editorials. E.H. Arnold concluded in the American Physical Education Review that “national or international competition is a menace to womanhood,” because of the anatomical and functional “peculiarities” of the female body. 54 He argued that a woman’s stature, strength, weight, and wider pelvis made

remember him saying his treatment relied upon applying pressure to areas around the pelvis and that this was normal. “So when he went down there, I just told myself it was normal, that he knows what he’s doing and don’t be a baby. . . . I remember laying there and thinking ‘Is this OK? This doesn’t seem

within 20% of the world record for their age within the previous two years, at the time of recruitment. Univariate analysis was carried out with adjustment for age. The bone mineral density (BMD, g/cm 2 ) in the legs, spine, pelvis, and hip was not different between any of the groups. Total body BMD was

). 8 The principle steps of the lesson are few and well-structured, making it easy to comprehend. Lesson goals are to reorganize the coordination mode of the degrees of freedom (DOFs) of the spine and hips between the head and pelvis and integrate that experience into the body image. The strategy is

Coordination variability between the pelvis and trunk was lower in runners with current low back pain compared

Based on this qualitative study, the ATM process is clearly structured as a motor-learning process as it contains the classic elements of repetition

different ways of performing the same action (e.g., deploying slightly different postures or initiating the movement from different body parts, such as reaching for an object by first shifting the pelvis rather than first extending the arm) and then feeling which of these perhaps slightly different ways of

were observed to push with legs to shuttle the body cranially to upright; when prone, they showed spontaneous responses to bulges in the uterine wall , including bending one knee while pushing with the other knee or lifting the pelvis to climb over. In other words, the researchers observed adaptation

prior to the rotation ( Dietrich, 2016 ; Shim, 2016 ). Another characteristic of the movement is the twisting of the upper body in a direction opposed to that of the lower part of the body (legs and pelvis) which, when released, creates elastic energy thereby adding to rotation speed. In addition, the
