Energy cost and metabolic power in elite soccer: a new match analysis approach.
We propose a more detailed assessment of soccer players' metabolic demands by video match analysis with the aim of also taking into account accelerations. Expand

Primary Motor and Sensory Cortex Activation during Motor Performance and Motor Imagery: A Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study
The intensity and spatial distribution of functional activation in the left precentral and postcentral gyri during actual motor performance (MP) and mental representation [motor imagery (MI)] ofExpand

The energetics of anaerobic muscle metabolism: a reappraisal of older and recent concepts.
This paper discusses under an energetic perspective the recent and older evidence supporting the classical notion that the 'oxygen debt', as originally defined by Margaria et al. (1933) [Am. J.Expand

Sprint running: a new energetic approach
SUMMARY The speed of the initial 30 m of an all-out run from a stationary start on a flat track was determined for 12 medium level male sprinters by means of a radar device. The peak speed ofExpand

Energetics of best performances in middle-distance running.
Oxygen consumption (VO2) and blood lactate concentration were determined during constant-speed track running on 16 runners of intermediate level competing in middle distances (0.8-5.0 km). The energyExpand

Optimal force-velocity profile in ballistic movements--altius: citius or fortius?.
PURPOSE The study's purpose was to determine the respective influences of the maximal power (Pmax) and the force-velocity (F-v) mechanical profile of the lower limb neuromuscular system onExpand

Equation of motion of a cyclist.
Tractional resistance (RT, N) was determined by towing two cyclists on a racing bike in "fully dropped" posture in calm air on a flat track at constant speed (5--16.5 m/s). RT increased with the airExpand
