An Essential Tip for Runners to Improve their Performance!

by paspapt

Building a strong foundation of core strength and flexibility is essential for runners. “Joint stability” can also be described as “the ideal movement of a joint”. This occurs when a working set of muscles operates a joint versus the flexibility of opposing musculature, gravity, and other forces without disorder. Maintaining joint stability helps minimize the chance of injury, improves resistance to fatigue, and improves muscular endurance. Stability also helps improve your posture which can improve your breathing, balance, and running efficiency, as well as improving your energy transfer from the upper body to the lower body. Understanding how your joints are operating, and how they are supposed to operate, can greatly benefit you in making appropriate adjustments toward improving your running performance.
Happy Running!
