A slight lean forward while running puts you in a good posture for strong push-off and glute engagement. It helps to get a better economy while running. Lean forward posture naturally engages the core. Lean should come from the ankle (as against bending at the waist), aligning it with the lumbar spine, and keeping the pelvis neutral.
Wall Drill is a classic running-form drill to teach lean forward body posture. Wall Drill also helps with learning to drive the knee up while running.
This drill requires wall support.
Since this is a form drill, doing the drill before your run makes it easy to transcend to running. Keep the cues in mind while running - lean from the ankle, keep the body neutral, and don’t arch the back.
