How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
In track sprinting, acceleration performance is largely determined by the ability to generate a high ratio of forces (RF), but the technical features associated with this remain unknown. This study therefore investigated the relationships between selected kinematic characteristics and RF during the initial acceleration phase. Fourteen male sprinter...
The relationship between the linearity of the ratio of forces (RF)-horizontal velocity (vH) profile and initial acceleration (IA) performance was investigated in trained sprinters. Ground reaction force data from the IA phase of a maximal sprint from a block start were analysed. The coefficient of determination of the linear trendline fitted to fou...
