An analysis of the rebound of the body in backward human running.

Abstract

Step frequency and energy expenditure are greater in backward running than in forward running. The differences in the motion of the centre of mass of the body associated with these findings are not known. These differences were measured here on nine trained subjects during backward and forward running steps on a force platform at 3-17 km h(-1). In contrast… (More)
