UKA Coach Building A Better Coaching Environment


Frans Bosch Interview: Running Mechanics

Frans Bosch is a professor of biomechanics and motor learning at Fontys University for Applied Science in Holland. He is the co-author of “Running: Biomechanics and Exercise Physiology in Practice”, which is widely regarded as one of the top sprinting resources for coaches worldwide.

A painter and anatomical illustrator, Bosch has a unique approach sprinting biomechanics and training. He was the Netherlands national team jumps coach from 2003-2006 and also served on that country’s Olympic staff in 2000 and 2004.

In this podcast Frans discusses some of the key biomechanical principles that underpin human movement and provides examples of how they are applied in practice.

    Really interesting discussion.  It seems as though the more I delve into biomechanics and technique, the more complicated it becomes.  However, I appreciated the few species to look out for.  I think I will look again at Stefan Holm and Usain Bolt to see how they utilise these techniques.  I would be interested in a few key coaching terms to apply to sprints and hurdle take off.  What could we use as key cues to athletes to begin to develop the techniques suggested?
