Running Biomechanics

Increase efficiency, strength & speed
Andrew Hamilton

The term biomechanics is used in a variety of ways. Most simply,  biomechanics can be translated as ‘The evaluation of movement technique’ (eg walking, running, skiing, sporting biomechanics) and it’s a term often used in clinical circles.

It is important to realise that you can look at the biomechanics of the body as a whole or any one part of it; ie foot biomechanics, shoulder biomechanics and biomechanics of the body while executing a particular movement, eg running, jumping or throwing.

Most athletes have heard of biomechanics, and the importance of wearing the correct footwear to prevent injury. But what is biomechanics? And how does it affect the rest of the body and your running performance?

Is there anything you, as an athlete can do to improve your biomechanics and would that add efficiency and speed to your performance?

If the closest you have come to experiencing biomechanics is asking your local running shop for the correct shoe then this report will give you a wealth of knowledge on the varying levels of biomechanics and a solid foundation of training tips to build on over time.

In addition, the middle section of the report is equally fascinating for the clinician or technically hungry athlete/trainer.

It offers both scientific and practical information that are sure to give you long term benefits.
