Upper Body Strength is just as important as lower body strength when it comes to the biomechanics of running. There is a saying that goes “your legs will follow your arms”. Therefore, in order to finish strong we must have upper body strength. So why not do exercises to enhance our upper body strength in order to hold that form or “arm action”? This video presented by Forever Fit Science illustrates a few exercises you can try in order to strengthen your shoulders, chest, back and of course our transmission-the core.
