Summary

BOOST PERFORMANCE, IMPROVE RESULTS AND AVOID INJURY — ALL THROUGH BETTER PLIABILITY

With over dozens of exercises and sport-specific workout plans—all backed by modern, field-tested science—PLIABILITY FOR RUNNERS is the key to achieving optimum athletic performance while breaking the injury cycle.

Recreational runners, cross country and track runners, competitive road racers and professional athletes across the globe understand the critical importance of taking proper care of your body. Without proper upkeep, muscle fatigue, repetitive motion injuries and the general wear-and-tear of day-to-day living takes its toll on our body, making it less coordinated, more restricted and less responsive to the demands of athletic activity.

Written by an exercise physiologist and coach at the Boston Running Center, PLIABILITY FOR RUNNERS changes all that. By offering a complete and thorough breakdown of improving your body’s pliability, runners of all skill and experience levels can take advantage of increased flexibility, stronger muscle resilience and better performance during (and after) workouts.

Pliability is the key to running injury free and outperforming the competition. Each year there are 50-60 million people in the US that run regularly, with over 50% of them suffering a running injury. Pliability (the loosening, softening and relaxing of muscles) is in the midst of a major 'movement' in the realm of professional sports, physical therapy and health/fitness to help offset these kinds of injuries.

PLIABILITY FOR RUNNERS also features targeted stretches and exercises perfect for every fitness level, helping to improve:
- Muscle strength
- Range of motion
- Explosive power
- Chronic muscle tension
- Endurance
- Flexibility

PLIABILITY FOR RUNNERS is the breakthrough book that redefines running performance and injury prevention.
