quadriceps and calf muscle injuries, groin/pubis injuries, and anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions seem to be more prone to sustain a hamstring injury. 7 Thus, previous HSIs and a history of injuries in adjacent regions amount to 2 independent HSI risk factors in this study. The reference values for

. We did not quantify liner densities of the tested helmets and therefore did not explore the relationship between liner density and peak headform acceleration. The UOF helmet shell sustained a fracture when impacted against the equestrian hazard anvil. During the UOF helmet right-side impact, the

these issues. The risk of injury in professional football is high. Research into injuries sustained in English professional football reported that on average, players suffer from 1.3 injuries per season ( Hawkins & Fuller, 1999 ; Hawkins, Hulse, Wilkinson, Hodson, & Gibson, 2001 ). Moreover, research

Caffeine, a trimethylxanthine, is a ubiquitous socially acceptable drug with no apparent long-term health effects. 1 Although there is some evidence that caffeine may improve single 2 and repeated sprint activities, 3 effects are most consistently observed in sustained bouts of high
