Two Sneaky Tricks to Kick Your Run Into High Gear

May 26, 2015 1 min read

Want to run faster and farther with less effort? It's a lot easier than you'd think! Here are two AMAZINGLY simple tricks to help you out:

Know Your Destination

Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, according to a study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, knowing the "end point" of your run can help to improve your run speed. You will run faster the entire time, but because you are working towards a goal, it won't feellike you are working harder. You will perceive it as exactly the same amount of effort though you're running faster.

Focus Outside Yourself

Many of us spend our run times thinking and ruminating on the problems of the day. Big mistake! Another study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research detailed how an external focus helped to improve run time. Sprinters who focused on something external performed better than those with an internal focus or wandering minds. What does this mean for you? Simple: look at the world around you, watch the people you pass, listen to music or an audiobook, read a book (on the treadmill), watch TV (also on the treadmill), marvel at the scenery--pretty much do anything that gets you out of your head and focusing on things AROUND you.   Just like that, you'll run faster, work harder, but won't even notice the difference!

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.
