Running Anatomy features 48 of the most effective strength exercises for runners, each with clear step-by-step descriptions and full-color anatomical illustrations highlighting the muscles in action. Each illustration helps you better understand how muscles, ligaments, and tendons all work together as the body moves.
Running Anatomy clearly links each exercise to running performance. You’ll see how to strengthen specific muscles and improve gait efficiency for faster times and more fluid runs. Plus you’ll learn how to eliminate anatomical imbalances that can lead to the most common injuries that runners face, including plantar fasciitis, lower-back pain, knee aches and strains, and torn muscles and tendons.
You’ll find variations to train for every condition and competition—for various terrains, speeds, elevations, and distances, from sprint to marathon. You’ll also learn how new gear and technology-enhanced equipment can maximize training and performance. Upon completing the book, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.
After reading the ebook and completing the exam, you will be able to do the following:
- Describe physiological adaptations to training for running.
- Analyze the biomechanics of running.
- Understand how environmental factors affect running training.
- Explain appropriate remedies for common running injuries.
