This page is dedicated to helping you become better with suggested tools and supplies. In my practice and online, I get a lot of questions about what stuff runners need to stay healthy. Below is a listing of some of the different items I’ve mentioned or recommended in different posts or in the clinic. Enjoy!
Keep those hips loose!
Many of you have watched the video on how to open up your hips to provide better glute activation and push off during your running stride. This will make you a more efficient and healthier runner. You do need one piece of equipment for this: a mobilization belt.
This mobilization belt is long, sturdy, and has a convenient buckle to make getting into and out of the exercise easy. If you are interested in this belt, either click the picture to the left or the link below to purchase through Amazon.
Open Up Those Muscles!
Using a foam roller is one of the best ways to stay on top of working out any tightness, stiffness, or muscle inflexibility you may be feeling after workouts. Using a high density foam roller is the best to open up your muscles most efficiently. Click the picture to the left or the link below to purchase the foam roller through Amazon.
Regain Foot Mobility and Stability by Stretching Those Toes!
In order to maintain proper form during running, you can’t forget about the toes! The toes need to have the mobility to extend during push off and flex to provide stability and proper propulsion during running gait. Yoga Toes can help to mobilize your toes when you’re not in the clinic. This little tool helps you stretch while you don’t have to do any work. As with any mobilization, perform your foot and toe strength and balance exercises after you get done with the Yoga Toes mobilization. Enjoy!
