The Effects of Gait Retraining on Oxygen Consumption and Carbohydrate Metabolism
The purpose of this study was to determine whether gait retraining by modifying foot strike patterns from rear foot strike (RFS) to forefoot strike (FFS) increased running economy and heart rate immediately post-retraining and one month post-retraining.
