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.
