Tomorrow's the final day of the #RLYstrength challenge! Day 8 is an #anklestability exercise. If you've sprained your ankles running as often as I have you'll like this one! It will help rehab old injuries and resulting weaknesses in areas like the peroneus muscles of the outer shin.
1.) find an unstable surface like a stability disc/bosu ball/ pillow
2.) balance on one leg and slowly touch your toes with alternating arms.
*This is just a way to make it harder to balance*
you can also try : standing while closing your eyes (it's actually hard!) or having a partner push one shoulder... (or do any moving really, it's easy to almost fall off these things ๐Ÿ˜œ)
3.) try 3x5 touches each leg or 3x30seconds of balance and don't forget to tag myself and @runnersloveyoga with #RLYstrength for a chance to win sweet prizes from @saucony @polarglobal and @doyogarunfaster #runyourworld #findyourstrong #doyogarunfaster

Day 6 of #RLYstrength is a #medballthrow. Check out the last video post for instructions and tag myself and @runnersloveyoga with #RLYstrength for a chance to win some great prizes from @saucony @polarglobal and @doyogarunfaster ! #findyourstrong #runyourworld #doyogarunfaster

Tomorrow's (7/29) day 6 exercise of the #RLYstrength challenge is a #medballthrow
1.) I didn't throw the ball here so as not to hit my photographer (hi Kurt!) but I suggest having a partner or concrete wall to throw to
2.) throw over the leg that's up/not kneeling
3.) try to keep arms parallel to the ground and try not to rotate hips much (both of which I'm not great at here ๐Ÿ™ˆ)
4.) the movement should be driven more by core than by your arms
5.) when your partner/ the wall sends the ball back to you focus on keeping your balance.
6.) I used an 8lb ball- but if you can't get your form quite right it's better to use a lighter weight
Try 2 sets of 10 and don't forget to tag myself and @runnersloveyoga with #RLYstrength for a chance to win cool prizes from @saucony @polarglobal and @doyogarunfaster #findyourstrong #RunYourWorld #doyogarunfaster

Felt like a giant for a minute! Stretching in the #fairygarden #๐Ÿ€#whatarethesehousesforants

Day 4 of #RLYstrength is a #legraise/drop focusing on the Transverse Abdominals. For instructions see the last video post and don't forget to tag myself and @runnersloveyoga with #RLYstrength in your posts for a chance to win some cool prizes from @polarglobal @saucony and @doyogarunfaster ! #runyourworld #findyourstrong #doyogarunfaster

Tomorrow's 7/27 #RLYstrength challenge is a basic #legraise/drop. It's a good exercise for the Transverse Abdominals-a major core stabilizer, which is an important category for efficient running form. The keys here are to
1.) flatten your lower back into the ground and maintain that throughout the rep (I put my hand there to feel that I'm pressing down and closing any gaps)
2.) slightly suck in your belly button
You shouldn't be using your hip flexors much.
I shoot for 3 sets of 10, but if you start to fatigue and 'cheat' try 3x5 focusing on using those deep ab muscles.
Don't forget to tag myself and @runnersloveyoga with #RLYstrength to be eligible for the sweet @polarglobal @saucony and @doyogarunfaster prizes! #findyourstrong #runyourworld #doyogarunfaster

Thanks for the scenic run, Kilkenny friends! (๐Ÿ“ธKurt)
