Research has demonstrated that by following principles of training, you can safely, effectively improve running performance, regardless of the distance. In addition, adhering to these tenets, your performance and enjoyment will also increase.
As it is with many things in life, the more consistently you train (both general training and ACL prevention workouts), the better the result.
When training to improve results, the body must be steadily overloaded in a progressive manner. This improves results, but it also trains the body to tolerate higher and higher workloads.
Every part of your training should have a reason; there must be a purpose to every exercise–some strength, some explosive, some corrective.
Recovery must be built into any ACL injury prevention program. While there are exercises and activities that can be done daily, most programs require specific rest days and recovery techniques.
Depending on your training experience and previous running history, we offer different Running programs to help you safely achieve your goals.
