OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of age and feedback on submaximal isometric force control abilities in the knee extensors. DESIGN Analysis of a force control task in a quasi-experimental design. BACKGROUND The ability to control submaximal strength is important to accomplish activities of daily living. The purpose of this study was to investigate(More)
The purpose of this experiment was to examine the effects of an incline during distance running on selected metabolic and biomechanical variables. Six (4 males, 2 females) trained distance runners (age 27.2 +/- 7.8 yr; VO2max 63.7 +/- 7.5 mL x kg-1 x min-1) performed three 35-min runs at speeds corresponding to each individual's anaerobic threshold. The(More)
Twenty-four collegiate distance runners and 20 power athletes (sprinters and jumpers) of various success levels were tested on a number of physiological and psychological parameters. Multiple regression analysis indicated that physiological factors could explain over 81% of the variance related to successful distance running while physiological and(More)
Sixteen sound Labrador retriever and Labrador retriever cross-breed adult dogs were evaluated for symmetry while in a trot gait using a two-dimensional motion analysis system. Reflective markers were placed at selected joint centers. Each dog had the right side and then the left side videotaped while in the trot gait. The markers on the videotape were then(More)
INTRODUCTION Since the invention of the game of basketball by Dr. James Naismith in 1891, the game has undergone many changes. Over the years, the game evolved fiom a slower, more deliberate play into an intense game of strength, stamina, speed, agility and, most importantly, shooting ability (Brancazio, 1984). The two-hand set shot was the common method of(More)
