Strength Exercise For Running

In the images below you will see one of Principle Four Osteopathy client clients performing 3 different strength exercises that they incorporate into their weekly program 2 times per week.  Note:  This is only a snapshot of some of the things they do and is not inclusive of their entire program.  This particular individual has previously suffered from anterior knee and lateral hip pain which is now resolved and they are back building up their running volume.

As you will see we have included a number of exercises that involve bilateral stance, single leg sagittal plane focus and frontal plane focus.  These movements have been incorporated to address balance, strength and control for the lower limb and torso.
