🏃♂️Should you focus on changing your cadence?
The answer is a big old "it depends".
🏃♂️Cadence is measured as how many steps you take in a given minute or SPM. This may be 120spm or 200spm or more than likely somewhere in between.
***I will say that if you are not experiencing pain or repeated injuries then I will rarely have someone alter their cadence. Again, it is simply a tool that we can use. ***
🏃♂️People who may benefit from altering their cadence:
-you have repeated stress fractures
-knee pain (runners knee)
-shin splints (MTSS)
-hip or low back pain
-have been told you overstride
🏃♂️These are some of the more common issues I tend to see where if someone has a lower cadence then they may benefit from increasing it over time.
If you are experiencing any of the above issues and would like any guidance please contact me
