We are runners…and runners need strong legs!

What more needs to be said?

Let’s do this!

Day 20 exercises: 2-3 sets of 10

  • Squats (this is way too easy – double up and make it 3 x 20!)
  • Single Leg Balance
  • Weighted Hip Lift
  • :60 Wall Sit

Bonus: Modern Mom/Dad Hips – Hope to see everyone tackling this awesome hip strength workout today. 4 minutes per leg. You have time!

Extra Credit: Since today is leg day and we’re getting in some great hip work too…AND I know our 7 Key Stretches for Runners get boring…let’s throw in some yoga!

Yoga for Runners: Tight Hips and Legs

Speed Work: Have fun with fartleks this week Crew! Click here and scroll down Monday’s post for our speed play workout.

Day 20 “how to” videos:

Squats – Great for quads, hamstrings and glutes!

Single Leg Balance: Balance exercise to improve neuromuscular function, balance and coordination.

Originally, I was thinking of the single leg balance exercise that is basically the same as the single leg deadlift. Then I found this video and decided to switch it up a bit. Let’s try this single leg balance reach exercise and work on balance, coordination and core strength.

Weighted Hip Lift: For this exercise, find a bench or use the side of a low bend or couch. You can use a dumbbell in place of the barbell. Lift as high as you can using your hips and glutes and squeeze at the top. Hold your core in tight!

Wall Sit: You know how to do this one, right?? Here it is again…just in case. 🙂
