    BMC Musculoskelet Disord 16:348. 2015
    ..Therefore, the purpose of the study presented in this paper was to determine if hamstring-quadriceps co-activation alters knee joint kinematics, and also establish if it affects ACL elongation...

    J Electromyogr Kinesiol 24:704-10. 2014
    ..Results suggest that muscle pre-activation strategies play a role in modulating Kvert for change of direction manoeuvre. ..

    J Strength Cond Res 26:3160-76. 2012
    ..However, the importance of dynamic knee joint stability is highlighted. It is also suggested that novel methods for preventing ACL injury be investigated and developed...

    Benjamin G Serpell
    Canberra Hospital, Trauma and Orthopaedic Research Unit, Woden, Australia
    J Sports Sci 30:1347-63. 2012
    ..For leg stiffness it was and change in leg length, and for the knee it was the quotient of knee joint moments and change in joint angle. Sample size issues and measurement techniques were identified as limitations to current research...
  5. doi The development of a new test of agility for rugby league
    Benjamin G Serpell
    School of Human Movement and Sport Sciences, University of Ballarat, Ballarat, Victoria, Australia
    J Strength Cond Res 24:3270-7. 2010
    ..Performance differences on the RAT were attributed to differences in perceptual skills and/or reaction ability. Testing and training agility should therefore stress those dimensions of agility and not just CODS...

    School of Human Movement and Sport Sciences, University of Ballarat, Ballarat, Australia
    J Strength Cond Res 25:1240-8. 2011
    ..Results from this study suggest that the perceptual and decision-making components of agility are trainable. Coaches should incorporate some open motor skills training in their programs when training agility...
