Today we have Dr Kevin Maggs of Running Reform on The Fat Black podcast. Kevin has studied Kinesiology and Chiropractic and was brought on by Rev3 triathlon to be their ART (Active Release Technique director). Kevin created one of/if not the best video education on prescribing running shoes (link below) and started Running Reform after continually hearing the same thing over and over from both pro and age group athletes. Their pain goes away with rest but always comes back with re-introduction of training and this will always be the case when biomechanics aren’t addressed. Today we address that topic and many others.

In today’s episode, we discuss:

  • What is the right shoe for you?
  • What is relevant when choosing shoes.
  • The factors that go into injuries.
  • What can influence your technique.
  • Gait re-education.
  • The 3 aspects of biomechanics.
  • How to change your cadence.
  • Fatigue and biomechanics.
  • Questions you need to be asking your practitioner.
  • Respecting your injury.
  • The problem with orthotics.
  • Barefoot running.
