About The Book

Every runner knows that you need more than just sturdy legs to achieve personal best performances and to stay injury-free. To reach your optimal running potential, you need a strong and healthy core. Not only will having proper core strength give you toned abs and thighs, but it will also ensure that you maintain good form as your fatigue mounts, and ultimately will decrease your chances of succumbing to devastating injury. In The Runner’s Guide to a Healthy Core , celebrated orthopedic and champion runner Daniel Frey provides all the essential knowledge that is needed for achieving ideal core strength. Key pieces of information include:

A detailed description of how core functions when we run
Illustrations of key core stretches
Essential core strengthening exercies
A step-by-step guide to correct breathing while running
A catalog of the best—and worst—foods for maintaining a runner’s core
Home remedies to ensure that soreness doesn’t become injury
And dozens more professionally endorsed tips and tactics!

Complete with dozens of color photographs and charts, The Runner’s Guide to a Healthy Core contains all you’ll ever need to gain and sustain a strong and sturdy core strength. It’s a must-have for every runner looking to clock faster times and stay healthy and injury-free.
