Neuromuscular function during knee exercises in water : with special reference to hydrodynamics and therapy
Published inStudies in sport, physical education and health
The present series of studies examined neuromuscular function during knee exercise in water and training responses of an aquatic exercise program. Emphasis was placed on the quantification of water resistance, the drag. Subjects who participated in this series of studies were 25-35-year-old healthy women and men. Neuromuscular function was examined using electromyography (EMG), force and reflex sensitivity measurements in the isometric condition on land and in water. EMG and angular velocity were measured during dynamic knee extension-flexion in still and flowing water. The drag forces acting on the leg and foot model were measured in the barefoot condition and with a large resistance boot.

Acute neuromuscular and hormonal responses and long-term adaptations to hypertrophic resistance training : with special reference to constant versus variable resistance Walker, Simon (University of Jyväskylä, 2012)
Rewald, Stefanie; Mesters, Ilse; Lenssen, Antoine F.; Bansi, Jens; Lambeck, Johan; Bie, Rob A. de; Waller, Benjamin (Public Library of Science, 2017)Over the past few years, aquatic cycling has become a trending fitness activity. However, the literature has not been reviewed exhaustively. Therefore, using scoping review methodology, the aim of this review was to explore ...
