Foam roller exercises for runners is the 2nd instalment of our 7 Series. A series of 7 workouts, each 7 minutes long with 7 exercises in each. These short and manageable conditioning programmes aim at making you stronger, improve your running efficiency and ultimately help injury prevention. They include exercises to help with:

We’ve developed a simple 7 minute workout tailored to runners.

After a good 8 hours sleep that leaves 16 hours of the day. 960 minutes per day. 6720 minutes in the week. Just 7 minutes out of 6720 can improve your running and help reduce your chance of injury. I’d say that’s worth a go!

7 Series | Foam Roller Exercises For Runners

Foam roller exercises for runners can be very useful to improve mobility and get you ready to run. Foam roller exercises for knee pain, foam roller exercises for shin pain, and foam roller exercises for ankle pain are all included. Gone are the days of just standing around holding static stretches for a few seconds.

Just 7 minutes of dynamic foam roller exercises prior to running will help improve your mobility and muscle power. Ultimately making you more efficient and less likely to get injured. In this video we’ve targeted the main muscle groups used when you run.

Foam Roller Exercises For Runners

You can repeat the 7 minute workout 2 or 3 times if you’re feeling good. Or try it out more than once in the week between runs.

As with all these exercises, if you experience pain at any point do not carry on and push through. Seek advice from a Physio. To help you recognise good pain vs bad pain take a look at our recent blog here
