5 Cross-Training Exercises to Improve Your Running

Yoga – Often underestimated, yoga can benefit runners in more ways than one. Yoga works muscles that you rarely use, while giving the ones you do a rest. It’s also a great way to improve balance, which is extremely important for runners. Better balance often leads to improved running form.

These exercises will allow you to improve (or maintain) cardiovascular health, build and repair muscle, and keep you active, while giving your legs a break from the harsh repetitive impacts associated with running. Add one or two to your next marathon training schedule and you will surely yield positive results. I hope you’ve enjoyed these training tips.

I’m interested to learn more about your “off-day” habits. What exercises do you use for cross-training days?
