Strengthen your upper body

Upper body strength is a secret weapon to help you run faster: it will help improve your posture and your arms’ driving action, says Anne-Marie Lategan

Stronger arms mean more power to your stride. Stronger arms means better form, and stronger arms means a quicker pace. Honestly. So what’s the one thing we always overlook when we’re cross-training? Bingo! Concentrate on the limbs that don’t touch the floor and you’ll make significant gains. Promise.

Warm up

Your warm-up should prepare your body for the workout that’s going to follow. Swing your arms in small circles forward. Increase the size of the circles, before changing direction to backward circles. Follow on with 20 jumping jacks. Repeat both exercises twice.

About Women’s Running

In the September issue of Women’s Running, we want you to banish the guilt and claim your running for you! We look at some incredible locations where you can regroup, get some me-time, and run your socks off. Go on - you deserve it. If you’re looking to push your training to the next level, we’ve got the ultimate introduction to triathlon, and how a bit of swimming and cycling can benefit your running in so many ways. And now that it’s back to school time, we’ve also included a no-time 10K training plan, for those of us with more than one schedule to juggle. Plus, we speak to the incredible and inspirational Anna McNuff, who is currently mid-way through a 2,620-mile tour of Britain - on foot, and barefoot. As a Girlguiding ambassador, she’s on a mission to inspire girls everywhere to be brave and seek adventure.
