Biomechanical Analysis of a Right-Footed Soccer Kick. - The talocrural joint is plantar flexed (~30-50 degrees) by the gastrocnemius and the soleus in the sagittal plane about a mediolateral axis. - The acetabulofemoral joint is flexed (~0-10 degrees) in the sagittal plane about a mediolateral axis. It is internally rotated (~5-15 degrees) in the transverse plane about a longitudinal axis.

Success of an instep soccer kick depends on various factors including the distance of the kick from the goal, the type of kick used, the air resistance and the technique of the main kick which is best described using biomechanical analysis. Previous reviews have examined biomechanics of soccer movements in-detail (Lees, 1996; Lees and Nolan, 1998). However, it becomes apparent that more research studies into biomechanics of soccer kick have been published within the last decade.
The biomechanics of kicking in soccer. This article discusses the basics of kicking skill from development stages through mechanical characteristics of upper level players. Specific areas that are addressed include developmental levels, kicking components, approach angle, forces on the support foot, loading of the swing limb and subseque ….
The two main kicks used in soccer, the push pass and the instep kick. The push-pass is used for passing along the ground for control. The instep kick is utilised as an effort to make the ball travel longer distances in flight (McAvoy, 1998). This Blog will focus on the biomechanics of the instep kick and influencing environmental constraints to consider. Breaking down instep kick in soccer kick. The Approach
Sports science research includes a focus on the most basic kicking techniques, the side-foot kick. In addition to a discussion on recent literature of the biomechanics of this motion, a comparative kinematic study evaluated determinants of an accurate side-foot kick based on subject kicking foot velocity and the subsequent ball velocity.
Essentially, in the follow-through phase, your upper body turns towards your striking leg as your striking leg moves forward and up towards your upper body. This article serves as information on biomechanics as well as instruction for how to kick a soccer ball.

considered mainly the kicking leg, and the kinematic, kinetic, and electromyographic characteristics of its segments, joints, and muscles. While much is known about the biomechanics of the kicking leg, there are a number of other aspects that have been the subject of recent exploration. Researchers have widened their interest to consider the characteristics of overall
To perform the kick, a great amount of force is applied on the muscles responsible for the movement. Therefore, a certain amount of energy must be supplied from the body in order to establish this motion. This analysis will seek to determine how much energy the body needs to provide per kick.
