Relationship between shock attenuation and stride length during running at different velocities

  title={Relationship between shock attenuation and stride length during running at different velocities},
  author={John A. Mercer and Jason Thomas Vance and Alan Hreljac and Joseph Hamill},
  journal={European Journal of Applied Physiology},
The purpose of the study was to investigate the characteristics of shock attenuation during high-speed running. Maximal running speed was identified for each subject [n=8 males, 25 (SD 4.6) years; 80 (8.9) kg; 1.79 (0.06) m] as the highest speed that could be sustained for about 20 s on a treadmill. During testing, light-weight accelerometers were securely mounted to the surface of the distal antero-medial aspect of the leg and frontal aspect of the forehead. Subjects completed running… CONTINUE READING
