Skip that old-school hurdler’s stretch! Research shows that prepping your muscles with dynamic moves versus simply holding a position can help prevent injury and may even make running feel easier. (Who doesn’t want that?) Try 2 sets of these four exercises from Paul Vincent, owner of Training Adventure in Los Angeles, before you hit the road, trail, or treadmill. Then, after your run, cool down with the roller backbend.
A supportive sports bra, a pair of running shoes (click here for some of our faves), and a foam roller.
Try this with our 5 Weeks to a 5K plan.
