Do you experience cramps in your shoulders when you run?
The solution to your problem is 4 simple steps away:
Step 1: Unclench those fists!
Avoid running with tight fists. Let your hands relax.
Pro-Tip: Imagine running with a potato chip between your fingertips. Don’t break that dorito!
Step 2: Keep your shoulder blades back and down.
Your neck isn’t going to help you run faster.
Keep your shoulder blades back, down and out of your ears.
Step 3: Arms should be 90/90, Cheek to Cheek
Both arms should always be flexed at 90 degrees at the elbow.
Your thumbs should track from the cheek on your face to the cheek on … not your face.
Step 4: Foam roll before and after your run.
Grab a “peanut” (two tennis or lacrosse balls taped together) and roll out your thoracic spine and neck before and after your run.
