Guess what….it’s Leg Day!
Even though running gives us strong legs, we still need to work our hips, glutes, calves and hamstrings a little more to go the extra mile!
Day 21 exercises:
- Balance and Reach – 20X each leg
- Squats – 50X
- Mountain Climbers – 50X
- Plank UP and Downs – :60
Balance and Reach: Check out the FB video to make sure you’re doing this exercise correctly. It is great for hip strength and will help you shift your strength into the bigger muscles giving you more speed when running. Make sure to use the opposite hand from the leg that is going backwards.
Bonus: #GoTheExtraMile – Time to step it up and go the extra mile…Bonus = extra round of Day 21 exercises. You got this!

We’ve got some slackers this month…and maybe you’ve been running and just skipping your strength work but time for a reality check…
Running is great and will help you lose weight…but strength training will help your body burn more calories and will translate into faster times, and a stronger, leaner physique. Grab the weights and get moving Core Crew! 🙂
