One of the most common habits runners have is the tensing and lifting of the shoulders, which includes the deltoids, trapezius, romboids, simply put it’s your shoulders and shoulder blades. The idea is to relax and release the tension in the area. I explain more in this video. This will also help you minimize running injuries related to shoulders, down the road.
This is probably one of the most common reasons we experience shoulder, neck or back muscle pain.
Your body always tries to bring itself back into alignment. When you look at your phone, walking down the street typing, hunching over your computer, or simply walking or running bending from the hips, you back muscles will activate, or engage to pull the body back into alignment.
If the body doesn’t come back into alignment, those muscles stay activated and, in time, this is what leads to muscle strain.
