Research found that there’s no way a heel strike runner can run with less impact, even if they implement low-impact mechanics, like a higher cadence as compared with forefoot running.
One of the many ways forefoot running prevents injury is by naturally increasing cadence which was found to reduce damaging contact forces and peak ground reaction forces on the leg.
How a higher running cadence is better for the knees and hips and improves performance, too, as compared to a lower running cadence.
High cadence speed during running is good for us because it reduces injury and makes you more efficient. Find out how to effortlessly boost your cadence.
Outlining the main mechanical components of forefoot running that dramatically lowers impact as compared with rearfoot running.
As runners, we all want to get faster, so we all want to know the techniques to run faster. However, there is only one thing you need to remember, that is…
Increasing cadence for running is a simple, yet effective strategy to minimize your risk of injury. It also makes you more energy efficient…
Knee running injuries are becoming way too common these days. Research shows that a strikingly large percentage of knee impact injuries are in heel strike runners, particular those who jog too slow.
