Mar 6, 2019
Pulling up sore after your weekly runs? It could be a bigger problem than you think, it could be a small fixable issue. The answers lie within the bigger global question that Think Fit. Be Fit. wants to help you answer. How do we exercise, compete, and have fun without pain despite our old injuries? The conversation on this always comes back to owning your training process, the ultimate fitness hack to what really matters: exercise longevity.
This episode covers running topics related to injury prevention and getting stronger. The important step is that you recognize that once a sports injury is sustained that it can continue to haunt you until you address with tailored strength training and a wholistic awareness of your training process. Inside the solo-cast you will find examples of common running issues that strength training can address. However we promote the use of detailed assessments to get detailed in the strength training. If you don’t want to get deeper with your exercise and prefer to ‘just do it’ (most of us have already tried that!), then this podcast series is not for you!
What you’ll learn in this episode:
- The biomechanic foundational thought process that almost all injury prevention programs dismiss or get wrong
