Lean Forward While Running

Lean Forward While You Run

A recent study has discovered that if you slightly lean forward while running, this can help reduce the strain on your knees, which is connected to the impact from each stride.

Keep your body in a straight line, slightly leaning forwards from your ankles as if you are falling forward rather than bending your hips. This position is best achieved if you shorten your stride length and take more strides per minute.

Increasing the number of strides may also make your running more efficient, which helps you to use your energy better and in turn improves your sports performance.
