@Fdruid @otroguillo Running Science: Heelstrike v/s Forefootstrike:

I did research on fore and rearfoot strike running, there will be a publication soon. The aim of this study was to assess differences in muscle activity of the abdominus transversus muscle and multifidus during running in two different kinds of a running pattern - the rear foot strike running pattern and the forefoot strike running pattern. This study has demonstrated clearly that the activity of the abdominus transversus is more symmetric in the RFS running pattern than it is in a FFS running pattern. The results indicate that superior core stability is achieved in a RFS running pattern. The advantages of a RFS are: - A slightly diminished impact peak at midstance compared with a FFS running pattern. This might be essential because the greatest potential for injuries during running is also at 60 % of the stance phase. In this mid to late stance maximal calcaneal loading o...
