What’s better, a forefoot or a rearfoot stike?
This is a complicated question and one that I get asked quite frequently.  It’s a topic I have avoided writing about on this blog until now because it is impossible to tackle and do the debate justice with just one post.  Sometimes topics area easy to summarize with clear conclusive statements, such as “toning shoes are bad.”   Rearfoot vs. forefoot strike is a little more complex.
Gradually, overtime, with multiple posts, I hope that I will be able to answer many of these questions.  With today’s post, all I want to do address the prevalence of each strike type and the associated importance.
