Core Strength Training

Next to summer running, core strengthening is the most beneficial way to improve your running and prevent injuries.  Core strengthening generally focuses on muscles in the torso and hip area, though other supporting muscles are also targeted.  The document below lists our four major core strengthening routines, and the recommended frequency of each (usually 3x per week).  If you have never done the exercises before and would like more instruction, more detailed descriptions of the routines are listed at the bottom of this page.
