It's been a bad few days for the fan boys; I wonder if they will notice

    I have posted three blog posts (and probably a fourth later today) that do not auger well for the claims made by the fan boys:

    1. Muscle Activity in Barefoot vs Shod Running (also posted in this thread) that showed that different muscles generate different forces in barefoot and shod running.

    2. Foot Strike Pattern and Injury Rates (also posted in this thread) that showed no injury or performance differences between heel striking and midfoot/forefoot running

    3. Comparison of running injuries between shod and barefoot runners (also posted in this thread) that showed no difference in injury rates between barefoot and shod running

    4. This study that concluded "This study shows that there is no mechanical and physiological benefit when running wearing minimalist shoes as opposed to traditional shoes and warrants a cautious approach to transitioning to minimalist shoe use." ... I will blog about that one later. It was posted in this thread.

    This reminds me of that period in mid to late 2013 that study after study was contradicting the rhetoric and propaganda from the fan boys. That also coincided with the decline in interest and sales figures of what the fan boys were promoting.

    I wonder if they notice?
