segmental longitudinal axes. For the supporting limb, while not exactly parallel with the rotational axis of the pirouette, these longitudinal axes are most closely aligned with the vertical. The frictional torque around the vertical as the foot rotates against the ground could translate to joints along the

induced flexion; attached to the posterior portion of the head, it induced extension; and attached to the sides of the head, it induced left and right lateral bend. The wire (nonresistant fishing wire; Spiderwire; EZ Braid, Columbia, SC) was chosen due to its low friction at the pulley interface and light

research team warmed-up the KICKR by riding for 10 minutes at 100 W and then performed the “spindown” through the TrainerRoad software, which is a zero-offset calibration of the strain gauges based on bearing and belt friction. The zero offset procedure of the SRM was performed according to the

StrokeAngs (ie, distance for hand to travel) compared with high-point players inhibiting their ability to match the short recovery times of other groups. Minimizing RecTime has performance benefits, as it reduces the time in which the frictional resistance between wheels and court is the main force acting on

consistency. The anchors at the beginning and end of each strip of tape were laid on the skin with no tension. Then, each strip of tape was applied with moderate tension (20%–35%) to the participant’s skin. After the tape was applied, it was rubbed, creating friction and heat to activate the adhesive so that

.6 (1.5) Cycling Participants completed 20 × 5-s maximal sprints on a friction-braked cycle ergometer 10 s, 30 s AR: Peak (∼4%) and mean (∼26%) power output higher in 30 s, with lower measures of fatigue, RPE, and end [BLa]. Contrary, VO 2 , RER, and HR measures were higher in 10 s in both the work and

the sensor–finger friction. The signals from the transducers were sent to a PCB 484B11 signal conditioner and digitized at 200 Hz using a 16-bit National Instruments PCI-6052E analog-to-digital card (National Instruments, Austin, TX). The sensor reading was zeroed with the subject’s fingers resting on

the turn, the dancer must exert a torque on the floor resulting in the production of a turning motion. The speed of the turn, which depends on the amount of friction with the ground, is also an important characteristic of the constraints on the movement and is controlled through the vertical impulse
