I recently made the switch to Chuck's. Best decision I've made in awhile. Are your shoes split-sole or a one-piece?M.Ed. Ex Phys

I deadlift in socks or suit slippers. If I am requited to wear some sort of shoe it is a high top chucks unlaced almost all hte way down. If I'm pulling sumo the laces are done.
Squating chucks high tops laced up tight if squatting PL wide. Narrow stance New Balance cross trainers.
I will say since I train at home now unless the garage is to cold I do everything barefoot no socks.

vibram 5 fingers KSO trek shoes are nice as well if you like going barefoot + a little added comfort on ur feet..
also doing daily things barefoot increases proper posture + returns your feets arches

For wide stance SQ and DL I like chuck taylor's. For raw squatting with a narrower stance, I use an olympic weightlifting shoe with a small heel.

i believe over a consistent time period of proper posture the body will adapt to withstand the stress
just throwing this out there, has anyone heard of prolotherapy?

Also, prolotherapy pertains to connective tissue and not to actual muscle tissue. The foot and ankle complex is very, very unique in terms of how much one minor difference can change the dynamic of a person's gait.

Will someone give me some actual citation as to how barefoot training is good for you?

here are mine though:
When I was powerlifting I wanted to limit range of motion as much as I could a CM makes a difference hence pulling barefoot. I also found my body pulled better in the position.
Why do I train kung fu barefoot. When I am first learning new things I can grip the ground better so to speak barefoot. When things are getting down to a better feel I switch over and train some in shoes to fit training for life. Also if I was ever to do a wushu match you are in barefoot.

I had vibrams and am extremely flat footed. They were a b!tch. Returned them. I stick to my wrestling shoes.
11-17-2010, 05:28 PM
my feet have no arch whatsoever. I also have never considered shoe choice as something that would hamper my strength or my form. I guess I'll try lifting in some chucks.

yu dont need scientific evidence to understand that if you have good feet you can train barefoot and have comfort+preformance.. its merely common sense positive comfort > science
for the flat feet you can reshape by orthestotics (typo) or things such as golf ball rolling or yoga.. the body will right itself given time and consistency
