Thirsty (for knowledge) Thursday: a "Runner's Leg Workout"

>> Thursday, April 23, 2020

About 10 days ago, I tried this workout that popped up on my feed):

It's pro runner Rachel Schneider showing you a good "runner's leg workout" in her garage. Here's the warmup that you're supposed do twice:

Honestly, I don't do too much "explosive" leg work. I'm used to pretty slow burns, with no jumping. And I do just a LITTLE side-to-side work, so my hamstrings already got a little upset with the first set of the warm-up. And my right one is still a little tweaked today. Damn.

The main main set (circuit 2) you're supposed to go through 3 times from start-to-finish:

I didn't do the final "ice skaters" as the side-to-side stuff in the warm-up didn't go great. But I DID like the "lunge jumps." Those were fun. So try the video workout above if you're interested!
