Run Fast, Smooth, and Silky With 3 Shoulder Moves!

May 12, 2014

Running is more than just your legs and lower body. Your whole body is active and involved whether you're doing a light warm up run or sprinting through a tough track workout. Loose and mobile shoulders help to keep your upper body nice and relaxed so you can maintain proper running form under any condition. Your shoulders also act as a driver that propels you forward. This forward momentum that is generated by your upper body puts less demand on your lower body saving it from premature fatigue and failure.

Our friend  and CrossFit coach Nate Helming from the The Run Experience has put together another great video showing 3 easy stretches you can do to help loosen up your shoulders to improve and enjoy your next run.

Nate Helming is one of the coaches that make up the All Star coaching staff at San Francisco CrossFit. With a background as an endurance athlete Nate has logged more miles than most of us would in 3 lifetimes. Through his strength and conditioning program Helming Athletics Nate has used CrossFit to help some of the best endurance athletes perform even better. He also recently launched The Run Experience as a way to share his knowledge and love for running with a broader audience.
