by Brian Dalek

Want an edge on your buddy when it comes time to racing your upcoming 5K? Work on your form and you値l leave him huffing to the finish line as you down your post-race drink.

A recent Brazilian study took 16 experienced runners and looked at a handful of running mechanics to see how they affected performance. Researchers found that having attributes like a faster stride, less torso movement, and a freer movement of your arms and shoulders led to better running economy葉he amount of energy needed to maintain a certain pace. Having better running economy can help you run at a faster pace with the same amount of effort, avoid injuries, and maintain energy for the end of your race.
