Physics of Falling says (Most) Professional Athletes are Running Wrong

Pretty much what I learned at the CF Endurance seminar with Pose Running. This article describes how it’s more efficient to use gravity and think of running as a series of “falling” rather than jumping. Michael Johnson employs this technique shifting his center of gravity forward (even though it looks like he remains upright in this sprint). Click the link below for the article…
