Run Your Potential® Coach John Loftus working with Shane, a high school XC and track runner on his form. This was video taken during 200m @210 steps per minute. After an extensive form session where we worked on mid-foot landing, bent knee, arm swing, forward lean, etc we ran a series of 200's to work on optimal cadence, hip extension and smoothness. Noted that I have a little more forward lean than Shane's and get a little more thigh separation (the angle between the thighs during the flight phase) by raising my knee higher. Plus a little more hip extension to push out the back. Shane is extending his foot out front a little more and keeping the toe a little higher. But overall very good progress for our first session together.
Short steep 10 second hill sprint for improving form and strength. By running close to 100% effort extraneous movement is minimized and powerful rapid firing of muscle is encouraged to make your running stride more dynamic and efficient. In this clip, Coach John Loftus demonstrates his technique for these short hill sprints.
