Anyone here supinate?
how exactly can you tell?
look at the bottom of your shoes, if the outter portion of the heel is worn out and the inner is not, you supinate.
have you experienced any difficulties wearing spikes ,beeing a supinator?
What’s a supinator anyways??
supination is when the foot rolls to the outside as opposed to pronation when the foot rolls to the inside.
Supination are also called under-pronation.
Also called wheel-legged :baddevil::
take it from me, women think bowlegged men walk sexy:D
i have not had any problems wearing spikes, nor am i bowlegged. i would have to say i have only a slight supination.
Some amount of supination is a normal part of the running stride. Typically, footplant will occur with the outside of the foot hitting first, then some supination will occur as the foot rolls over towards push off. Supination is only a problem if it is excessive because it can cause injuries.
If you feel like supination is a problem for you, doing foot strengthening exercises might help a bit…EMS works great here.
I have quit strong feet from running barefoot and rehab from shin-splints ,but i’m wondering if supinaton could cause problems when wearing spikes wich dont occur when running barefoot ?
The only probem i had with spikes were the m.js they split my skin right under my baby toe:mad:

The outside of the foot does hit first; the foot being in supernation, but then the foot roles inwards ie. pronates, until the ball of the foot hits and then push off begins.
… and excessive sup. can be caused by a long list of imbalances and can cause an equally long list of issues
Whoops, Richard is right, I was talking about over-pronation, not over-supination.
anybody whi is either excessive supinator or pronator, ends up with patellofemoral syndrome. I supinate and therefore am constantly addressing the lateralis vs. vmo issue. My lateral gets so strong, my vmo has no chance to keep my patella tracking properly.
you hit the nail on the head. i have found strengthening the glute med & VMO have helped, but i still have tracking problems. can anyone else elaborate…
patellofemoral syndrome…has a nasty ring to it…
I have always felt pain in my knees when squating. Come to think of it i have always felt squats the worst ,even exlusively ,on the inner tigh and had ,even as a kid, very well developed front thighs.
Deadlifting produces none of the pain tough.
