Runners Don't Have To Strengthen Their Legs, Right?
Wrong! If more runners did regular strength training we would have many fewer patients in our offices. When you run, you actually use a very small range of motion over and over again. This can lead to weakness in many of the other leg muscles that help to support your hips, knees, ankles and also your core. If your main way to keep fit is running, then you should be incorporating some regular strength training to help you keep running. We have shared this handout before, but with a newsletter all about runners, we thought we would share it again. Make sure you share it too!
for the a good runners strength training program.
