Bodybuilding had the lowest injury rates (0.12–0.7 injuries per lifter per year; 0.24–1 injury per 1000 h), with strongman (4.5–6.1 injuries per 1000 h) and Highland Games (7.5 injuries per 1000 h) reporting the highest rates. The shoulder, lower back, knee, elbow, and wrist/hand were generally the most commonly injured anatomical locations; strains, tendinitis, and sprains were the most common injury type. Very few significant differences in any of the injury outcomes were observed as a function of age, sex, competitive standard, or bodyweight class. Conclusion: While the majority of the research we reviewed utilized retrospective designs, the weight-training sports appear to have relatively low rates of injury compared with common team sports. Future weight-training sport injury epidemiology research needs to be improved, particularly in terms of the use of prospective designs, diagnosis of injury, and changes in risk exposure.]]> Wed 10 May 2017 16:31:30 AEST ]]> Comparison of rheological behaviors with fumed silica-based shear thickening fluids Wed 06 Jun 2018 13:00:31 AEST ]]> The role of ω in the precipitation of α in near-β Ti alloys Wed 05 Apr 2017 13:22:36 AEST ]]> The dynamic response of a metastable β Ti–Nb alloy to high strain rates at room and elevated temperatures and {112} <111> mechanical twinning, stress-induced α” and ω phase transformations and dislocation slip were identified at 293 K. Among them, {332} <113 > twinning is the dominant deformation mechanism and induced pronounced strain hardening at 293 K. At 573 K, {332} <113> and {112} <111 > mechanical twinning occur in conjunction with dislocation slip. Though the direct contribution to strengthening by mechanical twinning is relatively small at 573 K, it enhances both the multiplication and annihilation of dislocations thereby impacting the strain hardening behaviour of the Ti–Nb–Zr–Mo–Sn alloy. With an increase in temperature to 873 K, the plastic strain is accommodated by dislocation slip only. The deformation mechanisms which are active during deformations at different temperatures also influence the development of texture in the Ti–Nb–Zr–Mo–Sn alloy.]]> Wed 05 Apr 2017 12:54:36 AEST ]]> Differences in Nanostructure and Hydrophobicity of Cicada (Cryptotympana atrata) Forewing Surface with the Distribution of Precipitation Wed 02 May 2018 13:49:48 AEST ]]> Residual stress in self-piercing riveting (SPR) joints: industrial application Wed 01 Aug 2018 13:15:21 AEST ]]> Measuring and Classifying Land-Based and Water-Based Daily Living Activities Using Inertial Sensors Tue 28 Jan 2020 15:46:55 AEST ]]> Physiological implications of preparing for a natural male bodybuilding competition  .05).

VGRF in plyometric exercise was lower in water when landing but more similar between the two environments in propulsion. Maximal speed of movement for walking and stationary running was lower in water compared to on land (SMD > 3.05), however was similar in propulsion in plyometric exercise.

Within this narrative review we have highlighted six major themes involving nutrition: altered energy availability, iron, carbohydrate, hydration, antioxidant requirements and various performance supplements. Of these issues, emerging data suggest that particular attention be given to the potential risk for poor energy availability and increased iron requirements at the altitudes typical of elite athlete training (~ 1600–2400 m) to interfere with optimal adaptations. Furthermore, the safest way to address the possible increase in oxidative stress associated with altitude exposure is via the consumption of antioxidant-rich foods rather than high-dose antioxidant supplements. Meanwhile, many other important questions regarding nutrition and altitude training remain to be answered. At the elite level of sport where the differences between winning and losing are incredibly small, the strategic use of nutritional interventions to enhance the adaptations to altitude training provides an important consideration in the search for optimal performance.]]> Mon 16 Dec 2019 08:35:49 AEST ]]> A new understanding of the wear processes during laser assisted milling 17-4 precipitation hardened stainless steel Mon 15 Jul 2019 16:01:48 AEST ]]> Evolution of the microstructure and mechanical properties during fabrication of mini-tubes from a biomedical β-titanium alloy Mon 15 Jul 2019 16:01:47 AEST ]]> Anthropometric profile of powerlifters: Differences as a function of bodyweight class and competitive success Mon 13 Jun 2016 11:12:53 AEST ]]> Three-dimensional cameras and skeleton pose tracking for physical function assessment: A review of uses, validity, current developments and Kinect alternatives Mon 10 Dec 2018 14:53:09 AEST ]]> Changes in diet, and the relationship between diet and physical activity, within and across the lifetime of current ultra-endurance exercisers Mon 08 Apr 2019 15:24:44 AEST ]]> Effects of deformation twinning on the mechanical properties of biodegradable Zn-Mg alloys Mon 03 Dec 2018 10:30:34 AEST ]]> Who dares to join a parabolic flight?

Our results suggest that neck-pain induced postural control deficits in older adults may not be associated with the physical activity levels, lower limb motor and sensory function, or vestibular and visual function. Inferring from wavelet analysis results, we speculated that sensory re-weighting may have occurred to compensate for the deficits in neck proprioception.

Diastolic and mean BP reduced after both anodal tDCS and sham conditions with no differences between them (P> 0.05).
