Running comes easy for most, but running properly with efficient mechanics takes time to develop. Running Arms are designed to take the guesswork out of arm positioning.
Most young athletes need to be reminded of how important their arms are for speed and power. Once in place, the Running Arms position the arms at a desired 90 degrees. The simple design uses a length of soft, stretchy neoprene that wraps around the elbow, held in place with comfortable, stitched loops on the thumb. Adjust the length for different sized athletes using the Velcro tab on the back.
Better mechanics = Faster times
Efficient movement = Increased endurance
Whatever your motivation, Tumbl Trak Running Arms can help you get one step closer to your goals. These neoprene straps adjust to make a perfect fit for many sized runners. Just place the loop on the thumb, wrap the strap around the elbow, and place the second loop on the thumb as well. Your arm will be in the ideal 90 degree angle recommended for efficient running.
- Running Arms come as a pair (1 for each arm).
- There is a velcro tab and flap to adjust the size to work with shorter arms.
- Helps keep the athletes arms at a 90 degree angle.
- The strap goes around the elbow and hooks around the thumb. If the arm straightens, the strap falls off.
From Runners World:
The way you move your arms can help you move faster or slow you down. “Your arms should be at a 90-degree angle,” says Nurse. Your palms or fists move from chin to hip. That’s going to help you propel your body forward. Keep your elbows close to your sides. “If your elbows point outwards, that means your arms are crossing your body, which actually slows you down—you won’t be able to get the momentum you need,” says Fierras. Try pointing your thumbs to the ceiling to keep your arms in line or imagining an invisible line that runs down the center of your body—don't let your hands cross over that line.

What other running technique tips could we use to help an athlete improve their form?
While Running Arms are a great way to bring awareness to arm mechanics while running, there are definitely other tips for arm shaping that running experts recommend! 1) Encourage athletes to keep their arms near their body, and NOT crossing over them midline as they swing forward. 2) Hands and wrists should remain relaxed and loose. 3) Elbows should drive backward as far as possible.
