  • Dowd, Kieran P.; Purtill, Helen; Harrington, Deirdre M.; Hislop, Jane F.; Reilly, John J.; Donnelly, Alan Edward (Human Kinetics, 2017)
    Objectives: This study aims to determine the minimum number of days of monitoring required to reliably predict sitting/lying time, standing time, light intensity physical activity (LIPA), moderate-to-vigorous intensity ...
  • Clancy, Rachel B.; Herring, Matthew P.; Campbell, Mark J. (Frontiers Media, 2017)
    Motivation is widely-researched, in both sport psychology and other fields. As rigorous measurement is essential to understanding this latent construct, a critical appraisal of measurement instruments is needed. Thus, ...
  • Howard, Róisín Marie; Conway, Richard; Harrison, Andrew J. (Taylor and Francis, 2017)
    In the shot put, the athlete's muscles are responsible for generating the impulses to move the athlete and project the shot into the air. Information on phasic muscle activity is lacking for the glide shot put event and ...
  • Howard, Róisín Marie; Conway, Richard; Harrison, Andrew J. (Taylor and Francis, 2018)
    The use of electromyography (EMG) is widely recognised as a valuable tool for enhancing the understanding of performance drivers and potential injury risk in sprinting. The timings of muscle activations relative to running ...
  • Úbeda, Natalia; Carson, Brian P.; García-González, Ángela; Aguilar-Ros, Antonio; Díaz-Martínez, Ángel Enrique; Venta, Rafael; Terrados, Nicolás; O'Gorman, Donal J.; Iglesias-Gutiérrez, Eduardo (NRC Research Press, 2018)
    Acute exercise seems to increase total plasma homocysteine (tHcy); since this variable associated with cardiovascular risk, it is important to understand the determinants of its response to all types of exercise. The aim ...
  • Healy, Robin; Norris, Michelle; Kenny, Ian C.; Harrison, Andrew J. (Elsevier, 2016)
    This study assessed the validity of a novel protocol in the measurement of 5 and 10 m sprint time from standing and block starts. Sprint time was assessed using high speed video timing and a novel method which incorporated ...
  • Healy, Robin; Smyth, Carol; Harrison, Andrew J. (International Society of Biomechanics in Sport, 2017)
    This study examined the relationships between reactive strength measures and sprint performance. Ten female sprinters performed bilateral vertical hops and drop jumps (DJs) from 0.3 m and 40 m sprints. Ground contact ...
  • Healy, Robin; Kenny, Ian C.; Harrison, Andrew J. (Physical Education and Sport Sciences, 2015)
    Introduction Although the use of resistance training in athletics is commonplace, a paucity of research exists examining the longitudinal effects of resistance training and its effect on performance in sprinters (Bolger ...
  • Clancy, Rachel B.; Herring, Matthew P.; MacIntyre, Tadhg E.; Campbell, Mark J. (Elsevier, 2016)
    Objectives: The purpose of this review was to synthesise contemporary research on competitive sport motivation (1995e2016) with a view to identifying trends and gaps in sample characteristics, research designs and ...
  • McKenna, Seán G.; Donnelly, Alan Edward; Fraser, Alexander D.; Kennedy, Norelee (Taylor and Francis, 2017)
    Purpose: Sleep is important in maintaining the body’s circadian rhythm and in maintaining health. Aim was to investigate sleep and physical activity among people who have Inflammatory Arthritis and their engagement with ...
  • Howard, Róisín Marie; Conway, Richard; Harrison, Andrew J. (Taylor and Francies, 2016)
    This paper examines the use of sensor devices in sports biomechanics, focusing on current frequency of use of Electromyography (EMG) device preferences. Researchers in the International Society of Biomechanics in Sports ...
  • Howard, Róisín Marie; Conway, Richard; Harrison, Andrew J. (International Society of Biomechanics, 2015)
    The purpose of this study was to explore the use of Independent Component Analysis (ICA) on Electromyography (EMG) data to distinguish between individual muscle activations due to its capabilities of signal separation. ...
