Successfully studying dance on campus as a dance major, dance minor, or dance enthusiast requires you to push yourself as a student. </div> </div> Thu, 23 Oct 2014 05:52:00 +0000 http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/depth-and-breadth-of-your-campus-dance-education Interact with your campus community http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/interact-with-your-campus-community <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ItemTeaser3" style="float:left;"> Of course, the best way to learn about your campus and your department is to interact with your campus community. Students who are more proactive in meeting with their faculty, getting to know upper division students, and joining campus organizations have a better awareness of the expectations of their departments and campus. </div> </div> Thu, 23 Oct 2014 05:41:00 +0000 http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/interact-with-your-campus-community Attending a Competition http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/attending-a-competition <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ItemTeaser4" style="float:left;"> The number one rule about arriving at a competition is to arrive early so you don’t have to rush. Sign in with the tournament director, find out your lane assignment (where you will be shooting), and review any rules you might have questions about. </div> </div> Wed, 22 Oct 2014 08:32:00 +0000 http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/attending-a-competition Traditional, Target, Field, and 3D Equipment Setups http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/traditional-target-field-and-3d-equipment-setups <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ItemTeaser5" style="float:left;"> In archery each setup is unique and suited to a particular type of competition. Four commonly used setups are traditional, target, field, and 3D. Traditional archers use the bare minimum of equipment (figure 3.6). The traditional archer prefers to shoot barebow because it lacks any sights or accessories. </div> </div> Wed, 22 Oct 2014 08:26:00 +0000 http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/traditional-target-field-and-3d-equipment-setups Before you buy: Bow styles, parts of a bow, and draw length http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/before-you-buy-bow-styles-parts-of-a-bow-and-draw-length <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ItemTeaser6" style="float:left;"> Bows come in the following three basic styles: Longbow: The longbow is usually made from a single stick of material. It is straight when unstrung and forms a simple backward curve when strung. </div> </div> Wed, 22 Oct 2014 08:11:00 +0000 http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/before-you-buy-bow-styles-parts-of-a-bow-and-draw-length Four places to use Best New Games outside of school http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/four-places-to-use-best-new-games-outside-of-school <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ItemTeaser7" style="float:left;"> New Games in general don’t have quite the same hard edge as traditional team-building exercises because they are played first for fun. </div> </div> Sun, 19 Oct 2014 14:22:00 +0000 http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/four-places-to-use-best-new-games-outside-of-school Go Coach Basketball&nbsp;app just 99 cents for a limited time http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/go-coach-basketballnbspapp-just-99-cents-for-a-limited-time <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ItemTeaser8" style="float:left;"> Mobile app for youth basketball coaches; great for practice planning and skill demonstration. </div> </div> Sun, 19 Oct 2014 10:00:00 +0000 http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/go-coach-basketballnbspapp-just-99-cents-for-a-limited-time Recommended balance training programs for older adults http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/recommended-balance-training-programs-for-older-adults <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ItemTeaser9" style="float:left;"> The ACSM’s 2008 "Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans" suggests balance training at least 3 days a week for inactive and active older adults (\gte\65 yr). In a position statement on exercise for older adults (Chodzko-Zajko et al. 2009), the ACSM also recommended that older adults engage in balance activities at least two times week. </div> </div> Sun, 19 Oct 2014 09:26:00 +0000 http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/recommended-balance-training-programs-for-older-adults How much should I weigh? http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/how-much-should-i-weigh <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ItemTeaser10" style="float:left;"> The fat measurement helps put in perspective the proportion of an athlete’s body that is muscle, bone, essential fat, and excess flab. </div> </div> Sun, 19 Oct 2014 08:48:00 +0000 http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/how-much-should-i-weigh 150 match-tested drills in enhanced edition of Wrestling Drill Book 2E http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/-150-match-tested-drills-in-enhanced-edition-of-wrestling-drill-book-2e <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ItemTeaser11" style="float:left;"> Best-selling wrestling drill book now available through Apple iBookstore and Amazon Kindle store </div> </div> Sun, 19 Oct 2014 08:24:00 +0000 http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/-150-match-tested-drills-in-enhanced-edition-of-wrestling-drill-book-2e The Depths of Hell and Crazy 8s http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/the-depths-of-hell-and-crazy-8s <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ItemTeaser12" style="float:left;"> There may be no exercise better suited for improving vertical leap than the depth jump. There also may be no exercise more demanding on your ankle and knee joints. Be sure to have mastered box jumps and bounding drills before taking on the depth jump. And when you do tackle this movement, start off on a low box (12 inches [30 cm] or lower), and limit the number of contacts until you gain experience with the exercise. </div> </div> Sun, 19 Oct 2014 08:22:00 +0000 http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/the-depths-of-hell-and-crazy-8s Optimal Techniques for Soccer Movement http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/optimal-techniques-for-soccer-movement <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ItemTeaser13" style="float:left;"> In learning optimal techniques for performing the various movements in the target classifications, players need to focus on target mechanics. In other words, effective movement needs to be based on sound mechanical principles. </div> </div> Sun, 19 Oct 2014 08:20:00 +0000 http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/optimal-techniques-for-soccer-movement An Introduction to Intensity http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/an-introduction-to-intensity <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ItemTeaser14" style="float:left;"> As I mentioned in the introduction, this book is not meant to be a review of research studies on the benefits of high-intensity training (HIT). I want you to jump in, start training, and get the results you are looking for. However, it’s always good to understand the thinking and mechanisms behind any training plan you engage in. </div> </div> Sun, 19 Oct 2014 07:47:00 +0000 http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/an-introduction-to-intensity Using musculoskeletal optimization models to generate control signals http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/using-musculoskeletal-optimization-models-to-generate-control-signals <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ItemTeaser15" style="float:left;"> A popular method for generating control signals in musculoskeletal models is to use some form of optimization. </div> </div> Sun, 19 Oct 2014 06:29:00 +0000 http://humankinetics.com/news-and-excerpts/news-and-excerpts/using-musculoskeletal-optimization-models-to-generate-control-signals
