World records in running are described with very high precision by v n dt=const. 5m to beyond a marathon and could be divided into four ranges with highly constant n in each range. 229. As running a world record describes the maximum load that can be bourn in this situation. This formula is a PBR too. (Nicol, 1996, 1998) In spite of the differences, it can be seen that these studies result in PBRs which have a structure in common with the mechanic ones: VI n dt) m =constant The differences are that:    in mechanical PBRs, m may be an integer larger than zero, whereas biomechanical PBR require m=1 in the case of biomechanical PBRs, n does not have to be an integer because the empirical data may show a ―best fit‖ to require a non-integer.

Arts Biomechanics – An Infant Science 19 Figure 11. EMG of rectus abdominis during voluntary breathing – the process establishing enveloped and normalized EMG for quasi-quantification. Figure 12. Rectus abdominis activity at different pitches. Figure 12 is a composite of three different trials measuring the rectus abdominis activity of a professional opera singer (mezzo-soprano). The rectus abdominis MVC was determined in a separate trial under high loading conditions. The protocol involved two sets of singing four short onsets (intonation of a pitch) followed by a sustained tone produced on the same pitch.

That, at comparable load levels, static or quasi-static loads are more injurious than dynamic ones; making quality of load a primary factor to consider when assessing injury risk Arts Biomechanics – An Infant Science 33 4. that the intensity of a series of dynamic load cycles with small intermediate recovery phases may be considerably higher than the intensity of static load of equal duration without causing injury 5. that risk is directly related to the PBR and Intensityn  Duration of Activity, and 6.
