El objetivo del presente estudio es comprobar las diferencias en los patrones de activación muscular de la extremidad inferior entre las distintas modalidades de carrera (velocidad, medio fondo y fondo) al aire libre, observando determinados parámetros de activación muscular y espacio-temporales en las fases de contacto inicial y despegue. Se obtuvo como resultados diferencias significativas en la actividad muscular del Bíceps Femoral, en la fase de contacto inicial entre mediofondistas y fondistas (p=0,02), y en determinadas variables espaciotemporales. Los resultados muestran la existencia de diferencias en los patrones de activación muscular de la extremidad inferior y en ciertos parámetros espaciotemporales durante la carrera al aire libre.
