Having a good body is the desire of many people, but in order to improve immunity and strengthen the body, it is definitely necessary to move and drill. So many people choose to use running, an environmentally friendly and convenient exercise, to exercise their bodies. Running stride is very important for running, and today we will learn about stride. Stride is the distance of a step when we run, to the center of the foot to count, the same foot between two consecutive landings, even if the stride is stride.

So what does stride length represent? Some people are inherently taller, and if they have long legs, then when they run, their stride length is naturally larger than others. Generally speaking, when the stride frequency is similar, the larger the stride, the faster the pace, which actually means the running ability is stronger. But students who do not have long legs should not worry; through the latter days of hard practice, they can also improve the size of the stride. Next,  take a look at several strengthening stride training methods!

01High Leg Exercises

First of all, we have to swing the arms of both hands. In the process of practicing, the bending angle of the legs should naturally become 90 degrees. When one leg is lifted, the other leg should be as straight as possible. It can also be appropriate to learn some high-leg running action; through the high-leg exercise, we can fully exercise our lower abdomen, waist, and abdominal muscles. Pay attention to exercise, from slow to fast gradually.

02Uphill running with a back kick

When we practice uphill running, because the center of gravity of the body is forward, our torso will lean forward, and we need to unconsciously increase the pace to keep the body stable. Often, practicing uphill running is conducive to strengthening the stride.

Rear kick running in the practice of the main attention to three issues, first of all, the body should be slightly leaning forward, secondly, to use the toe stomp off the ground, swing the leg, using the knee joint to drive the hips to swing forward, and finally the foot off the ground when the rear kick with the thigh folded, the knee joint is relaxed, so that it is close to the hip.

03Exercise leg strength

We are running to a large extent to use the leg muscle strength, so increasing leg strength is also a way to increase the stride. You can choose to do some weighted exercises in the gym, but also in daily life, pay more attention to the exercise legs, such as in training to increase some of the frog jump, squatting, etc., which can be very good to help us exercise the thigh muscles, thus enhancing the stride capacity.

04jumping jacks

There are several points to note in the practice of the stride jump. First of all, you can perform sprints and mid-range runners to assist the jump, improve the jumping foot to land quickly, and increase the distance by swinging the legs and arms and driving the body with a hard upward swing of the arms, combined with a runner’s jump.

Whether you are a fast runner or a jogger, stride length is also just a way to assist you in increasing your pace. During running, you should still try to focus on your heart rate and stride frequency, and I believe that by learning more about running, your ability to run will be greatly increased!
