Does Primarily Hip-Borne Load Carriage Negatively Alter Joint Kinetics?

Research Paper Title Primarily hip-borne load carriage does not alter biomechanical risk factors for overuse injuries in soldiers. Background To determine the effects of different body armour types, carried loads, and walking speeds on trunk and lower-limb joint biomechanics. Within-subjects repeated measures to determine the effects of different body armour types, carried loads, and walking… Read More

10 Flat Feet Solutions for Military Training

Military fitness is a demanding practice for the whole body, but as your feet are at the very root of your entire being, it is often this region which absorbs the highest impact. For this reason, the fallen arches of flat feet can quickly turn into a training nightmare, due to the lack of support… Read More

Utilising Squatting as a Task for Improving Motor Function

Research Paper Title Kinematic, kinetic and EMG patterns during downward squatting. Background The aim of this study was to investigate the kinematic, kinetic, and electromyographic pattern before, during and after downward squatting when the trunk movement is restricted in the sagittal plane. Methods Eight healthy subjects performed downward squatting at two different positions, semisquatting (40… Read More

The Disciplines of Biomechanics & Kinesiology

The disciplines primarily involved in describing and understanding human movement are biomechanics and kinesiology. Fitness professionals teach clients how to perform exercise movements and how to use exercise or rehabilitation equipment. Biomechanics is the study of the motion and causes of motion of living things, using a branch of physics known as mechanics (the study… Read More
