Abstract

It has been suggested that balancing the isokinetic strength of quadriceps (Q) and hamstring (H) muscles can reduce hamstring injuries during running (Croisier et al 2008). The efficacy of this type of intervention has been previously explored. To further the knowledge of the H: Q relationship we have examined the intervention’s affect on running technique as presented here.
