Check it out! As runners we should be doing strength training too. Strength training helps with our endurance, develop power, and with injury prevention, which IMO is the most important reason to include strength training into your program.
I will say that I love to lift heavy but after a mid-length run, I actually like to bring the bands and use them. Our mid-length runs have already taxed our leg muscles, especially if you live in a hilly area like I do, but that doesn't mean we can't benefit from a little light strength training afterwards.
I will usually incorporate these three exercises right after my run and before my cool down stretches. A couple of ways to use them is by doing each exercises for 30 to 40 seconds for 3 to 4 sets or instead of time use reps instead. These will hit those legs, glutes and core.
Give them a try and let me know how it goes! Don't have a band, that is just fine. Do them without one.
Have A Happy Workout!!
Hi guys!! Welcome to my thoughts and just some health information that I hope you can use! Let me just state this now. I am not a writer, English major, or even a blogger, so there will be mistakes in here.
