In Part 2, MacKenzie identified a drill to help train you to move your legs more with your hamstrings than your hip flexors. In Part 3, he provides two more drills to reinforce the concept.
Standing with his back to a wall, Katona practices raising his leg into Pose posture without letting his foot hit the wall. Next Katona turns around and runs in place with his hands against the wall.
MacKenzie also targets the problem of vertical bouncing during Pose running.
“The more vertical oscillation we have, the more up and down we have, and we’re giving away to forward motion,” MacKenzie says. He demonstrates how to correct bouncing by using a tight midline, box jumps, running drills and an overhead cue.
