Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine any biomechanical differences between a forward and backward drop landing. Overall this study reported that landing in one direction was not inherently safer than the other direction. Gymnasts utilised different strategies dependent on the landing direction which may have strength and conditioning implications.
