Ground Reaction Force During Sprint Acceleration

Abstract: Abrupt changes in kinematics during sprint acceleration called transitions have previously been observed. This study aimed to examine whether ground reaction force (GRF) variables during sprint acceleration also show specific features of the transitions. Twenty-one male sprinters performed 60-m sprints, during which GRF data were recorded. Step-to-step spatiotemporal and GRF variables were approximated using …
