Running Technique - Five Fingers
151_runnerstechnique
Description

This class will cover the basics in proper running technique, specifically applied to running in minimalist running shoes. Ideally wear your Vibram Five Fingers, Bikila model and running clothing.


Proper form will be discussed in terms of foot landing, leg motion, arm swing, hip pivot, breathing, and cross training. We will walk, jog then run, as well as doing some cross training and stretching at the end.


Other things to be discussed are the transition into running, how to get stronger without injury, sprinting vs cruising, breathing and more.


If you are wondering if running in FiveFingers / Minimalist Shoes is right for you, the answer is yes. http://www.nature.com/nature/videoarchive/barefootprofessor/index.html

Hi, I like things. Some things that I like a lot are bicycles, paddle boards, fivefingers, anything that runs on electricity, design, philosophy, writing and meeting awesome people. Have a great day.
