In the article Ryan posted it states

“The key function of the leg muscles during treadmill running is not to produce propulsive forces but to re-position the legs so as to keep the centre of mass stable.”

I also heard this claim in a similair thread on another running board.

This is not to be taken as necessarily an endorsement of the content of the article or its author – and certainly not unknown message posts on another, unknown message board – but if one reads “key” and interprets that to mean “only” then I can see why there would be an issue.
