The objectives of this study is to determine the immediate and 10 minutes follow-up effects of a warm-up based on a continous run on a treadmill or the application of a hot-pack in athlete...
The purpose of the study is to investigate the efficacy of a 10-week intervention, using the Nordic Hamstring exercise, on repeated-sprint ability in male sub-elite football players. The p...
This study aimed to compare the effect of two hamstring strengthening programmes on hamstring muscle strength in Gaelic footballers. 26 Gaelic footballers were recruited and randomly assig...
A common soft tissue injury in sports involving sprinting and jumping is the hamstring strain. Not much evidence-based research has been carried out on prevention of hamstring strains. ...
The aim of the study is to compare the effects of concentric and eccentric exercises on muscle strength, muscle thickness and balance in healthy Individuals. Participants will randomly be ...
In elite sport, the use of strength testing to establish muscle function and performance is common. Traditionally, isokinetic strength tests have been used, measuring torque during concentric and ecce...
Eccentric hamstring strength is an aetiological risk factor for soccer injury. The temporal pattern of recovery post-exercise is critical in injury management. 18 male professional soccer players comp...
Hamstring injuries are common in field sport athletes. Eccentric strength training of the hamstring muscles is an integral component of rehabilitation programmes. The Askling L-Protocol comprises thre...
Infraspinatus muscle atrophy is common in professional volleyball players, but it is unclear whether commonly observed strength and proprioception deficits can be reversed with training. Fifty-four pa...
The development of new strategies to attenuate exercise-induced muscle damage may be helpful for training regimens. The aim of this study was to determine whether a oral formulation of angiotensin Ang...
A group of tendons that attach the HAMSTRING MUSCLES proximally to the PELVIS and to the TIBIA and FIBULA at the KNEE JOINT.
Sensory functions that transduce stimuli received by proprioceptive receptors in joints, tendons, muscles, and the INNER EAR into neural impulses to be transmitted to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Proprioception provides sense of stationary positions and movements of one's body parts, and is important in maintaining KINESTHESIA and POSTURAL BALANCE.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
A group of muscles in the posterior THIGH area that are involved in connecting the KNEE JOINT and the PELVIS.
