2019 HOKA ONE ONE Spring Track & Field Training, Week 1, Day 4, Thursday, why you need core training

| 0 Comments

Core work is one of the keys to your success in middle distance running. Elite runners know that nutrition, core, consistent training, sports psychology and a healthy coach/athlete relationship are keys of success. Find a core program that your school trainer and coach support.

I learned about core from reading about the European athletes in the 1970s, Joaquim Cruz (1984 Olympic champ, 800m). The differences at the end of the season means inches decide top placings. Core work is one of those details that makes sense in your final races. Core training is an investment into your future.
