The instruction to �use more of the back of your leg� is sometimes employed by teachers to encourage
greater use of the hamstring muscles when the feet are weight bearing, particularly when the
teacher feels that the student is overusing the �front of the legs� (quadriceps femoris).
Ergonomics in Sport and Physical Activity eBook
The appropriateness of the clothing worn for sport participation has been a neglected aspect of its design, because fashion, facilities, and market forces have outweighed ergonomics criteria.
Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology eBook
Urban environments with high level of pollutants cause concern for outdoor exercisers
Physical Activity and Obesity eBook-2nd Edition
Several studies have been performed to establish the amount of physical activity needed to maintain weight loss
Inside Sport Psychology
The relaxing place technique involves visualizing a real or imaginary location that carries strong associations of relaxation.
A strong core is the platform around which your limbs perform.
Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles
The �intrasarcomere� mechanisms, such as the actin�myosin interaction, are mentioned only in passing. It is assumed that the readers are familiar with these mechanisms from courses in muscle physiology.
Advanced Analysis of Motor Development
Here we focus on the development of striking, throwing, and kicking. Most developmental studies on ballistic projectile skills have been based in developmental sequence theory, although a few studies are beginning to address issues from a dynamic systems perspective.
Clinical Exercise Physiology-3rd Edition
Initially, exercise and physical activity should focus on cardiovascular (i.e., aerobic) modes.
Physical Activity and Mental Health
The evidence points to the efficacy of physical activity interventions for use in treating addictive behaviours.
It is not unusual for athletes to exhibit an “abnormal” ECG due to the effect of exercise training on the anatomy and autonomic control of the heart. However, it is important to understand which ECG abnormalities may be physiologic and which are likely to be pathologic.
