Sean Maloney - Show Notes
In this episode, Dr Sean Maloney and I discuss stiffness and its associations with performance and injury risk. Sean is Strength and Conditioning coach for a range of athletes including Badminton England Juniors and a part time lecturer at the University of Bedfordshire and Middlesex University. Sean received his PhD from the University of Bedfordshire in the field of biomechanics.
Key papers highlighted:
Lower limb stiffness testing in athletic performance: a critical review
Lower Extremity Stiffness: Considerations for Testing, Performance Enhancement, and Injury Risk
Tendon stiffness: methods of measurement and significance for the control of movement. A review
Passive and active muscle stiffness in plantar flexors of long distance runners
Acute effects of static stretching on leg-spring behavior during hopping
Is passive metatarsophalangeal joint stiffness related to leg stiffness, vertical stiffness and running economy during sub-maximal running?
Investigation into the relationship between the passive flexibility and active stiffness of the ankle plantar-flexor muscles
Passive dorsiflexion stiffness is poorly correlated with passive dorsiflexion range of motion
Effects of passive ankle dorsiflexion stiffness on ankle mechanics during drop landings
Dynamic stretching does not change the stiffness of the muscle-tendon unit
Do stiffness and asymmetries predict change of direction performance?
A comparison of methods to determine bilateral asymmetries in vertical leg stiffness
Vertical stiffness asymmetries during drop jumping are related to ankle stiffness asymmetries
