The winning combination
Contrary to what many can meditate, bodybuilding complements runners. In addition to this does not brake or reduce flexibility, but the other way around, a convenient training in bodybuilding will let you have a better step and a musculature exercised, which will be able to support your body in the right situation.
Therefore, to assist in progressing efficiency and timing, which are the most essential points, you will need to focus on strength training.
- Abdominal strengthening: For each and every one of the exercises of this set you will need to have a certain situation in arms and legs, this way you will achieve a perfect contraction in the abdomen. For example, the exercise proposed now, in which you start in a plank situation and leaving the body straight, you incorporate a few small jumps face the inside with your knees.
- Ankle Extender Strength: Each and every exercise that requires an ankle mobilization. This includes the seated or standing leg press and specific athletic and squatting exercises.
The choice of strength training is essential, but the intensity of the effort is equally essential. Indeed, for many sports, doing squats with one’s own anatomical weight seems sufficient, but it is not intense enough to force your body to conform, and therefore to prosper. It is for this reason that depending on your level of training cycles can be made series of five to fifteen reiterations, which means that the weight used must be heavy enough to make repetitions properly and even be able to do one more at the end of the series. In other words, you have to be careful!
Keep in mind that for certain beginners, however possibly over 1- three weeks, doing squats with anatomical weight is enough to start building the muscle, but from there progress will begin and weight will have to be added.
The result of this work will be more powerful muscles, which will leave a greater production of force for each action, a better use of flexible energy support, a defined posture, a harmonious body and therefore greater resistance to fatigue piled up throughout a race.
All these elements combined allow you to have more fluidity in the march and to prosper the times of chrono. All this simply by the fact that your body is more efficient!
