Here are your Three Running Exercises to do at Home that Cover the Main areas to Target:

Exercise #1: Scooter (Part 1)

Why do This?

As a runner, you want to be doing standing exercises as these directly relate back to running. The static hold on one leg helps to improve the endurance of the muscles, which will help with your running.

How to do This:

  • Start in step-standing, with your left foot in front and right foot behind you.
  • Bend the left knee and shift your weight so it’s over the left leg.
  • Keep your hips/pelvis facing forward
  • Slide the right foot forwards and backward

Continue for 45-seconds before changing to the other leg.

Exercise #2: Knee bend (Part 2)

Why do This?

As a runner, you want to be doing standing exercises as these directly relate back to running. Bending the knee and straightening it, is a similar movement to when you push off with that leg during a run.

How to do This:

  • Start in step-standing, with your left foot in front and right foot behind you.
  • Bend the left knee and shift your weight so it’s over the left leg.
  • Keep your hips/pelvis facing forward
  • Straighten and bend the left knee

Continue for 45-seconds before changing to the other leg.

Exercise #3: Scooter and knee bend together (Part 3)

Why do This?

As a runner, you want to be doing standing exercises as these directly relate back to running. Combining the right foot slide and straightening the left knee starts to mimic the mechanics of the legs when you run.

How to do This:

  • Start in step-standing, with your left foot in front and right foot behind you.
  • Bend the left knee and shift your weight so it’s over the left leg.
  • Keep your hips/pelvis facing forward
  • Straighten the left knee as you slide the right foot forwards. Bend the left knee as you slide the right foot backward.

Continue for 45-seconds before changing to the other leg.
