Barefoot Running 101
Stiff, cushioned and supportive shoes are a big reason why people can run with poor technique.
Poor technique is the underlying cause of injuries.
Learn to run without the «help» of external factors, and let your body support itself.
If you like the idea of running like a natural human being, connecting with nature, and living more in balance with yourself and your surroundings.
In that case, you should look no further as I have put together this course for you, which is based on my 13 years of experience with barefoot running for you to explore this precious locomotion activity.
Humans are designed to run.
No question about it, but actually, we don´t need shoes for it, or not always.
Barefoot running is good for your posture because your body naturally wants to adjust the landing from the heel to the fore/midfoot.
Who am I?
My name is Kai Kjartan Høgberg, from Norway.
I was trained as a Massage Therapist in 2003. I graduated in Anatomy Structural Integration in 2006, so helping people in pain and movement restrictions has been my career for almost two decades.
I´ve been assisting and teaching other professionals such as chiropractors, physiotherapists, massage therapists, Yoga teachers, personal trainers, and others, nationally and internationally, for several years.
I reside a strong passion for movement; applied in an exploratory, playful and creative way, he tries to inspire his clients and students to play with movement throughout the day, wherever they are.
I have been active in several sports, such as cross country skiing, speed skating, athletics, Tae Kwon Do, and scuba diving. I have been working with a wide variety of athletes, from novice and all the way up to world champion and Olympic level.
Running isn't for everybody, but everybody should have a body capable of running!
Shoes are beneficial at times.
Our feet are designed to deal with our weight and adapt to various surfaces independently, without any external support.
The sole of your feet has 200.000 free nerve endings in them, so it's important not to stop them from sensing and getting feedback from the ground.
Shoes restrict feedback, not impact.
Think about it for a second; your feet evolved over millions of years, while the modern running shoe was developed in the seventies. Which do you trust more?
