Lower Body Strength for Runners

I have spoken in the past about aiming to run three times a week and then you other sessions can then be based on resistnace work, stretching and active recovery. 

This week I’m going to give you a simple lower body strength session that you can incorporate quickly and simply into your training.

It includes training that will help your mobility, strength and balance.

You’ll know as a runner lots of the power and strength you need is from your glutes, this is true but also consider your quads and hamstrings. Get these activated and working efficiently you’ll notice a positive difference in your speed.

The exercises included in this session are:

  • Pigeon Pose
  • Man Maker
  • Squat
  • Good Morning
  • Dead Bug
  • Single Leg Balance
