Thematic area 3: – Muscle strength imbalances, exercise and performance

Co-ordinator: Konstantinos Salonikidis, Assistant Professor

  • Muscle strength and functional imbalances: Investigation of antagonistic muscle pairs during sport movements mainly in racket sports.
  • Training effects on performance and muscle strength imbalances: Designing and implementation of training interventions for improving athletic performance, but also to avoid negative imbalances in specific muscles, which can lead to pathological conditions.
  • Force steadiness and accuracy: Examination of steadiness during development of isometric force and its relation to accuracy in throwing tasks.
