    Now this sounds like a great study... well, the topic sure is a great one. One that is certainly requiring much careful analysis... & would also spark much interest. I would think Alberto Salazar would be interested in this... I know he has been keen to tweak the form/technique of his athletes.

    Well that abstract sure is a dangling carrot. I too would love a copy of the paper.

    Anyway, in the mean time, I'm sure some here would find the following video (unique form of technique training with Alberto Salazar & Galen Rupp) quite interesting...

    Wow! Has anyone alerted George Osborn chancellor of the exchequer (treasury secretary U.S.) to this latest research.;)

    Hi All

    I've spent the last week or so downloading and reading thru many of the papers cited in this thread that examine primarily Running efficiency. or secondarily optimum performance. relative to biomechanical variables that can be altered on some way.
    The overall conclusion I came to was that there are many observable and changeable variables such as stride length and frequency, available moment arms, push off relative to swing phase , alignment of 3D GRF at propulsive phase in terms of the standing leg, leg stiffness, shoe type/construction/materials, shoe weight, muscle strength relative to mass, strength relative to age, stride length relative to leg length etc, but most all these things are intrinsically and or extrinsically relative with no absolute value. Some things a patently obvious - so if you want to go faster then increase cadence and stride length - no surprise but if you want to run longer for less energy consumption per unit distance then shorter strides with increased cadence, except unless you have relatively long legs but not for everyone who has long legs. There are many examples of elite athletes that don't fit the paradigms, which is confounding. It appears the best way to improve is to train more with a good coach and well trained runner choose self selected gait that gives optimum efficiency or performance for that individual. So have we really learned much for all the research? Is it worth all the effort? do we/coach's already know what works? Are there any measures that you find improve efficiency, or performance? of course reducing injury potential is another consideration but maybe interventions are not as ambiguous unless we also want to keep up performance at the same time.

    Which is contrary to many others who find that RE is associated with shorter stance phase - So now what ??

    Yes! Have only had time to skim over the post (quick search as result of the email notice)... & I was left thinking the same thing (i.e. shorter contact time = better RE [not longer contact time])... been nagging at me ever since o_O. Maybe I need to read the study more thoroughly... but I thought I would have got the gist of their point in NewsBot's post... :confused::confused:
