WHAT’S DROP?

Drop measures the up and down movement of your pelvis, which is most easily observed from in front or behind the body.

Why is it important?

Increased drop of the pelvis is often due to weak hip and core muscles, specifically your abductor muscles such as your gluteus medius. This can lead to undesired twisting of soft tissues such as the IT band and pulling on the patellar tendon. A stable, steady pelvis gives you a strong platform from which to launch your steps from, whereas an unstable pelvis can waste energy making you inefficient.

TARGET GOAL

12degs
or lower

Ideally your drop value will be as low as possible to reduce the lost of energy and risk of injury. A realistic value drop value is considered to be any number below 12 degrees.
