What is the biggest mistake most runners make? In my opinion the answer is failing to incorporate a proper exercise program to build a better runner and prevent injuries. What does this mean? Running requires stability, strength, power, and a proper amount of mobility. A program that addresses each of these areas will allow you to run faster, longer, and with less pain.

I have put together 5 exercises that I find benefit the vast majority of people the most. These exercises are based on my own clinical experience, continuing education, and conversations with other professionals.

Long Stride, Reverse Twisting Lunge

Side Half Plank with Hip Abduction

Box Jump Progressions

Soleus Strengthening

Single Leg Tippy Bird
