Effective Running Techniques Boost Performance


 
Sports
Younger people hardly need any technique at all when they run marathons. All they need to do is just warm up and run. However, motion analysis proves that for those who are "running-challenged", they need to find the most effective yet has the lowest impact technique there is. Luckily, there is an energizing running technique that can aid people to run faster without injuring themselves. This technique has 2 advantages. First, it allows runners to increase their speeds and still have improved endurance. Lastly, it limits stress on the joints that decreases chances of acquiring an injury, especially to those people who have less synovial fluids.

When watching horse races, it is noticeable to see the jockey hoisted up on his knees and not sitting on the horse per se. It was found that through motion analysis, this position allows him to use his knees and quad muscles to decrease inertial losses. Inertial loss is a phenomenon that occurs when an object bounces. Such is the case when a ball bounces off a surface, the next bounce is lower than the previous one because part of the energy used is converted to heat energy. Likewise, if the jockey keeps himself hoisted "afloat" over the surface, the horse will need to produce less energy.

This can also be observed at the gym using motion analysis. When someone is pounding on the treadmill, he or she is using more energy than necessary as she bounces instead of propelling herself forward. Because of this technique, more people will be able to run despite their physical constraints. This running technique has 3 elements. The first is the floating head. Just like a jockey, the head should be floating at an unchanging level like as if a tea cup full of hot water is on the runner's head. It is also important to land each stride with the balls of the feet instead of the heel.

The next element is called the Claw and Kick. Since running speed is reliant on a runner's stride length, increasing this will allow them to run faster without their legs taking too much beating. The flexibility of the hamstring is necessary for the kind of extension this form requires so it is advisable for runners to follow a daily stretching routine.

Finally, the third element is the Torsional Spring. The abdomen and oblique muscles of the torso can help runners increase their speeds by allowing their hips to rotate, while their shoulders remain motionless. This makes the stride longer and puts more muscle power into the stride through the use of the abdominal muscles. Through motion analysis, we are able to understand a technique that will allow more people to enjoy an active lifestyle.
