Abstract

Impulsive loading through jumping does not generate significantly higher peak tensile or compressive strains than those developed during running However, jumping creates shear strains that are 3-6x higher than compressive and tensile strains. Training programs that eliminate continuous high-impact activities are likely to result in decreased stress fracture incidence.
