Better Running Form - Arm Motion

by Grandpa Roger

I have a 12 year old gramddaughter who is doing very well in cross country. She has broken 12 minutes in the 2 mile and wins all her races. My question has do to with her arm motion while running. She kind of swings her arms across her body instead of back and forth in a piston-like motion. It seems to me that she could do even better if she could incorporate better arm action. Any training suggestions (e.g. videos) that might help her to be more efficient?


Hello Grandpa Roger

The main thing is make sure her arms don't cross the middle of her body. She's young, so eventually she will improve her form with some work. Here's a video with some form tips. I suggest just standing in place where you swing your arms back and forth straight ahead. Then she should start running, while focusing on going forward and backward with her arms instead of sideways.

I can’t give an opinion about this because I have never been into cross country or any running competitions. However, I have heard some people saying that one should acquire better running skills from an athletic school which is easy to find in urban areas. pest control sprayers

running form NEW
by: Max

My suggestion is to let her run in the natural way. Otherwise it may effect her mentally and may not show that interest in running! Doing editing & writing services all of sudden may effect anyone mentally and physically.
