Strength Training for Endurance Runners – Weight Training for Distance Runners – Big Toe Mobility for Runners
If you train distance runners, you need to know what types of injuries are the most common in endurance athletes in order to help them avoid problems. Jennifer Pilotti explains how to help these clients with a simple preventative plan of strength and mobility, which you’ll be able to put to use immediately.
“We need to improve the big toe mobility. This can be simple joint mobility stuff and soft tissue work. We need the runners rolling if they have areas of overactivity that need to be addressed. In this case, it would be the foot. Rolling the bottom of the foot can be effective in allowing a little more big toe joint and ankle mobility.” ~Jenn Pilotti
