What should the arm action be while running?

Answered By Mike Fleming

Question

What should the arm action be while I'm running?

Answer

The best way to keep your arm action is by swinging the arms side to side but do not cross the middle part of your body. Your arms should be side to side in a coordinated action. Your hands should be loose and relaxed. Bill Dellinger once told me to visualize holding a flower so you won't have the instinct to clench your hands. Clenching your hands is a waste of valuable energy and creates more stress on the body.
