Article
Full-text available
The purpose of this study was to characterise the physiological, neuromuscular and perceived exertion variables during a badminton match and to assess the influence of these variables on the characteristics of the game. Each variable was measured before, every ten minutes, and at ten and twenty minutes after a badminton game. Using a lactate device...

The aim of this study was to investigate the role of energy cost in locomotion, specifically the rate of perceived exertion and movement variability in gait transition for eight race walkers (RW) and seven nonrace walkers (NRW). We hypothesized that a group of correlated variables could serve as combined triggers. Participants performed a preferred...
Article
Full-text available
Combining advances from gait analysis and motor learning fields, this study aims to examine invariant characteristics and practice-related changes in the control of walking gait when learning a biomechanically constrained pattern, racewalking (RW). RW’s regulation imposes a straightened knee at the stance phase which differentiates it qualitatively...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Peforming racewalking requires learning new coordinative patterns involving a large number of biomechanical degrees of freedom (dof). Many studies investigated the existence of common strategies in the dof organization with motor learning (e.g., freezing/freeing). However, contradictory results indicated that learning dynamics mainly depends on the...
Article
This study investigated how novices learn an energy demanding and biomechanically constrained task like racewalking. The first aim was to examine if movement reorganizes according to some fundamental strategies, proceeding in different stages (Newell, 1985). The second aim was to investigate the link between movement reorganization, metabolic effic...

The aim of this study was to investigate human adaptations to fatigue induced by track sprint repetitions. Eight male sprinters were asked to run 4 × 100 m as quickly as possible with 3 min of recovery. Subjects were filmed (50 Hz) in order to measure stride length and frequency. Velocity was measured by means of radar (250 Hz) while contact and fl...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The 100m sprint is divided into three parts: the acceleration phase, the maximal speed and the deceleration. This activity can be analyzed by the recent measurement method of Morin et al. (2006) that enables the mechanical stiffness calculation in field conditions. In the current literature, the causes of the deceleration were not well determined....
Article
Full-text available
This study tested the effect of lower limb muscle fatigue induced by series of high-level isometric contractions (IC) on postural adjustments and maintenance of erect posture. Subjects (N=7) displaced a bar (grasp-bar) forward with both hands at maximal velocity towards a target ("bilateral forward-reach" task, BFR), before and after a procedure de...
Article
It is difficult to interpret the training induced changes in middle-distance running, since numerous aerobic and anaerobic determinants of the performance are interdependent. Several aerobic and anaerobic tests are available but their results, particularly those from anaerobic tests, may be discordant, not providing univocal interpretation of train...

The Preferred transition speed between walking and running in competitive race walkers The well-trained competition walkers walk beyond their natural transition speed, the present study aims to investigate the interplay between their different gaits and energetic demands.
Article
Full-text available
The aim of this study was to determine the energetic factors of middle-distance running performance in junior elite runners according to gender and by using measurements from on-track performances. Fifteen elite runners (8 males and 7 females) were investigated by means of an incremental test and an all-out run over 600 m performed with a 2-d inter...
Article
Full-text available
The first purpose of this study was to assess the eventual training adaptations in the time to exhaustion at the same severe velocity occurring after severe interval-training programs in few- and well-trained subjects. In the event of such training adaptations, the second purpose was to identify the discriminant factors of performance improvement a...

This study compares the training characteristics and the physical profiles of top-class male and female Kenyan long-distance runners. The subjects were 20 elite Kenyan runners: 13 men (10-km performance time: 10-km performance time of 28 min, 36 s +/- 18 s) and 7 women (32 min, 32 s +/- 65 s). The male runners were separated into high-speed trainin...
Article
Aim The aim of this study was to test the reproductibility of maximal accumulated oxygen deficit according to running experience. Subjects and methods The study was conducted on 18 subjects: nine experienced long distance runners and nine novice runners. Each subject completed five treadmill testing protocols over 3 weeks. The first and the last t...
Article
Recent studies have proposed the use of the maximal accumulated oxygen deficit (MAOD) as a useful alternative method to quantify individual anaerobic capacity (Green and Dawson, 1993; Medbø et al., 1988). Therefore, the aim of this research was to study the effect of a usual training procedure on maximal oxygen deficit and some other usual indicato...
Article
Une méthode d'évaluation de la capacité anaérobie basée sur le calcul du déficit maximal d'oxygène (DO2 max) a été récemment présentée (Medbo et al, 1988). Cette méthode de mesure du DO2 max semble constituer une mesure quantitative de la sollicitation énergétique lors d'efforts supramaximaux (Di Prampero, 1981; Medbo et al, 1988). Cependant il exi...

Effect of 3-month training period on MAOD in high level performance sprinters Abstract: Recent studies have proposed the use of the maximal accumulated oxygen deficit (MAOD) as a useful alternative method of to quantify individual anaerobic capacity (Green and Dawson 1993; Medbo et al., 1988). Therefore, the aim of this research was to study the e...
