Running Technique Video

This great video emphasizes so many of the points I make with my runners in avoiding injury. These include:
  1. Midfoot Landing instead of Heel Strike
  2. Improve Stride Rate over Stride Length (need of more hip flexibility emphasized)
  3. Minor Vertical Displacement or "Bounce" (wasted movement up and down)
  4. Vertical Posture with Slight Forward Lean
  5. Some Pronation when landing and never supination at this time (this is when shoe and orthotic selection can be very important). 
  6. Good Arm Swing 
  7. Strong Hip/Core



Good Luck to all the runners out there with a new year of running.
