Build A Strong Upper Body For Running

by Neighborhood Trainers Finding a trainer is a personal choice

When you’re a runner you can imagine that running is all you have to do. Actually, it does work for some people. They get out there on the pavement and do their run. After that, they can make their way through the day without much thought to their support.

But there’s a different approach which puts your running in the context of an entire fitness regimen and actually sets you up to run better than ever.

Initially, it seems counter-intuitive to work your upper body. Everyone knows muscle weighs more than fat or nothing, so why would you work your upper body? A New York personal trainer will help you build upper body strength so that your legs don’t have to do the work.

When you find a personal trainer to help you meet your running goals, one of the things they will do is work with you to increase your upper body strength so that your legs are doing the running and not carrying your torso around.

There’s a side effect too; the strongest runners are the ones who have form and they can maintain it throughout the whole race. Upper body strength is the single element that will give you form. It also helps you become fitter and faster too. If that’s one of your goals, then give it a try.

Bodies are amazing things, and they will even run ultra-marathons if you ask them. But we tend to believe what we know about them. You have never run on a Monday because they’re bad enough. But actually, when you try it, it's not so bad after all.

Working with someone who understands how bodies work in a better way than the average person is going to put new and different ideas into your running. All you have to do is be open to the idea it could be different and a world of difference will open up.

These people know how to get more from you than you do. If you’re planning to take your running to the next level, getting a personal trainer might be an idea.
