Your Secret Running Weapon: Use Stairs for Better Technique
James Dunne, founder of Kinetic Revolution, is a running coach. He specialises in identifying and correcting dysfunctional movement patterns that impair efficiency in endurance athletes.
In this video, James explains how you can use stairs to hone your running technique. First, understand there are two key components to running:
- The Swing Phase - During a stride, you lift your back foot with an efficient toe-off and swing it forward. Using both hip flexion and knee flexion, you dorsiflex your foot and bring it under your torso.
- Cadence - This is how frequently you make strides. Aim for short, quick steps.
