Learn How To Run
Running is a skill.
Most people are never taught how to run correctly. Running is a skill that must be learned in order run efficiently and injury free. With 200,000 nerve endings, 33 major muscles, 28 bones, 19 ligaments; the human foot is a biomechanical masterpiece.
In the last 40 years we have been led by a common misconception that cushioned, padded sneakers are better. Despite all the developments in sport shoe technology, and estimated 79 percent of people give up running because of injury - a movement that should come naturally.
Unless you were brought up in an unshod, chair-free environment, you are likely to be lacking in certain physiological qualities and biomotor skills for running.
Watch the video to learn the skill of running as coached by Lee Saxby:
Lee Saxby is at the forefront of applied barefoot science. He has spent 20 years studying with the leading researchers across the fields of biomechanics, nutrition, athletic training, evolutionary biology and functional medicine and more laterally spent 10 years coaching barefoot running techniques to help runners increase performance and overcome injuries.
The coaching drills he uses are based on a deep understanding of the scientific principles of the biomechanics of movement and evolutionary biology, and his extensive practical experience of fixing injured runners and developing performance athletes.
He is considered by many as one of the best in his field, and has been described as “The World’s Best Running Coach” by Christopher McDougall, author of the international bestseller, Born to Run, and by Harvard Professor, Daniel Lieberman as “Exceptional”.
