Biomechanics of Incline Training
Walking or running on the Incline Trainer forces the participant to use proper biomechanics (e.g. correct foot strike), therefore it forces the body to move more efficiently, reducing wasted energy and lessening chance of injury. The opportunity to walk or run at a decline allows for specificity of training in a controlled environment, which is ideal for the elderly as well as femail athletes. Decline training teaches the muscles to decelerate, greatly reducing chance of injury when faced with a difficult, uncontrolled environment. In this episode of FreeMotion TV we look at the biomechanics of Incline Training.
