Effects of Lengthening Velocity During Eccentric Training on Vastus Lateralis Muscle Hypertrophy
Eccentric loading is an effective stimulus for muscle hypertrophy and strength gains, however, the effect of lengthening velocity is under debate. The purpose of the current study was to investigate the influence of muscle ...
Challenging human locomotion
stability and modular organisation in unsteady conditions
The need to move over uneven terrain is a daily challenge. In order to face unexpected perturbations due to changes in the morphology of the terrain, the central nervous system must flexibly modify its control strategies. ...
Operating length and velocity of human vastus lateralis muscle during walking and running
According to the force-length-velocity relationships, the muscle force potential during locomotion is determined by the operating fibre length and velocity. We measured fascicle and muscle-tendon unit length and velocity ...
Living on the edge? Periphery and perspective in Tobias Zielony’s urban landscapes
Housing estates, satellite cities and other formerly idealistic social housing projects are subject to certain modes of representation that often affirm the notion of centre and periphery. The analysis of two series by ...
Students’ Emotional Experience in Physical Education—A Qualitative Study for New Theoretical Insights
Physical education (PE) can be the starting point for many students to be physically active throughout their lives. Positive emotional experiences in PE are discussed as beneficial for long-term physical activity, however, ...
Follow-up efficacy of physical exercise interventions on fall incidence and fall risk in healthy older adults
A systematic review and meta-analysis
Background: The risk of falling and associated injuries increases with age. Therefore, the prevention of falls is a key priority in geriatrics and is particularly based on physical exercising, aiming to improve the age-related ...
Coach Competences to Induce Positive Affective Reactions in Sport and Exercise—A Qualitative Study
Positive affective reactions are a crucial aspect in physical activity maintenance. Affective reactions to sport and exercise were found to be important factors of physical activity. Coaches could be an important medium ...
