Purpose: The intensity progression of core stabilization exercises (CSEs) is usually based on personal criteria rather than on objective parameters. To develop exercise progressions for four of the most common CSEs based on the postural control challenge imposed on the participants, and to analyze the effect of participants’ sex and postural contro...

Although core stability (CS) training is largely used to enhance motor performance and prevent musculoskeletal injuries, the lack of methods to quantify CS training intensity hinders the design of CS programs and the comparison and generalization of their effects. The aim of this study was to analyze the reliability of accelerometers integrated int...
Data
The same core stability isometric exercise elicits different pelvis acceleration in two individuals. The individuals in this manuscript have given written informed consent (as outlined in PLOS consent form) to publish these case details. (MP4)

Son aún limitados los estudios que han investigado el rol del ejercicio físico como terapia complementaria en el tratamiento de la esquizofrenia. Por lo tanto, el objetivo principal de este estudio fue analizar los efectos de un programa de ejercicio físico sobre variables de salud mental, calidad de vida y condición física en personas con esquizof...
Article
While most trunk endurance field protocols are performed in the sagittal or frontal planes, the flexion-rotation trunk (FRT) test combines trunk flexion with rotation, which may be relevant to rotation-related sports. The aim of this study was to describe the trunk and hip muscle activation and fatigue and the range of hip flexion of this test. Twe...
Article
Different methods have been developed to quantify trunk muscle strength and endurance. However, some important protocol characteristics are still unclear, hindering the selection of the most suitable tests in each specific situation. The aim of this study was to examine the reliability and the relationship between 3 representative tests of the most...
Article
The main purpose of this study was to analyse the training effects of the FIFA 11+ and Harmoknee on several parameters of physical performance measures in youth amateur football players. 41 adolescent players were randomised within each team into 2 groups (team 1: control vs. FIFA 11+; team 2: control vs. Harmoknee). The FIFA 11+ and Harmoknee grou...

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the reliability and the learning effect of an isokinetic trunk flexion-extension protocol designed to simultaneously assess trunk muscle strength and endurance. In addition, the effect of the participants' sex on the reliability data was examined. Methods: Fifty-seven healthy and physically activ...

The aims of the present study were to evaluate the validity and reliability of the two different change of direction ability (CODA) tests in elite football players with cerebral palsy (CP) and to analyse the differences in performance of this ability between current functional classes (FT) and controls. The sample consisted of 96 international cere...

RESUMEN Si bien el paradigma del asiento inestable ha sido utilizado con éxito para valorar la estabilidad del tronco en poblaciones patológicas, éste no ha sido utilizado para estudiar la influencia de la práctica deportiva sobre la estabilización activa del tronco (EAT). El objetivo del estudio fue analizar el efecto de la especialización deporti...
