Top 5 Videos On How to Use a Metronome for Running

Using a Metronome for Running can help many novice and elite runners develop and improve their running form by ensuring runners follow a pattern. Humans love following patterns or a set routine and using a metronome just makes running easier.

With a digital metronome, runners can track, improve and develop their cadence rate, which is the number of times your feet hit the ground a minute. The more times your feet hit the ground, the faster your cadence rate.

To put it into perspective, many of the best runners have a cadence rate of 90 per minute. This is where a running metronome can help runners achieve their objective.
