Hey all you runners! Lacing up your sneakers isn’t the only thing you should be doing to improve your running. It’s important to cross-train to create better muscle balance and boost your stamina and form. This simple workout from Runtastic’s fitness coach Lunden Souza will do just that.
Not a pavement pounder? These moves are great for non-runners, too! They improve your core, build strength, and develop overall muscle balance, coordination, and control.
- 20 Squats (add dumbbells to increase the intensity)
- 20 Side Lunge and Reach (add dumbbells to increase the intensity)
- 10 Push-Ups
- 12 Marching Bridges
- 20 Lunge to High Knee
- 10 Jump Squats
Go through all of the exercises with little to no rest in between. Then rest at the end for 1 to 2 minutes (or until you’re able to catch your breath and can hold a conversation). Repeat the circuit 3 to 5 times.
