    What can a runner do during the time he/she is recovering from injury and not running

  2. Wayne W Bishop

    Fabulous. Wishing I had this level of instruction years ago when I first started.

  3. Sonya Mazumdar Sengupta

    if I don't have access to a step or bench, can I do the step-ups from a kneeling position?

  4. Djones24 jones

    hey I need some tips I've only been running since June 12th 2016 strated out 26 flat 5k now i am running 23 flat haven't run more than 30 miles in any give week. I average about 16 miles per week during the summer. now its winter I'm down to 7 miles per week. I weight 196 pounds 6 feet.. I would like to break 20mintes by the end of this summer what's your thoughts?

  5. Hank Donigan

    I'm an older runner and I have trouble with my balance doing step ups and split squats with dumb bells. I have done them without weights and I can tell they are good for me. Is it OK to substitute a leg press machine for step-ups? Can you suggest how I can cope with my balance problem and still do split squats with weights.? I'm betting I'm not the first runner you've coached to have these problems. Thanks for producing another great video!

    Great exercises. For those like me who's knees feel stressed with fixed movements, no matter how proper the form, try the stairmaster, placing only the balls of your feet on the steps and thrusting opposite leg high to knee is waist high. Killer total leg, ab and glute workout and cardio all at once.
