Inhibition and Calendar Age Explain Variance in Game Performance of Youth Soccer Athletes
The assessment of core executive functions (EFs; i.e., inhibition, working memory, cognitive flexibility) has often been presented as a diagnostic tool for evaluating cognitive functions in recent publications. For example, ...
Methodological aspects of the acromiohumeral distance measurement with ultrasonography
Reliability and effects of extrinsic and intrinsic factors in overhead and non-overhead athletes
Introduction To improve comparability and interpretation of acromiohumeral distance (AHD) measurements, consequences of varying methodological approaches and population specific effects have to be known. This study aimed ...
An Identical Twin Study on Human Achilles Tendon Adaptation: Regular Recreational Exercise at Comparatively Low Intensities Can Increase Tendon Stiffness
Achilles tendon adaptation is a key aspect of exercise performance and injury risk prevention. However, much debate exists about the adaptation of the Achilles tendon in response to exercise activities. Most published ...
Exercise and sports after COVID‐19—Guidance from a clinical perspective
SARS-CoV-2 infection has emerged as not only a pulmonary but also potentially multi-organ disease, which may cause long-term structural damage of different organ systems including the lung, heart, vasculature, brain, liver, ...
Effect of Uphill Running on VO2, Heart Rate and Lactate Accumulation on Lower Body Positive Pressure Treadmills
Lower body positive pressure treadmills (LBPPTs) as a strategy to reduce musculoskeletal load are becoming more common as part of sports conditioning, although the requisite physiological parameters are unclear. To elucidate ...
Impact of Altered Gastrocnemius Morphometrics and Fascicle Behavior on Walking Patterns in Children With Spastic Cerebral Palsy
Spastic cerebral palsy (SCP) affects neural control, deteriorates muscle morphometrics, and may progressively impair functional walking ability. Upon passive testing, gastrocnemius medialis (GM) muscle bellies or fascicles ...
Muscle and Tendon Morphology in Early-Adolescent Athletes and Untrained Peers
Adolescent athletes can feature significantly greater muscle strength and tendon stiffness compared to untrained peers. However, to date, it is widely unclear if radial muscle and tendon hypertrophy may contribute to ...
Neuromechanics of Dynamic Balance Tasks in the Presence of Perturbations
Understanding the neuromechanical responses to perturbations in humans may help to explain the reported improvements in stability performance and muscle strength after perturbation-based training. In this study, we ...
Individualized Muscle-Tendon Assessment and Training
The interaction of muscle and tendon is of major importance for movement performance and a balanced development of muscle strength and tendon stiffness could protect athletes from overuse injury. However, muscle and tendon ...
