Increases in joint range of motion may be beneficial in both improving performance and reducing the risk of injury. The purpose of this study was to investigate short-term changes in passive hip flexion (HF) and extension (HE) after foam rolling (FR) and roller massage (RM) durations of 60 and 120s. Ten recreationally active men (27.6 ± 2.4 years old; 164.8(More)
The present work aims at studying the effect of heating patterns generated by therapeutic ultrasound (US) insonation on tissue mimicking device called Phantom. With this purpose, it was constructed a cylindrical calorimeter (80 mm height and 42 mm diameter) which was filled with muscle mimic phantom, for acquisition of temperature an array of thermocouples(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of sex, exercise order, and rest interval on neuromuscular fatigue resistance for an alternated strength training sequence of bench press (BP) and leg press (LP) exercises. METHODS Twelve women and 16 men, both recreationally trained, performed four sessions in a random order: 1) BP(More)
BACKGROUND Foam rolling (FR) is a common intervention utilized for the purpose of acutely increasing range-of-motion without subsequent decreases in performance. FR is characterized as an active technique which subject performs upon themselves. Thus, it is believed that the accumulated fatigue can influence whether the task can be continued. PURPOSE To(More)
BACKGROUND The Functional Movement Screen (FMS™) is a battery of tests designed to assess movement competency; the overhead deep squat test, specifically, has been shown to be an accurate predictor of overall FMS™ scores. Self-massage (SM) is a ubiquitous warm-up utilized to increase joint range of motion and, therefore, may be effective for improving(More)
BACKGROUND Foam rollers, or other similar devices, are a method for acutely increasing range of motion, but in contrast to static stretching, do not appear to have detrimental effects on neuromuscular performance. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of different volumes (60 and 120 seconds) of foam rolling of the hamstrings(More)
