As for the 10 irregular ones (inconsistent between forefoot and rearfoot), it happens relatively often to see that in runners who are not used to barefoot running (less impact moderating behaviors secondary to their habits of shod running), although foot strike tends to normalize towards midfoot of forefoot after substantial exposure. Maybe these people need additional cues (e.g. Run with less noise) to decrease the vertical loading rate?]]> <![CDATA[Featured Article : 2014-Cheung-Landing pattern and vertical loading rates during first attempt of barefoot running in habitual shod runners]]> /en/news-research/featured-article.php Mon, 07 Jul 2014 19:08:49 -0400 <![CDATA[Featured Article : 2014-Fleming-Repeated familiarisation with hypohydration attenuates the performance decrement caused by hypohydration during treadmill running]]> /en/news-research/featured-article.php Mon, 07 Jul 2014 19:07:03 -0400 Opinion: Please not that hypohydration was characterized by absolutely no water intake during the experiment.
