    Great doing these videos but you need to do your research better. Even though it is classified as beginner you need to keep it real.
    More reps doesn't make it strength, you would better off going for a run. Load is how we increase strength don't confuse strength work with just doing a movement. Low rep, heavy load
    Glutes are not powerhouse for running you calves (soleus) are and the faster you go youth hamstrings.

    Will these exercises help with knee pain while running. I’m no physio but I think it’s it band syndrome

    Great video. Thank you. I recently have started running and ran my first half-marathon. I'm really out of shape sad to say. I've seen the plank on many videos. And it looked easy until I tried it watching your video. not easy! I definitely realized I have a weak core. And I need to do a lot more strength exercising. You wouldn't think I'm out of shape because I don't look like it. And I do physical labor. But I am. Thanks again.

    Hi there, great video! I wish I had invested time in these exercises when I was training for my first marathon last year. I had no upper or lower body strength and suffered as a result. I've got marathon number two in 7 weeks time and I've been incorporating these exercises twice a week into my training schedule.
    Do you think I should increase this to three or is that too much?

    exercises are great, but the rep range…. this could be on "how to get big legs"
    8-12 reps is for bodybuilders. (1-5 makes you stronger without getting BIG! and 15-20+ reps will ofc. not make you as strong, but atleast you dont get big bulcky legs….)

    Thanks for that Heather. Your firm was perfect giving me a clear guide to what I should be aiming for. I’m working on my hips and glutes to prevent injury as I’ve suffered several in the last year.
    Do you have any videos or tips to learn how not to favour one leg over the other because I think I use my stronger right leg much more than the left and that creates a strain and possible injury.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to
    get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a amazing job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Chrome.
    Excellent Blog!

  8. Tani Internet

    I absolutely love your blog and find almost all of
    your post’s to be just what I’m looking for. Do
    you offer guest writers to write content for yourself?
    I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write related to here.
    Again, awesome web log!
