April 2010 IDEA Fitness Journal Test 2: Research: Barefoot Running and Static Posture Damage

Be the first to review

Type: Online Course

Item: CIFJ04102

Description

In this course, discover how the interest in barefoot running has soared, and how this exciting new training dimension might be something to consider for certain clients. Learn how barefoot running is less fatiguing than running in shoes, increases sensory input, and can protect you from injury. Then, switch gears and review how static posture, the three “S”s—sitting, standing and sleeping—can affect both the musculoskeletal and myofasical systems of the body, which could lead to prolonged static-posture damage.
