OBJECTIVE A study was conducted to investigate the possible effects of fatigue on the heel strike-initiated shock accelerations and on attenuation of these shocks along the body during eccentric muscle contractions. DESIGN Level and decline running on a treadmill were used to acquire the experimental data on the foot strike-initiated shock accelerations. BACKGROUND Eccentric contractions of the lower limb muscles in combination with shock generation and propagation during downhill running… CONTINUE READING
