It is important to hit each point individually. Often outward pointed toe walkers will combine Step Points 3 and 4 together. This will lead to very tight outside IT Bands, shin splints, and low back pain. Inward pointed toe walkers will skip Step Point 1, which will lead tight front hips.

It is important to hit Step Point 1 and 2 when your leg is in front of you. Step Point 3 and 4 occur when your leg is behind you.
