While doing the arm-bent-at-elbow formation, I made the mentioned mistake of clenching my fists--not intentionally, but subconsciously. Then, my lower part of my arm started to hurt from elbow to my wrist. I figured out the issue and corrected, but I still have to consciously remember not to do that as for some reason, my body wants to default to a clenched fist. Report
The extended walk DOES have a period of suspension. The center of balance is not shifted forward. There is no real change in cadence either. For some of us with some respiratory problems this makes it so we can walk faster and with more normal breathing than we can run coughing and wheezing. Report
But I'm missing a big toe. That foot I know its not the proper way of walking. Did go thru PT, but it was hurting my knee. Thankfully I have shoes made out of a mold so they fit perfectly and in accordance to my style.

Never take walking for granted. I was in a bad accident years ago. Messed me up!! Walking I can do again. Every step is precious. Report
In mind we have a playmate store that runs regular good form walking classes holds 5k and videotapes your walks form to correct or improve the proper form Report
I walk with a stick; otherwise I find myself slowing down and zig-zagging without meaning to! Report
