Keys to natural and efficient running.
A correct running form helps you to run faster and with minimum stress on your body.
Proper Breathing While Running
Take slow, controlled, deep breaths with your belly, not with your chest. Inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth.
Arm swinging while running
Keep your elbows bent to a 90 degree angle and swing your arms to favor forward propulsion. Keep your hands relaxed.
Optimal running cadence
Short and quick steps, 180 footstrikes per minute, stride low to the ground.
Head position in running
Keep your head straight, look ahead, do not stare at your feet.
How to land your feet when running
Your foot should land below your centre of gravity, landing softly on the ball of the foot
Correct Running Posture
Lean your body forwards slightly so that your centre of gravity is above or in front your hips.
Shoulders position in running
Your shoulders should be back and down, relaxed.
What to think about when running
Concentrate on your running form, be present in the moment.
