Barefoot Running 101
Poor technique is the underlying cause of injuries. Learn to run without the «help» of external factors to give your body a chance to thrive.
Stiff, cushioned, and supportive shoes are a big reason people can run with poor technique.
If you like 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 based on my 13 years of barefoot running experience to explore this precious locomotion activity.
Humans are made for running.
No question about it, but we don't need shoes for it, or at least not always.
Barefoot running is suitable 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. I am a father and a family man, a writer, a drummer, a professional bodyworker, and a movement teacher. I have an obsession with movement and high performance of any kind.
I've assisted and taught other professionals such as chiropractors, physiotherapists, massage therapists, personal trainers, and others nationally and internationally.
I have worked with clients for thousands of hours over 19 years, from the layman to the world champion and Olympic level. I have participated in sports such as cross-country skiing, speed skating, athletics, Tae Kwon Do, and scuba diving. I believe in self-education and simplicity and that anyone can improve their life.
Running isn't for everybody, but everybody should have a body capable of running!
Shoes are beneficial at times.
Our feet are designed to handle the weight and adapt to various surfaces independently, without any external support.
The sole of your feet has 200.000 accessible nerve endings, 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 someone developed the modern running shoe in the seventies. Which do you trust more?
