More on running

On my morning commute I see a lot of people running/jogging. One thing I always look at when observing other runners is the trunk rotation. Simply look at where the arms would (or worse, do) cross. A long while ago, in the very scientific journal 'Men's Health', I read a piece of advice that if you were to extend your arms out while jogging that is only when the wrists should cross. Any extra trunk rotation is wasted energy.

Think about it. The idea of jogging is to go straight forward, why would you include any motion going sideways? Take a look next time you see a runner or are a runner...
