Abstract
<jats:p> It remains to be determined whether running training influences the amplitude of lower limb muscle activations before and during the first half of stance and whether such changes are associated with joint stiffness regulation and usage of stored energy from tendons. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate neuromuscular and movement adaptations before and during landing in response to running training across a range of speeds. Two groups of high mileage (HM; &gt;45 km/wk, n = 13) and low mileage (LM; &lt;15 km/wk, n = 13) runners ran at four speeds (2.5–5.5 m/s) while lower limb mechanics and electromyography of the thigh muscles were collect...
