"I have always said that a healthy runner is a strong runner. Most runners are quite good about putting in the miles, but actually concentrating on strength training is out of their comfort zone. The runner's gait is a kinetic chain...meaning that what happens in one area of the body has a profound effect on another part," saysRobert M. Conenello, DPM.

"I screen all my athletes by challenging them with simple tests. One such is a single leg squat. Running is a series of single leg squats. Many of these well-conditioned athletes are unable to perform this simple task. They may need to use their upper body to gain balance or they exhibit a drifting of the bent knee inward on the bent leg. These are indications of poor core strength as well as weak hip abductors. Simple exercises such as planks and clamshells can be performed to increase strength in these areas," says Dr. Conenello.
