Phase II – Strength. Strength Everywhere.

During Phase I the focus was on building a strong base and foundation that would translate into faster and more durable running. Moving down the chain, Day 5 and Day 6 of RunSmart’s BaseSix Bootcamp move away from low-back and pelvis stabilization, teaching you how to strengthen your hips with runner-specific exercise. Days 5 and 6 target your posterior chain, namely your hamstrings, and glutes. These exercises are intended to mimic the running motion for better carry-over to the road. This training emphasizes how to incorporate the glute strengthening exercises from BasSix Days 5 and 6 into your routine.
