Another edition of Workout Wednesday! It’s been awhile since we hit the core, so I thought I’d give you another great workout to keep in your strength arsenal.
Whether you are an obstacle racer or not, these strength exercises will help power you through whatever path is before you.
Since we are supported on a single leg while running, it’s important to work on balance, strength and stabilization. When training on a single leg, we are also able to engage smaller muscles such as the gluteus medius and abductors which may not be fully activated in dual leg exercises.
Today’s workout will provide an intense and effective workout using the Tabata method. Tabata who? Named after the creator, Izumi Tabata, this training is one of the most popular forms of high-intensity interval training (HIIT). Pick an activity and go all-out for 20 seconds, and then rest for 10 seconds. Repeat.
