About this course
Having a strong and engaged core is vital for any runner. It enables you to run at your best and make sure that you're not wasting energy needlessly when running through sloppy form and inefficient body movements that can result from weak core muscles.
As a running coach I realise that most runners just want to run and keep running. Very few will want to spend any of their precious free-time doing anything else. But setting some time aside consistently each week to work on strength & conditioning - is essential. Especially for "masters" runners. That means anyone over the age of 30.
This program has been specifically designed to be both progressive and time efficient too. So that you can be sure that you get to run as much as you can.
This module explains what the "core" is, why it's so important in running.
If you start to find the exercises in your routine are too simple and not challenging enough - don't fret. That's when you can dip into this section and add a bit of extra spice to shake things up a little.
Be warned - some of these moves are not for the faint hearted!
