Runners Workout #1

 #1 Basic Strength for Runners

The You Tube Video Goes LIVE, September 20th at 6:00AM. 

Supplies: resistance band, resistance loop or dumbells

This exercise workout is designed with runners in mind to focus on key areas that help us run better, stronger and ultimately faster.

Disclaimer: Please make sure that you consult with a medical or trained professional before starting an exercise program. Please stop the exercises if you start to feel pain. 

Let’s get to it! I really enjoy circuit training. It tends to keep me from getting bored. This is a three circuit series with three exercises in each circuit. To avoid a longer video, I only filmed one repetition, but I advise runners to complete two times through each circuit. 

Warm up Prior to starting the video. This can be a 5 minute walk or 5 minute easy jog. 

Circuit #1

Inchworms (10 reps)

3 Way Kicks (10 ea side)

Singe Leg Heel Raises (10 each side)
