Phase I – Shuffle Step Drill

This drill is a fantastic way to feel your midfoot. It will be awkward at first, but with practice, your body will learn to love your new movement! Perform for 20-30 feet and repeat five times, and try integrating this drill into your movements throughout your day. Although you may feel like you’re landing on the ball of your foot, the key here is to stick the bent knee landing. Landing on a bent knee will ensure that you minimize ground reaction forces, which in turn decreases the load through your knee and forces attempting to slow you down.
