ARE YOU FIT TO RUN PART TWO

ARE YOU FIT TO RUN?  PART TWO

It’s no secret that running—for sport, fitness, or simply to burn off stress—is hugely popular.  It’s one of the most basic, fundamentally human things our movement system is designed to do, yet research suggest that approximately three out of four runners get a least one running-related injury per year.  Chronic injuries, soft-tissue strains, and nagging pains can steal away valuable training time and derail the efforts of even the most committed runners.

Fortunately, many of the factors that lead to running-related injuries and inefficiencies can be identified through specific movement screening and strategic implementation of specific strength, stability, and mobility training techniques.

In today’s post, you’ll learn evidence-based exercise strategies for improving running performance by decreasing biomechanical inefficiencies, developing functional strength, and increasing task-specific stability.
