Joint mobility is an advantage to sport technique optimization. The aim of this work was to examine the relationships between hip angular velocity and angular acceleration and the tension level of Rectus Femoris (RF), Vastus Medialis (VM) and Biceps Femoris (BF) muscles during execution of a ballistic stretching exercise. Measurements of body segments’ kinematics were made using a motion capture system (Xsens) synchronized with an EMG capture system (Delsys). Obtained results have shown that a reliable methodology has been developed that allows studying physiologic and functional behavior of biokinematics unity.
