Fluctuating Asymmetry of Human Populations: A Review
TLDR
The literature on fluctuating asymmetry of human populations is reviewed to highlight the most serious concerns are insensitive asymmetry indices, inappropriate size scaling, unrecognized mixture distributions, inappropriate corrections for directional asymmetry, failure to use composite indices, and inattention to measurement error.

A prospective cohort study of hamstring injuries in competitive sprinters: preseason muscle imbalance as a possible risk factor
TLDR
Cox regression analysis revealed that athletes with a decrease in the hamstring : quadriceps peak torque ratio of less than 0.60 at an angular velocity of 180°/s have a 17-fold increased risk of hamstring injury. Expand
The Contribution of Step Characteristics to Sprint Running Performance in High-Level Male and Female Athletes
TLDR
It was concluded that men and women pursue an optimal balance between step rate and step length because a high negative correlation was found in both sexes and training approach needs to be customized to gender-related differences in step length-rate interaction. Expand
THE EFFECTS OF SHORT‐TERM UNILATERAL AND BILATERAL LOWER‐BODY RESISTANCE TRAINING ON MEASURES OF STRENGTH AND POWER
TLDR
It is indicated that UL and BL are equally effective for early phase improvement of unilateral and bilateral leg strength and power in untrained men and women. Expand
Loss of power during fatigue of human leg muscles.
TLDR
Ferent feedback from muscles, tendons and joints or from the respiratory and cardiovascular systems does not have a major role in inhibiting voluntary activation of the quadriceps during heavy exercise and central fatigue represented a minor factor contributing no more than one‐fifth of the total loss of power in these circumstances. Expand
DETERMINATION OF FUNCTIONAL STRENGTH IMBALANCE OF THE LOWER EXTREMITIES
TLDR
It is indicated that a significant strength imbalance can exist even in collegiate level athletes, and future research should be conducted to determine how detrimental these imbalances could be in terms of peak performance for athletes, as well as the implications for injury risk. Expand
Single‐leg hop testing following fatiguing exercise: reliability and biomechanical analysis
TLDR
The large negative power values observed at the knee joint during the landing phase of the single‐leg hop, during which the quadriceps muscle activates eccentrically, indicate that not only hop distance but also the ability to perform successful landings should be investigated when assessing dynamic knee function. Expand
Anatomic and functional leg-length inequality: A review and recommendation for clinical decision-making. Part II, the functional or unloaded leg-length asymmetry
TLDR
The evidence suggests that an unloaded leg-length asymmetry is a different phenomenon than an anatomic leg- length inequality, and may be due to suprapelvic muscle hypertonicity, and should be eliminated before any necessary treatment of anatomic LLI. Expand
Role of arm motion in the standing long jump.
TLDR
The role of arm motion on the performance of the standing long jump was investigated and the added balance and control provided by the arms throughout the jumping motion contributed to performance improvement in JFA. Expand
Preseason Hamstring Muscle Weakness Associated with Hamstring Muscle Injury in Australian Footballers
TLDR
Preseason isokinetic testing of professional Australian Rules foot ballers can identify players at risk of developing ham string muscle strains and discriminatory-function analysis correctly classified legs into injury groups with 77.4% success. Expand
Maximum Power Training Load Determination and Its Effects on Load-Power Relationship, Maximum Strength, and Vertical Jump Performance
TLDR
The inclusion or not of body mass to determine the load that maximizes mechanical power output affects the long-term adaptations differently in the load-power relationship, and training load selection will depend on the required adaptations. Expand
