An injury free Winter’s training – Osteopathy & CORE STRENGTH

Core strengthening:

Core exercise programmes tend to focus on the trunk muscles ie deep spinal & abdominal muscles, however the gluteal or buttock muscles are just as important, particularly for runners.

Nutrition and a very special supplement…….

Quite simply minerals are the spark plug of life. Every biochemical process in the body is driven by enzymes. Enzymes are catalysts – they accelerate chemical reactions so that they occur quicker; and enzymes NEED minerals to work.

– To absorb protein you need minerals

– To produce hormones you need minerals

– To convert food into energy you need minerals

– To build muscle you need minerals

If you want to train harder for longer, if you want to run faster and if you want to grow bigger you need minerals BUT be warned! – the quantity and type of minerals humans require is very specific.

If you have had a busy summer of racing now should be a time of REST and RECOVERY. I will always recommend athletes having at least TWO WEEKS OFF after their last race of the summer season.
