After years of research focused on the matter, we have reached a point where recent discoveries allow us to look past that dream and see a real possibility of extending our life span.

    Being a biarticular muscle group it may be stretched to extremes. When hamstring tears occur during kicking, either slow or fast movement, it involves concurrent hip flexion and knee extension. At deceleration, these muscles will contract, while being promptly lengthened. Therefore, they are performing eccentric contractions (Garrett et al, 1990.). It is well established that repeated eccentric contractions have the potential to damage muscle fibres (Armstrong et al,…

    lateral lip of the intertubercular groove of the humerus. The pectorals major flexes, medially rotates and adducts the humerus. Second, the deltoid originates from the lateral half part of the clavicle (anterior fibers), the acromion of the scapula (lateral fibers) and the spine of the scapula (posterior fibers). All the fibers merge on the deltoid tuberosity of the humerus.The anterior fibers flex and rotate the humerus medially. The lateral fibers abduct the humerus. The posterior fibers…

    positions themselves side on to the target. The main purpose of this phase is so the body can get into a rhythm which will make it easier for the throwing action to be more efficient. At the start of the wind up the athletes feet should be shoulder width apart and should be side on to the target. The athlete then extends their knee and strides outwards. This helps to develop momentum which is used in later stages of the throwing motion. This particular phase doesn’t put a lot of strain on the…

    Electrical stimulation: Eight self-adhesive 7x13 cm oval carbon electrodes were adhered to the skin over the quadriceps and hamstring muscles (four electrodes per leg). These muscles were selected because of their ease of access, clinical importance, and large size, which we reasoned would yield the greatest potential for altering energy expenditure. The distal margin of the distal quadriceps electrode was placed over the distal-most palpable border of the vastus lateralis. The proximal…

    preparatory phase is finally being used and put to action. This is usually characterized by near-maximal concentric activity in the involved muscles (Floyd, 2012, p. 207). During this phase the shooter will jump off their feet contracting their quadriceps using their hamstring muscles. The gastrocnemius, soleus, Achilles tendon, peroneus longus, peroneus brevis, tibialis posterior, flexor digitorum longus and the flexor halluces longus musles will act in plantar flexion making the shooter able…
