Links between physical characteristics and specific performances in American Football

by P. Debraux | 19 April 2018

Performance in 40-yard sprint and 20-yard shuttle test are essential parameters in American Football. It remains to be determined what physical and anthropometric variables are related to these field performances.

Strength Training provides larger, more sustainable gains in seniors

by A. Manolova | 16 March 2018

It is now recognized that strength training is an effective method to fight against age-related strength and muscle loss in older adults. But what are the effects of different training intensities in the short and medium term ?

Track Cycling: What are the performance variables on the flying 200m time trial ?

by P. Debraux | 10 March 2018

In track cycling, the flying 200m time trial is a qualifying event for the individual speed event. It is then essential to know the parameters that can affect the performance.

Mechanical characteristics of Sci-Sport elastic bands during laboratory tensile tests

by A. Manolova & P. Debraux | 8 March 2018

In order to scientifically determine the resistance of Sci-Sport elastic bands against stretching, we subjected them to tensile strength tests in laboratory.

Maximal squat strength, sprint performance and jump height in soccer players

by A. Manolova | 2 March 2018

During a soccer game, about 96% of the sprints are less than 30m, and 50% of them are less than 10m. Is there a link between maximal strength of the lower limbs and sprint performance ?
