400M RUN

  • Look Ahead. Your eyes should be focused on the ground about 10 to 20 feet ahead of you. Don't stare at your feet. Not only is this proper running form, but it's also a safer way to run because you can see what's coming and avoid falling.
  • Land Midfoot. Don't be a toe runner or a heel-striker. If you land on your toes, your calves will get tight or fatigue quickly and you may develop shin pain. 
  • Keep your feet pointed straight ahead. Make sure your toes are pointed in the direction you want to go. Running with your feet pointed in or out could lead to running injuries. If you don't naturally run that way, it may take practice to keep your feet pointed straight. Try doing it for short distances and then increase the time or distance that you run that way.
  • Keep hands at your waist. Try to keep your hands at waist level, right about where they might lightly brush your hip. Your arms should be bent at a 90-degree angle. Some beginners have a tendency to hold their hands way up by their chest, especially as they get tired.
  • Relax your hands. As you run, keep your arms and hands as relaxed as possible. You can gently cup your hands as if you are holding an egg and you don't want to break it. Don't clench your fists because it can lead to tightness in your arms, shoulders, and neck.
  • Check your posture. Keep your posture straight and erect. Your head should be up, your back straight, and shoulders level. Keep your shoulders under your ears and maintain a neutral pelvis. Make sure you're not leaning forward or back at your waist, which some runners do as they get fatigued. Check your posture once in a while.
  • Relax your shoulders. Your shoulders should be relaxed and square or facing forward, not hunched over. Rounding the shoulders too far forward tends to tighten the chest and restrict breathing. You'll breathe a lot easier if your shoulders are relaxed.
  • Rotate arms from the shoulder.Your arms should swing back and forth from your shoulder joint, not your elbow joint. Think of your arm as a pendulum, swinging back and forth at your shoulder. Drive your elbow backward and then let it swing back toward you. Your hand should be almost grazing your hip as your arm comes back in front of you.
  • Don't Bounce. Try to keep your stride low to the ground and focus on quick stride turnover. Too much up-and-down movement is wasted energy and can be hard on your lower body.
  • Keep Your Arms at Your Side. Avoid side-to-side arm swinging. If your arms cross over your chest, you're more likely to slouch, which means you're not breathing efficiently.

10 BURPEES with push-up at the bottom

  • Stand straight with your feet shoulder width apart and hands by your sides. This is the start position.
  • In one smooth motion, squat down and place your hands palms down on the floor in front of your feet.
  • Lean forward, so your weight is on your hands, at the same time jumping your legs out behind you until they are fully extended. Your body should form a straight line with your weight supported on your toes and the balls of your feet and your arms fully extended. (In a push up position)
  • Jump your feet out by spreading your legs, so that they are wider than hip width apart, then immediately jump them back together.
  • Complete 1 full push up.
  • Jump your feet forward to just behind your hands.
  • Use an explosive motion to push through your heels and return to the start postion.
  • Repeat.

MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS

  • Place your hands flat on the floor, shoulder width apart.
  • Extend your torso and legs fully behind you with only your toes and balls of your feet touching the floor.
    Your body should be in a straight line, with your weight supported on your hands and toes only.
  • Starting with either leg, flex your knee and hip at the same time to bring your knee up and under your hip. Your other leg should remain fully extended. This is the start position.
  • Using an explosive movement, reverse the position of your legs, by extending the bent leg back and simultaneously flexing the straight leg until it is in the start position.
  • Continue alternating in this manner for the desire amount of time.
