PILATES FOR RUNNERS
Recovering from injury, need to strengthen, or wishing to improve running performance?
4 week course
Supplementing running with strength training exercises will not only help you prevent injury, but it will also make you a stronger, faster, and a more efficient runner.
One of the major reasons that runners get injured is because their bodies are unprepared to handle the physical demands of the activity. Tissue overload then occurs, which is often due to just starting out in the sport, or suddenly increasing your training mileage or intensity (like hill repeats). There may have been insufficient time for your tissue to recover and adapt, resulting in injury.
Don't let your aerobic fitness (endurance built up by running) outpace your structural fitness (bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles).
Strength work accomplishes three big goals for runners:
1 Prevent injuries by strengthening muscles and connective tissues, to better handle the loads while running.
2 Run faster by improving neuromuscular (nerve-muscle) coordination and power.
3 Improve running economy by encouraging coordination and stride efficiency.
These classes focus on running specific strengthening exercises, incorporating compound movement patterns; lunges and squats, with strengthening exercises around the pelvis and hips. We use a combination of body weight, bands and weights.
