According to the spring mass model, leg stiffness (characterized by the measure of kleg) behavior is theoretically dependent on lower limb joint and trunk stiffness. Yet, the influence of the trunk as a possible regulator of kleg is unknown. This study investigated the influence of abdominal training on kleg during hopping tasks. Fourteen young male (age 18.5 ± 0.5 years, height 176.4 ± 4.3 cm, weight 69.9 ± 5.5 kg) soccer players (national level) participated in the study. Two groups (bracing… CONTINUE READING
