MAIN TOPIC: WHAT CAN RUNNERS DO TO PREVENT INJURY?
Being creatures of habit, runners have one very serious flaw regarding routine: we assume that everything is golden unless we get hurt. Working with Adam Homolka of Endurance Rehab over the years, we’ve learned just how not true that tends to be.
Today we tackle the topic of preventing injury with Adam. It doesn’t have to be a guessing game. There are a certain things that runners can do to prehab.
This is the Prehab Routine that Adam created for FREE for all of us! Thank you, Adam!
