The minimal RMS value obtained was used for the normalization. First, the DNS–certified physiotherapist

Dependent variables included EMG onset latency, vertical jump height, and normalized ground reaction force (nGRF). Independent variables included KT

meaningful relative measures of TL for prognostic purposes is still required. 22 In the presence of a substantial association, simple ratios are well-recognized for failing to normalize the numerator variable (acute load) consistently for the denominator variable (chronic load). 23 In a follow-up study

-related differences in performance of athletic locomotor tasks have been observed between pre-pubertal children and young adults. During running and cutting tasks, children re-direct their momentum using larger impact forces (i.e., body weight-normalized ground reaction forces) than young adults ( Sigward, Pollard

In order to compare conditions and hand positions between participants, we normalized the activity of each muscle to the wide push-up on knees. Also, to compare push-ups on toes

Performance times were expressed in minutes and seconds, allowing conversion into segment-by-segment velocity, which could be normalized for the mean velocity within an event and into the CV of velocity within an event. In an event in which a given athlete

This protocol has previously been established in trials that investigate level gait. 13 , 32 Previous pilot testing revealed that any 1 of 6 different hip
