Effects Of Seated Load Carriage On Mobility, Jamilia Almonte Apr 2019

Effects Of Seated Load Carriage On Mobility, Jamilia Almonte

Health Sciences Student Work

Research has determined significant health detriments associated with sitting for extended periods of time, including chronic disease risk, pain, and mobility. Additionally, although it is not researched commonly, sitting is an essential component of job related tasks for tactical professionals such as military, police and firefighters. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine if there is a relationship between seated load carriage and dynamic mobility. METHODS: Eighteen recreationally active Merrimack College Students (age: 23.33 +/- 1.45 yr) participated in the randomized, within groups, crossover study. All subjects completed a total of three study visits which consisted of ...


The Effects Of Hip-Dominant Post-Activation Potentiation On Broad Jump Performance In Varsity Collegiate Football Players, Trevor Bradley-Dade Apr 2019

The Effects Of Hip-Dominant Post-Activation Potentiation On Broad Jump Performance In Varsity Collegiate Football Players, Trevor Bradley-Dade

Health Sciences Student Work

(1) Introduction: The purpose of this study was to determine the acute effects of hipdominant eccentric post-activation potentiation (PAP) on broad jump distance, through the usage of dynamic (concentric) tempo and eccentric tempo conventional straight bar switch grip deadlifts. This study hypothesized that the experimental eccentric tempo deadlift protocol would result in greater improvements to broad jump performance than the experimental dynamic or control protocols. (2) Methods: Twenty-four varsity football players from Tufts University aged 18-22 years were recruited. Participants were assigned into three groups and cycled through one control protocol and two experimental protocols, over the course of three ...
