GCJ's HOW CAN I RUN FASTER ?


by Laura Ramus, P.T., A.T.C.


Sprinting is an important aspect of many sports, and an effective sprint technique is very important for maximizing running speed.

Correct sprinting technique allows you to use all of your energy to move your body forward. Unnecessary movements of your trunk will waste energy needed to move your body forward.
