Get those hamstrings ready 🙌🏾
I’ve put together four basic dynamic drills and stretches so you can do them as part of your warm up, training and sessions.
The hamstrings need to be warmed up, ready to 🔥 and stay away from injuries.
1. Forward moving single leg stretch
2. High kicks
3. In and out forward moving stretch
Make sure posture and movement is relaxed and forward moving. Even if you already do some of these, there’s always room for improvement in all of us...try and get the posture and rhythm working better ✊🏾
The first episode of #workoutdiaries on @indian.athletes YouTube channel is out tomorrow and it’s on Warm Up’s 😊
Hope this helps you in your running 🙏🏽

Good running form is such a crucial component for efficient running.
Picture on left: Walter is in the beginning part of the session and is fresh. Posture is strong and good. Relaxed shoulders and head.
Picture on right: Fatigue has set in as he is running the last part of the session. Posture is a bit more stiff. Shoulders are tighter and the head, neck are strained.
Now, as an athlete make sure that when the fatigue does set in, you don’t break your form:
- Keep your shoulders relaxed and FOCUS - The harder you push and strain yourself the more your form will break
What you should do:
- practice, practice, practice
- relax, relax, relax
- at all times, training or not, make sure you’re aware of your movements and you are relaxed. Simple running arm motion where you are focusing on efficiency is great for you. - Visualise yourself running relaxed
Only if your work hard at it, day in day out, will it click for you when you’re pushing it during fatigue.
Running economy is a training component that I focus a lot on with my athletes and I hope you can take a few tips from this to run more efficiently. 🙌🏾
