Regulation of Gait in Long Jumping.
Lee, David N.; And Others
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, v8 n3 p448-59 Jun 1982
The way in which skilled long jumpers regulate their gait during their run-up to the takeoff board was investigated. The run-up consists of (1) an initial accelerative phase, and (2) a zeroing-in phase. Their skill varied with the adjustment of the impulse of their steps toward the end of the run-up. (Author/BW)
