Trouble Walking

Hey I'm pretty tall, about 6'2" so I guess that could make it harder to walk. But I do not feel comfortable at all while walking. I'm not sure if my legs should be straightened out or bent a little, cause people have told me to do both. Also when walking do you put force on your heel, or on balls of feet? It seems like I can power walk outdoors fine but when I'm somewhere inside like the mall and it's crowded and tight, it becomes awkward for me. Please give me some tips on how to walk more comfortably

Re: Trouble Walking

Relax and forget about how you walk and most likely you will end up walking normal. The more you think about your walk the harder it will be to walk normal.

To answer your question, weight should be on heel and not on ball of foot. I walking we do both.
