Running Cues and drills By Roberta Cardoso

Cues are used very commonly in all aspects of sport when perfecting movements to ensure that we are being as effective as possible. It is the coach/trainer/specialist’s verbal communication in Laymans terms to inform the athlete to improve a technical aspect of their positioning. For example it maybe be confusing to hear “engage your gluteus maximus more in your toe-off phase” when “lift your hips higher” will give the same effect.

‘Drills’ are movements that are used to practice specific weaker areas of the movement e.g. ‘A’ skips to improve foot landing position and arm positioning.

Why Do we need to drills and cues?

Like any other athletic movement, running is a skill and in order to be better at that skill we need to practice sound technique and break the movement down in order to strengthen and improve that skill. Performing Cues and drills is the acquisition of efficient, pain free running.
