  • Kenny, Ian C.; Wallace, Eric S.; Otto, Steve R. (Springer, 2008)
    In recent years studies have been carried out on single subjects, for example by Kinugasa et al., 2004. It has been reported that it is unlikely any two golfers will have an identical swing, and even that an individual ...
  • Breen, Sarah; Kenny, Ian C.; Harrison, Andrew J. (American College of Sports Medicine, 2015)
    Purpose: There is a scarcity of information on the long term adaptations in lower limb biomechanics during game specific movements after an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Particularly, variables such ...
  • Breen, Sarah; Kenny, Ian C.; Harrison, Andrew J. (American College of Sports Medicine/ Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2014)
    Purpose: There is a scarcity of information on the long term adaptations in lower limb biomechanics during game specific movements after an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Particularly, variables such ...
  • Kenny, Ian C.; Anderson, Ross (2010)
    INTRODUCTION: No study to date has reported if and how the use of body markers used in three dimensional optical tracking methods to study swing kinematics in golf affect movement performance. Egret et al. (2004) studied ...
  • Beattie, Kris; Lyons, Mark; Carson, Brian P.; Kenny, Ian C. (Physical Education and Sport Sciences, University of Limerick, 2015)
    Introduction Strength training can improve neuromuscular function in athletes (Zatsiorky, 1995). Previous literature has demonstrated that strength training can improve key performance indicators (i.e. economy, velocity ...
  • Beattie, Kris; Kenny, Ian C.; Lyons, Mark; Carson, Brian P. (Springer, 2014)
    BACKGROUND: Economy, velocity/power at maximal oxygen uptake ([Formula: see text]) and endurance-specific muscle power tests (i.e. maximal anaerobic running velocity; vMART), are now thought to be the best performance ...
  • Beattie, Kris; Carson, Brian P.; Lyons, Mark; Rossiter, Antonia; Kenny, Ian C. (Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2017)
    Running economy (RE) and velocity at maximal oxygen uptake (VV_ O2max) are considered to be the best physiological performance indicators in elite distance runners. In addition to cardiovascular function, RE and (VV_ ...
  • Tucker, Catherine; Kenny, Ian C.; Byrne, Derek; Anderson, Ross (Original Writing Ltd., 2009)
    INTRODUCTION: Typically, the standard club head mass of a driver is 0.2 kg approximately (White 2006). The golfing governing bodies do not stipulate driver club head mass. Theoretically, an increase in club head mass will ...
  • Comyns, Thomas M.; Kenny, Ian C.; Scales, Gerard (De Gruyter, 2015)
    The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of a low-load gluteal warm-up protocol on countermovement and squat jump performance. Research by Crow et al. (2012) found that a low-load gluteal warm-up could ...
  • Sherwin, Ian A.; Kenny, Ian C. (British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences, 2013)
    In golf, play on the green has a large impact on the final score (Pelz 2000, Dave Pelz’s Putting Bible) and a great amount of time is spent on practice greens to perfect the putting technique. There has been significant ...
  • Wallace, Eric S.; Kingston, Kieran; Strangwood, Martin; Kenny, Ian C. (Shaker Publishing Maastricht, 2008)
    This chapter aims to provide an overview of some of the key issues and developments in golf science over the last few years - essentially by reviewing some papers leading up to the last World Scientific Congress of Golf ...
  • Breen, Sarah; Harrison, Andrew J.; Kenny, Ian C. (2010)
    The purpose of the present study was to compare lower limb alignment at initial ground contact between groups with normal and abnormal hip rotation range of motion. Male (n=8) and female (n=8) subjects performed an maximal ...
  • Yeomans, Caithriona; Kenny, Ian C.; Cahalan, Róisin Máire; Warrington, Giles D.; Harrison, Andrew J.; Hayes, Kevin; Lyons, Mark; Campbell, Mark J.; Comyns, Thomas M. (Springer, 2018)
    Background Rugby union is a physically demanding, fullcontact team sport that has gained worldwide popularity. The incidence of injury in rugby union has been widely reported in the literature. While comprehensive injury ...
  • Kenny, Ian C.; Jeyram, Selva Prakash (Original Writing Ltd., 2009)
    INTRODUCTION: The present study aimed to investigate the influence of prophylactic ankle taping on jump performance, in the push off and the landing phase, for healthy subjects, for three types of jump. Ankle sprains ...
  • Kenny, Ian C.; Wallace, Eric S.; Otto, Steve R. (Routledge, 2008)
    The aim of this study was to determine how shaft length affects golf driving performance. A range of drivers with lengths between 1.168m and 1.270 m, representing lengths close to the 1.219m limit imposed by R&A Rules ...
  • Kenny, Ian C.; Wu, Can; McEvoy, Johnson (ISBS, 2011)
    This research aimed to investigate the effect of ankle taping on dynamic balance performance. Eighteen recreational athletes without any previous ankle sprain history performed six star excursion balance tests on each ...
  • Furlong, Laura-Anne M.; Rundle, Shane; Hallissey, Michael; Tucker, Catherine; Kenny, Ian C. (Department of Physical Education and Sports Sciences, University of Limerick, 2014)
    One of the key priorities in youth sport is adoption of an evidence-based practice approach to player management and welfare. Conditioning of these young athletes and reduction of injury incidence is necessary to ensure ...
  • Whelan, Niamh; Kenny, Ian C.; Harrison, Andrew J. (SAGE Publications, 2016)
    Coaches’ knowledge of drills and their specificity to sprint movement patterns and muscle activations has become increasingly important. Drills are used to encourage the development of optimal movement and coordination. ...
  • Breen, Sarah; Harrison, Andrew J.; Kenny, Ian C. (ISBS, 2011)
    The purpose of the present study was to compare the variability of movement and force production in ACL rehabilitated volunteers during landing from a maximal drop jump. Male (n=6) and female (n=7) volunteers with previous ...
  • Byrne, Derek; Kenny, Ian C. (2008)
    The widespread growth of golf is mainly due to its accessibility to people of all ages, socio-economic backgrounds and skill levels (Hume et al., 2005). To correspond with this increased participation, research in the area ...
