What’s the best way to run? While often polarizing headlines read “everyone must land on their forefoot”, there is a lot more to efficient running form than a foot strike. In this webinar presentation, Jay Dicharry will use both scientific data and simple analogies to discuss what good running form is. Then, it’s on to the naked truth: There are things you can do outside of running that will improve your running economy.

By the end of this presentation, you will understand:
•What defines proper running form, and how it plays a role in injury and performance.
•How to ensure that you are putting the best ingredients (your body!) into your running form.
•The mobility requirements for proper running
•How to optimize your strength training to ensure it directly transfers into better running.
•How to optimize posture and effectively integrate it into your daily activities and training.

Join Jay as he looks past the hype and shares the information you need to perform at your peak.

Course was quite informational. However, the exam was quite a bit more difficult than anticipated based on others that I have taken.
