WEIGHT TRAIN­ING

Runner's World (UK) - - Coach -

‘I am a huge ad­vo­cate of weight train­ing be­cause I find that most run­ners are ex­tremely weak in their ham­strings and their glutes, and there­fore they rely on their quads to do a whole lot of the work,’ says Corkum. This im­bal­ance can lead to in­juries such as IT band syn­drome and runner’s knee. Corkum favours ket­tle­bells, which help ac­ti­vate sta­bil­is­ing mus­cles that wouldn’t be en­gaged oth­er­wise.
