BODYWEIGHT EXERCISES FOR RUNNING





Bodyweight exercises can be surprisingly difficult. While it's always best to add load or barbells, a lot can be gained from a little with using bodyweight. Here are some of my favourites.



REVERSE NORDIC:

A great way to hit the quadriceps eccentrically.




SHRIMP SQUAT LOWER:

Requires a lot of hip and knee eccentric strength.





HIGH PLANK TO STAR PLANK:

A great way to load the lateral core and glute medius.





HIGH PLANK HIP FLEXION:

Improve both core control and hip flexor strength in one.





SINGLE LEG GLUTE HIP THRUST:

Great one to strengthen glute max.





SOLEUS CALF RAISE:

A very underrated muscle group.






SHORT LEVER ADDUCTION:

A great way to hit an underutilised muscle group.





POGO JUMPS:

Improves both coordination and achilles spring.
