    Re: Ground reaction forces and gait

    Roberto Carlos is a retired Brazilian footballer . He is 5 feet six tall but had just about the most powerful kick in the world in his day . In the video below you can see that a large proportion of the power comes from the run up , but look how high his standing leg lifts him into the air after contact . At ball contact and just after ,that's the bit to focus on . His legs were very powerful and so could rapidly , vertically accelerate the standing leg/pelvis putting power into the swing/kicking leg .
