ACUTE EFFECTS OF STATIC STRETCHING ON PEAK TORQUE IN WOMEN
TLDR
Overall, these findings indicated that static stretching impairs maximal force production, and strength and conditioning professionals should consider this before incorporating static stretching in preperformance activities. Expand
THE ACUTE EFFECTS OF A CAFFEINE‐CONTAINING SUPPLEMENT ON STRENGTH,MUSCULAR ENDURANCE, AND ANAEROBIC CAPABILITIES
TLDR
The results indicated that there was a significant (p < 0.05) increase in BP 1RM for the SUPP group, but not for the PLAC group, and the caffeine-containing supplement may be an effective supplement for increasing upper-body strength and, therefore, could be useful for competitive and recreational athletes who perform resistance training. Expand
The acute effects of static stretching on peak torque, mean power output, electromyography, and mechanomyography
TLDR
The decreases in PT and EMG amplitude for the unstretched limb suggested that the stretching-induced decreases may be due to a central nervous system inhibitory mechanism. Expand
Mechanomyographic amplitude and frequency responses during dynamic muscle actions: a comprehensive review
TLDR
There is convincing evidence that during dynamic muscle actions, the M MG signal provides valid information regarding muscle function, and this argument is supported by consistencies in the MMG literature, such as the close relationship between M MG amplitude and power output and a linear increase in MMG amplitude with concentric torque production. Expand
Effect of mathematical modeling on the estimation of critical power.
TLDR
These findings support previous studies that have indicated that in many cases CP overestimates the power output that can be maintained for at least 60 min. Expand
Hypertrophic response to unilateral concentric isokinetic resistance training.
TLDR
The data suggest that concentric isokinetic training results in significant strength and hypertrophic responses in the trained limbs. Expand
EFFECTS OF LEUCINE AND WHEY PROTEIN SUPPLEMENTATION DURING EIGHT WEEKS OF UNILATERAL RESISTANCE TRAINING
TLDR
It is suggested that leucine and whey protein supplementation may provide an ergogenic effect which enhances the acquisition of strength beyond that achieved with resistance training and a carbohydrate placebo. Expand
Anthropometric estimation of thigh muscle cross-sectional area.
TLDR
The anthropometric equations are recommended for one-time estimates of muscle CSA values in healthy, well-nourished young adult males when more sophisticated procedures are not available. Expand
Effects of muscle-strength training on the functional status of patients with osteoarthritis of the knee joint.
TLDR
There was a significant decrease in pain and stiffness, and a significant increase in mobility in the experimental group, while the control group increased in only right leg flexion and left leg extension across the training period. Expand

TLDR
The primary finding was the similarity in the mpf, mdf, and cf patterns for both MMG and EMG, which suggested that, despite the concerns over non-stationarity, Fourier based methods are acceptable for determining the patterns for normalized MMGand EMG center frequency during fatiguing dynamic muscle actions at moderate velocities.
