Peak Isokinetic Torque Of Knee Flexors And Extensor Muscles Of College Football Players : A Thesis ..., David L. Boerem

University of the Pacific Theses and Dissertations

The problem of the study addressed knee injuries in college football. Imbalance of the musculature surrounding the knee would predispose the athlete to knee injury. Recognition of those who have muscular deficiencies would be a primary way of preventing knee injuries. The focus of the study was to determine if there was a significant difference in peak isokinetic torque of knee flexor and extensor muscles across speeds (60 degrees/second, 180 degrees/ second and 300 degrees/second) of a college football team subsequent to participation in a spring football season.

Effect Of Environment On Athletic Ability, Carroll Clinton Stowell

University of the Pacific Theses and Dissertations

If the boy just told him how to get there he would depart, but if the boy picked up the plow and pointed in the direction he should go he would immediately ask him to come ...
