Relationships Between Sprint, Jumping and Strength Abilities, and 800 M Performance in Male Athletes of National and International Levels

.1–0.3, small ; <0.3–0.5, moderate ; <0.5–0.7, large ; <0.7–0.9, very large ; and <0.9–1.0, almost perfect ( Hopkins et al., 2009 ). Statistical significance was set at p ≤ 0.05. SPSS for Mac (IBM Corporation, New York, NY, USA) (release 20.0.0) was used for all statistical analyses. Results Reliability was set with the ICC and CV for all the distances and jumps. Sprints were generally reliable: 10 m (ICC: 0.75; CI: 0.25-0.92; CV: 1.9%), 10-20 m (ICC: 0.83; CI: 0.46-0.95; CV: 1.6%), and 20 m (ICC: 0.92; CI: 0.76-0.97; CV: 1.1%). Both CMJ (ICC: 0.99; CI: 0

Changes in Impact Signals and Muscle Activity in Response to Different Shoe and Landing Conditions

that wearing cushioned shoes can induce greater shock attenuation compared to the control condition. Furthermore, the post-activation levels of four tested muscles (TA, LG, RF and BF) were significantly lower in BS than those of CC from at least one drop height (p < 0.05) (Figure 3b) . The findings imply that wearing high-cushioned shoes can reduce the magnitude of impact and decrease muscle post-activation if the muscles are improperly activated. Potthast et al. (2010) reported that the hardness of the interfaces explained less than 10% of the variance of

The effects of specific drills on the flip turns of freestyle swimmers based on a kinesiology analysis

.01 136.10 ± 6.17 * p < 0.05 -9.22 ± 12.54 ** p < 0.01 Discussion Diagnosis of flip turn skills among participants Diagnoses were made after the pre-test and participants’ mistakes in flip turns were listed. The turning was divided into 4 phases for the purpose of diagnosis: approach, somersault and push-off, underwater gliding and breakout. Figure 1 Camera layout Compared with Australian elite swimmers, the participants’ turn times were relatively longer; thus, they were much slower than these elite swimmers ( Mason, 2015 ). For
