Am I a twister when I run?

How do I run faster?

Build a Better You & Become a Faster Runner

This running series video is looking at the running classification of a twister.

This female client who is just over 30 years old is a twister, and this is marked on the video by the line down from the hips in between the legs and the circle highlighting the right arm.

If you watch the legs closely they both cut the line in half and it is as if she is walking on a tightrope.

As these legs go in front of one another unevenly more rotation is evident through the ankle, knee, and hip which in the long term could cause injury and is also inefficient due to the lateral movement.

An ideal loading position is to have the ankle underneath the knee and hip, as close as possible to a straight loading line.

Looking at her elbow you can see her arm crooks out as she drives forward, and her hand disappears behind her chest. Then looking at shoulders she sways from side to side, so here we have a twister.

Rill number one for twisters is in a kneeling position, having pelvis in neutral and two dumbbells in the hands. Keeping the chest still, drive the arms back and forth in a punching motion for 30 seconds and repeat four times.

This is practising keeping the chest still, and the arms moving rapidly. It will also as strengthen your obliques.

The second drill is in a plank position lifting each hip with a small contraction, just off the ground and keeping your pelvis square to the floor. You can do this  for sets of 30 seconds or two sets of 60,and again as practising moving limbs stable base.

So how do I run faster?
