UNLABELLED In the military context, soldiers carry equipments of total mass often exceeding 30%-40% of their body mass (BM) and complexly distributed around their body (backpack, weapons, electronics, protections, etc.), which represents severe load carrying conditions. PURPOSE This study aimed to better understand the effects of load carriage on walking energetics and mechanics during military-type walking. METHODS Ten male infantrymen recently retired from the French Foreign Legion… CONTINUE READING
