At Fit Clinic we have three types of runners come in for running and gait retraining…
1. Runners wanting to improve technique,
2. People learning to run, or,
3. Runners with some form of injury aiming to overcome it.
We then provide corrective exercises for the specific problem, focusing on improved movement patterns. One common solution is focusing on cueing the runner to achieve an,
A. Upright shin position on impact,
B. A midfoot strike,
….which takes advantage of the bodies natural spring mechanism in the foot, and allows better hip drive forward improving efficiency of movement.
Take a look at the video and watch the shin on impact and the area of foot strike…..
Note: A little bit of work on the arm swing and hip drive required.
