Effects of different wearable resistance placements on sprint-running performance: A review and practical applications
Strength and Conditioning Journal
School of Medical and Health Sciences
Wearable resistance (WR) provides the practitioner with the means to overload sprint running in a sprint-specific manner. This article investigates the effects of WR on sprint-running performance by discussing the mechanisms associated with WR, as well as those factors that must be taken into consideration by the practitioner when implementing a program that uses WR. In particular, the effects of different WR body placements (trunk, legs, and arms) will be discussed. Practical applications and conclusions from the analysis will be provided.
