Warm Up

Warming up is very important to any type of workout. Whether it be lifting or running. You need to get the blood and nutrients flowing to the muscles to help them perform at their best. Do some quick sprints, or some drills. Just don't warm up to hard. Save your energy for the actual workout

Run To The Side

What run to the side means, is to run on soft ground, like the side of the road or a dirt trail. Instead of running on a concrete trail or the sidewalk. This will help for you to avoid getting shin splints, and reduce the possibility of runners knee.

Hands Free

This doesn't mean run without hands, cause that would be hard. It means to not run with your hands in a fist, or clenched. What you should do instead is run with them slightly open. Open as if you were holding something relatively small, like a phone.

In And Out

This simply means to breath in through your nose, and out through your mouth. If you breath in through your mouth, it takes more energy than if you inhale through your nose. Therefore wasting valuable energy.

Just follow these simple tips to help run properly and more efficiently, to get the most out of your workout.

There you go, how to run, the right way.

Dedication is Everything.
