Best way to create a prehab routine? (Read 56 times)


    Have spent time googling / getting answers from others - but wanted to see if anyone had suggestions on best way to create a personalized prehab routine to make sure I don't get injured.  Any apps / websites out there that make it easy?

      Injuries are usually the result of over-use or weakness/imbalance. There are no guarantees of never having an injury but it helps to listen to small things before they become a major problem. Part of that whole listen to your body mantra. As for weakness/imbalances, find an activity to support your running -- strength training, yoga, swimming, weights, whatever suits you. There is no one answer to your question.

        Do you know of any specific imbalances or weaknesses? If so, you can focus on those. Otherwise, a well-rounded warm-up routine to do daily/often and a core/body weight strength routine 2-3x to week is a great place to start. You should be able to find many examples of each of those online.

          Greetings! "The Born Again Runner" (book) by Pete McGill addresses this in two categories:


          1. Basic strengthening/prehab stuff you should do regularly.

          2. There's a list of injuries, and if you've ever had one of them (or are prone to one of them) you do the prehab that goes with that injury, too.


          I think this is a pretty good approach.


          Best wishes,
