Synopsis

Barefoot running has garnered lots of attention due to the mega-bestseller Born to Run while products like the Vibram® FiveFinger Shoes have tripled in sales and top athletic companies like Nike® and Adidas® are declaring barefoot running the next big thing. However, barefoot running involves more than simply taking off your shoes and hitting the track and Barefoot Running Step by Step teaches runners how to train their feet and body to run barefoot properly and in a way that will dramatically reduce injuries. Barefoot Running Step by Step separates the facts from the hype covering the latest research and running techniques behind this key trend. Written by noted barefoot runner and instructor Ken Bob Saxton and running journalist Roy Wallack this guide outlines proper techniques for running barefoot properly and incorporating the practice into their running regimen for a better stride, longer endurance, and fewer injuries. Barefoot Running Step by Step is the most comprehensive book on the hottest athletic trend.

Barefoot Running Step by Step: Barefoot Ken Bob, The Guru of Shoeless Running, Shares His Personal Technique For Running With More
Average rating
4 / 5
A good book to start
December 31st, 2013
The book shares great tips on barefoot running but incorporated too many people's successful experience... making it feel like the author is trying to hard sell his version of barefoot is superior than all others minimal shoes including Vibram, Pose Running and Chi Running. It is hard to believe barefoot does not require stronger calf or leg muscles for a start which what others would caution.
