Support Research in Perth

For all you boys in Perth (kid boys, that is - you have to be 40 or younger). A PhD project at ECU:

Anatomical and physiological factors influencing force production capabilities

To be eligible for this study you must be a male endurance trained runner aged between 19-40 years and run a minimum of 40km per week, on most weeks of the year

Each participant will complete six separate testing sessions. This includes a ‘familiarisation session’ where you will be introduced to the two strength testing protocols, two separate strength testing sessions to assess both the isometric (static) and isokinetic (dynamic) strength of your quadriceps muscles, an ultrasound session to assess the architecture of your quadriceps muscles. In the final session you will complete a VO2 max test.

You will receive: A free VO2 max test valued at $150 from which you can find out your maximal aerobic capacity and training zones. Any discrepancies between your quadriceps and hamstring muscle groups may also be identified during the strength testing procedures and the information for all the tests may help add further direction to your training programs.

If you would like to participate, or have any questions and would like further information regarding this study, please contact Joanne Trezise at j.trezise@ecu.edu.au or you may call on 0435 102 182.
