These moves recommended by running coach Andrew Cheong of SSTAR.fitness have been useful in my training for the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon.
This exercise strengthens the back muscle. A strong back will result in good posture and a more efficient running gait.
- Face the ground, extend your arms and support yourself with palms and toes.
- Transition to rest on elbows, but continue to support yourself on your toes. Keep the back straight.
- Hold this position for 30 seconds and work towards up to three minutes.
