Last week, we looked at Tips 1 through 7 to improve your running, the undisputed King of cardio. We ended with wearing the right shoes. This week, let’s focus on Tips 8 through 15.

8. Arms: Try not to clench your fists. If you run with your fists up by your chest, considering lowering them so your fingers graze your waistline instead. This will save energy over the course of your run. Resist swinging your arms side to side. Think about gently punching your elbows straight back behind you as you stride forward.

9. Posture: Remember to draw your shoulders down and keep your ribs down so your back stays neutral. Keep those elbows punching back and don’t slam your feet. Imagine there’s a string tied to your sternum that pulls you forward as you run. In this position, you’ll avoid rounding your shoulders and hunching over, which makes it much harder to breathe properly and puts extra stress on the neck.
