AN­I­MAL MAGIC

Get down with low-gait train­ing

Runner's World (UK) - - WARM-UPS -

YOU MAY NOT WANT to be crawl­ing when you reach the fin­ish line of a race, but low-gait train­ing, which mim­ics an­i­mal move­ments, can help to im­prove your run­ning pos­ture, strength and mo­bil­ity, says Kris Roberts, a per­sonal trainer at Oneldn (oneldn.com). Here’s how to work your in­ner an­i­mal: per­form each vari­a­tion for 30 secs, rest and re­peat the se­quence three to six times. ‘Try to keep the move­ments fluid,’ says Roberts.

RUN­NING WILD An­i­mals tend to be much faster than we are (see p28), so why not take some lessons from na­ture?
