Comparative Study of Kinematics and Muscle Activity Between Elite and Amateur Table Tennis Players During Topspin Loop Against Backspin Movements

represents the number of curves with m EP = 10 and m AP = 10; n represents the number of data of each curve; Y ij is the j th data of the i th curve; Ῡ j is the average of the j th data of all curves, Ῡ is the mean of n data for all curves. The closer the CMC is to 1, the higher the similarity of the curve. The following definitions were used in this study: no similarity for between 0 and 0.25, low similarity for 0.25 to 0.5, moderate similarity for 0.5 to 0.75, and high similarity for more than 0.75 values following Maszczyk et al.
