Strength Training Tip For Runner #4-Mini-Hurdle Hops
Mini hurdle hops:
Reserve plyometrics for more advanced training and make sure you have a good strength foundation first.
Plyometrics are fantastic for developing power and elasticity in your lower body. Runners need to be powerful and one way we can improve this is by getting strong and then incorporating plyometrics. Consecutive hurdles teach your body to absorb higher amounts of force safely and in a controlled manner. Start by doing the hops individually and as you get better do consecutive hops to reap more benefits and become a stronger and more powerful runner.
