Dear All,

Hope everyone is well. I would like to ask anyone which has got any information
on how COM affects running economy in human to let me know please. I 've found
a really useful paper of Myers and Steudel (1985) in the effect of limb mass
and its distribution on the energetic cost of running but and i fully
understand how different position of added mass on human limbs affect running
economy but i would like to know if anyone has any more information around
this.

Thanks in advance
