Running Form Drill: Wall Running

When I do a running form analysis one of the most common issues that I see is people landing too far in front of their center of gravity. Doing that is not only inefficient, but it also increases impact forces on your legs.

 

You can help to work on getting your feet to land more underneath your hips with exercises like this wall running drill. It will help to create new movement patterns and help teach your body what it feels like to have your feet hit the ground under your center of gravity.

 

It’s a great pre-run exercise to get your mind thinking the right way before your run. Test it out and let me know what you think!
