Musculoskeletal Work in the Longswing on High Bar

  title={Musculoskeletal Work in the Longswing on High Bar},
  author={Gareth Irwin and David G. Kerwin},
The aims of this study were to determine the contributions of the gymnast’s musculoskeletal system during the execution of a general longswing on high bar and to evaluate the overall interaction between the gymnast and the elastic bar. Images of four international gymnasts were recorded (50Hz) performing three series of four longswings on a strain gauged high bar (l000Hz). Real world coordinates were reconstructed using 2D DLT and synchronized with the force data. Inverse dynamic analyses were… CONTINUE READING
