The purpose of this study was to examine the difference between two types of
the soccer instep kick in temporal sequence of motion and muscle
electromyography, during forward swing phase of the kick. Ten elite soccer
players, volunteered as subjects in the study. To culculate the kinematics data,
we used DLT method with two video camera that filmed five markers fixed on
anatomical points of lower body, at 240 fpm. Moreover the electromyography of
rectus femoris, vastus medialis and tibialis anterior were estimated. Kinematic
data from ten players was extracted using image processing toolbox of
MATLAB software. Using these results, we compared sequences of joint motion
and progression of activation muscle in low drive and high drive kick. The
results indicate that there was a difference in ranks of muscle activation
between two kick, but there were no difference in muscles activation time and
sequence of joint motion between low drive and high drive kick. Furthermore
both kicks have a similar proximal-distal pattern and interaction in muscles
contraction and joints motion
