Abstract


The purpose of this study is that investigate if step skill exercise or verbal and V i a l exercise affect the height of center of gravity (COG), kinematics and performance during deceleration. Sample size are 24 people (step skill exercise, n= 12; Verbal and visual exercise,n=12) . In the result, step skill exercise increased knee joint flexion angles in stop and deceleration. Furthermore step skill exercise decreased the height of COG only deceleration. However step skill exercise increased performance time ( reaction time) and had a negative impact.
