, with significantly nonuniform motion and strain observed through the depth of the tendon and along its length. Methods Twenty healthy young adults (aged
