Speed Tip: Proper “Armswing” is key to faster running.

  1. Swing the arms forward and backward, not across the body.
  2. Swing the arms from the shoulders.
  3. Keep the elbows bent at about 90 degrees and focus on driving them backward.
  4. The hands should pass the body at pocket height.
  5. Swing the arms powerfully through a full range of motion. Chin height to pass the butt.
  6. Keep the shoulders and hands relaxed. The shoulders should be down and the hands should be relaxed but firm. Do not clench your fist or flop the hands.
