WHAT’S BOUNCE?

Bounce is the vertical movement of your body while you run. This is also known as vertical oscillation of your pelvis.

Why is it important?

Bounce is important to running efficiency because as you run, you want to exert as little energy as possible moving up and down, and as much energy as possible propelling yourself forward.

TARGET GOAL

5.0% of height.
or lower

While the ideal bounce is no bounce (i.e., 0 in.), having no bounce is nearly impossible for even the most elite runners. Bounce values under 5% of the runners height are considered good for most runners.
