No taekwondo or wrestling athletes were compliant. Despite low overall engagement, a large number of injuries or illness were recorded across 11 athletes who entered data—22 unique injuries, 8 unique illnesses, 30 recurrent injuries, and 2 recurrent illnesses. The most frequent injuries were to the knee in boxing (n=41) and thigh in judo (n=9). In this cohort, judo players experienced more severe, but less frequent, injuries than boxers, yet judo players sustained more illnesses than boxers. In 97.0% (126/130) of cases, athletes in this cohort continued to train irrespective of their health problems. Conclusions: Among athletes who reported injuries, many reported multiple conditions, indicating a need for health monitoring in Australian combat sports. A number of factors May have influenced engagement with the AMS, including access to the internet, the design of the system, coach views on the system, previous experiences with the system, and the existing culture within Australian combat sports. To increase engagement, there May be a requirement for sports staff to provide relevant feedback on data entered into the system. Until the Barriers are addressed, it is not feasible to implement the system in its current form across a larger cohort of combat athletes.]]> Wed 27 Mar 2019 14:04:58 AEDT ]]> The effect of including a series of isometric conditioning contractions to the rowing warm-up on 1,000-m rowing ergometer time trial performance http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:4843 0.05). The PW improved mean power output by 6.6% (p < 0.01) and mean stroke rate by 5.2% (p < 0.01) over the first 500 m; resulting in a reduction of 500-m time by 1.9% (p < 0.01), compared with the NW. It appears that the inclusion of isometric conditioning contractions to the rowing warm-up enhance short-term rowing ergometer performance (especially at the start of a race) to a greater extent than a rowing warm-up alone. © 2012 National Strength and Conditioning Association.]]> Wed 24 Jul 2019 16:05:57 AEST ]]> Changes in leg power, jump and sprint performance following nine-weeks of conventional vs complex training http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:6942 Wed 22 Feb 2017 10:04:45 AEDT ]]> Effect of instructions on selected jump squat variables http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:11750 0.05). Jump height was the variable that correlated most strongly with 10-m time and 10- to 20-m time under both instructions. The height instruction produced a stronger correlation with 10-m time (r = -0.455), but the fast leg extension JS produced a greater correlation with 10-20 time (r = -0.545). The results indicate that instructions have a meaningful influence on JS variables and therefore need to be taken into consideration when assessing or training athletes.]]> Wed 20 Sep 2017 15:24:05 AEST ]]> Examining approaches to combining strength and power in a training program http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:12496 Wed 10 Jan 2018 09:11:31 AEDT ]]> The acute effects of conventional, complex, and contrast protocols on lower-body power http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:5889 Wed 08 Nov 2017 06:51:16 AEDT ]]> Association between leg power and sprinting technique with 20-m sprint performance in elite junior australian football players http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:7570 0.05).

ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]]> Fri 23 Aug 2019 12:37:27 AEST ]]> Physical qualities predict change-of-direction speed but not defensive agility in Australian rules football http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:8274 2 = 0.567, p ≤ 0.05). Participants were median split into faster and slower COD speed groups, and these were compared by independent t-tests. The faster group was significantly better (p ≤ 0.05) on the sprint acceleration and reactive strength tests (large effect size). The correlations between physical qualities and agility were trivial to small (r = -0.101 to 0.123, p > 0.05) and collectively explained only 14.2% of the variance associated with agility performance (adjusted R2 = -0.142, p > 0.05). When faster and slower agility groups were compared, there were trivial to moderate differences (p > 0.05) in all physical qualities. It was concluded that reactive strength and sprint acceleration are important for COD speed, but the physical qualities assessed are not associated with defensive agility performance. For agility tasks similar to those in this study, sprint and resistance training should not be emphasized, and training other factors, such as the development of sportspecific technique and cognitive skill, is recommended. © 2015 National Strength and Conditioning Association.]]> Fri 18 Oct 2019 16:03:43 AEDT ]]> A comparison of Smith machine and barbell half squats to elicit potentiation in countermovement jump performance http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:12646 Fri 17 Aug 2018 17:01:50 AEST ]]> The effects of an isometric potentiation protocol in the warm-up of elite rowers http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:12331 Fri 15 Jun 2018 16:57:56 AEST ]]> Sport-specific factors predicting player retention in junior cricket http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:11499 Fri 02 Nov 2018 11:07:27 AEDT ]]>
