Run Form Drill to Find Midfoot


Want to transition to a clean midfoot strike? Give this drill a try.

The drill is simple to do and can be worked into any warm-up, cool-down, or even practiced around the house.

Why midfoot?
Well, it’s actually about finding a vertical shin on landing — the midfoot follows.

A midfoot strike provides two main benefits:

  1. Reduces strain to your knees by allowing your body to naturally absorb shock
  2. Run faster by minimizing braking forces that cause runners to stop and start on every step

Give this a drill a try, and feel the difference for yourself.
