Immediate effect of shorter duration dynamic stretching on peak hamstrings and quadriceps torque and functional H:Q ratio in football playersAuthor(s):
Rupali Shevalkar and Dolly PatelAbstract:
There are mixed literature review on effect of dynamic stretching on peak quadriceps and hamstring torque as well functional H/Q ratio. Long duration dynamic stretching proved to decrease the muscle torque hence effect of shorter duration dynamic stretching protocol was studied in football players. Eighteen amature football players, both males and females between age group of 18-25, playing for atleast 2 years were selected. Pre and Post 5 minutes dynamic hamstring and qudriceps stretching, peak muscle torque and functional H/Q ratio was evaluated using HUMAC NORM isokinetic system. Data was statistically analysed using Graph Pad instat 3.10 version. The result showed peak quadriceps and hamstring torque improved and H/Q ratio was decreased significantly post stretching.Pages: 82-90 | 271 Views 24 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
