Runners Exercises


Watch the below series of four runners exercises designed especially for runners by Simon Reid from Macquarie Street Physiotherapy. All these runners exercises use everyday items you have at home.

The first runners exercise will focus on strengthening the calf. The second will target the hamstring. The third features the Bulgarian Sit Squat and will help target your glute, quad and abductor and all you need is a chair and a weight. The fourth will feature the side plank. This exercise will help you avoid injury in your ankle, knee and lower back.
