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)
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)
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)
Many elderly persons are engaging in resistance exercise to counter muscle atrophy due to aging. Here, the acute effects of resistance exercise on postural control mechanisms were examined. Postural control was quantified by mean square center-of-pressure displacements were calculated utilizing force vectors in accordance with previously developed(More)
There is evidence from previous cross-sectional studies that high volumes of certain sports, including running, swimming and cycling, may have a negative impact on bone mineral density. The aim of the present study was to evaluate prospectively the effects of high athletic training in individuals who engage in high volumes of all three of these activities(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effects of a simulated knee joint effusion on center of pressure (COP) path and mean power frequency (MPF) during standing. DESIGN Quasi-experimental design. SETTING Sports injury research laboratory in a university setting. PARTICIPANTS Twenty healthy volunteers, 10 of whom (age, 20.1+/-2.4y; height, 168.0+/-8.1cm; weight,(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)
The purpose of this investigation was to compare the kinetic characteristics of the power clean exercise using either free weight or machine resistance. After familiarization, 14 resistance trained men (mean +/- SD; age = 24.9 +/- 6.2 years) participated in two testing sessions. During the initial testing session, one-repetition maximum performance (1RM)(More)
Seventeen women were divided into lean (19.5 +/- 0.5 years; 22.2 +/- 0.6 kg.m(-2)) and obese (20.4 +/- 0.5 years; 34.9 +/- 2.1 kg.m(-2)) groups. On completion of a submax cycle ergometer test and 10-repetition maximum (10RM) of 5 exercises on a Smith machine, subjects returned for 2 exercise sessions during menses. Session 1 consisted of performing 3 sets(More)
