Beginner’s Yoga for Runners – Day 3
Welcome to Lesson #3 of the Beginner’s Yoga for Runners Program!
In today’s lesson, I show you how you can supplement your current workout routine with my top 5 postures for improving your performance as a runner.
As a runner, you’re already pretty strong. Not many people can go on a 2, 3, 5, or even 26 mile run and make it. But because your primary (or one of your primary) focuses is running, that means that there are certain aspects of your fitness that could be left out.
Running is a very repetitive motion. The hip flexors do not extend, there is minimal arching of your spine, and very little twisting involved. These are just some of the reasons why runners can develop imbalances in their bodies, and if unchecked, these imbalances can lead to discomfort, pain, or even injury.
The following 5 postures are exercises you can do strengthen the areas of your body that runners tend to neglect.
Watch the video below for a full walkthrough. Enjoy!
You can do all of these poses in under 10 minutes! Use them on off days, before your other workouts, or even as a standalone workout. The more you do them, the more noticeable the results will be! Do these just 2-3x per week and you can expect to notice a significant improvement in your balance, strength, and your running performance in just 2 weeks.
