SRC E-News March 8


What. A. Day. Early morning on a Sunday again to catch up with Dwayne FitzpatrickLuke Whykes and Matthew Nunan over at Cohuna for a Bridge to Bridge Fun Run 6.5km.
I managed to pull off a win in 24:22. My first win in my short running career which is the confidence boost I needed and is the reward for the effort I have put in so far.
Plus indulging at the Waffle House was also reward for effort! Thanks fellas!

Incorporating strength training into your regular routine has a ton of benefits—it not only helps you become a stronger, faster runner, but it helps prevent injuries, too. And while deadlifts may seem intimidating at first, Noam Tamir, C.S.C.S., owner and head trainer at TS Fitness in New York City, says this lower-body move is worth keeping in your rotation for a few very specific reasons.

Deadlifts strengthen your glutes.

The deadlift move recruits a lot of muscles in the lower body, including the hamstrings and the glutes, says Tamir. Plus, your quads get majorly activated as you extend your knees and lift up the weight.

“Since the gluteus maximus is one of the main movers in this move, the deadlift will definitely build muscle on your butt,” says Tamir.

But wait, there’s more—Tamir explains that deadlifts also work your traps, along with your lower, middle, and upper-back muscles. And your entire core gets a challenge, since it’s responsible for stabilizing your spine through the movement.
