Should Fixing Many times the runners focus only on performing race training and, sporadically, doing some leg training in the gym. The training of the upper train and specifically the core is something that is usually left forgotten because “what I use to run are the legs.” Big mistake.
The core musculature or internal musculature of the central area of our body (transverse of the abdomen, multifidus, internal oblique, lumbar square, spinal erectors, diaphragm and pelvic floor musculature; in addition to the rectus abdominis and external, more superficial obliques) a very important force transfer function for the runner. This is how a trained core makes you a better runner.
What Everyone Is Saying About How A Trained Core Makes You A Better Runner And What You Should Do
The musculature of the core zone exerts a force transfer function, as it acts as a connection point between our lower train and our upper train. Our body is a “whole” in which muscles and joints are connected and influence each other: the core muscles are responsible for these forces being transferred efficiently. A good example of this synchronization of our entire body may be the influence of the stroke in our career.
In addition, the core muscles also have a stabilization function: the internal musculature of the central area of our body, if it is trained and compensated helps us maintain a good posture while we are running and thus avoid possible pain or injuries typical of runners like those that usually appear in the lower back.
Thanks to the transfer of forces and the stabilization of our posture we can be more efficient runners, spending less energy when running (useful for long-distance runners) or allowing us to run faster
