The Effect of Two Days of Velocity-Specific Isokinetic Training on Torque Production
Asymmetries in the Preparation and Control of Manual Aiming Movements
Abstract Two experiments were conducted to determine if typical right hand target aiming advantages could be reduced or eliminated by increasing the spatial demands of the aiming task. In Experiment…
A kinematic analysis of high-speed treadmill sprinting over a range of velocities.
The results indicated that at slower velocities, there were differences in the stride characteristics and lower-extremity kinematics while sprinting on a treadmill, suggesting that velocITIES greater than 90% should be used selectively during treadmill training.

The main finding was that the memory of the height of stairs was enhanced when information about stair height was gained by walking up a short flight of stairs compared to when information is gained by vision alone.
Short-term heart rate variability during a cognitive challenge in young and older adults.

It is suggested that procedures presently used to start the Olympic sprint events afford runners closer to the starter the advantage of hearing the "go" signal louder; consequently, they react sooner but not more strongly than their competitors.
Evidence for Programmed and Visually Controlled Phases of the Triple Jump Approach Run

The purpose of this experiment was to examine the approach run of the triple jump. Specifically the presence and _ . absence of the takeoff board was ^ ^ ^ manipulated in an attempt to identify the…
Teaching Foundational Aquatic Skills to Children in Open Water Environments
Learning to swim in a swimming pool might not prepare water competence sufficiently for different aquatic environments. The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of teaching children…
Physical Fitness, Cognitive Function, and Health-Related Quality of Life in Older Adults
It has been suggested that physical and cognitive functions are associated with health-related quality of life (HRQL). Previous work examining the relationship between physical ability and HRQL is…
