Paul here this week! Just wanted to say a big thanks to all the awesome RMA ladies who attended Will’s ‘Be A Marathoner’ workshop down in Sydney on the weekend! We’re glad it all worked out and we have been hearing some awesome feedback, so big thanks for coming along guys.
This week I wanted to focus on your extension through the body as a runner. Ideally you want have length while you run, but you also want that length through the body to be strong in order to keep you moving forwards efficiently. So this week we are going to be taking a look at an awesome exercise called back bracing.
Incorporating back bracing into your routine can really help take your running to the next level as it firstly will optimise length through the front of the body, as well as giving you crucial postural strength. It’s this combination of optimal length and postural strength that will really help you keep your technique strong and consistent over those longer distances. As a runner this is SUPER important because once your technique starts to falter, that’s when injuries can occur!
So check out the video above to see exactly what I’m talking about and start to include this into your routine. Back bracing is a great little exercise which is also a great one to do after a big run!
Happy running this week guys!
