Strength and Conditioning Exercises

Training your endurance system for an ultra marathon like the Dixons Carphone Race to the Stones is only part of the story.

 

These tips will be suitable for all of the Threshold Ultra Trail Series events:

 

Over 100km your body’s muscles and connective tissues will take a battering, which is why it’s also important to spend some time working on strength and conditioning.

 

Reduce the risk of injury, speed up recovery time

 

A strong core and regular ‘self-myofascial release’ (sounds more complicated that it is!) will help increase blood flow and range of motion, reduce the risk of injury and speed up recovery time.

 

At Profeet we recommend specific exercises tailored to individual needs, based on your run assessment.

 

However, as a general guide, a couple of sessions per week incorporated each of the following exercises will be beneficial to all runners.

 

 

Hip and Glute Exercises

 

Ankle Mobility Exercises

 

 

Big toe exercises
