Visual feedback on ground contact time helps improve performance in runners

By Jordana Bieze Foster Visual-augmented feedback-based training focused on reducing ground contact time is associated with improved performance in trained distance runners, according to a Swiss study. Researchers from the Swiss Federal Institute of Sport Magglingen analyzed 30 trained male distance runners, each assigned to one of three four-week training conditions. An intervention group received visual augmented feedback as well as instructions, both focused on reducing ground contact time, during eight high-intensity training sessions
