Week 3 | Day 16
By this point, you are probably feeling some little aches and pains. This is ok! This is the beauty of being active and moving our bodies like they are made to move. We become more in touch with how we should feel and we make improvements based on our weaknesses.
Today we are focusing on how to control upper body rotation.
As runners, our upper and lower body naturally rotate, flex, and extend with each step. Do you ever come back from your run and notice scuff marks on your calves? This means that you are rotating too much while running. It’s time to resolve this common problem and focus on finding the sweet spot of just enough rotation!
This drill shows how much you should be engaging your core to keep upper body rotation at a minimum.
