Quantification of dynamic balance is often necessary to assess a patient's level of injury or ability to function in order to initiate an appropriate plan of care. Some therapists use the star-excursion test in an attempt to quantify dynamic balance. This test requires the patient to balance on one leg while reaching with the other leg. For the purpose of(More)
Eighteen elite male power lifters performed 1-repetition maximum (1RM) and submaximal strength tests (70, 80, and 90% 1RM) to develop prediction equations for the squat (SQ), bench press (BP), and deadlift (DL) exercises. For each equation, stepwise multiple-regression prediction procedure included the maximum number of repetitions (REPS) completed at a(More)
OBJECTIVE Although ankle braces supposedly protect the ankle by providing mechanical support of the joint and enhancing proprioceptive input, their proprioceptive effects are unclear. Measuring the center of pressure during posture provides a reasonably well-controlled evaluation of proprioceptive input at the ankle. We, therefore, compared the changes in(More)
Nine men (25.11 +/- 1.16 years) performed 3 different test sessions. In the control session, subjects performed a 10-second sprint cycle test and 1 repetition maximum (1RM) in the back squat. The 5-minute test session consisted of 10 x 1 repetition in the parallel back squat exercise at 90% of their 1RM, 5 minutes of rest, and then a 10-second sprint cycle(More)
