In training sports, running in place is a very effective exercise. Of course, it is good for a person to run in place regularly, such as improving heart function, strengthening muscle elasticity, etc., but running in place is also exquisite, but many People don’t know how to run in situ indoors. So, what is the correct posture for indoor running in situ? Let’s take a look together below!
Running on the spot indoors, correct posture
1. Head posture
Raise the head slightly, look straight ahead, relax the head and neck muscles.
2. Arm posture
Stretch your chest, tuck your abdomen, flex your elbows, lift your shoulders slightly, bend your arms to 90 degrees, and swing back and forth naturally. When you swing forward, your hands are slightly inward, and when you swing backward, your elbows are slightly outward. Don’t show your elbows, and keep your hands behind.
3. Leg posture
When swinging the lower limbs forward, lift the thighs forward and upward as much as possible, and keep the feet above the ground at least 20 cm. This can make the abdominal muscles tense, the inner belly is lifted, and the breathing is even, slender, full and rhythmic.
However, you should raise your legs moderately, and you can’t blindly pursue stride length and frequency. Increasing the stride length will inevitably result in a long flight time, a large fluctuation in the center of gravity, and a heavy landing force. This will increase the vibration to the human body and cause unnecessary damage over time.
4. Landing posture
The calf is relaxed and drooping naturally, the toes are lightly landed, the heel is lifted, the heel does not touch the ground, the rebound force is used to make the movement rhythmically. Many people are accustomed to landing with their soles on the ground when running. In fact, this method of landing is not scientific. Because there is no cushion when landing, it will have a great impact on the body.
