3 Strength Exercises for Every Runner

3 strength exercises for every runner

As a runner, it is very important that you mind the small things. Most of my running friends do the same thing before and after each run. A quick little stretch before heading out, and the same old stretches after a long run.

In order to continuously improve your running you have to make sure your strength work is there. Without it, you will over load the small parts of the body because you failed to focus on the major movers (glutes) after all those miles.

These 3 strength exercises for every runner are essential to building a strong running base. Do these movements after short workouts, or on your days off. If not, you will suffer the same as many of your running friends do from “bad hips and knees”. This pain can be prevented, but you have to work your strength.

Toes to bar can be a very tricky movement. When one lacks rhythm at the bottom of the movement it is difficult and for some even impossible to connect more than one. But no worries, we are here to help.

Most problems during the toes to bar occur at the body. There is one quick fix that is mentioned a few times in the video. The problem is hesitation at the bottom (explained in the video) if this can be fixed, you will have a much better time finding your rhythm during the movement.

If you have any questions about the movement please do not hesitate to ask. I’m happy to help as much as possible.

Here is a quick toes to bar tutorial video that is guaranteed to help you succeed when it comes to toes to bar.
