A large study (N=97) recently conducted at Loughborough University gives us the best insights we have so far in what aspects of running form and technique actually matter in terms of bringing about improved running economy, and improved performance. 
 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:
-39% of running economy variance can be explained with just 3 individual running form parameters. 
-31% of running performance variance can be explained with just 4 individual running form parameters. 
-The impact on running performance and economy of braking, vertical oscillation, stride parameters (ground contact time, stride rate, stride length, etc), posture, and lower limb angles
