In between runs

Long time no speak. Twenty-eleven, can you believe it?... Have you been active so far? Not really? Well, there is nothing easier than that. Just get into your good old runners and hit the road/park/beach. To make your run a bit more interesting I have 3 in-between exercise for you.

Lunges are a great exercise to strengthen most of the muscles in your legs. It involves balance and coordination. This is how it works: Stand up straight with your feet facing the front. Then make a bigggg step forward, bending your knees and lowering your body into a lunge-position (see image below). Make sure you keep the front knee at a 90 degree angle. Hold this position for one and then slowly push back up to your starting position. Repeat!


Love squats! Squats work your glutes, quads, hamstrings and calves all at once. Try it! Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart (feet facing straight ahead). Slowly lower your body, bending your knees towards the floor. Use your arms for balancing and keeping your back straight. Keep your knees behind your toes - make sure you don't go lower than 90 degrees (see image below)! Slowly go back up and start again.

Bar push ups

When you go for a run, you most likely come across a bench, bar or similar. Make a little stop to do some push ups. Check out our last article to read about how to do push-ups. Depending on how far away you stand from the bar/bench this exercise will be harder or easier. You decide!
