Midfoot strike or rearfoot strike during running?

    Hi there,

    I have seen a lot of guys land on their heel first when running.

    From my understanding this indicates over-striding or even act as a braking system, so should a heel-striker change to being a midfoot-striker?

    Which striking patterns make running more efficient and cause less injuries?

    I have been reading some contradicted evidence and would like some clarification.

    any input is appreciated.
