  • Hey wassup guys, Devin Trent here founder of FeelGoodFitness and today's topic is Running

  • Form. In this video im going to show you why I suggest a midfoot strike when running opposed

  • to heelstriking and a simple that you can do to ensure a proper midfoot strike when

  • running. So, stay tuned!

  • Running is just a faster form of walking right? We'll not necessarily. One important thing

  • to remember is that running is very similar to a jump or more simply put just having both

  • feet in the air at the same time.

  • But when walking, that's not the case. One foot is in the air while the other foot is

  • on the ground.

  • Notice how you naturally walk with your heels touching the ground first

  • and also notice how you naturally jump with the middle of your feet touching the ground

  • first.

  • And this is why I recommend a midfoot landing when running

  • Because both feet are in the air at the same time you want to land on the middle of your

  • feet instead of landing on your heels.

  • Landing on your heels when running, is like landing on your heels when jumping.

  • Go ahead, try it!

  • Try jumping in place, and instead of landing on the middle of your feet as you would naturally

  • do:

  • Try landing on your heels.

  • Im sure you felt an uncomfortable shock run through your body.

  • I know I did!

  • And that's what happens when running with a heelstrike.

  • When you land on your heels like this, it causes a shock that runs from your shin, up

  • through your knees, and up to your hips. Which over time will cause pain and discomfort

  • Believe me I know from experience. I used to have a pretty bad heelstrike!

  • And that's why i recommend a midfoot landing when running.

  • It allows you to run with your feet under your center of gravity

  • Prevent injury and just have a better overall running experience

  • in general Now for the drill!

  • A simple drill you can do is midfoot hops! This will allow you to get use to landing

  • midfoot by creating neuromuscular pathways.

  • You simple hop in place on the balls of your feet!

  • Then you start to hop one foot at a time!

  • Then gradually move forward and go into a run!

  • One last thing, be careful not to land on your tippy toes. Its ok for your heels to

  • briefly touch the ground after landing on the middle of your foot.

  • So their you have it! My comparison of why a recommend a midfoot strike over heelstriking

  • and a simple drill you can do to ensure a proper midfoot strike when running.
