Resistance Bands Training For Runners

You can buy these in line with your fitness level and training goals—in other words, they are easily customized. In my experience, resistance band exercises are one of the best tools you can use to keep strength training when you no longer have access to a gym or just dot want to go there for all personal reasons.

foot types for runners

How to Determine Your Foot Type?

When it comes to foot type biomechanics, runners are divided into three broad categories: the neutral-footed, the flat-footed (the overpronator runner), and the high-arched (the supinator runner).

So please do not neglect strength training. Of course, this is easier said than done. Sticking to the regular running program, then having enough time to make the trip to the gym to strength train, is not always easy to pull off—especially if you just like the rest of us, stressed and pressed for time.
