Sprint mechanics in world‐class athletes: a new insight into the limits of human locomotion
The objective of this study was to characterize the mechanics of maximal running sprint acceleration in high‐level athletes. Four elite (100‐m best time 9.95–10.29 s) and five sub‐elite (10.40–10.60Expand

A simple method for measuring power, force, velocity properties, and mechanical effectiveness in sprint running
This study aimed to validate a simple field method for determining force– and power–velocity relationships and mechanical effectiveness of force application during sprint running. The proposedExpand

Spring-mass model characteristics during sprint running: correlation with performance and fatigue-induced changes.
Spring-mass model properties of eight non-specialized male runners were measured during four straight 100-m sprints on an athletics track. A recently developed simple measurement method allowed toExpand

Optimal force-velocity profile in ballistic movements--altius: citius or fortius?.
PURPOSE The study's purpose was to determine the respective influences of the maximal power (Pmax) and the force-velocity (F-v) mechanical profile of the lower limb neuromuscular system onExpand

Effects of altered stride frequency and contact time on leg-spring behavior in human running.
Many studies have demonstrated that contact time is a key factor affecting both the energetics and mechanics of running. The purpose of the present study was to further explore the relationshipsExpand

Do mechanical gait parameters explain the higher metabolic cost of walking in obese adolescents?
Net metabolic cost of walking normalized by body mass (C(W.BM(-1)); in J.kg(-1).m(-1)) is greater in obese than in normal-weight individuals, and biomechanical differences could be responsible forExpand

Force-velocity profile: imbalance determination and effect on lower limb ballistic performance.
This study sought to lend experimental support to the theoretical influence of force-velocity (F-v) mechanical profile on jumping performance independently from the effect of maximal power output (PExpand
