The Perfect Way to Run?

November 09, 2011 By: John Blue Category: General Running News

People seem to either love or hate, or love to hate, Christopher McDougall, the author of Born to Run and fierce advocate of minimalist running.

He recently wrote an article for New York Times magazine about an interesting exercise, called “100 ups,” that he believes will help your running.

In the article, McDougall recognizes the important fact that people can, and do run barefoot and still have terrible form.

Here’s the video. I’d be interested to hear back from anyone who tries the exercises.

(To illustrate the love/hate for McDougall, you needn’t look farther than the comments on this article.)


UPDATE: Alex Hutchinson over at Sweat Science has a great back and forth with Christopher McDougall regarding this article. It’s definitely worth checking out. Here’s the first post and then a follow-up with McDougall’s response. (Thanks to Charlie for the tip!)
