Comparison of shoulder rotation range of motion in professional tennis players with and without history of shoulder pain.
In professional tennis players, limited IR ROM rather than a GIRD seems to be associated with shoulder pain history, duration of tennis practice and the players' age, when compared to a similar cohort with no history of shoulder pain. Expand
Analysis of the relation between throwing speed and throwing accuracy in team-handball according to instruction
It is advisable for experts’ speed to be close to maximum speed since it does not seem to have a significant effect on accuracy of the throw, while the novice group was sensitive to instructions for reducing throwing speed and increasing accuracy when instructions emphasized accuracy. Expand
Trunk Stability, Trunk Strength and Sport Performance Level in Judo
Few and low significant correlations were found between strength, endurance and stability parameters, which suggests that trunk strength and endurance are not limiting factors for trunk stability in competitive judokas and support the importance of trunk extensor strength and trunk stability against forward perturbations in elite judo performance.

What COP and Kinematic Parameters Better Characterize Postural Control in Standing Balance Tasks?
In the kinematic signal mVel, PE and DFA had good intrasession reliability values in unstable conditions and the measures calculated using derived data had better intrasessions reliability values. Expand
Impact of a competition with two consecutive matches in a day on physical performance in young tennis players.
Physical impairments occurred in neuromuscular performance variables involving lower and upper limbs the day after playing a competition with 2 consecutive matches on the same day and need to be taken into consideration when planning tournament schedules for young tennis players. Expand
Sports-related testing protocols are required to reveal trunk stability adaptations in high-level athletes.
Judokas and kayakers obtained better results than recreational athletes only in those tests designed according to the specific demands of each sport, which means specific-sport training induces specific trunk stability adaptations, which are not revealed through nonspecific tests. Expand
Age and sex-related upper body performance differences in competitive young tennis players
The present results suggest that shoulder strength, medicine ball throws and serve speed increased along with age in young elite tennis players of both sexes, however, a decreased range of motion and bilateral deficit for glenohumeral internal rotation is evident in male under-15 tennis players.

Manual Dexterity and Intralimb Coordination Assessment to Distinguish Different Levels of Impairment in Boccia Players with Cerebral Palsy
New sport-specific coordination tests to assess impaired MD and ILC in boccia players are designed to quantify to what extent their coordination is impaired compared to a control group (CG) without neurological impairments. Expand
In recent years, several works have explored variability using different approaches, trying to describe the variations in motor movement. Traditionally, movement variability was regarded as a systemExpand
How much trunk control is affected in adults with moderate-to-severe cerebral palsy?
It is confirmed that TC is significantly affected in CP adults compared with controls without CP of similar age, but they present more difficulties to perform dynamic tasks, and it would be recommend including dynamic in addition to static conditions to obtain a comprehensive assessment of TC impairment in adults with moderate-to-severe CP.
