Each and every runner has a goal of running faster. Whether this is to achieve a faster pace or finish the next race with a personal best, speed comes with it a sense of fulfillment. Is getting faster a goal of yours?
As we age year after year, it’s inevitable that running speed will decline if not addressed properly. Instead of continuing to be frustrated and seeing minimal results, I created an entire webinar that reviews the research on running speed and shares a handful of the most impactful exercises that you can start implementing TODAY!
Have you ever heard of the phrase, “If you don’t use it, you lose it?” That’s exactly what happens to the human body if we do not incorporate the appropriate functional movement strategies that match our goals. Speed in particular requires a very unique type of training consisting of strength training and plyometrics. Even then, these strategies must match your individual needs, injury history, and be performed proficiently to see results.
