Is this video on running technique correct?

Asked by LDRSHIP (1191 points ) November 30th, 2013

NOTE: Watch video first – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSIDRHUWlVo&list=PL9C339C13ECE891FC

I’ve been able to change my running form and so far (knock on wood) my shin splits are gone the only reason I even looked into it was because of that.

Honestly have had hardly any other pains besides muscle soreness and the like.

I stumbled onto this video and yes if you are wondering I did read Born to Run.

Looking for feedback on whether or not what is being said and discussed in video is correct. Does it really work that way in terms of science or does it just sound good to explain that way?

That was the most informative video on running I’ve ever seen! I’d say it’s legit.

@DWW25921 I’d agree, just wondering someone who know about I guess physics or related sciences could put a stamp of approval on it that yes this is indeed how it works.

In terms of anatomy and physiology the video is correct. I am not a runner myself though, so I cannot tell if these techniques are part of/applicable in runnig training. If I was to guess, I would say yes they are. I see no scientific reason against these techniques. Of course, an athitiatrist or a professional runner would be able to provide more insight.

The runner has good form but is over-striding slightly.
