The whole concept behind the foot being behind and "flat" is that it is your step-off point. While all your weight is centered it is distributed between the front leg and anchored on that back leg. So, to answer your question, it should be your whole foot that connects with the floor. However, that's what works for me and that's what I was taught, others may beg to differ )

That which does not kill us can only make us stronger
