  1. 1. Biomechanical and neural aspects of eccentric and concentric muscle performance in stroke subjects Implications for resistance training

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Mattias Hedlund; Britta Lindström; Peter Sojka; Ronnie Lundström; Carl-Johan Olsson; Jan Lexell; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; fMRI; Isokinetic; Motor imagery; Muscular strength; Resistance training; Neurological rehabilitation;

    Abstract : Muscle weakness is one of the major causes of post-stroke disability. Stroke rehabilitation programs now often incorporate the same type of resistance training that is used for healthy subjects; however, the training effects induced from these training strategies are often limited for stroke patients.

  2. 2. Elite sprinters, ice hockey players, orienteers and marathon runners isokinetic leg muscle performance in relation to muscle structure and training

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Christer Johansson; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Electromyography; endurance; enzyme histocytochemistry; fatigue; ice hockey; isokinetic; muscle contraction; OBLA; orienteering; running;

    Abstract : In male athletes from different sports, isokinetic knee extensor, and in orienteers also plantar flexor peak torque (PT), contractional work (CW) and integrated surface electromyograms (iEMG) were analysed.Single contraction PT, CW and iEMG in sprinters and marathon runners were signi­ficantly correlated to the cross-sectional area (CSA) of m.

  3. 3. Effects of Ageing and Physical Activity on Regulation of Muscle Contraction

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Alexander Cristea; Lars Larsson; Anna-Stina Höglund; Ingrid Lundberg; [2008]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; ageing; sarcopenia; sprint training; progressive resistance training; in vivo function; isokinetic dynamometer; in vitro function; single permeabilised fibre; myonuclear domain; confocal microscopy; VETERINARY MEDICINE Medicine; VETERINÄRMEDICIN Medicin;

    Abstract : The aims of this study were to investigate the mechanisms underlying (1) the ageing-related motor handicap at the whole muscle, cellular, contractile protein and myonuclear levels; and (2) ageing-related differences in muscle adaptability.In vivo muscles function was studied in the knee extensors.

  4. 4. The physiological impact of soccer on elite female players and the effects of active recovery training

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Helena M. Andersson; Fawzi Kadi; Carl Johan Sundberg; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Football; Training; Recovery; Intermittent exercise; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Sports; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Idrott; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN; Fysiologi; Physiology; Idrottsvetenskap; Sports Science;

    Abstract : Female soccer is becoming more popular and professional in the world. There are, however, limited scientific data available on how elite female players respond to physical stress during soccer games. An effective recovery strategy following a game is important, because there are few recovery days between the games in international tournaments. READ MORE

  5. 5. Kinetic chain weight training, strength assessment, and functional performance testing: with reference to sports and rehabilitation

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Jesper Augustsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; open kinetic chain; closed kinetic chain; weight training; strength assessment; functional tests; anterior cruciate ligament; reconstruction; fatigue;

    Abstract : The overall purpose of the studies was to obtain knowledge about physical performance in healthy individuals and patients after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Data are presented that concerns closed and open kinetic chain exercise, adaptive response to weight training, the methodology of muscle strength assessment, and the development of a functional testing protocol performed under conditions of fatigue.
