My Favourite Strength Exercise For Runners

SINGLE LEG DEADLIFT 🏃‍♀️🦩 Top choice for runners and anyone who frequently stands on one leg (which is basically all of us by the way - watch how you walk in slow motion if you need proof!


✅ Strengthen Hamstrings

✅ Improving Balance & Stability

✅ Build Powerful Legs


🦩 Start initially by practicing with no weights

🏋️‍♂️ When you’re ready hold some dumbbells (or a barbell if you have one)

🍑 Add into your weekly weights routine 1-2x per week and see how you feel

In terms of sets and repetitions it would depend on your goal but start initially with lighter weights, 2 sets of 10 each leg, and over time you can increase weights as much as your legs can handle.

Give it a try next session and let me know how you get on.
