Hamstring muscle function in high-speed running and in hamstring exercisesSpeaker : András HEGYI

Summary : Recent research revealed regional differences in activation within several muscles, which has been linked to region-specific muscle adaptations to stimuli such as pain, fatigue, and training. Non-uniform within- and between-muscle distribution of hamstring injuries may be linked to non-uniform within- and between-muscle distribution of muscle activity. This presentation will summarize the recent work of András on regional differences in hamstring muscle activity during hamstring exercises, and in high injury-risk movements such as high-speed running, as explored by high-density electromyography.

Biography : András Hegyi is a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Nantes, France. He received his MSc in kinesiology from the Semmelweis University, Hungary in 2013 then received a biomechanics PhD from the University of Jyväskylä, Finland in 2020. His research interests lie in the area of motor control and muscle-tendon function in humans. During his PhD, András visited several laboratories for 1-6 months including the University of Nantes, Université Cote d'Azur, Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences (Stockholm), and the University of Physical Education (Budapest) to study hamstrings with experts on different methods such as intramuscular EMG and shear-wave elastography. András's current research focuses on sprint performance and its association with muscle size, architecture, strength, and coordination of the lower extremity in elite athletes from sprint-based sports.
