Strengthen Your Quads and Run Faster!

Monday, August 10, 2015

Hey RIF REVers!

A big congratulations to everyone that ran City2Surf yesterday! With some big Aussie running events still to come this year, I want to look at strengthening the quads targeting the part of range that ALWAYS gets missed even when you do your gym programs, functional stuff, EVERYTHING! Remember your teardrop muscle is called “The Quitter” for a reason so it needs special attention and sometimes a stern talking to!

Get going with these three exercises and remember the key component is the inner range from about 35 degrees of bend to straight and then back again so when you first get going it’s ok to just use a small step. You can do this one anywhere guys and it will start to put air back in your tyres! Bet your times come down.

Good luck RIF REVers!

Stay Running,

Paul
