What is a Forefoot Strike

What is a Forefoot Strike

To help you avoid heel strike during running, don’t lift your forefoot, instead either point your forefoot downward (as shown below) or keep it parallel with the ground (as shown above). Not that when you run barefoot, the toes, NOT the forefoot, reflexively slightly lifts up. This is so the toes get out of the way, helping set-up the foot to land ahead of the arch.
