Accelerating running steady state running and decelerating running are clearly different movement patterns. This study investigated the relative joint contributions to overall positive work done (kinetic energy generated) and negative work done (kinetic energy absorbed). Overall there was more positive work done in acceleration compared with steady state running (as you might expect). Curiously this was mainly driven by greater positive hip work done while ankle positive work done was…

Has there been anything in the fitness industry more hotly debated in the past 5-10 years than steady state Cardio?
