How do you become a more efficient runner? There are many different angles to approach this question, but the topic of today’s video is an often overlooked one. We are focusing on ways to make our feet quicker during the load-to-push-off transition. The amount of time your foot is on the ground with each stride can vary from .1 – .3 seconds. That’s not a lot of time, but yet, the faster you can make it will translate to greater efficiency and decreased susceptibility to pain and injury.
Today’s video covers three exercises you can do to improve your efficiency by developing quickness. The first two exercises could be done briefly as part of your dynamic warm up, the third should only be done 1-2x/week. Have fun with these!
Please share with a friend and leave comments/feedback for me so I can continue to refine the videos and make them more helpful. Thanks!
