LEARNING RACE WALKING TECHNIQUE - POSTURE

Posture sounds simple.  It is that your body should be straight up and down. Basically vertical. However, if you have a problem leaning forward or backward then correcting it isn't as easy as just saying straighten up. Sure you can straighten for a few moments, but as you progress you will fall back into your bad habit because the habit is usually caused from a muscle imbalance and lack of flexibility. You need to do exercises to correct this as well as focus. Race Walk Clinic in a Book outlines these for people that either lean forward or backward. These exercises were actually developed by a physical therapist, because tim and i are coaches first.
