Effect of different loading conditions on running mechanics at different velocities

Carretero-Navarro, Germán ; Márquez, Gonzalo ; Cherubini, Doménico ; Taube, Wolfgang

In: European Journal of Sport Science, 2019, vol. 19, no. 5, p. 595–602

Weighted vests are widely used to improve running economy and performance. However, it is not well-studied how running mechanics are adapted to counteract the higher peak vertical ground reaction forces (Fpeak) while running with such a device. Therefore, the present study aimed to investigate the effects of different loading conditions on running mechanics at different velocities. Thirteen...

Musculoskeletal injuries and training patterns in junior elite orienteering athletes

Roos, Lilian ; Taube, Wolfgang ; Zuest, Peter ; Clénin, German ; Wyss, Thomas

In: BioMed Research International, 2015, vol. 2015, p. e259531

Findings about the relation between musculoskeletal injuries and training patterns in orienteering athletes are sparse. Therefore, the musculoskeletal injuries and training patterns of 31 Swiss elite orienteering athletes aged 18-19 years were analyzed in a retrospective study. Individual training diaries and medical records were used to assess training data and injury history, respectively....

Enhanced jump performance when providing augmented feedback compared to an external or internal focus of attention

Keller, Martin ; Lauber, Benedikt ; Gottschalk, Marius ; Taube, Wolfgang

In: Journal of Sports Sciences, 2015, vol. 33, no. 10, p. 1067–1075

Factors such as an external focus of attention (EF) and augmented feedback (AF) have been shown to improve performance. However, the efficacy of providing AF to enhance motor performance has never been compared with the effects of an EF or an internal focus of attention (IF). Therefore, the aim of the present study was to identify which of the three conditions (AF, EF or IF) leads to the...
