Schema of the horizontal shift of the center of mass (CM) and associated center of pressure (CP) (left part) and description of the M/L and A/P CP curves (right part). The dotted lines show the time-relationships between each component. Note that the M/L thrust (T1-Peak) coincides with the first backward CP shift, and that during the unloading component of the M/L CP shift, the second backward shift occurs, which corresponds to heel off (T2).
