Balance and Agility Exercises for Trail Runners

Trail running offers many benefits, but the uneven terrain requires greater balance and agility compared to road or track running. Exercises like jump roping, single-leg hopping and skipping can go a long way to improve your balance and agility so you don't sprain an ankle. Try these specific exercises at least twice per week to improve your ability to navigate the trails.
