Franklin Method for Running: Relaxed Shoulders

This week I am going to take you outside in Brooklyn to show you how to improve your running with relaxed shoulders. If your shoulders are tight or hunched it will block movement of the spine, pelvis and leg. I am excited to share with you an easy way to relax your shoulders and gain more movement as you run.

Watch, and feel free to discuss in the comments!

    Eric Franklin you rock!! I always look forward to your videos for myself and to share !

    That looks so simple, yet so effective.
    Would it also be useful to try using the balls-in-armpits in a classical ballet class?

  • Sue Rothwell

    Another wonderful use of your balls, somewhere else to put them!
    Can’t wait to introduce balls in the armpits to my Pilates classes.
