I was wondering if poor running forms works certain muscles and if good running form works other muscles?
I'm working on my form since I videoed myself last week. I'm naturally flatfooted but I really overstride, have no kick, swing my arms from my elbows, am too upright- basically I run backwards in a race...
By changing my form (gradually etc) will I find that I'm using different muscles/muscle groups more than I presently do? I feel I overuse my quads at the moment and have really puny calves. Will these have inverted prescidence with correct form? Just curious as I couldn't find an answer elsewhere online.
Yes, I think you'll find a difference.
Why do you think you are too upright, in what sense ?
