With the aim of proposing modelling equations for the length, force and shortening velocity of the triceps brachii, an X-ray and biomechanical study was carried out on the elbow joint. Two series of three upper right limbs removed from cadavers were used. It allowed us to situate the articular rotational axis of the elbow and to modelise the lever arm of(More)
In order to compare the Maximal Aerobic Speed (MAS) evaluated with different methods, eleven male physical education students (22.2 +/- 3.0 years) were submitted to a maximal treadmill protocol and to the Université de Montréal Track Test (UMTT). Four methods were used to calculate MAS. After treadmill measurement of VO2max, MAS was calculated (MAS_calc) by(More)
The aims of this study were to use the Maximal Aerobic Speed (MAS) to set training intensities for aerobic training and to measure the effects of two different training programmes on MAS and on the running time to exhaustion at 100% of MAS (Tlim) for 121 students aged 14 to 17 years. The MAS was measured using the Université de Montréal Track Test (UMTT).(More)
The relations among kinematic parameters measured during the first 10 seconds of 100-m sprint and anaerobic tests were studied in 22 male physical education students. During the first 10 seconds of the sprint, the position of the runners was "continuously" measured with a laser telemeter. Maximal acceleration (Amax), maximal velocity (Vmax), and time to(More)
The aim of this study was to analyse the effects of a high-intensity aerobic training program on different components of physical fitness in adolescents aged 11 to 16 years. The subjects were divided into a high intensity (HI) group (243 girls and 260 boys) and a control (C) group (21 girls and 27 boys). HI and C completed a weekly 3 hour physical education(More)
The measurement of maximal aerobic speed (MAS) and the prediction of maximal oxygen uptake (VO2 max) by means of field tests were carried out on 17 students studying physical education. The subjects underwent a continuous multi-stage track test (Léger and Boucher, 1980), shuttle test (Léger et al., 1984) and VO2 max measurement on a treadmill. The VO2 max(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of the study was to test the ability to determine the velocity associated with peak oxygen uptake for adolescents by means of a simple field test, the Université de Montréal Track Test (UMTT). METHODS Fifteen adolescents, 13.4 +/- 1.0 years, performed two maximal field tests where oxygen uptake and heart rate were continuously(More)
The purpose of the present study was to submit disabled swimmers to two maximal swimming tests, and by comparing the physiological and performance responses of disabled and normal swimmers to determine if these adapted tests can be used to design training programmes for this particular class of swimmer. Two groups of disabled (n = 8 and 6) and two groups of(More)
