5 Running Form DOs and DON’Ts from Dr. Daniel Lieberman
Posted on August 06 2012
Came across a tweet this morning from my buddy Tuck of the Yelling Stop blog. His link was to a nice video from Dr. Daniel Lieberman discussing 5 DOs and DON’Ts of running form. I agree with almost all of them, particularly points 1 and 5. As far as footstrike goes, I tend to view a little bit to either side of the midfoot to be fine as long as there is limited to no overstride (too much focus on foot strike can be problematic and often causes people to consciously exaggerate form in a potentially negative way).
Anyway, take a look at the video – what do you think?
