Brief Summary:
The aim was to analyze the influence of fatigue on the dynamic postural control in one-leg standing and in jump landing, followed by stabilization or side jumps, and to compare athletes of different levels with control subjects.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Exercise
All participants had to run 20min on their individual anaerobic threshold
Other: treadmill run

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change of force ratio of ground reaction forces in/after landing from baseline [ Time Frame: 1, 5, 10, 15, 20 min after exercise ]
  2. Change of the velocity of the center of pressure (COP) from baseline [ Time Frame: 1, 5, 10, 15, 20 min after the exercise ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change of rate of perceived exertion (Borg Scale) from baseline [ Time Frame: every 10 min during and 1, 5, 10, 15, 20 min after exercise ]
