STRENGTH TRAINING FOR RUNNERS
The complete strength workout for runners is made of 3 Complexes (circuits) that each have 3 exercises that are focused on improving the below functions:
Function A: improved ankle mobility for better foot strikes
Function B: increased flexibility mid thigh to mid torso to lengthen your stride
Function C: improved head positioning and spinal alignment for better arm swing mechanics
With this 9-minute strength workout exercise for runners, I’m giving you Complex 3 that improves the above mentioned functions while seriously strengthening and lengthening your entire posterior chain from your ankles up to the base of your skull with special emphasis on your calves, hamstrings, glutes, and spinal erectors.
You’ll be doing 3 rounds with the below exercises. Focus on good form and a relaxed steady rhythm!
