How to Improve Running Form

Uphill running is a great way to improve your running form. Think of it as nature’s weight room for runners.

Hill running, just like heavy weight training, increases muscle recruitment by improving the efficiency between the neural impulses in your brain and your muscles.

As a result, hill training helps reduce ground contact time, allowing us to spend more time moving forward and less time with our feet planted on the ground.
Try throwing in a hill repeat workout every 1-2 weeks or including shorter, 10-20 second uphill strides at the end of an easy run 1-2 times a week to being to reap the benefits.
