Best 4 Ways to Optimise Your Running Posture!

Thursday, May 15, 2014
Hey RIF REVers,

Had a great morning yesterday helping out the “Hill’s Angels”, an inspiring  group of couch bounds, previously “the Great Unfit” who four weeks ago did NO running at all! This morning we did a walk run session for one hour, covering over 7K! Congrats to all involved. Four weeks to go till city to south guys! Welcome to the wonderful world of running! Addicted already!

Did a quick video on one of the most common running mistakes people at all levels make. Always important to use your posture and length and lean from the ankles. Most people we see think about length and then as they lean, instead of from the ankles they subtly lean from the hips. This changes mechanics using more energy as well as putting more force through hips, knees, feet, basically it makes you a heavier runner. So one key is to first know what you are tending to do from a technique perspective. Then look at strategy to optimise length so that it’s easier for you to keep upright and avoid shortening through the hips, particularly as your runs get longer and you start to fatigue.

In this video Will and I show you how to optimise length and postural strength for your running. Hope it helps guys. Had a few issues with sound for this one so reshot the intro. If it’s too soft, let us know and we will reshoot it.

Have a good week guys,

Talk soon,

Paul
