The purpose of the reading is to provide the basic concepts on the determinants of our energy of human locomotion on earth, on measurement methods and on its main applications.
Concept and definition of the energy cost of human locomotion
Energy cost, speed and metabolic power
Determinants of the energy cost of human locomotion on land
Exercise prescription and energy cost of human locomotion
Applications (clinical application, sport)
The cost of energy at submaximal speed and supramaximal
