VIDEO: Endurance Strength Roundup- Running Drills

Welcome to the TrainingPeaks Endurance Strength Roundup video series. In each installment D3 Multisport coaches will show you quick, efficient movements with minimal equipment that are designed to be easily added to your multisport routine for increased agility, strength, power and injury prevention.

D3 Multisport's AJ Johnson goes over two running activation drills—the double-arm-reverse-swing and the heel-toe-fall-forward drill—that are great additions to your current running warm up.

The double-arm-reverse-swing will open up your shoulders and chest to encourage a more fluid arm swing, while the heel-toe-fall-forward drill encourages a proper forward lean for a more economical running position.

Try doing each of these drills before your next run and with regular practice you will begin to feel your running mechanics and speed improve.
