9 Common Running Mistakes

From the bbc health website I found this list

Some of the most obvious weaknesses you see in runners and joggers are:

1. Bouncing up and down too much

2. Over striding

3. Not using their hamstrings enough

4. Landing on feet too heavily

5. Breaking action on landing

6. Not using arms

7. Twist midriff side to side while running

8. The head and upper body are bent forward

9. Jogging slower than you could walk!

Most joggers and runners are biomechanically inefficient because their running technique is poor.
