Running shoes are for running, not for working out, lifting weights, or swinging kettlebells!
Area of risk: Running shoes raise the heel and can push the knee forward during squats or KB swings which could possibly contribute to knee injury. Running shoes are like having marshmallows on your heels so when you squat, dead lift or do anything ground based, your ankle will role in or out to an exaggerated degree causing shearing forces in the lower body. This can cause ankle, knee, hip and back pain!
How to avoid: SIMPLE SOLUTION! Train in flat soled shoes or even go barefoot—you'll be more stable and actually feel the ground with your feet.
Proper foot wear examples: Chuck Taylor's ($30-$50), NB Minimus ($85-100), Vibram 5 Fingers ($100-$110), etc.
- You wouldn't wear soccer cleats on the basketball court would you?
- You wouldn't wear high heels on the treadmill would you?
- You wouldn't wear your heavy winter coat to the beach in mid July would you?
SO WHY ARE YOU WEARING RUNNING SHOES TO WORKOUT??????????
