LOWER-BODY POWER MOVES
Improve your glute and leg strength to help you go the distance
BARBELL SPLIT SQUATS
Place a bar on your shoulders and rest one leg on a bench behind you. Squat with your standing leg until your elevated knee almost touches the floor. Do three sets of 10 reps on each leg.
STIFF-LEGGED DEAD LIFT
Stronger hamstrings lead to longer, faster runs. With your knees slightly bent, grab two dumbbells and bend your hips. Keep your back straight to feel the stretch in your legs.
‘ You have to learn what your body can do to push your limits, and that applies in the gym as much as on the track’
