Teaching adults to ride a bike through a novel cycling task: Differences of electromyography activity, gait and posture between bikers and non-bikers on a balance bike.
A balance bike, a bike without pedals, involves the rider walking or sprinting while sitting on it and is anecdotally regarded as a safe tool for learning to cycle quicker due to a similar balance strategy. It has been adopted to be a transferring skill for learning to cycle. This project aims 1) to investigate the differences of muscle activity and riding kinematics on a balance bike between adults with and without experience in cycling, 2) to investigate whether participating in balance bike t . . .

EdU Touch Resource Pack - Phase 2
Rugby is one of the most popular sports worldwide and has received much scientific attention. Emphasis has been placed on the movement and physiological demands of rugby trainings and matches (Beaven, et al., 2014) and recovery strategies (Chow, et al., 2017; 2018). Playing recreational touch rugby has been evidenced to improve the cardiovascular autonomic control of sedentary subjects (Filliau, et al., 2014), which provide encouraging support to the aims of promoting MVPA60 in schools.
