This article compares running surfaces (such as trail running, street/road running, astroturf, grass, etc.) and examines the types of proper footwear to improve running performance. This street running vs trail running article also discusses some of important musculature of the foot, and examines the kinds of injuries you can get from trail running and street running
How Good is your Running Pattern and Biomechanics?
When it comes to burning calories and improving muscle tone, running is better than walking. Running creates a superior metabolic effect burns more calories per hour and per mile. Running versus walking is more effective at building strength and generating EPOC (Exercise Post Oxygen Consumption).
But running safely requires careful attention to your biomechanics and running pattern. Is your form robust enough to run safely?
Join us as we examine some of the common running patterns that can result in injury.
