Running Drills to improve technique

Running Drills

Sadly, having good flexibility and strength does not miraculously result in good running technique. Whilst strength training programs should be as specific as possible nothing quite prepares the body for running like running itself. If your hip stabilizers or core have been your major strength deficit then strengthening these muscle groups will help but unfortunately unless you actually use them during your run your wont be achieving the improvements as effectively as you could.
