Summary:

• Walking has two basic poses: Contact, with both feet on the ground and Passing Position with one leg moving under torso.
• Both feet are on the ground about 20% of the time for the cycle of one stride.
• To walk faster we tend to increase both step length and cadence.
• For a desired walking speed the body finds the step length that minimizes the required energy consumption.
