Watch me RUN…

Alright, obviously it’s not me. But this is #$%^ing beautiful.

It also brings me to a some points. Running is JUMPING on one leg, BALANCING on one leg, TOTAL BODY COORDINATION, TECHNIQUE, EFFICIENCY  and POWER. If you can’t see that, then take a second look then talk to me.

I hear this a lot in the strength and conditioning community: “You don’t run to get in shape, you need to get in shape to run.” Think about what this means, most people run and probably shouldn’t. Not b/c their body isn’t meant to. But b/c they have DEconditioned their body from its natural state then decide to run a long race or distance and wonder why their __________ hurts.

To run, work on  Reactive training (jumping, plyo, elasticity), Balance (static, dynamic, multi-joint), TBC (just do any variety of strength lifts and drills), Technique (for running, posture, foot strike…), Efficiency (form, core training, neuro-muscular training…), and POWER (Work/Time=move stuff fast)

PS:  the music is AWESOME
