Runner's FitKit can be customized to meet your individual needs and goals—the strength training program includes optional exercises for particular running conditions (hills, faster paces, uneven terrain) and for preventing specific running injuries of the foot, shin and knee. 

Included is a range-of-motion assessment to identify running muscles in need of special attention and a pullout chart with a stretching routine for the office. In addition, the manual contains chapters explaining causes and prevention of running injuries, how increased strength and power translate into better running performance, and special considerations for the novice and over-forty runner.

Often with overuse running injuries the problem isn’t “overuse” but rather “lack of preparation for use.” Inadequate strength and poor flexibility result in weak, tight muscles that increase the risk of getting a running injury. For example, weak hip abductor strength is linked to Iliotibial Band Syndrome, while excessively tight calves and hamstrings can cause knee problems for the runner. 

 

Runner’s FitKit increases not only strength and flexibility but also power and muscular endurance with exercises that mimic movements and muscle actions of the running gait. Therefore, the hip flexors are trained for their role in the knee drive (the primary propulsive force in distance running), the hamstrings for their braking action of the knee drive, and the shin muscles for endurance to help prevent fatigue-related running injuries.
