based on the direction traveled by the player including the number of accelerations (−45° to 45°), decelerations (−135° to 135°), and changes of direction (COD; −135° to −45° for left and 45° to 135° for right COD) overall and at high (COD velocity >3.5 m·s −2 ) intensities. Jumps were also detected

conducted for the dominant and non-dominant leg separately for each soccer player and the swimmer. Furthermore, to test if the type of sport influenced postural control, the data for the static and dynamic tasks in AP and ML direction was analyzed in a 2 (sports type: soccer, swimming) × 3 (age group: U13

The mean value of the 3 test trials was used for data analysis. 26 Lateral Step-Down Test The lateral step-down test is a clinical test used to quantify movement quality during a functional task. 27 A 20-cm-high step was used for the test, and the

accuracy ( Kolovelonis & Goudas, 2018 ). Data Handling and Statistical Analyses Two calibration indexes (i.e., accuracy and bias) were used. Calibration bias, an index of the direction of the calibration, was computed as the difference between predicted and actual performance in each test. Positive bias

The physical demands of rugby league require players to perform high-intensity efforts that include high-speed running, sprinting, changing direction, tackling, and wrestling. 1 These characteristics are essential for players to succeed 1 and should be central to rugby league conditioning

As an alternative to the conventional manipulations used in previous studies, with the aid of computer simulation or willful actions being performed, for example, the design of three different garments were altered to disguise advance cues or deceive

Therefore, it could be suggested that trunk muscles are required for both the quality and safety of movement. It was reported that there is an increase in trunk muscle activity in
