Effects of Three Types of Resisted Sprint Training Devices on the Kinematics of Sprinting at Maximum Velocity
TLDR
We compared the kinematics of sprinting at maximum velocity to sprinting when using three of types of resisted sprint training devices (sled, parachute, and weight belt). Expand

Energy loss in the pole vault take‐off and the advantage of the flexible pole
A model of pole vaulting with a flexible pole was developed with the aim of predicting the optimum take-off technique and pole characteristics for a typical world-class pole vaulter. The key featuresExpand

Effect of the coefficient of friction of a running surface on sprint time in a sled-towing exercise
This study investigated the effect of the coefficient of friction of a running surface on an athlete's sprint time in a sled-towing exercise. The coefficients of friction of four common sportsExpand

Optimum take-off angle in the long jump
In this study, we found that the optimum take-off angle for a long jumper may be predicted by combining the equation for the range of a projectile in free flight with the measured relations betweenExpand

Mathematical model of the takeoff phase in the pole vault
A mathematical model is presented of the takeoff phase in the pole vault for an athlete vaulting with a rigid pole. An expression is derived that gives the maximum height that the vaulter may grip onExpand
