    Hope this helps.

    Principles of biomechanics that apply to running include the principle that force must be applied to change the velocity of an object in motion. An example of this is of the runner in the midflight stage losing velocity while airborne during each stride. To maintain continual motion, force must be applied at the toe off of the stride. The Law of Acceleration is seen by a runner improving strength and muscle fibers through pylometric training so that the toe off can be more ...
