How the three types of levers are used in trampolining
Vertical axis & transverse plane
Frontal axis & saggital plane
Sagittal axis & Frontal plane
As I mentioned, there are three axes of movement which are linked with the three planes of movement:
The three axes of rotation
How do changes in centre of mass affect performance?
Centre of Mass and Performance in Trampolining
When a rugby or NFL player is low they are in a position for better torque as the athlete and their centre of mass goes upwards on their opponent while tackling. This is because low moment-arm increases as position get's higher. This means the distance between the opponents pivot point and location of force increases which allows for higher torque on opponent.
"The low man wins"
How different types of levers and changes in centre of mass combine to affect performance? (in relation to rugby and NFL)
