To have the most efficient foot strike we must pull from the ground every time we run. To understand this movement pattern you can practice with a jump rope. (I love the RX Smart Gear ropes)
Step 1: Begin by starting with single jumps
Step 2: Continue jumping with only leg pulling from the ground at a time
Step 3: Make sure your feet are pulling straight off the ground, through the inseam. You can think foot to beside the knee
Step 4: Kiss your heels with the ground every time
Step 5: After a few rotations, release the jump rope and continue this form, running out from the jump rope.
I'm passionate about running, fitness, nutrition and all things that make me and everyone else a better version of ourselves.
