A Very Large Percentage Of Runners Will Get Injured In 2017

Depressing—we know. The good news is you can avoid riding the pain train by doing some preventative measures. A study published in Medicine & Science in Sport & Exercise linked knee injuries in female runners with weak hips. Stop pain before it starts by adding squats, lunges, clamshells and bridges into your routine.
