Hi Tracy,Thank you for the question. My exneriepce is that we all have weak links, especially if we have worn structurally supportive running shoes for much of our lives. Even a conditioned runner will have some kinks when they make the transition to barefoot/minimalist. The calves hurt due to the change in landing pattern from heel strike to forefoot strike. With a forefoot strike, the calves are engaged way more than with heel strike. Each mile of running with a forefoot strike is the equivalent of doing 1000-1500 calf raises per mile. Of course the calves are gonna be screaming.There will be weak links in the hips. I begin with foot, ankle, hip, and shoulder mobility work to increase functional range of motion. Most people are stuck in these areas. I follow mobility work with stability work, basic postural core work. This would be a good place to add in posterior chain work. I find the posterior chain is the weakest link. Most people are anterior chain dominant so they don't need as much strength training in the quad as they do for the glutes and scapula. Everything begins with light weight and higher reps, but once the body becomes more functionally conditioned, all levels of intensity need to be challenged. Jesse James Retherford
