2 slow component. 2 This provides an intrinsic link between loss of muscle efficiency and development of fatigue. 2 , 3 In addition to a maximal ramp test, the conventional CP assessment requires athletes on repeated occasions to perform time-to-exhaustion (TTE) trials, commonly applied after a 24

Dynamic balance (DB) is the ability to maintain the center of mass over a stable base of support while performing a task. Core stability is considered an important aspect of DB, 1 , 2 and deficits in DB have been related to injuries in the athletic populations. 3 The Star Excursion Balance Test

performance tests to assess a player’s performance (e.g., the Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test Level 1 [Yo-Yo IR1] is used to test aerobic fitness and has previously been shown to correlate with high-intensity distance covered in a match, Castagna et al., 2009 ; the countermovement jump test is used to

exercise protocol consists of 2 maximal cycling tests (MAXtest) separated by 4 hours of rest. During this test, exercise performance and physiological variables can be obtained during the cycling bouts, while reaction times and subjective mood ratings before and after the 2 intensive efforts can be

Fundamental motor skills (FMS) are the building blocks to more complex movement patterns ( Clark & Metcalfe, 2002 ). FMS are often subdivided into include object control (now referred to in the Test of Gross Motor Development-3 [TGMD-3] as ball skills) and locomotor skills ( Gallahue, Ozumn

Similarly, semiprofessional players with good under-the-ball tackling ability on a standardized proficiency test were involved in a greater proportion of dominant tackles and missed a smaller proportion of tackles during match play. 5 These studies have highlighted the association between under

The mechanical properties of AFOs, such as stiffness (moment per degree) and energy efficiency (ratio of released energy to stored energy), have been characterized using various mechanical testing devices, 1 – 3 and their effects on gait in individuals with neuromuscular diseases have been

. We examine this by using previously published PA data (accelerometry and self-report) from a RCT ( Kaushal, Rhodes, Spence, & Meldrum, 2017 ). The RCT randomized new gym members into a control and experimental group ( Kaushal, Rhodes, Spence, & Meldrum, 2017 ). The purpose of that study was to test
