Here are few tips for each body part that will help you to be a better runner and help to prevent injury:
You have no doubt heard about your gluteals but did you know that they are a group of muscles that each has a different role? Or how important they are in providing support to the lower back and pelvis, and movement and stability at the hip joint? For a lot of us, our gluteals just provide cushioning for sitting at our desks! Do you experience any problems at your back, pelvis or hips? Have you suffered from recurrent hamstring issues? Take a moment to consider your gluteal muscles…
Have experienced a hamstring strain? If so, you will never forget it! If you haven’t, you have probably seen a sportsperson pull up suddenly, grab their hamstring, and wave to support staff for help. The dreaded “hammy strain” causes considerable pain and time off sport for professional and amateur athletes alike, and if not managed correctly can result in long term problems. Pat from the Pure Team has been out and about at courses to look at the latest updates in hamstring injury and management, and to share some info to better understand this injury.
