Hands When Running


Written by Runnergirl Training



Runners tend to hold tension in their upper body as they became fatigued when training or racing. This tension drains energy from being efficiently used.

A simple way to keep the upper body loose is to have the hands relaxed, with thumbs touching the fingers, as if you were holding a cylinder in your hand. 


This will keep the hands from becoming clenched into fists and causing over tense muscle in the arms, neck, & shoulders.
