LU Exercise Science Presents Four Studies
The Lakeland University Exercise Science Research Laboratory continues to be productive, despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Students presented four studies at the National Strength and Conditioning Association-Wisconsin State Clinic, which was held online on April 18.
Alicia Thone was lead author on the study titled, Biomechanics of sprint acceleration. Lakeland student Jack Shevalier, Randall Jensen, Ph.D., from Northern Michigan University and William Ebben, director of exercise science research at Lakeland, were co-authors.
Hunter Frisk was lead author of the study titled, The role of shoe sole durometer on jumping kinetics. Ebben was a co-author.
Frisk was also lead author on the study titled, Biomechanical analysis of the fastball thrown from the wind-up and the stretch. Lakeland students Madison Blankenship and Evan Martin, along with Ebben, were co-authors.
Megan Gold was lead author of the study titled, Kinetic analysis of the traditional and horizontal hang clean. Recent Lakeland graduates Garrett Duffin and Alyssa Stockero, current students Neenah Primas and Jack Shevalier and Ebben were co-authors.
A total of nine current and former exercise science students were involved in this research.
