The Science Behind Tendon Training

Understanding Tendon Extensibility Tendon extensibility is a fundamental capacity for our movement and susceptibility to injuries, especially in the context of sports performance. This property refers to the ability of the tendon to lengthen under tension, something crucial in explosive movements. A tendon rupture does not occur solely due to overstretching; it is an overstretching […]

Maximum Speed Mechanisms in the Sprint

1. Contact Distance, Contact Time, and Vertical Force To begin, we examine the relationship between contact distance, contact time, and vertical force requirements. During the ground contact phase, the contact excursion angle is the total angle traveled by the leg. For most runners, this angle varies between 50 and 60 degrees, or approximately one radian. […]
