hey what's up everyone its Matt comma founder of TV TC and in this video I'm going to show you five simple tips that you can start to implement today to allow you to have proper running form so maybe right now you're in the process of just starting to run and you're like you know you have no idea how to have where your arm is supposed to be where your hands are supposed to be and you want to just know exactly how to run properly or you have been running for a period of time and you just want to fine-tune how you how you run okay so here are five simple tips the first thing that I want you to think about is your shoulder blades okay what you want to have is a slight retraction with your shoulder blades and basically all that means is you want to have you own your shoulder blades to be slightly back the challenge with a lot of people is that their shoulders are forward and what this doesn't allow you to do which gets back into not just having proper running form but running for a longer period of time more efficiently is breathing okay your ability to run for a longer period of time it's a look a lot of it is gonna come down to how much oxygen you were allowing into your lungs so you right now if you're watching this video and your shoulder blades are really far forward go ahead and do this right bring your shoulders really far forward like this and try and take a big deep breath in compared to the shoulder blades right back over exaggerated you're a Latta you're allowing more oxygen to get into your lungs okay so when you're running I want you to think about slight retraction of your shoulder blades okay you don't have to over exaggerate it like you're a chicken or anything like that right just slightly it's a slight retraction okay that's the first thing the second tip is going to come down to your head position okay the challenge with a lot of people especially if they're working a desk job is that their chin either too far forward okay and you don't really stay all the way back usually it's really it's usually just the head is too far forward so once you want you to do is when you are running imagine that you have a string attached to your head yeah string attached to your head and it's literally stolen they're pulling you up again so you keeping a nice straight kind of posture shoulder blades slightly back and you don't like this you know looking down you know look it up it's just slightly just looking forward yeah and again coming down to the to the Airways allowing oxygen to get into the to the airways is if your change like this you're not allowing as much oxygen to get into your lungs again if you don't know everyone at first aid first day of course what do they tell you to do with a chin to pull it slightly up right allowing that oxygen to get into those lungs okay so when you're writing down look oh they look like this you get just slightly up and then you're able to breathe more efficiently yeah but had proper running form and you're able to run for a longer period of time the third thing they don't want to talk about is your arms the positioning of your arms the challenge with a lot of people that I see either yeah running like this okay they're running too far out la arms just going all over the place all their hands when they run it looks just look so weird like a spider or something like that wrong metaphor but you get the idea so where I want you to have your arm positions is just slightly touching your ribcage yeah you don't want it compressed in otherwise when you're running you're gonna get some massive chafe or along your armpits its own we don't want that I've had that it's terrible so what you want to do just slightly on your ribcage and when you're running imagine that you have these two doors tucked in to your to your shoulders right and you're really trying to keep it in there because if you touch the doors that everyone in the universe does okay so you don't want to touch those doorways so it doesn't big war you're going forward and you're keeping it nice and tight if it goes out like that then everyone in the universe dies we don't want that to happen so just keeping us slightly in okay I literally just came up with that metaphor wiles on this on the spot though if you're running it's gonna look like this okay shoulder by it slightly back chin slightly up and then you're running with the elbow is slightly tough did okay just like this go and also with the on positioning as well you notice that my arms that are in a 90 degree angle they know like this again they're just not some 90 degrees elbows going slightly back and so on cool so that's the third tip the fault pit they don't want you to think about is activating your core and the reason why this is so important and I'll leave a link above if you don't know how to activate your core because that can take four or five minutes I'm gonna keep this short so activating your call is really important because when you're running let's say that this is your this is your body here okay I'm literally just making this up on the spot if this is your body here and down below is your hips when you're running as you take one step forward use your two legs here I just take one step forward if your core is switched off you notice a lot hips swing okay going side by side by side by side and if there's a lot of pressure which is going to come down to number five with you foot positioning is incorrect it's going to put a lot of pressure on your back while you're doing keep rotation okay as you have a strong core you notice that there isn't gonna be as much hip rotation there is gonna be hip rotation but not an excessive amount which which one causes you to have any back problems along the journey if you're running for a long period of time and running for a long period you laugh okay so activating your core will definitely help you with your hip positioning which will also help you to run for a longer period of time as well because you know you're more efficient with your running you're saving more energy which allows you to run longer so what I'll do is I'll leave a link below that teaches you how to activate your core the fifth tip they don't want you to think about how you're positioning your feet when you're running yeah this is a massive problem with a lot of people especially if they have any postural issues either they've got internal rotation whether feet going like this okay they'll fit or it's like external rotation where the feet are going outwards like this but what I want to talk about is when you run thinking about where you want to land on your feet so I'm actually gonna head outside in a second and demonstrate this but basically what I want your thing about is if this is if this is your foot right here this is my shirt I'm gonna put this on in a second what you want to be landing on a lot of people think that because they walk like this boom boom and then boom okay they're landing on the heel first you don't wanna be doing that while you're running when you're running I want you to land in this position here pretty much the mid-foot yeah I'm gonna give you a bonus clip as well with this it's gotta just gloat about this so it's not actually five tips it's six so when you're running I want you to make sure that you're landing in this position here okay this in here and which brings in to the sixth bonus tip it is when I started keeping a shoulder blades back I also want you to have a forward lean with your body just slightly though not like this we Vinnie over just slightly the reason why is because if you're too upright especially when you're landing on your heels there's so much pressure going down in your hip because the gravity is going straight down on you go strategy hips which can cause hip problems along the way when you have a slight forward with a slight forward lean in your body number one you're a more efficient when you're running because you're allowing gravity to help you when you run okay but also it's gonna allow you to have it's going to allow you to land in this position here okay so you may need a visual demonstration so I'm gonna put these buggers on on the head on outside and give you a visual demonstration with all these tips in order especially number five and six so you're gonna see me just demonstrate the pretty much all the six tips in order and I really want you to make sure that you're focusing especially where I'm landing on my feet thinking about my hip positioning thinking about where my arms are that shoulder blades back but my body slightly forward all those things come into place when you are on you do have proper form and I'll show you from a side angle and I'll also show you from front angle as well those tips have helped you in just another few things just walk in and just while I'm on the spud is also keeping your minds up with your hands notice inside and they're just another few things that with your hands you can either keep them straight and like if you don't wanna look like The Terminator or anything like that they can just tuck them in or you can just haven't start by side keeping your thumbs facing up and also if you do want to learn how to breathe properly while you run you can check out my other video I'll leave a card at the top they can

  1. Hope you can help me! Outdoors I cannot run more than 1 minute continuously without gasping for air. Indoors, on a Treadmill, I can last 10 minutes..I have tried outdoors many many times; I cannot improve. I am healthy and fairly fit and slim.. Would you be able to tell me what might be my problem?

  2. Beginners get compression sleeves to avoid shin splints and aching knees. It will save you from a lot of pain on your lower legs and knees. I can't walk now because my knees and shins are aching badly and the pain diffuses throughout the body. It's one mistake I wish somebody warned me about before running.

  3. Great video, very informative, well explained, and no bs, thank you. I’m definitely gone keep watching your videos on my journey to become a better runner.

  4. I've started running about a month ago… And obviously I've been doing it wrong… Thank you for the video.. I will implement it tomorrow and see how it goes

  6. Hey Matt .. in long run .. I feel pain in my left foot knee what can be reason of same and suggest solution for same… Thanks for guidance 😊..

  7. 1: 1:05 Shoulder blades (Bring shoulder blades slightly back)
    2: 1:36 Head position (Head slightly up, don't tilt it towards the ground nor the sky. Imagine a string attached to your head pulling you upward)
    3: 2:48 Arms position (Arms at a 90° angle, Arms slightly touching your rib cage. Imagine running between two walls placed shoulder width, don't touch them or you'll scrape your arms)
    4: 4:19 Activating your Core (To minimize hip rotation while running, helps you save energy and thus you can run for a longer period of time | Check Matt Camas video for activating core)
    5: 5:36 Feet position while running (Land on midfoot not heel)
    6: 6:40 A slight forward lean with your body (Allows gravity to help you run, also going to allow you to land on the midfoot
