It's Fall, which means I've had an influx of private run lessons recently. Run coaches will tell you - every once in a while we see something unusual from athletes (kids and adults), but 99 times out of 100 it's the same things over and over again. What is really frustrating is that oftentimes the problems we see can be easily prevented with a minimal amount of prehab strength and flexibility work.
Today I want to focus on three key areas that I see causing trouble for a lot of young runners - quads, hip flexors and adductors. Read the following article to understand their importance, and how your young athlete can take care of them, especially during run-heavy seasons!
Have a fantastic Friday!
