Does putting your hands back while running (like naruto) really make you faster?

am i faster, because the wind pressure gets manipulated by the positions of the arms?

    It was tested and no in fact it makes it a tad slower, some people come out 20 seconds slower doing the naruto way .. because upright helps momentum BUT the Naruto run is cool to do when practicing ninja skills.....

    No, Unfortunately not... The runner needs the hands for the front too or the face will get hurt when the person fell down and hit face on the ground!

    If that were the most effective running method, the elites would be doing it. What it actually would do is greatly increase chances of injury and likely make it very difficult for a runner to reach their maximum potential. Pumping the arms is what comes naturally when running, and can actually help propel the body forward.

    Animated characters can do MANY things faster and better than the human body can.

    It does not make you fast rather running like usain bolt will make you faster in this world

    It definitely makes you feel like you are going faster, but it uses a lot more energy when running. You will not be able to run that fast for very long unfortunately :(

    If it would be faster I think athletes doing the 100m sprint would have already tried it.
