What’s the proper running posture in terms of trunk and head position? Running too upright may produce a difficult mix of other mechanical inadequacies that may plague your running performance and set the stage for injury whereas forward leaning is not only an incredibly useful stress-reduction technique, it can also support well-sustained forward momentum and better running economy.
BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
