TWO movements for After the Run
With a thirst for running knowledge, I end up with a vast array of options to shape and add to my training. I try my them out and see what fits. Here are the two I have connected with and perform after each run.
My purposes with the exercises are balance, flexibility, and range of motion. The single leg touch and squat are often used for strength but that is not my goal.
I want my hamstrings to receive dynamic stretching through the single leg touch. Tight hamstrings cause havoc to the runner’s body. The best time to lengthen them out is after the run when they are still warm and supple.
The low repetition squats, done with the knees not moving forward, widen my hip’s range of motion, which is forgotten by many runners. If you are an office worker or driver, put this on your must-do list throughout the day.
Join me as I introduce the two simple movements in this video.
