🔥Strengthening is essential for us to improve as runners🔥Studies have shown that combining running with strength training exercises will not only help you prevent injury, but it will also make you a faster, stronger and more efficient runner.
☢️However, do we know how to perform a running-specific strengthening exercise?☢️
Still today, many runners go to the gym and use machines and free weights to improve their running. Even more, they perform exercises in positions that are not specific to running, and therefore, they get low to no improvement in return.
⚠️Strengthening for runners should be specific for runners, and thus, running specific features must be applied and taken into account⚠️
