Here are some exercises that won’t take much time, but will give you a full-body workout in 5 or so minutes.

1. Plank to Push-up: this will develop core strength and improve upper body strength
Plank to Pushup: begin face down with your arms shoulder width apart and your legs extended behind you. While in the Plank, raise up one arm at a time until your arms are fully extended. Return to the Plank position and repeat. Do 1-3 sets of 10-15 reps.

2. Body Squats: works legs, core, and arms
Place your feet shoulder width apart with your arms out in front of you at shoulder height and squat down to the height of the chair, or to where you feel comfortable. Remember to keep your feet/knees facing straight forward. Do 1 to 3 sets of 10-15 repetitions at a slow tempo.

3. Lateral tube walking: works legs, primarily gluteal muscles
Place a resistance band around your ankles with your hands on your hips and walk laterally for 10-15 steps. Always remember to have your feet facing forward. Do 1-3 sets. This will burn.

4. Standing rows: works muscles in the mid back
Place a resistance band around a sturdy object and pull band back with your arms adjacent to your body while standing up tall and engaging your core. Make sure to squeeze your shoulder blades together when performing this exercise. Do 1 to 3 sets of 10-15 repetitions at a slow tempo.

Check out Ryan in the news! His Strength Training Exercises to Reduce Over-Pronation

04/05/2012

There are a number of strength training exercises beneficial for runners. As if running 20+ miles a week isn't enough... I know. But, it isn't. Running 20+ miles a week is actually the very reason you should be adding strength training to your routine.

Our expert fitness consultant, Ryan Krane, has shared 4 key reasons why strength training is important, then elaborates for us on how to reduce a common (and sometimes painful) issue with runners, over-pronation.

Why Do Runners Strength Train?

1. Reduce tight muscles having to compensate for weak muscles

2. Slow down force on tight muscles

3. Strengthen hips which takes stress off of the lower back

4. Decrease over-pronation (when the foot moves too far inward), which is very prominent in runners

Reduce Over-pronation

Over-pronation occurs when the foot collapses too far inward stressing the plantar fascia (the area underneath the arch of the foot.) Normally, one pronates every time he/she walks, but excessive pronation is called over-pronation. When this occurs it affects the feet, knees, hips, low back and even the shoulder.

A few ways to reduce over-pronation...

Calves

Massage and stretch the calves to increase dorsiflexion at the foot/ankle. Dorsiflexion is the bending at the ankle. By improving the dorsiflexion, one will have more flexibility at the ankle, which will allow the foot to over-pronate less.

IT Band

Massage the IT Band with a foam roller or tennis ball to quiet down the tightness throughout this part of the leg. The IT Band attaches from the glute maximus and runs down the side of the leg into the knee area. When the IT Band is tight it will accelerate the force of the leg moving inward, which will cause the foot to move inward as well. It is often that tightness through the IT Band that promotes over-pronation.

Glutes

Strengthen the glutes to slow down the force of the foot moving too far inward. Most individuals who over-pronate have weak glute muscles and strengthening this area is a must. A simple exercise to strengthen glutes is lateral tube walking across a field/court/room. Place a stretch band around your ankles and move your leg sideways while keeping your feet forward.

Decreasing over-pronation, which is very prominent in runners, will help add endurance, speed and efficiency to your run and ultimately place less stress on your body.
