Jogging Technique

Jogging posture is very important. Good jogging or running posture means holding your back, shoulders and neck straight. Focus on holding your abs tight and shoulders rolled back, but don't too rigid. Jogging is all about relaxation so try to relax your body.

Poor jogging posture wastes energy and exacerbates the impact of the exercise. Elite runners are fast and run in a straight with a quicker foot strike and higher knees and elbows. For jogging longer distances try to let your arms hang loosely at your sides, lean slightly forward and keep your head in a neutral position.

If you are new to jogging and are not sure how to set up a training schedule, how much exercise you should be completing or you are worried about other health problems, we recommend contacting a medical professional or fitness expert such as a personal trainer.
