Randall Jensen (HPER) co-authored a paper titled "Using squat repetition maximum testing to determine hamstring resistance training exercise loads," which was published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. The paper provides strength and conditioning professionals with a way to determine load assignment for the hamstring muscles on the basis of squat testing. The hamstring muscle group should be trained to potentially decrease the likelihood of hamstring and possibly Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury. Because ACL injuries account for 12-15 percent of all athletic injuries and can often result in the end of athletic career, ways to reduce this debilitating injury have been widely sought. Results of this paper might assist in this elusive goal. Lead author William (Bill) Ebben was
a member of the NMU Counseling Center and graduated from Northern with a master's degree in exercise science before joining Marquette University as a faculty member in the School of Physical Therapy's exercise science program.
Tawni Ferrarini (Economics) co-wrote a guest column titled "Spring Break Can Break You" for the Herald Tribune in Sarasota, Fla. Her collaborator was Mark Schug, professor emeritus at the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee.
