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

Article
This study aimed to measure agreement between using Samozino’s method and force plates to determine mean force, velocity, and power during unloaded and loaded barbell and hexbar countermovement jumps. Twenty-one subjects performed countermovement jumps against incremental loads using both loading conditions. Ground reaction force was recorded using...
Article
Elite sprint performances typically peak during an athlete’s twenties, and decline thereafter with age. The mechanisms underpinning this sprint performance decline are often reported to be strength-based in nature, with reductions in strength capacities driving increases in ground contact time and decreases in stride lengths and frequency. However,...

Elite sprint performances typically peak during an athlete’s 20s and decline thereafter with age. The mechanisms underpinning this sprint performance decline are often reported to be strength-based in nature with reductions in strength capacities driving increases in ground contact time and decreases in stride lengths and frequency. However, an as-...

Sport scientists and strength and conditioning coaches are showing growing interest in the magnitude, orientation, and application of ground reaction force during acceleration actions in sport, as it can identify the key mechanical determinants of performance. Horizontal force-velocity pro-filing or sprint profiling helps practitioners understand t...
Article
Full-text available
Resisted sprint training (RST) and assisted sprint training (AST) are methods used to overload the neuromuscular and physiological systems with the aim of causing adaptations that transfer to ‘free’ maximal sprinting (MS). This review of more than 50 publications summarises the effects of RST and AST with the aim of assisting coaches to understand...
