Best 5 Essential Strength Exercises for Runners

Posted on

2. Split Squat

Runners need to keep their ankles, knees and hips healthy by strengthening each joint. Split Squats are a great way to get the legs working independently. Set yourself up in an extended lunge position. Let your back knee drop down toward the ground while keeping your weight on the heel of your front foot. Maintain good posture as you press through that heel to come back to starting position.

3. Lateral Lunge

We need to get those glutes moving in every direction! Start in a standing position with your feet hip-distance apart. Take a big step out to one side, then sit back into that hip like you’re sitting in a chair. Return to start and alternate legs.
