It’s important to have good posture running or walking,
because your body loves good posture!
Over the years your posture gets worn down from living with stress, not getting enough quality sleep and not consciously sitting or walking with good posture.
Our bodies become slumped!
Learning good posture by getting active and learning to run through ChiRunning will change your running and daily living. ChiRunning helps to continually strengthening core muscles by developing the memory programed within you for good posture.
Your muscles, ligaments, bones and even your organs
function well with good posture!
The results for great posture are awesome!
- muscles are not strained
- ligaments are relaxed
- bones are in alignment
- organs are not compressed allowing proper functioning — good digestion, proper breathing and easier elimination
Learn to walk first with awesome posture,
work it into running after.
- Stand with your feet shoulder length apart and lean.
- Lean slightly, but enough so that your heels are staying put.
- As soon as you are tempted to fall – take a step. You are learning how to walk again!
It may sound strange when I give you these instructions…
Visions of you literally tipping over and losing your balance.
It isn’t that way at all.
The lean is very slight, it is the gears to set your speed.
It will feel weird at first, nevertheless your body won’t take long to get used to this.
After all, this is a walking posture you were absolutely born with!
Danny Dreyer gives an awesome example of great posture walking – by taking us back to the past…
You may remember a lifeguard shout, “Walk!” when you ran by the pool.
Or a teacher at school yell, “No running in the halls!”
Your reaction to this:
You slowed down and walked really quick steps, but still tried to maintain a running Speed.
Slightly leaning forward at the ankles, quick short steps and eyes looking in front of you. Of course you would never look back because you didn’t want to be known as trouble.
Learn good running posture today!
To get awesome results for great running tomorrow!
You taking stress off your knees, hips and lower back.
If you kept on running with the wrong posture, the strain or injuries would be never ending!
