OPTIMISING RUNNING MECHANICS FOR LONG-DISTANCE RUNNING: ALIGNING GROUND REACTION FORCE AND LONGITUDINAL LEG AXIS VECTORS
Keywords: running gait, oxygen consumption, performance
AbstractThis study examined whether changes in running economy were associated with changes in alignment of the resultant ground reaction force (GRF) and leg axis and consequent changes in joint moment arms after a ten-week running programme (10wkRP). Ten novice, female runners completed a 10wkRP with biomechanical and physiological testing occurring both pre- and post-10wkRP. Oxygen consumption (
