Discussing the health benefits of barefoot adaptations and how they transcend as good forefoot running mechanics.
I am happy to announce that barefoot running helps older runners get off to a more lightening-fast start with better foot health
The sensory nerves of the feet send information to the brain about foot position and balance in order to improve movement smoothness, foot strike intensity and dynamic stability especially at the knee
Your running biomechanics is different when running barefoot than it is in cushioned running shoes. It’s actually very interesting how little cushioned, motion control stability running shoes does for your running form.

The answer will surprise you as science is beginning to say that earthing is key in the clearance of free-radicals from the body and may improve the body’s ability to defend against a variety of health problems that range from disturbed sleep to chronic inflammation.

The best weapon against injury when doing speed training.
