In collaboration with the Norwegian Olympic Sport Center in Oslo and IFK Clinic in Gothenburg Sweden, we are conducting a new research project to study the variations in force, velocity and power between unloaded and resisted sprints. Based on the results from testing we will design different resisted or assisted training protocols to study the effect on running speed.
In the figure you can see how we analyze force, velocity and power profiles using the method by Samozino and co-workers (Samozino et al., 2015).
Based upon the profiles of each athlete participating in the study, we will determine the type of training protocol to be implemented. Exciting times and we’ll keep you posted on the progress.
