This study was limited due to the small sample size. Although the conclusions are valid, more research with a
In tennis serve the summation of forces is important as athletes wants to reach maximum speed and accuracy, which through the correct sequence of body movement this greater force will be generated (Geiblinger, 2016).
An alpha level of p<.05 was used for all statistical test. The participants were described by descriptive statistics. The t-test, chi-square, and
In review, the serve in tennis is very crucial, but it can also be broken down into simple and achievable steps. The wanted results may not happen every time, but with these guidelines and dedication, a player will be ready for the USTA Pro Circuit in no
With performance analysts, sports scientists, and physiotherapists growing in demand, with the ever more focused objectives within the sporting world on achieving the best results possible, I am eager to study a subject that is continually flourishing in opportunities. With the margins between victory and defeat becoming ever more miniscule the necessity to find that two percent increase in speed or a set of practices to improve the task cohesion of a team is a demand placed on many managers and scientists. With an overwhelming amount of world records, this summer’s Olympics highlighted just how these scientists are continuing to push our athlete’s potentials further than ever thought possible. With the technology and understanding of the human anatomy advancing, it is an exciting time to be completing a degree in Sport Science and I look forward
These results might be explained by the improvement of proprioception made possible by the vibratory stimulus which induces a reflex muscle contraction perpetuated in time. It determines an increase in the activation and neuromuscular response as well as ability to produce strength and muscle power. Thanks to these results it is possible a recovery of the muscle parameters such as peak torque and power muscles. These results indicate a potential rehabilitation program for athletes who practice competitive sports with high demand to recover in the shortest time possible, while also returning to a high-level
The role of ballistic movements in any given fitness training protocol in sports is that they allow an individual's body to obtain and contain muscle contractions with high velocities, maximum force, high firing rates, and brief contraction times. Regulation of muscle contraction is important since the muscles involved exhibit the capacity to grow and gain strength. Ballistic movements incorporate the central nervous system (CNS) whose responsibility is to create energy to be used in the shortest time possible (McMaster,
The behavior of biomechanics works upon many different sports. The sport of tennis requires a lot of mix movement and equipment, and an understanding of those aspects of sport science of the games. The concepts of biomechanics and principals play a big role in the players’ development from sport science. Biomechanics is a key area in player development because all strokes have a fundamental mechanical understanding and sports. There are seven principles that can apply to the dynamics movements in tennis.
The most impacted moment to realize the value of biomechanics study is a case of high school tennis player. He complained shoulder strain and impingement syndrome, and I helped him as a personal trainer. He did not have a major problem based on standard clinical measurements such as shoulder range of motion, flexibility of the trunk, and scapular strength. Those normal clinical evaluations did have a limitation because it focuses on the symptoms of the injury, not the cause of the injury. To find a true cause of the injury, I took a video record of his tennis serve to analyze his movement. I showed the video to the professor, Dr. Myers at Texas State University who is a tennis serve movement specialist, gave me an excellent feedback that pointed out his poor serve movements such as hypo-cocking and poor trunk rotation. These traits could not be
In order to better understand the results from our study, it will beneficial to look at past studies. This will help highlight the comparisons between our results and theirs. By doing this, it will become clear if their methods compared to ours, thus resulting in either more or less accurate results. This will make the strengths and weaknesses of our study more apparent.
Subjects are to maintain this new behavior for a length of 90 days; however I believe that after this time frame the subjects will notice many of the positive effects exercise has on the human body. With their realization of the benefits exercise has to offer is taken as a positive reinforcement, subjects would continue to incorporate
A total of forty subjects (n=40) were recruited. Sample size was calculated on the basis of previous researches by G power 3.1.5 software. Level of significance was kept 0.05, effect size of the study was 0.94 , with 80% power (1- ᵝ).
With any study, there are limitations that are not counted for in the study, which may result unfavorably. Because we found no significance in all but one hypotheses, many factors may be contributed.
The differences in various results discussed in this paper stem from the fact that most of the studies were carried out using different sampling
As this research is focussed on limited group and a limited area space it is not enough to study
