The linear force–velocity (F–V) relationship is frequently used to evaluate the maximal capacities of active muscles to produce force ( F 0 ), velocity ( V 0 ), and power (P max ) during a variety of tasks (vertical jump, bench press throw [BPT], isokinetic exercises, etc). 1 – 4 The F–V slope (ie

; Smith, Shutz, Smoll, & Ptacek, 1995 ). As such, these mental skills may help athletes persevere despite challenges. Though previous research has not examined the relation of mental skills to grit, scholarship on the relationship between mental skills use and mental toughness may provide some insights

characteristics of the sample are described using the means and standard deviations (SDs) of the continuous variables. The normality of the sample was examined using the Shapiro-Wilk test. The relationships between the different physical activity and exercise capacity variables, including the BODE index, the CAT

/relatives, places of recreation ( Smith & Sylvestre, 2001 ); and malls, cafes, and restaurants ( Chudyk et al., 2015 ; Michael et al., 2006 ). Research has shown that active travel is beneficial for physical health. For example, Vancampfort et al. ( 2018 ) examined the relationship between active travel and

further in the anterior direction of the SEBT, no difference in posterior reaches was found when compared to the YBT, suggesting posterior reaches are comparable with existing literature. To the authors’ knowledge there has yet to be a study which assesses the relationship between concentric hip abductor

Scapular motion impairments such as decreased upward rotation, external rotation, and posterior tilting have been thought to contribute to reduce the AHD. 3 , 4 , 9 In addition, alteration of the scapular movements negatively affects the rotator cuff muscle length–tension relationship during arm elevation

attempt has been made to determine whether game performance statistics are related to key theoretical and empirical factors of sport expertise such as visual anticipation. Better understanding of the relationship between testable attributes, such as visual anticipation, and batting performance statistics

interorganizational relationships (IR), which Babiak and Thibault ( 2008 ) defined as “voluntary, close, long-term, planned strategic action between two or more organizations with the objective of serving mutually beneficial purposes in a problem domain” (p. 282). The literature overall emphasizes IR as purposive

. Movement velocity is dependent on both the magnitude of the load overcome and the voluntary intent of the athlete to move that load. 15 Thus, recent studies have established a very close relationship between movement velocity and the percentage of the 1-repetition maximum (%1RM) for a variety of exercises

ballcarriers’ chest and shoulders and fewer than 25% of tackles were made at the torso region. 5 Tackles made at the shoulder and chest region are commonly referred to as “over-the-ball” or “smother tackles.” Research investigating the relationships between match-play tackle characteristics and outcomes found
