About Men's Running

Runners run – it’s what we do. And that’s ne – until we can’t. e older we get, the more chance of breaking down through injury. I admit, even the editorial team at Men’s Running has been slightly remiss in doing the stretching, strengthening and core work necessary to build an injury- resistant body. But the bene ts of doing these exercises are clear: fewer injuries, better recovery and ultimately faster running. is is why we’ve gathered together the best exercise routines we can nd. It would be slightly churlish to say that these can ‘bullet-proof ’ your body. But we know that if you add in just one of these routines in to your weekly training programmes, the results will be almost instantaneous. Pick the sessions that t for you: if you have weak knees, then choose one to strengthen that. Got a weak core? We’ve got that covered too. We hope you’ll use this as an invaluable training aid – and that you have plenty of miles of pain-free running.
