Anticipatory effects on knee joint loading during running and cutting maneuvers.
Cutting maneuvers performed without adequate planning may increase the risk of noncontact knee ligament injury due to the increased external varus/valgus and internal/external rotation moments applied to the knee.
External loading of the knee joint during running and cutting maneuvers.
The combined external moments applied to the knee joint during stance phase of the cutting tasks are believed to place the ACL and collateral ligaments at risk of injury, particularly at knee flexion angles between 0 degrees and 40 degrees, if appropriate muscle activation strategies are not used to counter these moments.
Muscle activation strategies at the knee during running and cutting maneuvers.
In PP conditions, activation patterns appear to be selected to support the external loads experienced at the knee, e.g., medial muscles activated to resist applied valgus moments, have implications for the etiology of noncontact knee ligament injuries.
Current Status of Body Composition Assessment in Sport
Having considered issues of accuracy, repeatability and utility, the multi-component model might be employed as a performance or selection criterion, provided the selected model accounts for variability in the density of fat-free mass in its computation.
Back injuries to fast bowlers in cricket: a prospective study.
Results suggest that bowlers with the above physical characteristics, who bowl with these biomechanical techniques for extended periods, are predisposed to back injuries.

Resistance Training over 2 Years Increases Bone Mass in Calcium‐Replete Postmenopausal Women
The effectiveness of a progressive strength program in increasing bone density at the clinically important hip site is shown and a strength program could be recommended as an adjunct lifestyle approach to osteoporosis treatment or used in combination with other therapies.
How to minimise the health risks to athletes who compete in weight-sensitive sports review and position statement on behalf of the Ad Hoc Research Working Group on Body Composition, Health and
There is a need for sport-specific and gender-specific preventive programmes, criteria for raising alarm and ‘does not start’ (DNS) for athletes with EDs, modifications to the regulations in some sports, and key areas for research identified.
Olympic lightweight and open-class rowers possess distinctive physical and proportionality characteristics
The rowers in this sample demonstrated distinctive physical characteristics that distinguish them from non-rowers and other sports performers.
