This study investigated the effects of stride length (SL) manipulation on racewalking economy in 7 competitive racewalkers. Following two test sessions in which VO2 max and freely-chosen stride length (FCSL) were determined, each subject completed 6-min racewalking bouts at five randomly-ordered SL conditions (FCSL and -10%, -5%, +5%, and +10% of leg length from the FCSL) while walking at a velocity approximately equal to their 10 km training pace. Actual and predicted group mean VO2 values for… CONTINUE READING
